Blueberry Oatmeal

Oatmeal makes for a fast, healthy breakfast on weekdays when I don’t have much time to cook. While my older son doesn’t much like oats, I’ve concocted several oatmeal recipes that he enjoys… or at least doesn’t complain about. The rest of the family likes the sweetness of the fruits and the warmth that settles in your belly after eating this hearty porridge. So here’s one of my favorite quick breakfasts, which I often serve with chicken breakfast sausage. As always, I use local and organic ingredients when I can.

Ingredients:

2 cups rolled oats
4 cups filtered water
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2-1 apple, diced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
dash of salt
1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)

  1. Add all ingredients except for optional chopped nuts into a small pot and cook over medium heat until done (5-10 minutes).
  2. Add nuts, if desired.
  3. Serve warm with a pat of butter/margarine and a bit of cane syrup drizzled on top.

Serves 3-4
