Okay, there is no creme in this creme brulee 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, I think more people would enjoy it if it didn't look like a big grayish-brown blob. Did I succeed?


Old fashioned oats
Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Unsweetened berries 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Nuts 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) , chopped
Dried berries 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon (Other(Full absorption))
Brown sugar 2 Tablespoon
Maple syrup 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (Optional)



1. In a saucepan with boiling water, add in oats and 1 pinch of salt, and bring to a boil.

2. Reduce the heat and allow to cook on simmer for about 2-3 minutes.

3. Put the lid on and remove the pan off the heat, set aside for 5 minutes.

4. In 2 ramekins put frozen berries in bottom, in single layer.

5. Put layer of oatmeal in both the ramekins.

6. Sprinkle dried cranberries and sprinkle some chopped pistachio.

7. Put on next layer of oatmeal.

8. Sprinkle with brown sugar on top, and shake the ramekins to spread sugar evenly.


9. Place the ramekins under preheated broiler for about 1 minute or until the sugar melts and caramelize.

10. Remove the ramekins and allow the caramelized sugar to set for 5 minutes.


11. Serve cold or at room temperature.
