Have you ever had refrigerator oatmeal? Growing up, I only remember eating flavored oatmeal packets. Or if my mom made regular oatmeal, I covered it completely with brown sugar. Once I tasted the chilled oats from Corner Bakery in Irvine, I knew I had been missing out!
I wanted to make sure my kids knew there was an extra delicious way to eat oatmeal! After a recent media tasting (where they had me in to sample some of their menus) they generously shared the recipe for their Corner Bakery Refrigerator Swiss Oatmeal Recipe!
Have you tried refrigerator oatmeal?
I’m mildly obsessed with their refrigerator oatmeal. It’s a bit different from an overnight oats recipe in that it only needs to sit for about half an hour. Plus it usually has fruit and nuts mixed in which is a great way to sweeten it up without adding tons of sugar. This cold oatmeal recipe is one that your whole family is going to love! I love that part of my job means that I get invited to local restaurants to try new items they are adding to their menu.
The Chilled Berry Almond Swiss Oatmeal at Corner Bakery blew my mind and probably wasn’t something that I wouldn’t have normally ordered from Corner Bakery (I probably would have had one of their delicious pastries or eggs and bacon like my son)! The apple hand pie was crazy good, of course I had to have a bite.
How to Make Cold Oatmeal
While I can’t recreate their delicious raisin bread crisps, I love recreating the chilled oatmeal at home. This recipe makes a pretty big batch, which is another bonus. We usually have enough for breakfast for a few days.
6 oz. Old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup Dried cranberries
1/4 cup Currants or raisins
1 TBSP sugar (or to taste based on sweetness)
2 cups Low Fat vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 cups Skim milk
Granny Smith apple, medium sized, chopped
Banana, medium sized, chopped
1/4 cup fresh strawberries chopped
1/4 cup fresh blueberries
1/8 cup sliced toasted almonds
Mix oats, cranberries, currants and sugar in a large bowl.
Add yogurt and skim milk, mix well and let sit 15 minutes.
Dice the apple and banana, add to oats mixture and let sit another 15-30 minutes.
Top with fresh strawberries, blueberries and toasted almonds.
This Swiss oatmeal is perfect for summer! It means your kids will have a healthy-ish breakfast plus it’s not warm! It’s so easy and tasty! Or you can head to your nearest Corner Bakery and have them make it for you!
