My old roommate used to cook this all the time as a quick and easy yogurt topping. I also think it's nice with a little bit of cream instead. Please use butter if you can stand it, there's no comparison!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter or margarine in a small frying pan over medium/medium low heat.
  2. Add the oatmeal and stir so that it is evenly coated.
  3. Cook until the oatmeal starts turning golden brown and a little crunchy, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add the brown sugar, again stirring well to coat the oatmeal.
  5. Cook 1 to 2 minutes more, until the brown sugar is completely melted and dispersed, and the oatmeal is very golden brown.
  6. Serve on top of yogurt, or with a small amount of milk or cream.

Made for PAC Fall 09. Loved this over yogurt...toasty nutty sweet flavour.

I cut way back on the butter so it took quite a while longer to brown the oatmeal but it still tasted nutty and absolutely wonderful on top of Greek yogurt. Great recipe, Kitty Z.
