Pumpkin Oatmeal Crockpot Recipe
– 1 15 oz can of canned pumpkin OR 3 cups of fresh pumpkin (peeled, seeded, and cut into small cubes)
– 5 cups water
– 1 1/2 cups steel-cut oats
– 1/4 cup honey
– 1 tbsp brown sugar
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp nutmeg
– 1/2 tsp salt
OPTIONAL: Garnish with a few dried cranberries, for a fabulous taste and dislpay
Combine everything in a crock pot, cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Stir well before serving.
NOTE: If you use the canned pumpkin instead of the fresh, your oatmeal texture will be creamier and more like a chunky puree.
