  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup milk or non-dairy milk alternative
  • 1 cup rolled oats or steel cut oats do not use quick oats
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-3 Tbsp brown sugar or honey or maple syrup - adjust to taste
  • dried cranberries and toasted pecans for topping


  • Place water, milk, oatmeal, pumpkin purée, cinnamon and salt in slow cooker, stir and cover with lid. Set cooking temperature to low or warm setting (*see note below). Cook oatmeal for 6-7 hours. Add sweetener of choice, serve in bowls and top with dried cranberries and toasted pecans (or preferred toppings). Enjoy!


Some slow cooker brands get quite hot even on the low setting. The keep warm setting on the slow cooker we used yielded the perfect oatmeal consistency in about 7 hours. Adjust the setting and cook time up or down depending on your slow cooker brand.
