In a large bowl that fits into the liner of your slow cooker, combine all of the ingredients and mix well.
Set the bowl inside of the slow cooker, and fill the liner with water to halfway up the side of the bowl.
Cover and bake the oatmeal on low overnight, 6-8 hours.
Finish seasoning to taste with additional sugar and pumpkin spice mix, if desired.
