Imagine coming down to breakfast to the delicious smells of apple and cinnamon wafting round the kitchen. This overnight apple and cinnamon porridge recipe means you put everything in the slow cooker before you go to bed, and it’s done when you wake up. Perfect school fuel – with slow-release energy oats, fruit and a little bit of spice. Nice!
To avoid overcooking your porridge, it's worth first trying this during the day when you can supervise it. I would strongly recommend using the double boiler method for this to save on washing up (porridge is hard to get off your slow cooker). Put all your ingredients into a bowl that sits snugly in your slow cooker. Pour water between the bowl and the slow cooker. Cook as per the above instructions.
You can use less or more depending on how creamy you like this or you can use half milk and half water.
