Saturday Morning with Blueberry Vanilla Oatmeal

Tart blueberries, toasty walnuts, and sweet vanilla make this sunny Saturday morning even more delicious.

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with oatmeal, but I particularly love this breakfast combination because it's crunchy, sweet, creamy, hearty, healthy all in one bowl.

Simply add 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup water, and 1/2 cup whole rolled oats to a big microwave safe bowl and cook on high for 4 minutes. Meanwhile, take 1/4 cup of walnut halves and toast them over medium heat in a pan, taking care not to burn them. When the oatmeal is ready, stir in 1 t. of cinnamon, 1 t. vanilla extract, 1 t. maple syrup, and stir. Then top the oatmeal with the toasted walnuts and a couple generous handfuls of blueberries. Return the bowl to the microwave and heat everything through for 1 minute. 

Enjoy immediately, and get ready to have a really great day!
