Slow Cooker Maple Syrup and Raisin Porridge

Slow Cooker Maple and Raisin Porridge

This Slow Cooker Porridge is AMAZING. I used 1 cup of whole oats to 4 cups of semi skimmed milk (you could use full fat milk for an even creamier version) and left it on low overnight .....the result was divine. The smell on waking was worth it alone but what  I really enjoyed was the crusty bits that had formed around the edge of the slow cooker pot.

I added some maple syrup and raisins to the porridge and a dash more milk to everyone's bowls (the amount served 4 easily), and we gobbled it up in no time. So comforting on a cold winters day.

Healthy Porridge

Porridge is one of the healthiest, most nutritious ways to start the day. Oats are high in fibre and keep your tummy feeling nice and full until lunchtime. No tummy groans in this house! If you add fruit to your porridge it provides even more health benefits in the form of vitamins and minerals. Chopped banana would work well, with a sprinkling of walnuts.

Roasted Rhubarb

This roasted rhubarb would go really well with the slow cooker porridge. Just spoon some on top of the porridge and stir in! An easy but very healthy breakfast idea!
