Put A Parfait Twist On Your Oatmeal Breakfast
To get the most bang for your buck, turn your next bowl of oatmeal into a multilayered masterpiece, inspired by none other than a fellow breakfast favorite, the parfait.
While parfait usually consists of granola layered with creamy custard or yogurt, oatmeal makes a surprisingly decadent substitute with its sturdy, starchy structure.
Unlike yogurt or custard, oatmeal can soak up flavors. By layering oatmeal with ingredients rather than sprinkling them on top, you can allow them to really infuse with the oats.
Some delicious options include apple butter, fresh fruit, dried coconut flakes, cacao nibs, jam, peanut butter, or even yogurt to give it the true creamy, parfait treatment.
