Steel cut oats (the "quick" kind) is what I have on hand. Since today was grocery day, I did not have a lot of milk on hand. So I combined the oats with yogurt and the other ingredients and refrigerated overnight.
While I'm a fan of breakfast parfaits, often made with yogurt, I did not want a cold dish on this unusually cold morning. So I heated the oat-yogurt mix for just 30 seconds in the microwave, added the toppings and enjoyed. This was delicious!
The recipe was inspired by Better Homes and Gardens.
