My 6 Ingredient Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats recipe tastes amazing and is so simple to make! 

Hi friends!

You know I couldn’t let October end without featuring one more healthy pumpkin recipe… right?  Well this one is even better because it’s only 6 ingredients AND is made Yasssssssss in the Crock Pot!  This recipe is also vegan… so you’re basically winning at life if you give it a try. 🙂

Just think about how yummy your house will smell Thanksgiving morning if you’ve got a batch of Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats recipe brewing!

If you haven’t tried steel cuts oat yet, you are missing out.  They are less processed, chewy, nutty and oh so delicious.  It’s a nice change of pace for regular ole’ oats.  The only downside is they take a good 30 minutes to make on the stove top, which for me is more work than I want to do most mornings.  Or should I say more time than I want to wait actually eat.

So the genius of this recipe is already ready for you to go!

There’s nothing fancy my Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats recipe… you just throw it all in the slow cooker and in the morning wake up to this!

Serve it as is or provide fun toppings like pecan, dried cranberries, coconut, honey or even chocolate chips… if that’s what you are in the mood for!  You can also add a splash of extra almond milk in the bowl, which always makes it a touch creamier.

Luckily this bowl only looks decadent!  It’s actually a totally healthy breakfast.   The oats and pumpkin together are actually good for you.  Actual pie… not so much.

As written the recipe only calls for a 1/4 cup of maple syrup… which you can adjust to your own personal taste and sugar preferences.

Plan ahead to make this Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats recipe for Thanksgiving… or I wouldn’t judge you if you decide not to wait and make a batch this upcoming weekend.
