I think I’ve made it pretty obvious by now that I am a breakfast fanatic. You know those people who NEVER eat breakfast? Well they are seriously missing out on the most awesome meal of the day!
Granted, I’m guilty of missing out on a lot of breakfasts, which is why this blueberry lemon oatmeal recipe is so great. This recipe makes four fairly large servings so if you like oatmeal the way I do, you’ll have four delightful breakfasts because there’s seriously nothing better than waking up and eating a nice breakfast, with coffee, and being cuddled up in a blanket. I of course do this while watching my favorite morning shows (Rick & Morty) or listening to some Howard Stern!
I honestly love oatmeal in any form, but this recipe adds a little something more to your traditional oatmeal. I can’t even explain my love for blueberries! I have been hoarding and freezing them so I can enjoy fresh local berries all year long. Yum.
You could always double the recipe if you have a large family to feed. This recipe refrigerates well, too! I just popped a serving in the microwave each morning and it was ready to eat.
