You don’t have to worry about making a hot breakfast when you put this porridge in the slow cooker before bed. You’ll awaken to a cinnamon-laced, slightly sweet pot of comfort food. It’s easy to store in the refrigerator and reheat and keeps for several days. Add a dollop of Greek yogurt or nut butter to boost the protein, if desired.
