CrockTober Fest – Pumpkin Overnight Oats

 Easy, healthy steel cut oats, made in the slow cooker while you sleep! With pumpkin, cinnamon, and vanilla. This is like eating a pumpkin muffin warm out of the oven. 

Pumpkin Overnight Oats.

  • 1 1/2 cups steel cut oats (do not substitute quick cooking, instant, or rolled oats)
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cups milk, any kind you like (I will use unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1/8 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal (or swap an equal amount of chia seeds or hemp seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves or allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Place all ingredients in the crockpot and cook 4 hours (on high) or 7 hours (on low) ​Since I am up well before my kids, I can put this together the night before and get the crockpot going at 4:30am. Otherwise just let it cook on low all night long. You'll wake up to all sorts of yummy smells.

Happy Crocktober,

Coach Nancy
