This spiced-up version of one of our favorite breakfast dishes is sure to be a hit with your family this fall season. It is a healthy oatmeal recipe that helps you start your autumn day right. We’ve taken 100% clean ingredients and piled them together in the Slow Cooker to let the flavors soak in just right. It’s so good, you won’t even realize you’re eating healthy. After all, both Oats and Pumpkin are Superfoods! Don’t let the fall flavors fool you, though; this thick, custard-like oatmeal is enjoyable year around!
Our pumpkin custard oatmeal recipe is tasty and convenient. It can be assembled the night before and the slow cooker can cook all night, so you wake up to the fragrant aroma of pumpkin and spices.

This way you can focus on the day’s upcoming events and not worry about having to create a healthy breakfast when you are busy.
