"Good Morning, Pumpkin!" Power Oatmeal! (Crockpot Recipe!)

Wouldn’t we all love to wake up every morning, and have a healthy, warm, delicious breakfast waiting for us already? Well— you can! With this recipe, all you have to do is put some ingredients in a crockpot before heading to bed, and you’ll have a tasty treat waiting for you first thing in the morning! Who says that eating clean has to be complicated? It really is THAT SIMPLE! Ready for the recipe guys?

Recipe:
“Good Morning, Pumpkin!” Power Oatmeal (Serves 2— Crockpot Recipe!)

1/2 Cup oats
1/2 Cup pumpkin (canned is fine, but make sure the only ingredient is pumpkin!)
1 Cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 Cup water
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 Teaspoon ginger
1/4 Teaspoon ground clove
4 Packets of Truvia/Stevia
Sprinkling of salt
2 Scoops vanilla or pumpkin whey protein (I used About Time/SDC Nutrition’s Pumpkin Spice Whey Protein Powder)
Optional as garnish: walnuts, pecans, raisins, etc.

Place all of the ingredients (except the protein powder) in a slow cooker. Mix the ingredients thoroughly, then cook on low for 8 hours. Just before serving, stir in the whey protein, and garnish with chopped nuts or dried fruit if desired (I used some walnuts and craisins! Yum!). Please note, I like my oatmeal super thick (you know— the kind that clings to the spoon!). If you prefer a runnier oatmeal, then add more liquid to your crockpot.

Enjoy guys! I absolutely ADORE this recipe, because it’s a great treat to wake up to— and even better because it’s one that requires almost no morning prep work! Awesome!
