No more “I don’t have time to make porridge”. Wake up to creamy delicious slow cooker porridge made overnight with rolled oats, whole milk and honey or maple syrup.

Weave it into your life as part of an eatnaturally plan to help you get slimmer and healthier!
Serves: 2-3 • Prep: 5 mins • Cook: 6.5 hours • Easy 
There are a few caveats with this recipe because slow cookers vary in their heat settings and sizes. So the larger the cooker the more solid it will make your porridge because of the surface area. This is best made in a smaller cooker with some depth. One with a timer is important because any longer than 6.5 hours and you risk it drying out. Try it once and see how you need to tweak it for your own particular slow cooker. 
  • 100g of rolled oats
  • 1.2L of whole organic milk
  • 2-3 tbsps of acacia or mild clear honey, or maple syrup, to taste
Lightly butter the inside of your slow cooker to help stop the porridge sticking.

Add the oats and milk and give it a good stir. Don’t add the honey yet as it can make the porridge burn more easily.

Put the lid on and set the temperature to low.

This will take no more than 6.5 hours so if your slow cooker has a timer use it, in fact a bit less is wise. Now you have time to check out the rest of your eatnaturally plan!

Wake up and eat the porridge! After adding the honey or maple syrup that is :-)

I like my porridge naked (the porridge, not me) but you can add any of these: sliced banana, chopped apricots, swirl of cream (this I do love), chopped nuts, ground brazil nuts and flaxseeed, any fruit you like.
