Creamy Blueberry Walnut Oatmeal |Microwavable, Using Frozen Blueberries

If you are looking for an easy, filling, and delicious breakfast that you can make even when you are short on time, I’ve got you covered!

My Creamy Blueberry Walnut Oatmeal is a perfect option. This is not your average oatmeal though. This may be the creamiest, and I would go out on a limb and say, the most amazing oatmeal you’ve ever tasted. I’m not even exaggerating! It’s so good!

What’s great is that this breakfast comes together in five minutes, from start to finish. This oatmeal is a great comforting meal when you have time to spare, but it’s just as good to take on the go when you are in a rush and don’t have time to sit down and eat breakfast at home.

This recipe is versatile too. You can use pretty much any toppings that you want, but my favorite topping combination is frozen blueberries, walnuts, and a little bit of hemp hearts. This is the perfect breakfast, even on super busy mornings.

Ingredients You Will Need For This Recipe:

1/2 cup of rolled oats

1 cup of water

1/3 cup of egg whites

1/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons of coconut oil

2 teaspoons of pure maple syrup (not pancake syrup)

Frozen Blueberries (as many as you want)

Walnuts (as many as you want)

Hemp Hearts (optional)

Step 1:

Put blueberries in a small bowl and defrost them in the microwave. It usually takes about 1 minute in my microwave. Once your blueberries are defrosted set them aside.

Quick Tip:

Cover your bowl with a napkin so that you don’t end up with blueberry juice all over your microwave.

Step 2:

In a large microwave-safe bowl add 1/2 cup of oats and cover with 1 cup of water. Stir and microwave for 2 minutes.

Quick Tip:

I recommend grabbing a large bowl because the oats will expand and they will overflow if the bowl is not big enough.

Step 3:

While the oats are in the microwave measure out 1/3 cup of egg whites.

Quick Tip:

The egg whites are tasteless in the oatmeal. They just add extra protein and gives the oatmeal a great texture. I recommend using egg whites from the carton. I have never tried using eggs that I separate myself in this recipe.

Step 4:

After 2 minutes, add in the egg whites slowly, stirring the whole time.

Quick Tip:

If you do not add in the egg whites slowly you risk the egg whites scrambling in your oatmeal, which in my opinion is not appetizing. When the egg whites have been added, give your oats one last stir.

Step 5:

Put the egg whites back into the microwave for another 1 1/2 minutes, stopping to stir well every 30 seconds. Again we trying to prevent the egg whites from scrambling. After 1 1/2 minutes take the oats out. At this point, you can add more water, if you think it is too thick for you or microwave a little more if you feel it is too liquidy.

Step 6:

When the oats are at your desired consistency add pure maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. Stir well. At this point, I transfer my oats to another bowl, but you definitely don’t have to.

Step 7:

Top with blueberries, walnuts, and hemp hearts (optional).

Step 8:

Enjoy your delicious bowl of oatmeal!
