Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup and Latte and 31 Days of Slow Cooking Recipes

I'm Hungry

Today I’m going to link up with one of the recipes from my blog.  Did you know you can prepare oatmeal in the slow cooker?  A hot and delicious breakfast will be ready for you in the morning.

It’s pumpkin season.  Once fall hits, it seems as though there is pumpkin spiced everything.  So today’s slow cooking recipe is a pumpkin pie oatmeal cooked in the slow cooker.  Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal sounds delicious!

While eating the oatmeal, I can use the remaining pumpkin puree to make a pumpkin spiced lattes.

I love drinking Pumpkin Spiced Lattes from Starbucks but at over $4 for a cup, it’s more economical to make your own.

This is an easy recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.
