- 1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 1 cup water
- 1¼ cup milk
- ¼ tsp salt
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup blueberries
- heavy cream
- fresh blueberries
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.
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!)
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.
- 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.
