Healthy Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal (WW Points available)

Even if you've only just gotten acquainted with me, you may already know...

I.LOVE.OATMEAL!

It's warm and comforting and can be made quickly. 

And this is a healthier way to begin your day.  

Simple too! I added a little protein powder, and increased the amount of powdered creamer.

BLUEBERRY MUFFIN OATMEAL 

1/2 c. old-fashioned oats
(You can always use quick, but I love the texture) 
2 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)
1 Tb. sugar-free French vanilla powdered creamer
1 Tb. vanilla protein powder, optional 
1 no-calorie sweetener packet
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
Dash cinnamon
Dash salt
1 c. unsweetened (vanilla) almond milk 
1/2 c. fresh or thawed (frozen) blueberries 
(if frozen, drained and blotted dry)

In medium saucepan, combine all ingredients except blueberries. Mix in 1 cup water.


Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cook and stir until thick and creamy, 12 - 15 minutes.



(I love making oatmeal in the microwave, so I use just a little less water...cook it 2 minutes at a time...on high...stirring after each, until it's the right consistency). 



Stir in blueberries, and transfer to a bowl. Let slightly cool and thicken. Enjoy!
