Pumpkin Oatmeal Recipe

One of our favorite family recipes in the fall is this slow cooker pumpkin oatmeal recipe. Nothing tastes better to me on a cool morning than a warm breakfast. With a young family that can be tricky. What I love is that you can prepare the night before so that it’s ready for you first thing when you get up. This recipe also works well in an InstantPot.
