Toppings for slow cooker pumpkin pie oatmeal
While I season the oats with some cinnamon and nutmeg, you might want to add a bit of something more to the mix before you eat. I have played with this recipe a lot to come up with some awesome additions that really pair well with pumpkin and oatmeal. For one, I love a bit of texture in my oats, and secondly, there is nothing better than an all in one meal!
- Golden raisins, diced apricots, or dried pineapple chunks add texture and sweetness.
- Slices of fresh banana are mellow enough to compliment the pumpkin while adding more fiber.
- Chopped pecans or walnuts are an excellent addition of protein and texture.
- Mix in chia seeds, hemp hearts, or flaxseed before serving for extra healthy fats.
- A spoon of almond butter can be mixed into the oatmeal for protein, healthy fats, and flavor.
What Should I Serve with Oatmeal?
For some, oatmeal is all you need to stay full for hours. I, however, am one who needs a bit more in my morning meal to get going and be satisfied for a few hours. So, I pair my oatmeal with a piece of fresh fruit and some protein. If you are like me, then you know a bit of protein alongside this breakfast goes a long way toward keeping you full longer.
- Hard-boiled, scrambled, or fried eggs
- A handful of nuts or nut butter mixed into the oatmeal
- Fresh or dried fruit mixed into the oatmeal, or on the side
- A cup of Greek yogurt with a bit of honey drizzled over the top
- Bacon, turkey bacon, turkey sausage, or lean ham slices
