Poor oatmeal! It’s so often thought of as a boring breakfast. But it doesn’t have to be!

Oatmeal makes a great blank canvas for your favorite flavor combos. I really like to do desert-y flavors for my oatmeal. It’s a healthier way to indulge!

This Slow Cooker Overnight Pecan Pie Oatmeal takes the flavors of maple and brown sugar (think maple + brown sugar oatmeal x100) and pairs them with creamy, steel cut oats.

Add in crunchy pecans on top for some texture and crunch, and you have a yummy breakfast that you can prep the night before and enjoy in the am!

    What is the best way to store this and then reheat it?

      I store it (just the oatmeal) in a container in the fridge. I reheat it in the microwave with a little additional milk and then top it with the brown sugar and pecans.

    Tried it today, and it was delicious. After the first few spoonful’s I added some pieces of sliced apple and some dried maraschino cherries; not necessary but I usually put these in my “regular” oatmeal

      Thank you! I had thought about adding apple to this oatmeal, too. Sounds like I’ll have to try that next time!

    Can you use regular oats instead of steel cut oats?

    • Reply

      No, regular oats won’t work. Since the oatmeal cooks for such a long time, regular oats break down more and will end up like mush.

    Just curious if so I milk or almond milk is able to be used in place of the evaporated milk. Have you ever tried it?

      I have tried dairy milk in the crock pot but found that the long cooking time can cause it to separate or curdle. I’ve used evaporated milk and canned coconut milk without any issues. I’m currently working on an overnight oatmeal recipe that uses almond milk. Hope that helps! =)

    What is “maple flavor”? I have never seen or heard of it.

      It’s concentrated maple flavor – like an extract. It’s sold with the extracts, and I’ve seen it called maple flavor, maple flavoring, maple extract, or mapleine. Hope that helps!

    I would be making this recipe just for myself. Will it be okay to cut the recipe in half? Would this reduce the cooking time? Would I be able to save the leftovers for the next day (or more?)

      I would guess that you could cut the recipe in half. You’ll just want to use a smaller slow cooker so that your crock is at least half full. I’m not sure whether you would need to reduce the cooking time, but I do know that you can save the leftovers.

    How many servings does it make? Can recipe be doubled in a larger crockpot?

    • Reply

      The servings are a little smaller with this, so approximately 10 servings. I haven’t tried doubling it, but I would guess that it would work! Good luck!

        I’m a little confused: 1 cup of oats makes 10 servings?

          It doesn’t sound like much with just 1 cup of oats, but the oats absorb the liquid, and they end up filling most of my 2 quart slow cooker by the time that they’re finished cooking. I believe 1/2 cup of cooked steel cut oats is the recommended serving size, and that’s about what we go with.

    Looks delicious! Could I put maple syrup instead of the maple flavour? If so, how much would you suggest?

      Thanks! You could, but maple flavor is very concentrated and packs a much bigger maple punch. I think if you want to skip the flavor, you’re better off just topping your oatmeal with some maple syrup at the end.
