Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1 ingredients...
Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt)
Oats (old fashioned, not probably could do steel cut too)

I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a measuring cup.
For the most part, it is equal parts Oats, Milk & Yogurt. 
However, I tend to use a little more oats than Yogurt...
and a little less milk...
Dump those three ingredients into your bowl and then stir it up...
Next add some honey
This is probably a taste preference thing, but this is how much I add (probably about 2 Tablespoons).
Then you stir it up until it is a soupy yucky looking combination.
Pop it in the refrigerator and let it sit over night.
The next morning, you finish off the Swiss Oatmeal with Phase II of ingredients.
This is what I like to use, but this is also where you can really personalize Swiss Oatmeal to your taste buds.
I use a granny smith apple because I like the tartness.  I use pecans because I like a little crunch.  I also do a banana and dried cranberries.
You could obviously do a different nut if you wanted, berries, raisins, or even some crushed pineapple could be good.
I'm showing you this photo for two purposes.
(1) You can see it thickens over night
(2) You can see that this is how much oatmeal mixture I started out with (watch, it's like Tuna Salad.  It grows and grows and grows as you add your ingredients).
I chop all the fruits & nuts and dump them into the oatmeal.  Then give it a good stir...
and voila!  Your Swiss Oatmeal is done!
See how full the bowl is?

The yogurt cup I use is 6 oz, and out of this measurement "cup", I get two large servings.
It's so good!

Thank you SOOO much for this post! I have been looking for a recipe for this oatmeal as it's so darn good! I have to say I've vegan-ized it (by replacing the yogurt with Trader Joe's vanilla coconut yogurt as well as using almond or coconut milk), but the end result is DELICIOUS!! Thank you soooooo much!! :)

Help the Horn

I honestly cannot stand to watch the coverage from the Horn of Africa. The famine and starvation there is just unimaginable. I've been watching for a while. ABC was the first major news channel covering the crisis. Now everyone has caught up. Anderson Cooper is there right now, along with Sanjay Gupta. Their coverage will shake you to your core.

The alert that Anderson sent out last night was that based on the current influx of donations and supplies, the World Food Program only has enough for the next month.

$1 can feed 4 children. Who of us couldn't spare a dollar, or ten, or even more.

I would suggest going to the sight rather than the international site. If you try to donate at the regular site, the that would cause a charge from the UK to show up on your card and then you might be hearing from your bank's fraud department. That's what happened to me last night That's the word on the street!

Spain 2019 {Day 6/Part 2 & Day 7 ~ Granada & Madrid}

"The royal palace forms but a part of a fortress, the walls of which, studded with towers, stretch irregularly round the whole crest of a hill, a spur of the Sierra Nevada or Snowy Mountains, and overlook the city; externally it is a rude congregation of towers and battlements, with no regularity of plan nor grace of architecture, and giving little promise of the grace and beauty that prevails within." - Washington Iriving, The Alhambra
And this is so true, as you walk to the Palaces Nazaries, you are very unprepared for the grace and beauty that prevails within.  When you enter the Palace, you are immediately struck by the intricate designs on the walls and ceilings.
Water features and courtyards are a big part of the Palace.
Courtyard of the Myrtles...

Ship Room... Grand Hall of the Ambassadors.  That wooden ceiling is made form 8,017 inlaid pieces like a giant puzzle... This is the largest room in the palace and functioned as the throne room for the Sultan.  In 1492, two …
