Crock Pot Pumpkin Oatmeal

Hi Bold Bakers!

During this busy time of the year like Thanksgiving and the Holidays you want to make your life as easy as possible so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with friends and family. I try to have everything ready to go from the desserts down to breakfast. You can prepare so much in advance and still have it perfectly fresh on the big day. That is how I discovered this recipe for Crock Pot Pumpkin Oatmeal.

Crock Pot Pumpkin Oatmeal requires no cooking! I’m serious, no cooking for you at all. Place all of the ingredients in the crock pot the night before and keep in the fridge. The next morning place the pot straight into the crock pot and cook. You don’t need to worry about a burning pan or even having one more pot on the stove.

Place the crock pot out of your way in the kitchen, and by doing this you divert the hungry traffic toward the crock pot and out from under your feet. Sneaky, right??

Crock Pot Pumpkin Oatmeal is a real comfort food. Eating it straight from the crock pot hot first thing in the morning is the perfect way to start off your Thanksgiving.  It’s sweet and creamy with mild spice.

    I had never been an oatmeal fan until I improvised something like a bit this a few years ago. The pumpkin definitely improves the wallpaper-paste texture of regular oatmeal, and adds great flavor. I’ll have to try it with the evaporated milk, bet it makes it richer. I had brought this to work on one of the rare cold mornings in Florida, and made a little topping bar of nuts, butter, whipped cream, coconut, and turbinado sugar. I also have made it vegan with almond milk. I’m on a hunt for more creamy foods to blend with oats – maybe applesauce?

      Hi Ann,
      you are a food scientist it seems!
      Oatmeal is a great food, simple, low in calories,low in cost, nourishing and it seems also to regulate cholesterol in the blood. If it were a new food it would be hitting the headlines!
      You are making a great job of inventing recipes to suit you. It is amazing how many flavors this adapts to. Applesauce would be good, banana is delicious, and with a little honey, maple or agave syrup, it is almost like a dessert. Carry on with your experiments, nothing but good will come from them. Thank you for being in touch and sharing your ideas,
      Gemma 🙂

    hey Gemma i’ve never liked oatmeal ,because all i ever put in it was brown sugar and i didnt have oatmeal often because of that, then i tried my aunt’s peach oatmeal and i liked it so maybe just trying new flavors was all i needed so i can’t wait to try this out

    When making the pumpkin oatmeal in the crock pot can one use the plastic bags they make for stew and such?

      You can Ruth no problem.

      My sister in law used them for crock pot mac and cheese and they are genius idea.
