I love eating oatmeal in the morning. My favorite are steel cut oats -- I love the chewiness. So toothsome! But as the weather heats up, I start wishing for cooling alternative to both my steel-cut oats and cold cereal. Enter Swiss Oatmeal.
Don't ask me what makes it Swiss. Wikipedia could probably tell you. I only know what makes it yummy. ... Um ... the ingredients do. (Make it yummy, that is.) Ingredients like vanilla yogurt, wholesome rolled oats, almond meal, and red ripe strawberries.
This couldn't be more simple, really. The night before you want breakfast (so... tonight, for example) throw this together and in the morning all you will have to do is slice some berries and you'll be in business.
What are you going to do with all the free time I've just helped you create?
Putting on mascara and using the bathroom by myself are high on my list, personally.
Swiss Oatmeal with Berries & Granola
1 1/2 c. old fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. almond meal
1 1/2 c. vanilla yogurt (greek yogurt would be great, but regular works just as well. Nonfat is perfect, if that's what you like.)
pinch of salt
dash of cinnamon (optional)
berries -- strawberries are particularly good
The night before you want to have this, mix together oats, almond meal, milk, yogurt and salt. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, dish into bowls and top with cinnamon (if desired), granola and berries.
