I used Bob’s Red Mill oats which are gluten free. 1=2 wwp+ [ ]. Add all the ingredients into slow cooker and mix well. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. If you have a programmable slow cooker, set it to cook on low for 7 hours and then switch to warm.

In the morning, give the oats a good stir as the oats will settle to the bottom. Each bowl is bursting with warm spices, tenderly cooked pears, naturally sweet pumpkin puree, and nutritious oats. Grab your trusty slow cooker and let’s get to it!

  • I love this! I’m totally making this. I’m starting to experiment with new crock pot recipes and this just went to the top of my list:)

  • These recipes all looked so delicious. I have made Oats a new part of my everyday diet for heart health. Thanks so much for always putting out great recipes and content. Happy New Year.:)

  • Normally I am a Crockpot cook, but these overnight stovetop oats are FANTASTIC! I would never have known steel cut oats could be made so easily. The least fussy topping for me would be simply take a teaspoon of natural/ unbleached cane sugar (I’ve bought a bag at the Dollar Tree for $1 before). Another topping I like would be maple syrup. I am not crazy about bananas, but half of a banana, sliced, would be good too. Or, maybe use the little box of raisins. Those are good. Thank you for creating and posting this.

  • LOVE IT!>>> ur2.pl/1064 (You cannot set it to start at a certain time but that’s not a deal breaker for me). You can set it to run on HIGH, LOW for X hours which is really nice! I love the locking handles too!

  • i’m told the rolled oats just turn to mush in crockpots. a good crock pot oat is the STEEL CUT, they deal with all that long heat best

  • that looks amazing i have over 100oz of pumpkin in my freezer and i have been dying to make pumpkin oatmeal and tbat looks super easy!

  • omg!!! i made this last night and had it for breakfast this morning. it was freakin amazing. my almost 2 year old couldn’t shove it in her mouth fast enough. even my husband liked it and he isn’t a huge pumpkin person. thank you so much for sharing!

  • I always wondered why steel cut oats were “healthier” than traditional (non-quick cook) rolled oats. I know they are all in the same ballpark as far as glycemic load goes, and they all have approximately the same amount of fiber, protein, calories, and other nutrients. Is it just because they are purely a “less” physically processed food then the rolled oats?

  • In the Microwave, try using the defrost setting for 15 minutes. This way it should not boil over. give a stir and taste. cook until desired taste.

  • EllesBelles, steelcut oats are not the same as rolled oats. Steel cut are simply groats cut in half, before they are processed and flaked into what most people know oatmeal to look like. They take longer to cook, so they are low-glycemic and have less of an affect on your blood sugar.

  • This was seriously amazing!!! My husband even loved it and he hates oatmeal! We used fat-free milk (all I had on hand), but next time we will be using coconut.

    Also, how long will this keep in the fridge/freezer?

    Thanks for this great recipe:)

  • Or….. use an oatmeal maker. $15 on amazon! But this is a good beginners guide. Thank you! Microwave never works for me! I cook mixed berries on the stove top for 10 minutes and we have chunky cold berry syrup to add! Banana, pb or almond butter also!

  • We microwave steel-cut oats in approx 4″ diam by 4″ high Corningware stoneware mug (has a side handle). For an individual serving, we add 1/3 cup steel-cut oats with almost 1 cup hot water (the same water we heat to make tea or instant coffee), a dash of salt, and I add heaping teaspoon of chopped peanuts to reduce boil-up and for flavor. My wife skips the nuts. Our microwave is 1100 watts, so time is 3.5 to 4 minutes at 60% power (power level 6). After cooking we add 12-18 frozen blueberries or mixed berries which helps to cool somewhat the hot oats. We eat with dried prunes, dates, 1/2 sliced banana, 1/2 apple, or 1/2 fresh pear, or whatever you want. A friend likes yogurt or cottage cheese with his hot oats. Often we cook old-fashioned rolled oats the same way, but with 1/3 cup oats, add 2/3 cup hot water, cooking about 120 seconds at power level 7. In a small 600 to 700 watt microwave you could cook at about full power. We use our microwave a lot to save time. Many frozen entrees include heating/cooking directions in a microwave.

  • Awesome ��and so yummy��too!
    I would like to try all…but mostly prefer the first demonstration…the stove top!❤️Once again thanks for that fine demonstration!✌��❤️������

  • I cocked it with just water and it was on oven like an our……
    It doesnt look mushy like these
    And my was like i don’t know Cement so blacky

  • Can you bake with steel cut oats?? I have an almond flour pancake recipe involving large flake oats.. Is there a way I can substitute it for steel cut oats?

