This classic blueberry oatmeal is my FAVORITE kind of oatmeal.
I’m a bit obsessed with blueberries – they’re so simple, nutritious, refreshing and perfectly delicious in a very understated way… and I’m also a bit obsessed with oatmeal – it’s so creamy and nourishing… and it leaves me feeling so cosy & content when I eat it for breakfast (especially on a chilly day).
And so, in my opinion, there is no other breakfast porridge that can compare with blueberry oatmeal.
The key to making it taste so perfectly delicious (while still being totally nutritious) is to never forget my “essential oatmeal ingredients” that I use for turning any oatmeal porridge into a dreamy, creamy breakfast.
My essential oatmeal ingredients:
-ground vanilla powder/ pure vanilla extract
-a dash of cinnamon
-a little bit of cold-pressed coconut oil
-nut butter (macadamia nut butter is my absolute favorite)
-100% pure maple syrup (or another natural sweetener)
Yes, these simple ingredients make this classic blueberry oatmeal absolutely amazing – but it wouldn’t be the same without the blueberries (obviously)… check out how much of each ingredient to use below…
This recipe is naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free, plant-based AND it contains healthy fats as well as good protein.
I hope you love it as much as I do! xo
Here’s how much of everything I like to use…
-1 cup blueberries
-1/2 cup rolled oats
-1 + 1/2 cups water
-1 teaspoon cold-pressed coconut oil
-1 teaspoon nut butter (macadamia, cashew or almond will do)
-1 teaspoon ground vanilla powder/ pure vanilla extract
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-1 or 2 teaspoons 100% pure maple syrup (or another natural sweetener to taste)
Suggested toppings (aka my favorites):
-another teaspoon nut butter
-a few chopped walnut pieces
-bring the dry oats and water to a boil on the stove and then simmer on a low temperature for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until fully cooked
-add the blueberries to the cooking oats after about 10 minutes and leave to simmer
-once cooked, remove the oatmeal from the stove and add the coconut oil, nut butter, vanilla, cinnamon and pure maple syrup to the pot
-stir all ingredients into the oats until well blended
-serve in a bowl and top with another teaspoon of nut butter or chopped walnut pieces (optional)
-eat & enjoy every spoonful!
