Pumpkin Raisin Oatmeal

Well it’s officially Fall and I’ve already begun craving Pumpkin.  I’ve been trying to get myself better about eating breakfast and Ive noticed I often catch myself reminiscing about childhood breakfasts of oatmeal, so I decided to do a pumpkin oatmeal. This recipe is Vegan also.

Combine the following ingredients  in your crock pot and mix well.

1 12 oz cane Pure Pumpkin

3 cups old fashioned oats

6 tablespoons chia seeds

4 cups soy milk

3 cups water

1 cup or more raisins

1 to 2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup brown sugar

I cooked  it on low for about an hour the night before and then put it in my refrigerator over night. I heated it up for about an hour on high stirring occasionally.

It would probably cook nicely in about 3 or 4 hours on low  or about an hour or 2 on High

I did not find the the “pumpkininess” to be overbearing at all. If were to make this in say November vs September I would probably add nutmeg and include dried cranberries.  But, for a random morning in September it was perfect.  Also keep in mind that you can substitute out the soy milk for water.

James Liked this one He’s never really eaten oatmeal before
