I first had chilled Swiss oatmeal at the Corner Bakery Cafe in Chicago. During my four day trip, I had this breakfast three times and made sure to take note of the ingredients so I could recreate this recipe at home. (Note: The oatmeal needs to sit overnight, so plan ahead!)

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 8 hours
Ready in: 8 hours 5 min
Yields: 1 Bowl


  • 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/8 cup Currants
  • 1/8 cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 Banana, Diced
  • 1/2 Green Apple, Diced
  • 1/8 cup Nonfat Plain Yogurt, (Greek Yogurt works great!)
  • Water
  • To Taste Brown Sugar, (Optional)


Any fruit can be added/removed/substituted from this recipe. Be creative! You can also replace the water with skim, soy, or almond milk or similar.


  1. The night before, place the oats in a bowl and add just enough water to cover the oats. Refrigerate overnight.
  2. The next morning, drain water if necessary.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients: currants, cranberries, banana, apple, yogurt, brown sugar. Stir.

    Delicious! And much better than paying $5 for a bowl at Corner Bakery.

    Your delicious cereal is also called Swiss muesli. It's one of my favorites and we enjoy it frequently in the summer especially. You did a great job recreating it!

    Great idea! I make my own muesli from organic rolled oats(Trader Joe's) my own roasted pecans, almonds and walnuts, dried cranberries and other dried berries too, and add it to my wholegrain cereal with some plain yogurt. Love it!

    I will add some apple and banana and skip the cereal! Up! [
