Slow Cooker Pumpkin Oatmeal

This is my most recent slow cooker obsession. I can get tired of my same ol’ breakfast choices and although this is more of a Fall flavored recipe, when I made it last week there were snow flurries in the air. So until Spring hits full-on in a few weeks I’m going to keep making my new slow cooker favorite. The best part of making oats in the slow cooker is you wake up to a delicious hot breakfast ready to eat.  Yum!
