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.

  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!!

  3. Ginny, rolled oats even old fashioned are processed with high heat which makes them not raw. But they are not cooked. I love this way of soaking them so we do not have to cook them. It is very yummy.
