I don’t know about y’all, but I am welcoming fall with open arms. We have been enjoying the cooler weather, warm soups, lots of family time and of course, many pumpkin recipes. We went to a pumpkin patch and my friend Amber shot this family photo for us – I LOVE it! ALL the girls are looking!
I love steel-cut oatmeal. I usually make a batch (on the stove) at the beginning of the week to store in the fridge breakfast. I decided to try making them in the crockpot. I adapted the recipe from Weight Watchers and I REALLY love it. It smells amazing while cooking, and I have been enjoying it for breakfast every morning. You can add your own “fixings”…whatever suits your fancy! I usually add a few chocolate chips, flax seed, raisins and bananas. It’s like eating dessert for breakfast.
3 cups water
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup steel cut oats
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup honey (optional…you can add sweetener of choice when serving)
Put everything in the crockpot and stir together really well.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Stir together well before serving. ENJOY!
