You can't go wrong with simple, delicious blueberry oatmeal. This go-to breakfast meal is made with just a few ingredients and takes only minutes to make!
I am an oatmeal fan! It's so versatile and easy to incorporate into your daily meals. Packed with fiber and other amazing nutrients, you just can't go wrong with oats and some fruit!
If blueberries aren't your thing, I have another delicious vegan oatmeal right here, with apples!
You can use any fruit you wish, of course, it does not have to be blueberries.
I am using coconut sugar, but feel free to use any sugar you have available! Maple syrup also works just fine.
While I use coconut milk, you may use any plant-based milk.
See recipe card for quantities.
Not many steps to make this oatmeal!
- Add your milk or water to a pot or deep enough pan and bring to a boil.
- Lower the heat.
- Add in all ingredients and allow to simmer until your oatmeal is thick (around 5 minutes you should start to see thickening).
If you want finer oatmeal, get a smaller oat size or blend your oats a bit before adding to the hot liquid. This will give you a porridge-like feel to your morning oats!
This oatmeal stores perfectly in the refrigerator for up to 4 days! Be sure to store in an airtight container. No need to separate ingredients.
This oatmeal can be frozen and thawed and eaten as normal.
Oatmeal is so versatile, that you can ultimately do anything with it and make it yours. Don't like blueberries? That's okay! You can use any fruit to mix in or top your oatmeal! Apples, bananas, peaches, pears, and strawberries to name a few.
Make sure you go for frozen fruits every time for some super sweet fruit that doesn't need added extra sugar. The water content will help break down the fruit more and leave you with even sweeter berries!
You don't have to stop at just fruit! You can add other things like chia and flax seeds for added nutrition.
My go-to is hemp seeds. The added texture, crunch, and protein, (plus plant-based omega's) can't be beaten!

Nearly any fruit you can think of! Banana's, strawberries, blueberries, mangoes, apples, peaches, pears, pineapple, etc. You can use pretty much any fruit in cahoots with oatmeal.
For the most part, yes! But it can totally depend on what you add to it. For instance, too much sugar can suddenly turn a healthy breakfast into a dessert!
