"SO easy and SO good! This is comfort food for me at it's finest, my all-recipe friends! Like pumpkin pie for breakfast, but you don't have to feel guilty for the rest of the day! Use any sweetener you want and adjust to taste. Enjoy! I make up a big batch then reheat for the next mornings in the microwave covered. Vegan. I like to set it with a timer before I go to bed so it is ready in the morning." — Alison

Love fixing steel cut oats in the crock pot/slow cooker----I have used a reicpe comparable to this which is my fave---can also sub applesauce for the pumkin but reduce water to make up for the extra moisture in the applesauce versus pumpkin---try adding raisins, chopped apples ---yummm
I botched up this recipe badly. Don't do what I did: Firstly, this was too sugary (we didn't have Splenda brown sugar on hand and used raw brown sugar). My spouse and I both found that the high sugar content in our breakfast servings at 7:30am made us crash by 10am and binge on doughnuts and other sugary junk food at our respective work places. I later found Splenda brown sugar at a Canadian Superstore in the baking aisle. I also don't recommend using ED's pumpkin pie filling - I used that because that's all we had on hand. Use plain pumpkin otherwise you will over-spice like I did, since the pumpkin pie filling was already spiced. Sometimes our only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others...
After i started putting this recipe together, i realized i was out of brown sugar AND pumpkin pie spice. I added nutmeg to compensate and made it without the sugar. Instead, i sweetened it with stevia at the time of serving and it was delicious. My bf and I both thought this was great...like dessert for breakfast but healthy.
Made this the other night. I thought it was a little on the sweet side but my daughter loved it so much she asked me to pack it for her lunch the next day. Next time I make it I will use a little less sugar.
This is good, but way too much cinnamon. Next time I will cut the cinnamon at least in half. Otherwise, very yummy.
It was very easy to make but it turned out way too sweet for me. I used 1 cup of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. I think I should have used 1/2 cup. Also, it was very, very soupy. I prefer thicker oatmeal. Not sure I'd bother making it again, even if the recipe were modified.
We did not care for this recipe.
I really liked this, my hubby and kids not so much. I loved waking up in the morning and breakfast was done. I cut down the cinnamon to 1 T and only used 3/4 c brown sugar, regular not Splenda. Also I used 1 3/4 cup of Steel Cut oats and it was the perfect consistancy. I was worried when I first looked at it because it looked very soupy but once I stirred it up it was perfect. Topped it off with a sprinkling of brown sugar and some toasted walnuts. Yummy. Thank you for the recipe!
