    Could I substitute soy milk for the 1% milk?  I just cannot handle milk and have found the soy milk much easier on my stomach and digestive system!

  • This would be my favorite!

  • Carri says:

    I just put the lid on the crockpot with this in it! OMG it looks so good! I love pumpkin anything! I only had half of the pumpkin pie spice so I added a pinch of nutmeg and ground clove. I also added vanilla.. honestly, i don't know why I added the vanilla,, just seemed like I should. Can't imagine that it would hurt. (shrugs shoulders) OOOhhhhh, if this comes out half as good as I'm hoping, this will be my replacement for pumpkin pie during the holidays! I have been counting calories since April 12, 2012 (it's now Sept 1, 2012) and I have managed to lose 49 pounds. I have been scared to death of the holidays coming up.. the foods on here just might help me through! Can you Imagine this with a little frozen yogurt on top?

  • KellyAnne says:

    Do you keep leftovers in the fridge and how long does it keep? Thinking of making a batch but I'm the only one in the house that likes pumpkin so it would take me days to eat. If it is freezable, even better!

  • Tee says:

    Does this recipe cook for a much shorter period of time than other crock pot oatmeal recipes because of the eggs or the type of oats? I would really like a recipe I can start before bed but also like adding the extra nutrients from eggs.

  • Kathy says:

    Hi…..I cook lots of oatmeal in the crock. You can make half and cook it in a 2 quart crock pot. Wal Mart has them for about $10. It doesn't seem to get as hot and cooks a smaller amount perfectly. Hope this helps you enjoy more.

  • Sherry says:

    How many servings is this recipe? It seems a lot for a snack?

  • Mary Ann Beaudoin says:

    I love this recipe and I feel like I am splurging while eating healthy. My slow cooker is on its last legs and I am in need of a new one.

  • trisha5k says:

    sounds great I will have to try this one..

  • Abby says:

    What would happen if i decided to use the pie filling?

  • KathyC says:

    Question – in the opening you talk about steel cut oats, but the recipe calls for old fashioned. Can I use steel cut in the recipe instead?

  • Kristi says:

    The description in the above paragraph mentions starting this and letting it cook all night.
    The instructions state only on LOW 1 1/2 to 2 hours…I'm confused.
    I don't want to wake up to a burnt mess….this sounds too delicious!

  • Connie says:

    Just made this according to the directions for breakfast. It smelled wonderful! It was good, but it wasn't quite sweet enough for me. Next time I will add a little more honey. But, I will be making it again! Thanks for sharing.
