Description

Naturally hued and so beautiful, this quick blueberry oatmeal recipe is the perfect start to the morning! Wholesome old-fashioned oats are cooked with fresh blueberries and lightly sweetened with maple syrup to make for the easiest, most delicious Maple Blueberry Oatmeal.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 cups old fashioned / rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract (optional)
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, divided

Instructions

  1. Add water, milk, maple syrup, and salt to a medium pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Once boiling, lower the heat to medium-low and add in the chia seeds, oatmeal, and 1 cup of the blueberries.
  3. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the oats have thickened up and are tender, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the maple extract.
  4. Divide the oatmeal into dishes, adding the remaining blueberries on top of the oatmeal.

Notes

Quick oats can be substituted, but the texture will be slightly different and they won't need to be cooked for as long.

You can use any combination of water and milk in this recipe, so long as the total is 3-1/2 cups.

Natural Maple Flavor/Extract is awesome if you can find it. It's not essential for this recipe, but I love adding just a splash of maple extract to this oatmeal to bump up the maple taste

Store meal prep or leftover oatmeal in a container and let it cool completely before placing the cover on. Do not add the extra blueberries to the oatmeal. Add them later when reheating and serving.
