(No-Cook) Swiss Oatmeal


Warmer weather makes me want to eat cooler food - as in chilled like salads & smoothies. If you follow me on Instagram you probably have noticed that I was on a smoothie bowl kick for a while. Then I had the Swiss oatmeal at Gregory’s Coffee (by way of recommendation from my team at work) & I knew I would have to work this into my morning routine at home.

Swiss oatmeal is served chilled, which makes it more appealing (to me) to eat during the spring & summer than a hot bowl of oatmeal (or anything for the matter).  Oh & you don’t have to cook it- that’s right a no-cook oatmeal. You only need to know how to cut up some fruit & stir & then get your beauty rest while it does it's thing in the fridge overnight.

It’s super simple to make & it’s another recipe you can use for that yogurt in your fridge too! This recipe makes enough for about 4 breakfasts. I stored mine in an airtight jar & portioned some out each morning during the week.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup yogurt (I used plain Greek Yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup milk + extra for serving
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt (about 1/4 teaspoon)
  • 1 banana, sliced & then cut in half*
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped almonds
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
(*Note: You can use other fruit here.  You'll need about a cup of chopped fruit. Apples are really good in this as well.)

Make it!
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, add the oats, yogurt, milk, cinnamon, salt, banana, raisins & almond butter.
  2. Stir well until all combined. The goal is to soak all of the oats.
  3. Then either cover with plastic wrap or transfer mixture to an airtight container like a glass jar.
  4. Let the mixture chill overnight.
  5. Portion 1/4 of the mixture out into a bowl. Add a couple splashes of milk (depending how thick or thin you prefer - it'll be pretty thick to begin with) & top with chopped almonds & maple syrup.
