4 Oatmeal Recipes Too Good Not To Try

 Anyone who knows me or has shared a meal with me know that breakfast has a special place in my heart. I think I've mentioned before that, if I had things my way, breakfast would be available for all 3 meals of the day. I don't know if it's the ingredients that go into breakfast dishes or the endless possibilities when it comes to breakfast...but if you say breakfast I'll say, "where and what time?" I love even more when I'm able to try out recipes I love at home so that every time I'm in the mood for my new favorite dish I can stay in my PJ's as opposed to having to get up and go to a restaurant! Which brings me to my latest obsession- homemade oatmeal.

Now the recipe I'm sharing is not earth shattering, but I was still really excited to have found a few recipes for oatmeal that I could make from the comfort of my own kitchen. I'm not as much of a fan of microwavable oatmeal because it has so much sugar that it almost takes the health benefits out of having it. Instead, I've been experimenting with different combinations of ingredients to make my own oatmeal. The one I decided to share today is blueberry and banana oatmeal. This recipe is incredibly easy to make at home on the weekends doing things around the house (I'm the queen of multitasking) or in the morning before work or school when you're trying to get out the door and have a decent breakfast. The aspect of this recipe that I enjoy the most was actually knowing what ingredients are in it, which is not always the case with microwavable versions. Like y'all, those are real blueberries in there! This oatmeal was so delicious and incredibly filling; I didn't even think about needed a snack later in the morning. Just writing about it has me wanting to make a bowl for breakfast tomorrow! I digress y'all have got to try this out for yourselves. I've included this recipe and links to 3 others I like below! Enjoy!

1 cup of milk (I use almond milk)
2/3 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup blueberries
1 banana
1 TBSP of cinnamon
Drizzle of honey

1. Combine milk, rolled, oats, and cinnamon into a pot.
2. Cook ingredients on the stove on medium heat for 5-7 minutes.
3. After 5-7 minutes add blueberries and stir throughout.
4. Continue stirring occasionally as mixture begins to thicken and the blueberries pop.
5. Add half of the banana to the mixture for the final 5 minutes.
6. Remove from the stove when the oatmeal has reached your desired consistency.
7. Add the other half of the banana,
drizzle with honey, and enjoy!
