Anytime Breakfast Option
Another great perk to this oatmeal is that people can eat it at different times. If your house is like mine, everyone doesn’t wake up at the same time. I often end up making 4 different breakfasts as people get up.
With pumpkin pie oatmeal I just turn it on warm when I wake up and everyone serves themselves when they’re ready to eat.
I always make this crockpot oatmeal when guests stay over, since they can eat whenever they want too! And what a yummy, no stress way to greet them in the morning!
Can I Reheat Oatmeal?
If you have leftovers of this oatmeal, you can store it in an airtight container and reheat it on the stove or in the microwave. You may need to add a little milk when reheating to get the desired consistency.
Why Steel Cut Oats?
If you haven’t had or heard of steel cut oats before, they are whole oats that have been chopped into two or three pieces with steel blades. Unlike rolled oats, which are chopped finer, steel cut oats are less processed and retain much more of their nutritional value. They are also high in fiber and prtein, which will help you feel full longer.
Steel cut oats don’t raise your blood sugar as quickly as other oats, which is great news for diabetics or anyone wanting to maintain a healthy weight.

The steel cut oats I use in the pumpkin pie oatmeal are also gluten free since we are gluten free in my house. My favorite brand is always Bob’s Red Mill and I just buy them online because I use them all the time! Here’s the link! If you aren’t gluten free you can use any kind of steel cut oats. Ok, now you’re a pro on steel cut oats..let’s get cooking!

Gluten Free – I make everything gluten free in our house because my husband has celiac disease, which is when you are allergic to gluten. Oatmeal is actually gluten free but there can be cross contamination when it is farmed or processed in a facility with other grains that are not gluten free. That is why I always use gluten free oats like Bob’s Red Mill.
If you are not gluten free swap the gluten free steel cut oats for any steel cut oats.
Need A New Crock Pot?
My favorite is this Crock Pot 7 quart Programmable Slow Cooker. First and foremost, I love being able to set the timer in case I’m not home when the food is finished cooking and it just switches to warm. Plus you can lock the lid and just carry it to a party. Not only is it easy to carry but also you will never lose another Tupperware or serving dish again at a potluck party!
