  • 3 Cup Filtered water
  • 2 Cup Milk of choice
  • 1 Cup Rolled oats
  • 1/3 Cup Dried dates pitted and chopped
  • ¼ tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 1 ½ tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Ground cloves
  • 1 pinch Ground turmeric

To serve:

  • Ground cinnamon
  • Raw honey
  • Fresh fruit of choice
  • Flaxseeds or hemp seeds


  • Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker and stir together.
  • Cook on low for 8 – 10 hours.
  • The porridge will be nice and creamy and thick like a soup.
  • Spoon out into serving bowls when ready. Serve with a light dusting of ground cinnamon, a drizzle of raw honey, fresh fruit of choice and a sprinkle of flaxseeds.


Each slow cooker is a little different from others, so you may have to adjust the amount of water needed. If porridge is a little too thick prior to serving simply add a little more liquid and stir through.
