Pumpkin Oatmeal

Good morning! Today I was feeling like some oatmeal for breakfast. I have left over pumpkin and decided to make some pumpkin oatmeal. It was delicious! I could eat this every morning. It was so simple to make. I bought a mini crock pot for under $12.00 and decided to dump my ingredients into it, plug it in and let it cook until I could no longer stand it. I originally bought the crock to heat left over soup for my lunches in. Truth be told- I also bought it to melt chocolate so we could do some dipping. Naughty! I used it to make body butter the other day and it worked perfectly. I think I might love this crock!! I will post the recipe for the oatmeal today and a photo tomorrow. I kind of ate all of the oatmeal already. No time for pictures when you are starving! Lol!!

Pumpkin Oatmeal

  • 1/3 C. rolled oats
  • 1  C. water
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 C. pumpkin
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger
  • 1/8th tsp. nutmeg
  • pecans
  • Craisins

  • Put all ingredients, except the pecans and Craisins, in mini crock pot (or in a saucepan on stove top on low heat) and cook until thickened. Mine took about an hour and a half to reach desired consistency. Once finished add some pecans, a sprinkle of brown sugar and some Craisins. Yum!!
