‘Tis the season!! No not that season…not yet anyways! I mean the season of everything pumpkin! I LOVE pumpkin so much that I try to use it as much as possible this time of the year! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin coffee creamer, pumpkin roll, pumpkin bread, and now pumpkin pie steel cut oats! I have only recently because aware of how much better steel cut oats are for you vs. rolled oats so I looked up multiple recipes. Last time, my first blog post on here, was cinnamon apple steel cut oats https://aradiasilvermoon.wordpress.com/2013/08/25/crock-pot-cinnamon-apple-steel-cut-oats/.
- 2 C steel cut oats
- 1 15oz can of pumpkin(or about 1 3/4C)
- 1 400 mL (about 1.5 cups) or 14 oz can full fat coconut milk plus enough water to make 7C(about 5 1/4C water)
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp + 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 C honey or maple syrup(or leave unsweetened and add after it’s been cooked)
Mix all ingredients in a crock pot and cook 5-6 hours on low.
When done simply spoon up and enjoy with any topping you like!
I loved cooking this overnight because when I work up this morning not only did my house smell so good but a hot breakfast was waiting for me! I didn’t have to cook or prepare anything I could just serve it up and enjoy! It tasted like you crumbled up a slice of pumpkin pie and ate it in milk! So good! I can’t wait to have more tomorrow morning!
Tips from me:
#1 Any milk can be used in place of the coconut milk. I used a almond/cashew/hazelnut milk blend in mine.
#2 The temperature and time may vary from crock pot to crock pot. Mine has timed settings intervals of 4, 6, 8, or 10 hours so I started mine at 8:30 pm and set it on 10 hours so it would be done by 6:30 am and ready to eat!
#3 I didn’t have any honey or maple syrup so I omitted it (it cooked just fine) and I added brown sugar to my bowl and it tasted fabulous!
#4 It makes a lot so be prepared for leftovers if your family is small, like mine!
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!
P.S.: I would love it if my readers would post some pins in the comments section! I am always looking for new things to try!!
