  • Mix oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Stir in pumpkin. Stir in water and half-and-half gradually. Stir in raisins and vanilla extract.

  • Ladle oat mixture into the slow cooker. Cook on Low until oats are soft and creamy, 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 hours.

  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons brown sugar and 5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon walnuts over oatmeal.

Cook's Note:

Refrigerate any leftover oatmeal. Put the desired amount into a microwave-safe bowl, cover, and reheat on 100 power (high), adding a bit of milk as necessary to reach the desired consistency.

This has a great flavor and I am enjoying it reheated days later. However I'm so glad I didn't put it in the crock pot overnight. I made this during the day because I was skeptical of the long cooking time. I checked it at 4 1/2 hours and it was already sticking very badly to the pot and just about to burn. Next time I would either decrease the oats to 1 3/4 cup or increase the water by at least 1/2 cup and only cook for 4 hours. It is very tasty though! Read More

This is a great recipe for any left over pumpkin you have from other baking (which I always do). I added 1/2 tsp of ginger and cloves and reduced the nutmeg by 1/2 tsp but that's a personal preference. I've used spray oil in the slow cooker, but I find that buttering by hand is a bit better, although it still sticks. Worth it to wake up to breakfast already cooked! Read More
