Blueberry Cheesecake Oatmeal

This oatmeal is sweetened with honey and who doesn't want a little hint of cheesecake in the morning?!

I have always loved oatmeal but I go through spurts where it's all I want for breakfast and snack...every single day. When I was in the hospital after having my third child, I was given plain oatmeal for breakfast one morning with no sugar packets or anything. I was also given strawberry yogurt, so I decided to mix the two together and see what happened and it was SO good. Maybe it was because I was starving, but it quickly became my go-to meal. I got oatmeal-ed out eventually and took some time off eating it. When I started back up, I tried to find some new recipes to try and out and this is one of my top favorites. There is honey for a little sweetness and cinnamon too. The cream cheese is sweetened and is the perfect combination and definitely gives it that cheesecake flavor. It's just a few more steps than making regular oatmeal via the package instructions and really really makes all the difference.

What you need:
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • Honey for sweetness to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. cream cheese
  1. In a small saucepan, combine oatmeal, cinnamon, and honey.
  2. Add water and 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  3. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, honey, and 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract in a small bowl. Blend until light and fluffy with a hand mixer.
  6. Transfer the oatmeal to a bowl and stir in blueberries and cream cheese mixture. Top with a few extra blueberries and serve!
