Yummmm, one of our favorites on busy school mornings... something substantial and healthy that seems to fill up their grumbley tummies until lunch time!! I'm excited to try your crockpot version to make our mornings a little less hurried. And a suggestion to add a little extra pizazz to your porridge... add in 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, 2 tsp natural peanut butter and 1 tsp vanilla. Delish!!
