BLUEBERRY OATMEAL- CLEAN EATING


"Purplicious!" That is what my daughter said as she sat down to a bowl of this oatmeal. As the fresh blueberries sit in the hot oatmeal some will burst and turn this oatmeal into a beautiful shade of purple.

Oatmeal is a breakfast favorite in my house, I am always making it but never eating it...until today. For the first time I actually enjoyed a bowl of oatmeal with my kids. The warm blueberries explode with flavor in your mouth, followed by the sweet cinnamon and honey.

Blueberry Oatmeal- CLEAN EATING
Adapted from Martha Rose Shulman
Serves 2

1 1/3 cups water
1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons mild honey
2/3 cup rolled oats or oatmeal
1/3 cup blueberries
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped or grated orange zest
1/2 cup coconut milk or organic milk

Bring the water to a boil in a medium-size saucepan. Add the salt, cinnamon, honey and oatmeal. Reduce the heat, and simmer uncovered for five minutes or until most of the water has been absorbed. Add the blueberries, orange zest and milk (or alternate beverage). Bring to a simmer, and simmer five more minutes or until the oatmeal is thick and creamy and the blueberries have begun to pop. Cover and let stand for five minutes, then serve.

To make in a microwave: Place the oatmeal, water, salt, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large Pyrex bowl — at least 1 1/2 quarts. Cover the bowl with a plate. Microwave at 100 percent power for three minutes. Let sit one minute, then carefully remove the plate. Stir in the blueberries, orange zest and milk. Cover with the plate, and microwave for two minutes more. Let sit for one minute so the oatmeal will absorb the milk.

Advance preparation: If you want to save a few minutes in the morning, you could combine all the ingredients except the milk, blueberries and orange zest the night before. The oats will absorb all of the liquid. Add the milk, bring to a simmer and proceed with the recipe.

We have had so much rain this summer...

I have never seen the falls going like this...

You do not know what a pleasure it was to find a comment on my blog. As for my recipe for Mini raspberry and white chocolate cake you're right, I have not specified the weight of the bag! The rush to publish! 8 grams is the dose of baking powder, while the dose in teaspoons is equal to 1.6 ^_^
Soon
