Fall/Winter is a fun time of the year for baking and cooking. There are so many different, good recipes using some of my favorite ingredients including apples, cinnamon, pumpkin, and cranberries. Today we have a pumpkin spice recipe for you. Pumpkin has been a huge trend the last year or two and I can see why – because it has a great flavor.
Today I want to share our pumpkin spice Clean Eating oatmeal recipe. These oats are like pumpkin pie in breakfast form. What can be better than that? Not only is this recipe Clean Eating, but you can have it cook overnight in the slow cooker. You will wake up to a nice smelling home with food waiting for you to eat with little to no preparation.
I am personally not a morning person at all and so anything I can do make the mornings a little smoother is much appreciated. In fact, I am thinking this could be a great breakfast to make for Christmas breakfast. I might just have to do that this year! Do you have any traditions for Christmas morning breakfast? What does your family do? Do you go out to eat or make the same thing every year? What time do you have breakfast?
I remember having to wait till 8 am before we ate breakfast on Christmas morning and we couldn’t open gifts until after that! We would wake up some time in the middle of the night but we had to just hang out in one of our bedrooms for hours waiting until we could come out. Now, that’s torture! I would love to hear how you do things Christmas morning. I would love ideas so I can start some traditions of my own.
This oatmeal recipe is easy to throw together before you go to bed and you will love to wake up to the smell of pumpkin and spices.
Grease the inside of a crockpot with the softened butter.
Add remaining ingredients to the crockpot and whisk together until well combined.
Cover with the lid and cook on low for 6 hours.
Serve with toppings such as chopped pecans, cooked spiced apples, chia seeds, flax seeds, butter, etc.
