Oatmeal is a wholesome, satisfying first meal of the day, but you might not feel so inspired by it when the weather outside is boiling. As the summer heats up in the coming months, you’ll want a breakfast that’s simple to put together and cooling to the mouth. (Sweetness never hurts either.)
For these cold oats, use your favorite dulce de leche. I went to a few different grocery stores around my neighborhood looking for the kind I crave—dulce de leche with a thick, hot fudge-like consistency that comes in a glass jar. I finally found one fitting that description by Gaucho Ranch. Alternatively, if you’re feeling ambitious and you’ve got a little extra time on your hands, you can make your own.
