Blueberry Oatmeal

Sharing is caring!

This blueberry oatmeal is a great way to start the day! I have developed this recipe over the years. It’s delicious, light, and great with milk to help cool it down. You can replace the milk with soy milk if desired. You can add the blueberries earlier in the cooking process if you like them hotter and plumper.


  • 1 ⅓ cups water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ⅔ cup quick oats
  • 1 tablespoon crushed flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk (Optional)
  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries, or more to taste


Combine water and salt together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Add oats; cook and stir until halfway tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir flax, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract into oatmeal; continue cooking until oats are tender, water is boiled off, and desired consistency is reached, 2 to 3 minutes more. Stir milk and blueberries into oatmeal.
