Looking for a comforting, hearty breakfast? Try this Healthy Crockpot Pumpkin Spice Latte Oatmeal! It’s filled with the cozy flavors of pumpkin and coffee, making it the perfect fall or winter breakfast treat. The best part about it is the crockpot does ALL the work! This post was made in partnership with NOW Foods.
You guys… breakfast.. in the crockpot… is HAPPENING. I didn’t think it could happen.. but here we are! It’s no secret that I freaking LOVE my crockpot. I personally think it’s one of the best inventions of all time. Really and truly, I just would like to hug the person who said ‘let’s invent something that will cook your dinner FOR YOU while you do whatever you want.’ IDK who they are, but they’re a genius.
I use the crockpot for anything and everything I can. Lemon Rosemary Whole Chicken, Paleo Turkey Chili, Healthy Pulled Pork are a few of my favorite recipes, one of which I usually make every week (that’s how good they are!) There’s nothing better than taking 5 minutes in the morning to throw a few things in the crockpot, only to come home and have dinner be 95% done. (It’s basically a dream come true). While I make dinner in my crockpot all the time, I can honestly say I’ve never made breakfast in it.. because up until a few weeks ago I didn’t even know what kind of breakfast I could possibly make in it!
The other day I got a shipment of goodies from my friends at NOW Foods. One of the things I had picked out to be included in my package was steel cut oats. I love to enjoy them in the winter time when it starts to get a little chilly out. I don’t, however, love standing by a stove for what seems like an eternity to cook them. Is it me or does it seem steel cut oats take forever to cook!? I was making them for breakfast over the weekend and happened to be cleaning up when I saw my crockpot and had an idea. I figured that since I cook the oats low and slow on the stove top.. couldn’t I just cook them lower and even slower in the crockpot?!
So that’s what I did. I obviously loaded them up with some yummy pumpkin, spices, and of course my favorite maple syrup. They turned out SO creamy and delicious! This is going to be one of my new favorite fall breakfasts FOR SURE!
- 2 cups NOW Foods Steel Cut Oats
- 1.5 cups pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon cloves
- 1 tablespoon ground coffee
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 5 tablespoons NOW Foods maple syrup
- 1 cup coffee
- 1 cups water
- 4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (can sub with regular milk or other nondairy alternative)
- Add all dry ingredients into crockpot + stir to combine
- Stir in coffee, water + vanilla almond milk
- Cover the crockpot + cook on low for 6 hours
- Note: It's best to stir occasionally if you can, but if not - it will cook just fine!
Things we used for this recipe: NOW Foods Steel Cut Oats, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, ground coffee, vanilla extract, NOW Foods Maple Syrup, Vanilla Almond Milk, Crockpot
I can’t believe I didn’t think of this sooner. The oats came out SO delicious, and they were so easy to make! This would be a great recipe to meal prep while you’re at home on a Sunday. I had pumpkin spice latte oatmeal waiting for me in the fridge every morning last week.. and I have to say – I was pretty happy about it!
Having a good breakfast is one of the most important ways to start off your day, and having an easy recipe like this all prepped and ready in the fridge can make your mornings that much simpler. I like to top mine with pecans and Omega 3 Seed Mix, both of which come from Now Foods! The quality of their products is unparalleled, and their prices are SO affordable. I did the math, and per serving, this oatmeal costs less than 50 cents! That’s way cheaper (and better for you) than whatever you’re grabbing from Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts when you’re on the run in the morning!
