When we found this recipe, our mouths started watering and it brought us back to our teen years when our Mom used to make a similar rich, creamy and delicious oatmeal dish several times a week. It was one of our favorite breakfasts before a school day or before a weekend soccer game since not only was it delicious, but it helped give us energy to play. We love this version that uses DANNON® OIKOS® Greek nonfat yogurt, which adds extra protein—and we bet you will too!
