Oatmeal is a great way to start the day and this is a recipe I have developed over the years. It's delicious, light, and great with milk to help cool it down. You can replace the milk with soy milk, if desired. You can add the blueberries earlier in the cooking process if you like them hotter and plumper.

I love blueberry oatmeal! We prefer this recipe with old fashioned oats (not quick). Make in the microwave one serving at a time and cook for 3 minutes. Cooking the blueberries with the oatmeal instead of adding them later allows some of the blueberries to pop and distributes the flavor throughout. Allow everyone to add their own brown sugar at the end so it's just the right amount of sweetness. Fast and easy for weekday mornings. Read More

I thought it was good but had a little less flavor than I was expecting considering all of the additions. The carb count was a little high for my liking especially with the brown sugar mixed in and yet it wasn't very sweet. I also doubled the amount of blueberries and could have put more in. Read More

Made this oatmeal scaled for 7 servings this morning. I used almond-coconut milk instead of regular milk. My 4 hungry eaters loved this oatmeal. The verdict is still out with two because they are still sleeping. The consistency is great and it is not too sweet for little ones. The vanilla adds an extra something. Thank you for this recipe it is going into my stash of keepers per request of my children. Read More

I scaled down the recipe to 1 serving and used old fashioned oatmeal. I agree with another reviewer who said for all the added ingredients it yielded little extra taste or flavor. Perhaps a bit too much cinnamon and not enough brown sugar. Read More

This is perfect! Sweet but not too sweet and not too cinnamon-y. I didn't have flax or milk and I used old fashioned oats which still took 5-7 minutes to cook. I didn't think 1/4c would be enough so I put in a heaping 1/3c of blueberries and I used frozen so I added them when I added the vanilla etc.. This is a simple great recipe that my toddler and I both devoured. Read More
