    This is so easy, delicious & healthy! We tried this with raspberries & didn't like it as much. I found this on a vegetarian website & made a few minor adjustments. Enjoy! Your cholesterol levels will thank you, lol.

      I'm a bit of a sweet tooth so this was just okay for me, a bit too bland until I stirred through some vanilla yoghurt to sweeten and add more flavour. I usually cook my oats in milk & I think I'll be sticking to that method as the water doesn't really give it the creamy texture I'm used to.

      I used fresh blueberries and they didn't "pop" and turn the oatmeal purple. The second time I tried adding them early, when the water was boiling and they still remained whole. I crushed them with a potato/avocado masher which worked great, and also added brown sugar near the end to melt in, since the fresh blueberries were a little tart.

      I reduced this to make 2 servings for DH and me this morning. What is not to like? Each serving was topped off with a touch of brown sugar. A hearty, healthy breakfast treat. Made for *Aussie Swap*
