  1. I thought this would make a nice change for my 11 months old son brekky but I was a tad disappointed, it was really quite bland even for his tastes..I think maybe using juice rather than water to cook would do the trick or perhaps some grated apple for extra sweetness.
  2. I was rather dissapointed with the way this turned out. It overflowed in my microwave, didn't thicken up very much, and didn't taste as much like a blueberry corn muffin as I was anticipating. If I were to try it again, I would use less water, a much deeper bowl, and add plenty of butter/sugar etc.
  3. This was really good! I have to warn, though, that my cornmeal's first time in the microwave it boiled over (even after being covered in plastic wrap.) Maybe I should have used a deeper bowl. Just keep an eye on it. After I put the blueberries in, I just microwaved for 30 seconds uncovered and it was ready to eat. I had my mush with 1/4 blueberries, some Splenda and a splash of almond milk. Thanks for the recipe! It's great to have something a little different to eat for breakfast and snacks.
  4. Have been trying to eat healthier lately and this breakfast is excellent. Thanks for sharing this. I just sent it off to my 92 year old Grandmother who LOVES anything healthy. I expect rave reviews from her too :) Thanks Clare!
  5. This is a great quick option for breakfast!...I love my oatmeal, but this is a nice change when I need something different, or something faster...mixes up very quickly. I also add a little light brown sugar.
