Blueberry Oatmeal

Recently, I went to Maine. Yes, there was snow still on the ground. Yes, I saw family. Yes, I ate way too much chocolate. So, I decided I needed to eat a little healthier and exercise just a little more. I decided to try this oatmeal recipe. I liked it. I didn't add any sugar to the oatmeal for sweetness. I figured I would rather have the sugar in my ice tea. However, my children added sugar to their oatmeal. They liked it and would eat it again but with sugar. With a serving of fruit, this recipe is a great way to start the day. I love the purple color.
Blueberry Oatmeal
2 cup water
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup frozen wild blueberries
1 apple, chopped
1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds

  1. In a medium saucepan, mix the water, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  2. Bring the water to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Stir in the oatmeal and allow to bring to a simmer.
  4. Stir in the blueberries and allow to cook for 1 minute.
  5. Turn off the heat and cover.
  6. Allow the oatmeal to sit for 15 minutes. The mixture should be thick and creamy.
