I love to start the day with a warm bowl of oatmeal, and the variations are endless. The blueberries were purchased in season and then frozen (thanks Mom!) and they made me think of summer. This was the first time I toasted walnuts in the microwave, and it worked fairly well. I probably could have cooked the nuts for another minute, but I was afraid of scorching them. Overall though, this was a wonderful bowl of oats.
1/2 c. oats
1 c. skim milk
1/4 c. blueberries
2 T walnuts
Mix oats, milk, and blueberries in a saucepan and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, spread the walnuts in a single layer on a dish, and cook in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir, and repeat the process 2 more times. When oats reach the desired consistency, stir in the walnuts and serve.
