Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats

1 1/4 cups steel-cut oats (not to be replaced with quick or rolled oats)
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 apple, diced with skin
3 tablespoons almond butter
4 1/4 cups unsweetened soy milk (can use almond)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup chopped nuts (almonds, pecans, or walnuts)
1/2 cup raisins

Directions

  1. Add all the ingredients except for 1/4 cup of the nuts and 1/4 cup of the raisins to a glass bowl that will fit inside your slow cooker. Give it a good stir, and place the bowl in the center.
  2. Carefully fill the slow cooker with water, to about 1 inch below the rim of the glass bowl. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  3. In the morning, remove the lid and stir up the oatmeal. Scoop out about a 1-cup serving, and top with a sprinkling of nuts and raisins.
  4. Store uneaten oatmeal in the fridge.
