Berry Almond Oatmeal

It’s no secret that I am a serious oatmeal connoisseur.


This bowl features some of my favourites – creamy Quaker oatmeal made in milk and water, fresh blueberries and blackberries, a sprinkling of toasted sliced almonds, and a puddle of almond butter. The almond butter makes the whole bowl of oatmeal. I like getting a tiny spoonful in each bite, and I NEVER mix it all together (the horror!). Now, this was before I discovered granola as an oatmeal topper. :mrgreen:


I can’t wait until May for the farmer’s market. Local, fresh berries are truly irreplaceable in the winter! Trust me, I’ve tried it all – there are frozen berries in the freezer and dried berries in the cupboards. Nothing can beat farmer’s market berries, especially on top of oatmeal. Yum!


Is there a food that you consider yourself an expert on?

Mine is definitely oatmeal. Like Kath of Kath Eats Real Food (see the Oatmeal Queen’s blog for thousands of craaaazy oat concoctions!, I eat oatmeal at LEAST 6 days a week. Too many people look down on oatmeal because it’s “too mushy” or “too healthy” (my dad). Not true! Like salad, oatmeal is all about the toppings. I like nut butter, granola, and chocolate chips if I’m feeling rowdy. 😛
