I probably buy blueberries more than any other fruit. My kids love them and eat them like they’re candy, which, hey, is cool by me! They also love oatmeal, which is the number-one requested breakfast from my two-year old. It’s very rare that she requests anything else. So, since I’m participating in the Quaker® “Bring Your Best Bowl” challenge, I decided to combine two of their favorite foods and make this Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal!

I used Quaker® Quick 1 Minute Oats for this recipe and was able to pick them up on a Walmart run, along with all of the other ingredients I needed.

Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal – a hearty and delicious bowl of oats that tastes just like a blueberry muffin! It’s sprinkled with a walnut and brown sugar topping, then loaded with juicy fresh blueberries!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Quaker® Instant Oats
  • 3/4 cup milk or water
  • 1 Tablespoon blueberry jelly
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped walnuts or almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, nuts, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Combine the oats and milk or water in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir, then cook over high heat for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed and oats are cooked. Stir in the blueberry jelly.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over the top of the oatmeal then return the bowl to the microwave and cook over high heat for 30-45 more seconds. The brown sugar will caramelize into the top of the oatmeal.
