"Another entry in my collection of oatmeal ideas. My guess is this would also work well with apricots or some other flavored creamer."

"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 recipe #191026 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."
"This was fantastic!! I am an oatmeal fiend, I can't believe I haven't thought of this before. So simple but it tastes soooo rich and good!"
"Perfect. Delicious. The french vanilla coffee creamer adds sweetness and creaminess. No need for additional sugar. I never think to use the flavored coffee creamer in anything but coffee and hot chocolate, but I will now. Next I want to try peaches and butter pecan coffee creamer. YUM."
"I never cared much for oatmeal, but with recipes like this I am changing my mind. This is very Good!. Thanks for a great recipe."
"This is nice and creamy. I used Irish oatmeal and added the frozen berries toward the end of cooking. I added a touch of brown sugar when serving. Delicious."
"This is a nice creamy breakfast. I used quick cooking oats and frozen blueberries. I made the mistake of cooking the oats the 1 minute prescribed on the package and then, after that minute, adding the frozen berries. This, basically, made it ice cold immediately. I would recommend that if you are planning on using frozen berries you put them in while cooking. I used soy creamer which was fine. The creaminess was nice; usually I only achieve that kind of creaminess using milk as the main liquid. I do think I'd like it to be a little bit sweeter. But I enjoyed it and plan on trying it again! Thanks toni. Your oatmeals are out of this world!"
