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.
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.
Divide the porridge among 4 bowls. Top each serving with pear slices, cranberries and almonds, then drizzle with a little milk and maple syrup.
