  • Yields: 2 large or 4 small serves


1 cup quick cook oats

2 cups milk (or your preferred non dairy milk substitute)

1 cup hot water

pinch salt

3-4 large, fresh medjool dates, pit removed and diced

½ tsp cinnamon

Toppings options

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


1Place all ingredients (except topping options) in 1.5L slow cooker

2Cook on HIGH for approx. 70 minutes

3As 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

4Serve into plates and drizzle with honey and fruit/nuts/yoghurt/topping of your choice

So creamy, so delicious, best porridge ever.

No. This recipe cooks in 70mins. If you search the word porridge on our website though you’ll see some overnight ones 🙂

Can you set it to cook overnight?

I’ve made this with and without the dates and the result is still the same. Yummy.

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
