Servings 2 large or 4 small serves


  • 1 cup quick cook oats

  • 1 cup hot water
  • pinch salt

  • Honey, banana, berries or other fruit of choice, dollop of coconut yoghurt or some nuts. The options are endless


  • Place all ingredients (except topping options) in 1.5L slow cooker
  • Cook on HIGH for approx. 70 minutes
  • As cookers can vary in heat keep an eye on yours to ensure it stays moist enough and doesn’t dry out or overcook. Remember too if you use a larger cooker it will be emptier and therefor cook faster too

  1. This is so easy and fuss free, we easily do it 4 or 5 times a week for breakfast/brunch/lazy Sunday night 🙂

    We have also done a double batch in the Westinghouse 3.5L searing sc which only takes slightly longer.

    We don’t use the dates though
