    I love this idea! I never thought to cook steel cut oats in my neglected slow cooker. Thanks!

    So glad you are on twitter now :) Just followed you!
    As for the recipe — this is a wonderful idea to break form the regular breakfast routine, and it must taste delicious with that coconut milk.

    can you use milled oats as it call for steel cut is there a difference

    • Heidi @ Food Doodles

      By milled oats, do you mean rolled oats? Steel cut oats are different, the oat is just cut into 2-3 pieces instead of rolled and flattened. They cook for considerably longer and absorb much more liquid so this recipe will not work with rolled oats. I hope that helps!

    Sheesh… I think I need a slow cooker now, just so I can make these. They look so good! I would never have thought of mixing pumpkin with coconut. Sounds like a winning combination, though!

    Beautiful pictures too! Makes me want to dig right in. (Oh how I wish!)

    And glad you’re on twitter now. Of course, I follow you! :o)

    I haven’t made steel cut oats in years precisely because i’m not a morning person and they just take SO long to make! I need to try this recipe – sounds perfect on a cold winter morning :)

    I have been doing steel cut oats in the crockpot for about a month now, but it hadn’t occurred to me to make a pumpkin pie flavor. Wow! Talk about packing a punch for your breakfast (and totally tasting like pumpkin pie). My oldest would eat pie every day of the week, so this would probably be very tempting for her.

    Love this! Trying this the next time, for sure.

    I have been making a similar recipe for years. In addition to the ingredients you have above I like to give it an additional protein and fiber boost by including ground flax seed meal, cottage cheese or ricotta , and an egg which I toss in the blender to smooth everything out and then proceed as instructed in your recipe. For the volume you are making above I would use:
    1 Cup cottage or ricotta cheese
    2 eggs
    4 T flax seed meal
    Although the flavor won’t change much from your recipe my granddaughter thinks it tastes like pumpkin cheese cake and it is the only way you can get her to eat oatmeal.

    I attempted to make steel oats in the crock pot last night without a recipe and it didn’t turn out good. I am going to try your recipe however I can’t use coconut (daughter is allergic) I wonder how it would be with almond milk or regular milk?

    If I would like to eat breakfast at 7am what time should I start this and would I cook on high or low? I’m sooo excited to try this!

    I am soo trying this recipe for tomorrow morning as a surprise — my children love oatmeal. It sounds quite tasty, AND I happened to have all the ingredients already, so in the crockpot it went. Looking forward to it– thanks!

    Do you know if you could substitute quinoa or wheatberries for the oats? My daughter seems to have an issue with oats.

    Sounds delish…however I’ve never used steel cut oats, only “regular” fast-cook oats. I assume that since they cook overnight that these would get too mushy (?). I guess I need to investigate steel cut oats. ;-)

    Have you tried this with the quick cook steel cut oats? I know that it won’t take as long to cook. I have the quick cook steel cut oats on hand. Thanks!~

    • Heidi @ Food Doodles

      No sorry, I haven’t tried using faster cooking steel cut oats. I did try this with rolled oats though and since they don’t need as much cooking they just turned to mush so I wouldn’t recommend it. You could always make this on the stove top with the quick cook oats if you want to do that. And if you do end up trying it you may need to adjust the amount of liquid too since they need less liquid to cook.

    Thanks Heidi! I was actually impatient (Imagine that) and went ahead and tried the recipe with the quick cook steel cut oats. I made them on the stove. I followed the recipe exactly except for the oats. It turned out perfectly. It took approximately 30 minutes to cook. Great recipe.

    This combination was amazing. The only addition I made was a vanilla bean pod that I removed in the morning. Sooo good!

    I made this last week, and it was delicious! I added a tiny bit of brown sugar and heavy cream when I served it. This makes a huge amount of oatmeal, but it reheats well. We ate it all week. It is really important to use STEEL CUT OATS if you are going to use a slow cooker! Thanks for a super easy, nutritious, yummy recipe.
