Weight Watchers Friendly Slow Cooker Pumpkin Oatmeal

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 35 – Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal)

With all the flavors of pumpkin pie, this slow cooker pumpkin pie oatmeal with streusel topping is an easy, healthy, warm and delicious way to start your day.

I can’t seem to get enough pumpkin and apple this time of year. They’re two of my favorite fall foods.

So, today I’ve got another pumpkin recipe: slow cooker pumpkin pie oatmeal with streusel topping. It’s adapted from this recipe for slow cooker pumpkin coffeecake oatmeal.

Skinny on Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I really enjoyed the Crock Pot Apple Oatmeal, which uses old-fashioned oats, when I made it. This time, I decided to try steel cut oats.

Lots of slow cooker oatmeal recipes call for significant amounts of sugar. I prefer to leave the sugar out and use it on top of my oatmeal where I can really taste it.

The sweet and spicy crunchy streusel topping is what makes this slow cooker pumpkin pie oatmeal special. You’ll end up with extra streusel which you can save for future bowls of oats :-)

The recipe makes 2 cups of slow cooker pumpkin pie oatmeal, or 4 (1/2 cup) servings, which is all the oatmeal I want in a single sitting.

If you like a bigger breakfast you can have a full cup with 2 tablespoons of streusel for 6 Points Plus.

Enjoy!
