My typical breakfast includes eggs, especially when I am following a low carb diet. But there are times when boredom sets in and I just have to have something else. On those days, I often make oatmeal and this is my go-to recipe: easy microwave oatmeal with blueberries.
Notice the melted butter on top? That is the game-changer for me. Butter enriches the flavor. Yum!
Easy Oatmeal With Blueberries
1/3 cup oatmeal (regular, NOT quick)
2/3 cup water
pinch coarse sea salt
dash of ground cinnamon
chopped walnuts** (optional)
1 tsp butter
Pour dry oatmeal in microwavable bowl.
Add water and mix.
Blend in walnuts (optional)
Sprinkle with pinch of salt.
Sprinkle with 2 dashes of cinnamon.
Microwave for 2 minutes on high.
Place blueberries on top.
Microwave another 30 seconds.
Add a pat of butter to the top.
*Blueberries: use fresh blueberries or thawed frozen blueberries.
**Walnuts: for those who love nuts, walnuts taste great in this recipe.
