You just soak the oats in milk and yogurt overnight, and add toppings in the morning. I love oatmeal, but I've never tried a raw, cold recipe before. I'll try it and report back. ;)

Yay! I used a Weston Price recipe, soaking the oatmeal using apple cider vinegar (ick). It certainly is more filling than just cooking it in the morning. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts.

Well French toast is on the menu for tomorrow, so the oats are postponed. Priorities. ;)

I've made it with milk, yogurt, and strawberries and/or blueberries. It's pretty good and certainly handy to have ready to go. You can always give it a zap in the microwave to take the chill of of it.

I made them last night and ate them this morning. I used 1/2C oats, 1/2 C milk, and half of a little container of Chobani vanilla yogurt. The result was very thick and soft. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely make it again. I actually liked it better than cooked oatmeal.

Anybody know whether the yogurt is included in order to provide some necessary enzyme, or if itís just there for texture?

I think probably both - I've made it with just milk, and it's definitely better with yogurt. The yogurt also has the advantage of probiotic cultures, so as long as the yogurt you're using is not a sugar bomb, it provides health benefits and also enhances the texture and flavor.

Enzymes, because the Weston A. Price recipe calls for whey (from yogurt) or lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. (don't use the apple cinder vinegar...ask me how I know).  ::)

I'll try it.  oats or porridge as we call it are as part of the Irish diet as spuds/potatoes.  I hate washing the pot after cooking though.
