Nutritionists have long advocated a low-fat, protein-rich breakfast, but a morning diet of Greek yogurt and steel-cut oats can get old fast. Thankfully, the chefs at Norma’s, tucked inside The Parker Meridian, have crafted a fresh take on the latter. Made with McCann’s Irish Oatmeal, the oatmeal is covered with a layer of low-fat milk and brown sugar that’s bruleed just before making its way to your table. The result is a Crème Brulée-like texture without the calories of one. The finishing touch is a topping of sauteed apples and pears, like dessert for breakfast, only healthier.
