Oatmeal Cinnamon Porridge & Sultanas Is Delicious

This Oatmeal Cinnamon Porridge & Sultanas makes a great start to your day.  I like the old fashioned oats as they have a fuller flavour and are healthier.  You can eat this as a raw meal or make it into regular porridge.  As they take longer to cook; I often soak them overnight but you do not have to.

If you want gluten-free oats, here is a very good one Harvest Gluten Free Organic Rolled Old Fashioned Oats which is good for cooked oatmeal porridge. For making a crumble, it is better to have one like this: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Quick Cooking Rolled Oats

Oatmeal Cinnamon Porridge Recipe


1/3 cup old fashioned oats (rolled oats can be used)
1 cup water
2 Tbsp sultanas
Pinch of salt
1/2 – 1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp honey
1 Tbsp coconut oil (or shredded coconut if eating uncooked)

Directions Uncooked:

  1. Put oatmeal, water and sultanas in a cereal bowl.
  2. Let them sit over night.
  3. In the morning add a little salt, shredded coconut and cinnamon.
  4. Enjoy your simple already made breakfast. 

Directions Uncooked:

  1. Put the oatmeal, water and sultanas in a saucepan.
  2. Let them sit overnight; if you can.
  3. In the morning add a little salt to the pot.
  4. Bring to a boil then turn heat down and simmer, stirring frequently till thick, adding more water if necessary.
  5. Done this way, it is as fast as quick-cooking oats and the bonus is the sultanas are plumb and juicy.
  6. Pour into a cereal bowl.
  7. On top put coconut oil and honey, then sprinkle cinnamon.
  8. Eat your warm oatmeal porridge.

If you did not get around to soaking overnight: Simply put oatmeal, water and sultanas in a saucepan, bring to a boil, turn heat down and simmer, stirring frequently till thick, adding more water if necessary. Serve with extras on top.

  • Diana,
    I believe that rolled oats are already cooked when you buy them. Cooked and rolled flat. So if you are on an all raw diet, like I am right now, This recipe would not be considered raw.
