Warming up: Blueberry-Almond Oatmeal

IMG_4840

It has been so, so cold. Like… unfair cold. Its cold times like these that make me wish I could teleport from New York City back to my home in Florida. But since that technology is not yet available to me, I will have to settle for eating warm things. Enter: Blueberry-Almond Oatmeal. Everyone always tops their some brown sugar, cinnamon, and maybe some nuts. Although I love a standard oatmeal like that, I have found a new favorite in this recipe. I started experimenting with different flavors and ended up loving this simple and delicious style of oatmeal. Hopefully, it’ll warm up one of your frigid winter mornings, too! (Recipe serves 2)

Ingredients:

1 cup oats (I like using 1 minute oats because they cook fast… necessary when I have places to be in the morning! But feel free to use old-fashioned or steel-cut… Whatever floats your boat!)

1 3/4 cup whole milk

2 tsp sliced almonds (or eye the amount you want)

1/4 cup frozen blueberries (again, doesn’t have to be exact- eye the amount you want)

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/8 tsp almond extract

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp butter

pinch of salt

Directions:

Mix the vanilla and almond extract into the milk. Add the oats and cook according to package instructions.  Add in the brown sugar, almonds, butter, pinch of salt, and blueberries. Voila! You now have a delicious, easy, and oh so warm breakfast. Stay warm!!
