I used to work nights and come home just a little bit hungry. I thought it was a perfect snack to mix a flavored yogurt with instant oats. Who knew the Swiss really ate this? This recipe is a bit more work, but oh-so-much better! Agave nectar is not traditional, but it does have a lower glycemic index for some people.
