Pumpkin Crockpot Overnight Oatmeal

I'm trying to work more breakfast options into my routine. Up until recently, I had been in a bagel with cream cheese rut. Ummm, yeah, that's high on points and low on nutrition. In my search, I found a recipe for oatmeal that cooks while I'm sleeping.

1 c. steel cut oats
4 c. water
1/2 c. pumpkin puree
1/4 c. brown sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Dump it all into the crockpot, stir together, turn on low. Let cook overnight. Wake up to yummy goodness. This is 4 points per cup. I had a 1/2 cup (2 points) and an apple for breakfast. Very, very filling.

The kids loved it with a tiny bit of half-and-half mixed in to cool it down.
