This is so easy, delicious & healthy! We tried this with raspberries & didn't like it as much. I found this on a vegetarian website & made a few minor adjustments. Enjoy! Your cholesterol levels will thank you, lol.

I'm a bit of a sweet tooth so this was just okay for me, a bit too bland until I stirred through some vanilla yoghurt to sweeten and add more flavour. I usually cook my oats in milk & I think I'll be sticking to that method as the water doesn't really give it the creamy texture I'm used to.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring water to a rapid boil.
  2. Stir in oats, lemon zest, cinnamon, flaxseed, & nutmeg. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it is the consistency you like.
  3. Add blueberries & cook 5 minutes longer. Add walnuts, shut off the heat, put the lid on & let stand 5 minutes.
  4. Serve & enjoy! We do sprinkle a little vanilla sugar on ours. ;).
