A hard to find recipe online so thought I’d create one. This recipe isn’t very sweet, but refer to the Recipe Notes for some tips on making it sweeter or a stronger Oreo taste.
This recipe can easily be altered based on the number of people, I did a ratio of 3 Oreos per person. In my recipe notes below, I suggest doing 4 Oreos per person if you want a sweeter/stronger Oreo taste in your oatmeal.
When crushing the Oreos I used a plastic bag and a heavy knife. Made the process much easier than a food processor, which would make of cookie crumbs instead of the crushed pieces that we wanted for this. The Vanilla I have was purchased from Amazon, which was cheap for a non-imitation vanilla in this quantity.
A less sweet, and healthier version of Cookies and Cream ice cream that you can have for breakfast or as a dessert.
Heat the milk in a medium saucepan.
While that’s heating up, separate the cream filling from the Oreos, and put wafers in a small plastic bag. Crush the wafers until the largest pieces are about 1/4" in size.
Once milk reaches a boil, reduce to a simmer and add in the oats, vanilla, sugar and Oreo cream filling.
Cook for 5 minutes or until oats are of the consistency you want. Oatmeal will still look liquidy.
Let oatmeal cool and thicken off the burner for about 3 minutes.
Mix in crushed Oreo wafers, and serve. Garnish with half an Oreo.
- For a one person serving divide the recipe in half.
- For a sweeter taste, add an extra two Oreos and 1/2 tablespoon of sugar instead of 1 teaspoon.
