Overnight Slow Cooker Pecan Pie Oatmeal is a delicious and healthy breakfast recipe that can easily be made in advance!
I can’t think of a better way to welcome fall than with pecan pie overnight oats. This recipe will help you get into the holiday spirit while also keeping you full for hours!
Currently, as I’m writing this, it’s almost the middle of October and it’s still in the 90s in Georgia. However, there is a cooldown in the forecast – FINALLY!
Back to the oats, these oats are simple to make (throw everything in the slow cooker!) and the taste is on point for the name – pecan pie.
Pull out your slow cooker or Instant Pot and try these ASAP!
If using an Instant Pot, add all ingredients to your Instant Pot and cook on manual, high pressure for 10 minutes. Allow natural release.
This will seem like a LOT of oats when you wake up to stir them. Don’t panic. If you used two cups of oats (like the recipe calls for) this recipe makes 8 servings. The easiest thing to do is to weigh the entire batch on a food scale and divide the weight by 8 to get the proper serving. Ours came to around 225 grams per serving but this can vary depending on the ingredients used and the liquid.

Can extra portions be kept in the fridge for the next day (assuming you’re not having 8 people come to breakfast)?

Haha yes, it can! We usually eat it on for 3-4 days. It’s delicious cold or warmed up. 🙂
