One thing my husband and I had in common before we even met, was our love of Corner Bakery’s Swiss Oatmeal. After we met, we would eat swiss oatmeal for breakfast before church on a weekly basis. While my husband was on a business trip, I discovered this recipe that tastes exactly like swiss oatmeal from Corner Bakery, and perhaps even better since I can customize it with my favorite fruits! What I love about this recipe is that it is so healthy, loaded with fruit, and is low in fat and calories. I fix this for breakfast almost every morning, and my husband and I haven’t been back to Corner Bakery in while now.
Feel free to change the types and amounts of fruits you put into the oatmeal to make it your own favorite! My husband actually will only eat his with bananas. He hates apples and dried fruit. So like I said, feel free to make this your “own” recipe. Enjoy!
Here are the ingredients you need!
First, add the oatmeal.
Next, add the yogurt, milk, honey.
Now add the chopped banana.
Finally, add the dried fruit and chopped apple.
1/4 cup oatmeal (I use Quaker Old Fashion Oats)
1/4 cup nonfat yogurt or Greek yogurt
1/4 cup nonfat/skim milk
squirt of honey
1/2 of a chopped banana
1/4-1/2 of a chopped apple, depending on its size (I use either Pink Lady, Honey Crisp, or Gala apples)
1 tbsp of dried fruit (I use dried cranberries and dried blueberries)
handful of fresh blueberries (optional)
sliced almonds (optional)
Mix the oatmeal, yogurt, milk and honey and let sit for a few minutes to let the oatmeal soak in. Meanwhile, chop the banana and apple, and gather your dried fruit. Mix the fruit in with the wet ingredients and dish up!
I serve this immediately, but for a thicker consistency, cool in refrigerator a few hours before. Can keep in refrigerator for up to two days.
