Slow Cooker Pumpkin Coffee Cake Oatmeal – 31 Days of Fall Flavors Recipe #9

This whole steel-cut oats in a slow cooker thing may just be the best discovery since sliced bread.  Why did I not hear about this sooner??  Sticking with the fall flavors theme, I found a recipe from Healthy Slow Cooking using some of the pumpkin puree I whipped up after a trip to the pumpkin patch.  If you haven’t checked out this blog, do it!!!  She has over 40 slow cooker oatmeal recipes.  If there is a shortage of steel-cut oats in the Twin Cities this winter, I have nothing to do with it!
