Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal in the Slow Cooker

I love pumpkin pie. And while the calories can sometimes be necessary to make mass gains, this is a lot healthier for you. I strongly believe that your pre-training breakfast should have a healthy amount of protein, so pair this with a side of bacon or sausage, or some eggs.

The beauty of this oatmeal is that you throw everything into your slow cooker before bed, and when you wake up, boom: pumpkin pie oatmeal. Top it with some dried cranberries, pecans, and brown sugar for a delicious fall breakfast.
