Blueberry Lemon Oatmeal

image-3 copy 5 Another day and another bowl of oatmeal… I just love how creative you can be with the flavoring of oatmeal. Since I have no bananas left, but I had plenty of blueberries, I decided blueberry oatmeal it is!

If you ever get sick of having the same breakfast every morning, you should definitely try to add different fruits, spices, nuts, super-foods, or any mixture of toppings to change it up a bit!

This recipe is like blueberry pie…I used a lot of blueberries for a small serving. I also find that using water as a base instead of almond milk, allows the flavors to come through more! You have got to try this yumminess, you won't regret it! ;)
