Blueberry Oatmeal


  • 1 tablespoon salted butter or coconut oil
  • 1 cup Old Fashioned rolled oats (do not use instant oats or steel cut oats)
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup milk of choice (2% or oat milk)
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen*
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For topping: maple syrup, fresh blueberries, sliced almonds, milk


  1. Melt the butter or coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the oats and toast for about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often, until fragrant.
  2. Turn the heat to low and carefully pour in the water, milk, blueberries, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, salt, and vanilla extract, stirring. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 to 7 minutes until thickened and the oats are tender, smashing the blueberries with the back of a large spoon as you stir. (Try to smash the majority of the berries to give the oatmeal its purple color.)
  3. Remove from the heat. Top with desired toppings and serve.
