Many fall flavors come together in this creamy breakfast dish. The slow cooker does the work of simmering nutrition-dense steel-cut oats with pumpkin puree, maple syrup and warm spices. It's topped with sliced pears and dried cranberries for added sweetness and roasted sliced almonds for crunch.



Special equipment:
an 8-quart slow cooker
  1. Add the milk, oats, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, pumpkin puree and 4 cups water to the insert of an 8-quart slow cooker and stir until well combined. Cook on low until the oats are tender and the porridge is ultra creamy, 7 to 8 hours.
  2. Divide the porridge among 4 bowls. Top each serving with pear slices, cranberries and almonds, then drizzle with a little milk and maple syrup.
