Slow Cooker Apple Cranberry Einkorn PorridgeWednesday, November 9, 2016
Fast forward to present day. Not a single one of my kids likes oatmeal, or any hot breakfast cereal or porridge, for that matter. What!? I admit that I prefer pots of steel cut oats or a hearty grain porridge over those instant packets these days, but I'd even buy those if the kids would eat them.
Meh, sort of. They love the smell, but still aren't fond of the idea of hot cereal. I love the chewiness that using whole wheat berries lends (and really, it's nothing like oatmeal) a bowl of porridge. Plus, being able to throw ingredients into a crockpot the night before and wake up to breakfast being ready is everything—especially during the holidays and when you have overnight guests.
Speaking of loving a crockpot meal, be sure to check out all of the different recipes linked at the bottom of this post for more slow cooker recipe ideas!
