It’s that time of year for pumpkin spice everything, so why not breakfast? Catherine McCord, founder of Weelicious and co-founder of One Potato, created a simple and crowd-pleasing pumpkin spice oatmeal recipe for a crock pot. The healthy meal is easy to make, by throwing all the ingredients into a slow cooker. Set the timer, enjoy your coffee and before you know it, breakfast is served.
Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal in the Slow Cooker (serves 4 to 6)
2 cups water
2 ½ cups milk of choice
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
1 cup steal oats
Maple syrup or honey (optional)
Place all the ingredients in a crock pot and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 4-8 hours (note that the cooking time can vary depending on your crock pot. Crock pots without non-stick surfaces tend to get hotter, so you’ll want to stick closer to a 5-hour cooking time).