  • I’ve never tried cooking my oats in the microwave but I do blend it for a smoother texture. I just like it better that way. Creamy and smooth

  • I have been making my oats in the crockpot. I use fresh chopped apples and cinnamon for added flavor. Yummy delicious! Think I am going to try the stovetop/overnight method. Looks like they are very creamy. Thanks for the video!

  • I accidentally bought steel oats the other day. I had already opened them so I couldn’t return them to the store. Thanks S0 much for showing me what to do with them!

  • Hi, I make mine by adding unsweetened almond milk and pinch of cinnamon, then leave it in a mason jar in the fridge over night. Take it out in the morning pop it in the microwave for 2mins, I like to stir it halfway through. I usually leave it for a couple of mins to let it cool and that’s it, perfect every time ��

  • Love method #3, which I learned from an older video of yours! Before I cover and leave, I add my raisins and chia seeds. I add nuts and cinnamon in the morning. Love all your vegan-friendly content.

  • I’ve always wanted to know how to make steel cut oats in the crockpot. It looked so easy. I never thought about using a cinnamon stick. I wonder if I could add a can of pumpkin to it? Thank you for this.

  • Wow I never new the way I eat had a hashtag lol! I have made steel cut in the microwave and had success just once… used the same bowl again and always spills over now! Perfect timing for this vid I am so ready to try stove top❤️

  • Trying the stove top first to see how that goes with the steel cut oats. Dam, I have just read again Tammy Hill’s comments about the Coconut milk. I’ll try that next time.

  • This was a wonderful video, and yes I made stove top ones! Made the leftovers again this morning for my hubby and he loved them! Thanks Dani!

  • Thanks for this! I have had good luck cooking in the microwave at about 60-70% power, so just when they look like they’re gonna overflow they go back down. Just have to watch the first couple of times and see how your microwave does:)

  • Hi Dani, I usually put the microwave on high and usually for 1.5min to 2 min max. Anything more than 2 min will result in the overflow. If needed, I’ll do extra 30 Sec for the 2nd time.

  • Nothing better in the morning than creamy oatmeal. If your slow cooker doesn’t have a timer, purchase a timer ( http://www.simpletouchtimer.com/), which is available from amazon. I also use this timer in the bathroom for my electronics, and when using a space heater.

  • Thank you for this variation video on steel cut oatmeal. I thought I would like the crockpot method, but I think the overnight stovetop method would be better. Then, I saw other comments, and like you, I have to get an Insta pot��.

  • I usually do mine in the microwave but only single serving. You don’t have to touch them for the first 1/3 of cooking time but afterwards, you have to keep an eye on them and have to stir them more and more frequently. Do not add any milk until the entire cooking is pretty much done. Non dairy milks could probably work since they’r pretty much nut/rice juice as opposed to actual milk.

  • Your steelcut oats don’t look like steelcut oats. They look like flaked oats. Steelcut should be in little pellets. Can’t wait to try this recipe though!

  • Whoever made this vid: thank you for this.
    My mom just came down with diverticulitis. It’s mild, but painful. We’re putting her on a liquid diet and then a high fiber diet once her pain goes away because she can’t tolerate the antibiotic regimen.
    We heard steel cut oats are very high in fiber, so this tutorial is a godsend. Thank you again.

  • I used a medium Pyrex bowl, added 1/4 cup of steel cut oats, dash of salt and 1 cup water in the microwave. I set the time for 18-20 minutes at 50% power level. I kept a close eye on them. It would boil towards the top of the bowl but when the power cycled off it would go down. As it reached 17 minutes I pulled the bowl out, added frozen berries. cinnamon and some honey to sweeten. I let it finish cooking for 3 more minutes. Worked great……..

  • I cook mine in my instant pot. Only takes ten minutes! Use the delay function and wake up to hot goodness. Don’t use milk to cook them on delah. Only water. Thanks for vegan meal prep video. Got my bok choy today��

  • The pumpkin oatmeal is really good BUT apparently I have a SUPER crockpot lol and needed to have it on the ‘ keep warm’ setting not low. I had to add extra milk to it this morning and it was a little bland for my liking so I added a touch more of the spices and same with the honey.

  • I follow the directions you gave on a previous video for making steel but oats which is the first way you describe in this video. i think ill stick to that way because its easy. i usually top mine with walnuts and blueberries and mix stevia and cinnamon in it

  • Dani I love steel cut oats and I found quick 5 minute cooking steel cut oats at Walmart. I love them with almond milk and cook them with a chopped apple and cinnamon and nutmeg very apple pie tasting.

  • My toppings relate to the weather or mood… if i want something warm i add cinnamon powder & cubed apple or coconut flakes & cacao nibs, if i want something fresh i add berries

  • I am a massive oatmeal fan and I have it almost every morning for breakfast, I make it with a 1/2 cup of oats, 1 cup boiling water from a kettle and then put it in the microwave for 30seconds1minute and voila! it tastes delicious and only takes about 5 mins to make! (However I don’t use steel cut oats I use rolled oats).

