Wow! Who knew that coffee creamer in oatmeal worked. I made as directed except I addes some flax seed to it. Very good and very healthy. Thanks!

This was really good oatmeal! I just love fresh blueberries and I thought the addition of the coffee creamer was a good idea. I would maybe use half the amount of creamer next time just because I thought it made it a bit to watery, but I will be making this again for sure!

Loved it! Made a very filling breakfast for me this morning - I usually don't add milk/cream to my oatmeal so this was something a little different. I used frozen blueberries and did everything in the microwave. The cream and blueberries were a sweet addition to plain oatmeal - wouldn't change a thing!

I liked the creaminess of the porridge but it was lacking a little bit in flavour for me. I added a sprinkling of brown sugar to make it a little sweeter and a touch more cinnamon. The blueberries with the French vanilla were a nice combination. Thanks!

Nice, easy, fast and a good way to get oatmeal into people who say they don't like oatmeal.

This was very good and filling. Loved the blueberries. I used the creamer and it seemed to make the oatmeal a little gooey, but we liked the flavor. Thanks

I loved this oatmeal (and how could I not have thought of this before!). I omitted the creamer and used a mixture of sugar/cinnamon to top. I added my berries when my water had boiled and cooked with the oatmeal, my result looking like Ladypit's photo. Thanks Toni, for posting. Roxygirl

This is quick and a nice treat for breakfast. I did't have flavored creamer, so I used half and half. If you use half and half, you'll need to add more cinnamon so that the nutty taste of the cinnamon balances out the sweetness of the blueberries. Had I not added the extra cinnamon, I think the contrast of the sweet blueberries and the bland oatmeal would have been too stark. Thanks for posting.

This was really good. I had to make the coffee creamer as it is not readily available here in Oz. I used Copycat French Vanilla Liquid Coffee Creamer for that. It was lovely & sweet but not overly so & a nice creamy consistency. I used frozen berries & the only change I made was to use milk for cooking rather than water. Made for ZWT III.

this made a fab snack for me today. I love oatmeal and really enjoyed this version. I used dried blueberries sent me by a friend (can't get blueberries here in any way, shape or form) and added a dash of vanilla and cream instead of the coffee creamer. It was as good as a dessert, and entirely satisfying.
