Servings 2 large or 4 small serves


  • 1 cup quick cook oats

  • Place all ingredients (except topping options) in 1.5L slow cooker

  • 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

    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

    The best breakfast ever. I can’t wait to have it each morning. So delicious, full of flavour and it reheats well with the addition of extra milk. You really must try this, so easy to do, only 5 mins of your time and 70 minutes later or you make it the night before and breakfast is ready to serve with your favourite toppings ???????

    Thank you, Paulene, for this fantastic, yummy porridge recipe. It’s sooo tasty, quick and easy to make. Don’t have to stand over a pot and stir a great bonus I will definitely be making this again.
