A friend from work gave me this idea of cold oatmeal. I played with it my way for a bit and came up with a great recipe. It is so good I picked up two pounds of oatmeal at the store today. Give it a try and be creative with it.
1/2 cup oatmeal Old fashioned, (not quick oats)
1/4 cup dry cranberries or raisins
2 Tbsp Splenda (or any other natural sugar)
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup fresh berries
* optional honey or syrup to top it off
Mix all ingredients except fresh berries and optional topping in a cereal bowl. Then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in fridge over night. The next morning remove from fridge and stir in fresh fruit. Top with optional topping and enjoy.
It really is a great morning treat on the go. You can even make large batches of the recipe and have it good to go all week.
Change it up with nuts, seeds and any fresh fruit you have on hand.
