Pumpkin-Pie Oatmeal

Oh yum. I threw this together a few nights ago, and we woke up to the most deliciously fall-smelling morning. It's like eating a steaming bowl of pumpkin pie and baked apples for breakfast! This is delicious, nutritious, and has just the right amount of sweetness.

I used my  smaller 2.5 quart Crock-Pot and this recipe filled it up! It's been great re-heated throughout the week too. Look for an organic pie-filling that is sweetened with actual sugar instead of corn-syrup, or use your own pumpkin puree with added spices and sweetener.

This is best eaten on your porch, wearing a comfy sweater and slippers. Admire the steam rising from your bowl, and enjoy!!

Overnight Crock-pot Pumpkin-Pie Oatmeal
2 apples, peeled and cubed
1 can of pumpkin pie filling
dash of salt
4c old fashioned oatmeal (NOT Quick-Oats)
7c water

Optional but delicious toppings:
dash cinnamon
splash of milk
toasted almonds
carob chips

Peel and chop your apples. Combine all ingredients, and mix thoroughly, incorporating all bits of pumpkin into mixture. Cook on Low setting in Crock-pot overnight, or for 6-8 hours.

(I'm sure you could make this on your stove too!)

Nomnom. Enjoy your fall!!

Lots of love,


  1. Oh my gosh! This is incredible! I MUST make this :) Thanks for sharing Lindsey!

  2. yummy! I can't wait to make it and have my own fall in a bowl!

  3. looks awesome! ps - what's in pumpkin pie filling. i can only buy that here for waaaay expensive - so cooking pumpkin myself is a better bet. what else would i add?

  4. Oh my goodness! I love pumpkin anything, and this might be my new favorite thing! How perfect that I just bought some oatmeal :) Going to pin this. Thanks for linking up!

  5. Alina,
    Pie filling is just the pumpkin with added spices and sweetener. Just bake a pumpkin, and mash with sugar, and ground cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, star anise, etc.. That's it!

  6. Hi! Stopping by from the fest! I am obsessed with pumpkin & oatmeal, so I will definitely have to give this one a try. Thanks so much for sharing!
