Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup water
  • cup milk
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries

Topping

  • heavy cream
  • fresh blueberries

Instructions

  • Boil: Add all ingredients to a saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture starts to boil.
  • Burst Berries: When the edges start to bubble (after 3-5 minutes) reduce heat to low. Using the back of a spoon burst the blueberries by pressing against the side of the pot.
  • Simmer: Place lid on top of pot and continue cooking an additional 3-5 minutes until oats are thickened and cooked to desired consistency.
  • Topping: Serve the oatmeal in bowls and top with a splash of cream and fresh blueberries.

Notes

Old Fashioned Oats: Also called Rolled Oats, have a short cooking time and require 2 cups of liquid per every cup of oats. Keep this ratio if doubling this recipe. (There is an additional 1/4 cup of liquid called for in this recipe to ensure creamy oats!)
Substitutions: 
  • Steel Cut Oats: 3 cups of liquid per 1 cup of oats. Take longer to cook, plan on 15-20 minutes to cook. 
  • Quick Oats: cook quickly, these still require 2 cups of liquid per 1 cup of oats.
  • Milk: feel free to use any dairy free milk of your choosing. 
  • Maple Syrup: can be substituted for any sweetener of your choice. 
Milk: use milk of preference
Maple Syrup: can substitute with any sweetener of choice. 
Berries: can substitute frozen berries for fresh, treat the same in the recipe, cook until thawed and softened before bursting in the oatmeal.
