  1. 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!

  2. 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?

  3. 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!

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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

    1. Essie, We have the data for this recipe and all others on the site. Just scroll down to find the data in a gray box. Thanks!

    1. 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. 🙂

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

    1. 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!
