I spotted this amazing treat on Camille Styles yesterday and knew I had to have it for breakfast this morning. If oatmeal and crème brûlée had a love-child, this would be it.
Brûlée Oatmeal with Almonds and Berries

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • raspberries and chopped almonds (or whatever fruit and nuts you like!)

  1. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil; stir in oatmeal and salt. Cook over low heat partially covered, simmering and stirring often, until almost all liquid has been absorbed and oats are al dente, about 45 minutes. Stir in vanilla and cinnamon.
  2. Transfer oatmeal to 4 ovenproof ramekins or mason jars. Preheat broiler.
  3. Stir together sugars, and sprinkle evenly over tops of oatmeal. Place ramekins on baking sheet, and broil until sugar melts and forms a crust, about 2 minutes. Top with berries and nuts.
 If that can't get you going in the morning, I don't know what will. Enjoy, dears!
