It works great with plain or vanilla yogurt! I liked it just fine but would not be adverse to adding some fresh berries or a spoonful of jam.

Great to hear! I think if you do plain or vanilla that adding some berries or fruit would definitely makeup for not having any fruit yogurt.

I will try this recipe but I don't use instant oatmeal, I will try it with original oatmeal. This article needs to be spellchecked. The word "ass", I'm pretty sure should be "ask".

I’ve reached out to the editor to let her know. Thanks for pointing that out! (Let me know how the rolled oats works out and definitely use Greek Light <br />and Fit if you can, it makes a world of difference.)
