Lemon Blueberry Oat Bran

Dude.  I surprised myself with how good this is!!  It could quite possibly be my new favorite breakfast!!!  Though really, it feels more like a “treat” than a breakfast, it just turned out so good!

Have you ever tried Oat Bran?  I hadn’t until a month or so ago…and discovered that I love it.  I was raised eating Malt O Meal…my favorite hot cereal!!  Much creamier and smooth than oatmeal, and a fantastic flavor!  Sad thing is…when I moved to New York, I could not find it any where!!!  So sad!  I could find Malt O Meal brand cold cereal…but never the creamy deliciousness of my childhood.  I found that I enjoyed Cream of Rice…however the whole white rice thing didn’t seem healthy to me.   And then I stumbled upon Oat Bran.  Hallelujah, I have found something to fill the hole in my sad lonely little tummy!!!

And then…then I had this idea.  I tell you what.  Hot cereal will never be the same.  Somehow, without putting anything real bad in it…this ended up tasting like it had a lemony powdered sugar glaze.  It was heavenly.  And now I am going to share with you how you can make this heavenly creation for yourself.  IT IS SO EASY!!!


So, here’s what you need:

  • 2/3 C Oat Bran
  • 2 C Water
  • Dash of Salt
  • Tbsp(ish) Raw Agave (do it to taste!!)
  • Dash of Lemon Extract (1/8-1/4 tsp)
  • 2 Tbsp Dehydrated Blueberries (Or fresh…I had a bag of dehydrated ones from Trader Joes.  They plumped up nicely and worked perfectly!)

And here’s how you do it:

  1. Follow the package instructions…or bring the water and salt to a boil.
  2. Stir in Oat Bran and simmer for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in lemon extract, Agave, and blueberries.
  4. Eat and be comforted from the inside out!!
