A fast, healthy and fun treat for those purple-loving little ones. I love oatmeal for our breakfasts because it’s gluten-free, a good source of low residue fiber, and can be sweetened with everything from honey and maple syrup to simple fresh fruit. I prefer rolled oats for their speed of cooking, but the patient spouse-unit always goes for the steel-cut oats. Whichever one, this is a toddler and baby favorite for us.
- 1/4 cup of rolled oats
- 1/2 cup water
- handful of blueberries
Add all ingredients to a bowl and microwave for one minute, ten seconds. Mash with a fork until berry skins color the oatmeal purple and serve.
