yoats

by forloveofcarrots on September 24, 2011

Yeah I just made that word up, feel free to use it freely and you will probably want to use it often after you try what I made for breakfast this morning. I called it yoats because it is a mixture of yogurt and oats.

I will warn you that you will probably think this is weird and you will probably call me weird for trying these things. You may not want to try it, but I am telling you, just do it and if you don’t like it that is fine and I give you permission to call me weird.

Yoats:

1/2 oatmeal

water

1/2 plain greek yogurt

1 tbs raspberry preserve (you can use any sweetner that your please)

1 tbs peanut butter

fruit of choice

1.) Make oatmeal according to directions

2.) add greek yogurt and jam or whatever sweetener you have chosen

3.) Mix together and add peanut butter

4.) Add fruit and enjoy!!

Serve with a hot cup of Godiva Caramel Pecan coffee

Happy Saturday! Lots of errands and things to do today!

Hi Kaitlin, Yum! What a healthy and comforting breakfast option. I love that you balance the naughtiness in it (read peanut butter) and nutritious and healthy part (frozen berries). Oatmeal for breakfast is my all times favorite option. However I would add some nut milk instead the yogurt. I am trying to eliminate diary products as they gave me some digestive problems. Do you think that greek yogurt is better in this matter than a normal plain yogurt? I might try to use it and see if works for me. Thanks for posting this recipe!

I’m certain nut milk would be great! I use almond milk in my oats all the time! I only eat Greek yogurt because it has less sugar and the added protein then regular yogurt. If you are eliminating dairy maybe try the coconut yogurt? I can’t tell you how it tastes because I can’t do coconut but I know people love it.
