Cooking Time:4-6 hours
Ingredients2 c. old fashioned (NOT quick oats)
4 c. water
1/2 c. pumpkin
4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
4 T. brown sugar, or Stevia brown sugar substitute
4 (1 g) packet Splenda sugar substitute (or Stevia)

When I think of the Fall season, I think of Pumpkin, I also think of Slow Cooker Pumpkin Oatmeal!
- Combine all ingredients in your crock. Adjust sugar if you do not like your Oatmeal too sweet!
- Cover. Cook on Low for 4-6 hours.
- Give your oatmeal a good stir, and serve with walnuts if desired. I enjoy this oatmeal with a honey latte or some great flavored coffee.

This recipe sounds wonderful. I am going to try this very soon. I noticed the nutrition facts does not specify the serving size or how many servings this recipe makes. Do you know what a serving size is? Thanks.
Hi Amber! This recipe is 4 servings. If you look at the top right-hand corner of the recipe pages, you will find the # of servings. Thanks & Happy Crocking!
I would like to use steel cut oats. How much water do you think?
Julie, you may just want to adjust the water once you put it together to make sure you have the right amount of liquid! Happy Crocking!
What amount of sugar would you use instead of the splenda/artificial sweetner. My coworker cannot use any artifical sweetners and I would like to make this for a breakfast potluck.
Hi Katrinka! You can sub 2 & 1/2 Tablespoons of white sugar for the 4 Splenda packets. Just a note, many people who cannot have sugar substitutes are able to have Stevia as it is all-natural and plant derived. I would definitely check with her before using it though. Happy Crocking!
Did you use dark brown sugar or light brown sugar?
Hi Jessica, I used light brown sugar. Thanks for the question and Happy Crocking!
Do you think I could use skim milk instead of water? I’ve done that with other overnight crockpot oatmeal recipes (e.g., apple cinnamon), and we like our oatmeal creamy.
Kristen, thanks for the question, and absolutely! Happy Crocking!
Did you used canned pumpkin for this recipe? Thank you…this sounds so good!
Yes Vicki, I did use the canned pumpkin! Happy Crocking!
Hi Vicki… I did use the canned pumpkin with this recipe! Thanks for the question, and Happy Crocking!
Could you use 1.5 quart crockpot?
Mindy it may be a little small for this recipe. The key is to make sure a crock is 1/2 to 2/3 full to crock properly. If you want a small batch, and want to cut the recipe in half, it should work???? Thanks for the question and Happy Crocking!
How large of a crockpot did you use to make this recipe? Mine is 4.5 quarts.
Delinda your crock pot will work. Rule of thumb is to make sure your crock pot is 1/2 to 2/3 full. Happy Crocking!

I used steel cut oats instead of old fashioned and it was virtually flavorless. Do I need to add more flavor because of the steel cut oats?
Hi Sara, I am sorry with the steel cut oats that it did not have the flavor you desired, when I made it we just loved it, so it must be with the steel oats there is more adjusting that is needed. This is good to know for others that read this. Thanks for the feedback….
Would it be ok to cook it on high? If so, how long would you recommend to crock it?
Is this proportion of oats & water the normal amount indicated on the oatmeal packaging? When I made our gluten-free oatmeal on the stove this morning, it was 1/2 c oats to 1 c water. Just thought I’d double check. I was glad to find this recipe using regular oats for the crockpot since all the others I found were for the steel cut oats and I haven’t seen any gluten-free yet! Those steel cut recipe comments seemed like they didn’t always turn out either! 😉
Hi Linda, Thanks for the question! We have several recipes on my website at GetCrocked.com for Oatmeal recipes, for both steel cut and old fashioned oats, and you will see they all vary, depending on the ingredients in the recipe. For instance with just the old fashioned oats the recipe is more true to the ratio for oats to water on your packaged oatmeal. Check the other recipes out, there are several different variations. Happy Crocking!
