Fall Flavors Week continues and today I'm sharing my new favorite breakfast, Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal! I found this recipe on the Taste of Home site and it caught my eye because it was done in a slow cooker.
I know, I know, everyone's on the Instantpot train, but I'm still rocking it old school. First thing you do is mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. I know it's tempting to just mix it in the slow cooker, but it will stick. Cook it on low 5 to 6 hours.
It's great straight, but I added some fun toppings too. Some glazed pecans, some Craisins and a few pepitas and I finished it off with a little drizzle of maple syrup.
I packed the remaining portions into jars, added the toppings and had breakfast ready to go for the week. I think this could easily be converted to an overnight oats version by using regular oats instead of steel cut and I'd probably use almond milk instead of regular.
