So this happened. An Oatmeal Latte! I seriously can’t believe that I never thought to do this before. I love coffee and I love oatmeal. This recipe should’ve been a no-brainer. As it is, I only heard about it from a high school friend of mine who was back in New York on a short visit after living in Colorado for a long time. There’s a coffee shop in Breckenridge that has this on the menu. Gah! Yet another reason to visit Colorado! Anyway, this is delicious, you guys. Like D-E-licious…TRY THIS!!!
Oatmeal Latte Recipe
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 2 1/2 cups milk
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 (or 4!) shots of espresso
- granola for topping
Place the oats and 1 1/2 cups of milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the salt and cinnamon. Stir to combine. In the meantime, froth or steam the remaining 1 cup of milk. Add about 3/4 cup of the steamed, frothed milk to the oats. Cook, stirring often, until the oats are super creamy and milky. Remove from heat. Stir in the remaining milk. Stir in the brown sugar and vanilla extract.
***The measurements are slightly different, but honestly the measurements are only a suggestion. It all depends on what consistency and sweetness you prefer. I have replaced the whole milk with soy milk a couple of the times that I made this. I’ve left out the cinnamon once or twice. Whatever. Point is— Play with your food, y’all!!! This one is almost impossible to mess up.
