How to Accidentally Make Blueberry Pie Oats

Blueberry pie oatsBegin in the usual fashion -- 1/4 cup oat bran and 1/8+ cup oats into a cute bowl.  Add:

  • dash of cinnamon

  • spoonful of pumpkin puree

  • dribble of applesauce

  • 2 packets of Truvia

  • 1/4 cup (ish) of water

Taste test.  Discover that it is too sweet.  Shrug; it tastes like apple pie, at least, which is no bad thing.

Open bag of frozen berries.  Begin to shuffle a few out.  Shriek when shuffling turns into a blueberry avalanche.

Scowl, cuss, then rescue uncontaminated blueberries from the bowl.  Stir.  Microwave for 2 (or more) minutes.

Stir again.  Taste test.  Decide that it's not too sweet after all.  Delight in the blueberry pie-ness of it all.  Photograph, blog, and devour.

What's your favorite accidental recipe?

  1. oh crap that looks amazing!

  3. Oh wow, this looks so delicious!
    There are so many oatmeal recipies I want to try, but I can't seem to party away from craisins (& sometimes additional blueberries) oatmeal that I have every morning.
