Bowl of Breakfast Yum

‘Breakfast is the most important meal of the day’. Is it true?  As long as I can have this Breakfast Bowl, I am not sure if I care.

I found the recipe for this version of oatmeal in Instapot’s 4th version of their app.  I eliminated some ingredients, added what I like, and I do ❤️ the results.

1 C steel cut oats

2 C water

1 C milk of choice

Cinnamon to taste

2 drops of vanilla extract.

Put all of the above in your Instapot.  Stir so all of the oats get wet.

3 minutes of high pressure, natural release, and we have creamy oatmeal.

(I may have shown my Breakfast Bowl of Yum to SpecialK and called it “Porridge or Gruel”.)

I enjoy it fresh and refrigerate remainders.  I reheat each 1/2 C serving approx 45 seconds and this is the time it all gets interesting.

To the top of each bowl, I add fresh blueberries (soon to be frozen ones as I am out of fresh), toasted walnuts and some Maple Grove Farms Sugar Free Maple Flavor Syrup.


Creamy, crunchy, juicy, and sweet; have I missed anything?  Creamy oats because they were cooked with milk, juicy blueberries, buttery crisp walnuts, and some sweetness.  I tried pecans, and they just weren’t right.


Being that fresh blueberries will not be fresh year round, I foresee apple cinnamon oats in my future.  While there are blueberries, I have this bowl of yum. Good to the last spoonful.


What is your favorite ‘no thought’ breakfast?
