Slow Cooker Pecan Pie Oatmeal – Your favorite pie in breakfast form! Fluffy maple cinnamon oatmeal topped with chopped pecans. Not only is it tasty, it’s vegan!
I always enjoy a good bowl of oatmeal. It is so simple to make, yet it can be so flavorful. I was amazed to find out that one of my friends had never actually had oatmeal before, I had assumed that it was something everyone has tried at least once! I tried to jazz this oatmeal up with pecans and brown sugar and it turned out amazing! The oatmeal itself was so flavorful from sitting in the slow cooker for hours, soaking up the maple and cinnamon and also, very creamy as I decided to use milk instead of a water and milk combo for the liquids in the oatmeal. Fair warning, this is incredibly filling!
Until recently, I had not actually tried a pecan pie before! Pecans are my favorite nut but most my family is not fans so we never have had one at the holidays. I finally picked up one of the tiny personal ones from Walmart last week which might not have been the world’s best pecan pie but I got the gist from it and it was so good! I am officially a pecan pie fan! I now know what I have been missing for the past nineteen years!
