Okay, there is no creme in this crème brûlée recipe. But here is the thing, I love oatmeal. I really do. But my biggest complaint about oatmeal–as a foodie–is that it’s quite unappealing. Very unappealing!
You might have noticed, I really get into the visuals of food here at Cooking Stoned. So making oatmeal sexy is one of my goals. It’s so tasty and healthy, and I think more people would enjoy it if it didn’t look like a big, grayish-brown blob.
Did I succeed?
1. Bring 2 cups water to a boil and add in 1 cup old-fashioned oats and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Reduce to a low simmer and cook for five minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit covered for two minutes.
2. Divide 1 cup berries (I used frozen as fresh are not in season yet here), 1/4 cup nuts, and 1/4 cup dried berries along with the oatmeal between two ramekins.
3. Top with the 2 tablespoons brown sugar. If you want to add in 1/4 cup maple syrup, do it before adding the brown sugar.
4. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and in the broiler on high for about 5 minutes, making sure it doesn’t burn.
Serve warm and enjoy!
