Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

The review and giveaway is now closed. Make sure you scroll down to view the Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal recipe from the book though.

Awhile back Kathy from Healthy Slow Cooking reached out to me and asked if I'd be interested in reviewing a copy of her brand new cookbook, The Vegan Slow Cooker. Without hesitation I jumped at the oppurtunity.

I had a couple of reasons for wanting to do this review and giveaway. The first is because I've been following Kathy for quite a while now and the recipes I've tried from her site have turned out wonderfully. Even though they are healthy, vegan recipes the meat eaters in my house gobbled them up. That's always a good sign :o)

The second reason is because Miss Maddy has lactose sensitivities and I knew Kathy would have some great offerings in her cookbook that Miss Maddy would love.

I also get quite a few emails, comments and suggestions for vegan and healthier slow cooking recipes. For those that are looking for any of those things, this is the perfect cookbook for you.

The first recipe I made from The Vegan Slow Cooker was Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal. I can not begin to tell you what a huge hit this was for breakfast. It was very filling and very delicious. I've seriously made it like 3 times since then... IN ONE WEEK! It's just that good. I've also purchased The Vegan Slow Cooker to give as gifts too. It's that good and that informative.

Kathy has been kind enough to let me share the Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal recipe with y'all. Here is how she makes that fall magic breakfast happen:
  • 1/2 cup of steel cut oats
  • 2 cups of unsweetened vanilla-flavored almond milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground allspice
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • brown sugar, for serving
  • chopped pecans, for serving


The night before oil the crockery of a 1 1/2 - 2 quart crock pot. Combine the oats, milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice and cloves in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 - 8 hours.

In the morning stir the oatmeal to get a consistent texture. Serve in bowls topped with brown sugar and pecans.
