Oh yum. I threw this together a few nights ago, and we woke up to the most deliciously fall-smelling morning. It's like eating a steaming bowl of pumpkin pie and baked apples for breakfast! This is delicious, nutritious, and has just the right amount of sweetness.
I used my smaller 2.5 quart Crock-Pot and this recipe filled it up! It's been great re-heated throughout the week too. Look for an organic pie-filling that is sweetened with actual sugar instead of corn-syrup, or use your own pumpkin puree with added spices and sweetener.
This is best eaten on your porch, wearing a comfy sweater and slippers. Admire the steam rising from your bowl, and enjoy!!
Overnight Crock-pot Pumpkin-Pie Oatmeal
2 apples, peeled and cubed
1 can of pumpkin pie filling
dash of salt
4c old fashioned oatmeal (NOT Quick-Oats)
Optional but delicious toppings:
splash of milk
Peel and chop your apples. Combine all ingredients, and mix thoroughly, incorporating all bits of pumpkin into mixture. Cook on Low setting in Crock-pot overnight, or for 6-8 hours.
(I'm sure you could make this on your stove too!)
Nomnom. Enjoy your fall!!
Lots of love,
