Maple Cinnamon Blueberry Oatmeal

Some delicious seasonings which make a perfect tasting oatmeal: cinnamon, maple extract, and agave. You could definitely sub maple syrup for the agave and use vanilla instead of maple extract. Get creative with this! Oatmeal is like a blank slate and often needs some help from outside sources to bring it to life. Another favorite of mine is banana peanut butter.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c oatmeal
  • 1 c soy milk
  • 1/4-1/2 c blueberries (I used frozen)
  • 1-3 tsp agave
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp maple extract
  • 1 tbls walnuts
  1. Bring oats and milk to a boil. Simmer uncovered
  2. As the oats get soft and plump, add the remaining ingredients (*note, if you add the blueberries here, you will get purple/blue oatmeal – see below; you can alternatively heat up the frozen blueberries separately and spread atop the cooked oatmeal)
  3. Add walnuts and cool off with a splash of soy milk