  • I eat steel cut oats every morning I do use double boiler have tried instint pot crock pot but now I’m on oatbran very easy just add hot water ��

  • i’ve heard from other crock pot ‘gurus’ that rolled oats become mush in the crock pot (because of all that heat for a long time). steel cut oats do best in the crock pot (which is heartier and needs long cook times to begin with).

  • I use instant pot. 5 cups water, salt and 2 cups oats. Pressure cooker 4 minutes. I do this once a week and refrigerate 3/4 cup servings for the week. I heat for 2 mins in microwave and serve with raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and walnuts!

  • I make them in my Instant Pot you can set them up to cook and walk away no stirring, no watching. Takes about 20 minutes start to finish.

  • Yum! I’m going to try this. It would be great to make Christmas Eve so you don’t have to cook in the morning. Also, on a totally unrelated topic… I ordered a baltic amber necklace from Hazelaid after watching your teething videos (for myself, no kiddos just yet..though I’m a full time nanny for triplet 4 year old boys so I consider myself part of the “mom” community by default!)…and I love it! I will be getting them for my babies when we start our family next year. Thanks for the info!

  • Hi! To prevent the excess of foam you should put a little butter or any kind of oil in your water…..you have surely noticed that you have less foam when using the crockpot method..it is due to the fact that you grease your pot prior to cooking the oat…hope it helps for the microwaves cooking..thank you for you recipes and tips.

  • Just made this, absolutely delicious! I love oatmeal and this was a great treat. I usually make oats with 3 cups water/1 cup milk and add peanut butter and raisins

    I think I can split this up into 4 servings to eat in the morning. Did a calorie count per serving if you are interested (care of Lose It!):

    Milk, Skim / 1 Cup/ 83 cal
    Oats, Steel Cut / 7 Tablespoons / 263 cal
    Honey /1 1/3 Tablespoons / 85
    Sugar, Brown / 1 1/3 Tablespoons / 70 cal
    Pumpkin Mix / 2/3 Cup / 53 cal
    Total: 554 cal

  • I just put this in my crock pot at 11 pm, for the first time. Fingers crossed! I LOVE pumpkin pie for breakfast with coffee, the day after Thanksgiving. And I love oatmeal. So win win for me! First time trying out steel cut oats too. Thanks for the inspiration:-)

  • 1:06
    I’m trying to go all-milk, but I can’t seem to boil the milk without burning it! I tried putting in a little bit of cold water, a spray of cooking oil, and then a quart of skim milk, set the burner at “MED”, and after 30 minutes, it was only at what I’ve seen called a “half-boil”, but I could already smell the burning. I added the oats at that point and stirred constantly. After another 30 minutes, the oats were still not fully cooked, still somewhat soupy, yet the bottom of the pan was covered in a thick, black burnt substance. This was my second consecutive failed attempt. The prior one was worse, because I tried to boil the milk with the stove set to “HI”, and then I tried to cook the oats with the burner set to “LO”. But even on MED, the milk was burnt, AND the oats were undercooked after half an hour. How do you accomplish this?

  • i did the croc pot method and it was over cooked. i added sunflower seeds and raisins and it was still very good. Next time I will definitely use a timer.

  • I make my steel cut oats on the stove with a can of full coconut milk. I add in one banana while it is cooking and also chia seeds and flax meal and cinnamon. It turns out so creamy with lots of flavor.

  • LOL ya it’s hard with different slow cookers… totally depends on your own /-:

    I knew it would be a bit bland to some! It’s not AS sweet but easily customizable!

  • yayyy! thanks for this video Dani! I bought some steel cut oats a while ago but had no idea how to cook them or make them yummy. I will probably be topping off my bowl of oats with some honey and fresh berries!

  • Nutritionally, steel cut oats and rolled oats are the same…the only difference is in the way they are cut. Saying steel cut oats are better for you is like saying a sandwich cut down the middle is better for you then a sandwich cut diagonally. Looks good though, the crock pot is a great way to do oatmeal, never thought to try that! Going to now:)

  • I soak steel cut oats in Thermos food jar with boiling water before going to sleep every night, in the morning it’s perfectly cooked

  • Interesting recipe! I buy my oat groats in 50 lb. sacks and use a flaker to make oatmeal. How are steel-cut oats better than this?

  • Making this, again….SO GOOD. I especially like it when I add a little ginger and nutmeg, and top it with some greek yogurt and cranberries. Num Nums. Thanks for the great recipe!

  • I love this! So excited to try the stove top method so I can take my oats to work all warm and creamy. Thanks so much for the tips!
