Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal

Imagine: You’re at your local bakery.
You have to a make a choice between a huge, fat, freshly baked muffin or a bowl of plain instant oatmeal with an ungodly amount of brown sugar for ‘added flavor’ – which will you go for?For me it’d be obvious – who wouldn’t go for the muffin!? I could go muffin crazy if I ever were to lose my senses; they’re so good, moist, and a treat that’s so hard for me to turn down.But what if those two options came together: still offering that irresistible taste but far more healthier and wholesome..Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal | SpeakLyfe

But my loves, oatmeal doesn’t have to be plain and dreadful? I believe it’s the furthest thing from being bland, and this bowl of oats I had this morning is a true testimony to that 🙂
