There's nothing like waking up to a delicious aroma from your crock pot cooking you breakfast overnight while you were sleeping! How about the fantastic smell of pumpkin pie for breakfast?!!! Yes, you can eat these breakfast without any guilt!
Super healthy steel cut oats combined with pumpkin puree make this a winning breakfast for any household!
It doesn't look like much here but wait till you stir it up!!!
This recipe has been on my mind for weeks, as soon as the fall cooler weather started here in RI I knew I wanted to adapt my Overnight Banana Steel Cut Oats to make this with pumpkin.
Stir up up upon waking and behold the pumpkin and oats of your dreams!! You can add your sweetener during the cooking time or leave it without added sugar and everyone can add their own sweetener of choice on top. Perfect either way. 🙂
I topped mine with a little honey and a sprinkle of nutmeg!!

Looks amazing but I don't have a slow cooker. Could I make this in a dutch oven? For how long?

I just wanted everyone to know that I also had quick cooking steel cut oats, so I fixed on the stovetop. It only took about 15 minutes, and it's delicious!!
Thanks for sharing Karen!
Did you calculate in honey or a different sweetener in the recipe?
Made this last night and was really excited for it this morning and was very yummy...rich but yummy. However....it was overcooked on the edges and had a layer of burnt stuff on top. I was able to salvage some of it but I was curious if there was something to solve that issue? BTW....thank you so much for your recipes. I do not have a creative mind for cooking and am so thankful to have found your site. So please don't ever stop what your doing. Amazing!!!
I was so excited to make this last night but didn't have pumpkin purée....so I substituted 2 4oz organic unsweetened applesauce. Delicious!!!! Thanks for the recipie!! Our new favorite!!
