A healthy, delicious and fun breakfast recipe doesn’t need to be time consuming or complicated! This recipe for Purple Blueberry Oatmeal is the perfect example. In fact, it’s so great that my twin three year old sons eat it for breakfast almost every single day! But don’t worry – this recipe is perfect for kids and adults alike.
This is how you make it:
1 – In a microwave safe bowl, add the oatmeal or oat bran, cinnamon, salt and water.
2 – Microwave on high for about one minute and forty seconds, but watch the last few moments to make sure it doesn’t overflow! Alternatively, you can cook your oats via stove top according to the package directions.
3 – Afterwards, add the ground flaxseed, frozen wild blueberries, and splash of nondairy milk and stir well to combine.
4 – Add sweetener, if you so desire! My boys prefer good ol’ maple syrup.
