    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!

    • skinnyms  February 25, 2012

      Kelly – Yes you can!

    This would be my favorite!

    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?

    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!

    • Skinny Ms.  September 6, 2012

      Kelly, Oatmeal dishes are always best eaten right away. However, you can refrigerate and reheat and I'm sure freezing would work as well.

  5. Tee  September 8, 2012

    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.

    • Skinny Ms.  September 11, 2012

      Tee, I've never cooked overnight. Yes, this particular recipe takes a lot less time.

  6. Kathy  October 4, 2012

    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.

  7. Sherry  October 10, 2012

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

    • Skinny Ms.  October 10, 2012

      This is my pre-workout snack today. I need a larger snack when I'm doing a hardcore workout, like today!

  8. Mary Ann Beaudoin  December 8, 2012

    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.

  9. trisha5k  February 17, 2013

    sounds great I will have to try this one..

  10. Abby  September 14, 2013

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

    • Skinny Ms.  September 16, 2013

      Abby, The reason we don’t suggest filling is because it has refined sugar.

    • SkinnyMs  March 3, 2014

      It would be sweeter and you should then omit adding any other spices or sweetener.

  11. KathyC  September 16, 2013

    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?

    • Skinny Ms.  September 16, 2013

      Kathy, Yes you can, just adjust the amount of liquid for steel cut oats.

  12. Kristi  September 17, 2013

    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!

    • Skinny Ms.  September 18, 2013

      Kristi, I would recommend following the instructions.

  13. Connie  October 20, 2013

    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.

    • Skinny Ms.  October 20, 2013

      Connie, Some like Pumpkin Custard less sweet and some more. Just a tad more honey will do it! 🙂

  14. essie  November 6, 2013

    Do you have the Nutritional information for these recipes? I love them and love sharing but I like to provide these info as well 🙂 thanks

  15. job  September 10, 2015

    I have Quaker oatmeal oats, but they are the quick oats. Is it okay to use these?

    • SkinnyMs  September 11, 2015

      Hi Job,

      I wouldn't recommend using quick oats in the slow cooker. Instead, just cook on the stove top and it should work fine. 🙂

  16. Jenna  October 7, 2015

    Would quinoa be a good substitute for the oatmeal?

    • SkinnyMs  October 10, 2015

      Yes, except it only takes quinoa 15 minutes to make. I would suggest cooking on the stove top instead of the slow cooker. 🙂

  17. Sabrina  December 11, 2016

    Can you make this in the oven? If so how long and what temp?

    • Nichole Furlong  December 11, 2016

      Hi Sabrina, I would not recommend making this in the oven. The slow cooker cooks at a much lower temperature to prevent the yogurt and milk from curdling. Perhaps we can create an oven safe pumpkin custard oatmeal recipe in the future!
