Cool Summertime Oatmeal
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling
Tried making this with steel cut oats because that was the only oatmeal I had. It was nasty. Don't know that I would be willing to try it again with rolled oats.
I made the individual serving adding dried cherries; almond milk instead of milk and yogurt; and sunflower seeds. Delicious! Thank you, June, for sharing this recipe.
I have seen similar recipes for years, but they all used ingredients I didn't normally keep on hand. I thought the recipe came out great as written. The last time I made it I used greek yogurt and I found I needed to add a lot more milk. I think I'll try it with greek yogurt again and next time use less yogurt. My son thought cold oatmeal was weird so he microwaved it and liked it that way. Thanks for my new summer staple!
My family loves this for breakfast and I love that you can assemble it the night before. I do leave out the milk and nuts. And I switch out the fruit every now and then. It's also great with bananas! The oats soften a little bit but to me they are like the texture of what they are like in a no bake cookie. They do not bother us that way
Maybe I'm missing something, but I followed the recipe and the next day was so eager to try the oatmeal. The oats tasted chewy and raw, which is what I feared since they weren't cooked. I had hoped soaking up the milk and yogurt would have softened them, but it was inedible. Very disappointed, because it seemed like such a great idea!
