Breakfast or Dessert? You decide!

I have been a fan of oat meal for some time now, especially since my children LOVE it so much. Seriously, they totally LOVE it, as in it's a treat for them, which is a far cry from where I was when I was little!

Anyways, I posted way back in January....this post in which I talked about making oatmeal and then throwing frozen fruit into it. The oatmeal cools off nicely and thaws the fruit and when you sit down to have breakfast everything is one happy bowl of goodness and I thought, 'It can't get any better then this!' That was, until yesterday.

Yesterday I went to visit my newly married sister-in-law, (who's blog you can read here and you can also see her wedding photos here on my website shameless plug I know.) Anyways we got talking about oatmeal....because that's all newlyweds and stay at home moms have to talk about....*blank stare* not quite! We got to talking about oatmeal because the days are getting cooler and we are both avid lovers of autumn days!

So I was telling her about frozen fruit in oatmeal when she revealed to me this interesting and yet at first thought, revolting idea;

Topping said oatmeal with yogurt.

Okay, so revolting is a bit strong of a word. But when she first mentioned it I just couldn't think through the idea of the textures and I don't know, it just didn't seem to fit. Then she proceeded to sway me by comparing it to melted ice cream on apple crisp.....

I do like apple crisp......

.... and I do so very much like ice cream.

So giving her the benefit of the doubt, this was my breakfast today....

And wow, was she right! I'm sorry for doubting you Stephanie! It was delicious, blueberry oatmeal with vanilla yogurt, tasty, filling, healthy, wondrous!

Dessert for breakfast...yum......this is gonna be a good winter!



  1. It actually sounds wonderful. This is my first visit to your blog so I decided to spend some time browsing through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. You've created a great spot for your readers to visit and I really enjoyed the time I spent here. I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. Yum yum yum. I love oatmeal, too. I never thought of having it as a sweet delicious healthy desert, but I'm going to rethink this and enjoy the goodness. Thanks.

  3. Ugh. See, I cannot stand oatmeal. My Mom made us eat it growing up, and I just cannot stand it. BUT, this is Q's favorite way to eat it! Oatmeal with forzen blueberries and yogurt on top. Sometimes he likes slivered almonds added, for a little crunch. ;) I never breathe a word to him about me not liking oatmeal, I just let him enjoy his. ;)


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
