Pear & Pomegranate Winter Porridge

Porridge is hands down my favourite breakfast in the Winter.

I found this simple hack on Pinterest, and well I haven’t looked back.

Cook the porridge in a slow cooker overnight!

Well this is utter genius.

What is better than waking up, and breakfast is there all ready and waiting?
No rooting for pans, standing over a hob, or waiting for the microwave to ping when it’s done.
Talk about nailing the cold winter mornings.

This recipe was a fluke, I basically had some leftovers to use up, and chucked it all in the bowl.
The result was utter perfection
