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

Adding a few raisins, or sultanas that are unsweetened and unsulfured adds some more sweetness to this mix. Raisins are a healthy, tasty food when eaten in moderation. They are a good source of nutrients and add a tasty sweetness to desserts and snacks. According to Medical New Today, they have many health benefits.

Instructions

Uncooked

Cooked

  • Put the oatmeal, water, and sultanas in a saucepan.

  1. I use it. Cinnamon honey in my tea,coffee on my toast in the morning. I bake with it real good cinnamon buns. You just have to make sure it is unpasteurized honey and true cinnamon( big difference )

  2. 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.

    It sounds delicious! If I don’t have my facts straight, let me know and I’ll try this recipe!!
