I just love this oatmeal and eat it almost every day. You can sprinkle it with some chopped nuts or seeds but then it won't be core.


  1. Combine oats and milk.
  2. Heat on stove top at medium heat until mixture comes to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat simmer until thick, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add frozen berries and heat through.
  5. Season to taste.
  6. Enjoy.

This made a nice breakfast. I followed other reviewers and used half milk half water and added almond extract (1/8 teaspoon) - which really added something to this. Blackberries, cherries and cranberries were the only frozen fruit I had in the house, so that is what I used, and it worked out well (even the cranberries!). I like how the juice from the frozen berries comes out and colors and flavors the oatmeal.

I had this for lunch today and this recipe is excellent! I was curious about using milk to cook the oatmeal (as this is the way I cook grits) and it worked very well. I used organic skim milk, allowed it to come to a simmer, added the old fashioned oats, cooking and stirring until tender; then added 1/2 cup of frozen mixed berried (blueberries, blackberries and marrion berries), and stirred until defrosted. I added additional skim milk, a light sprinkling of cinnamon and some brown sugar to complete my delicious bowlful of oatmeal! I will definitely make this again, Dreamer in Ontario!

Yum! This is quick and easy, and the berries are a delicious way to dress up oatmeal. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 56
