Lately I've been trying lots of recipes that can be prepared ahead since I have a feeling with a baby I won't have much time for cooking whenever I feel like it. One of my favorite things at Corner Bakery is the Swiss Oatmeal but sadly it's too far for me to drive just to satisfy the craving. Thankfully google has all the answers and I was able to adapt a recipe that works perfectly and I can make it the night before.
Corner Bakery Style Swiss Oatmeal
Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
Plain Lowfat Yogurt or I like the Vanilla flavor from Trader Joes
Toasted Silvered Almonds
Banana (do not add this until just before serving)
Dried or fresh Blueberries
I'm not good at measuring so start with 1 cup oats, 1/2 cup yogurt and thin with milk until it's a consistency you like. If you make this ahead, you'll probably need to add a little milk just before serving. You'll only need about 2 Tablespoons of sugar unless you like it really sweet. Add the almonds and fruit, stir and enjoy. You can add any fruits you like. I have it with chopped apples and raisins sometimes- so yummy.
