I really only serve cold cereal a few times a year as the kids prefer hot cereals like this Berry Delicious Oatmeal. It’s one of the easiest, most nutritious breakfast recipes to make when you literally have 5 minutes to cook and keeps happy bellies and moods all around.

At this time of year when kids are headed back to school, most moms are focused on a million things, among them, trying to put together healthy school lunches that their kids will hopefully enjoy. Though possibly even more important than what’s for lunch, is offering your little ones a meal first thing in the morning that will give them a boost of energy to get them out the door and stay focused in the classroom.

Oatmeal is not only nutritious, but also inexpensive and a real “stick to your ribs” food. It’s delicious with a bit of honey or a touch of maple syrup, but why not add some blueberries for added vitamins and sweet flavor? Berry Delicious Oatmeal is not only bright and colorful, it’s a breakfast that will send your kids off to school with a smile on their faces.

The best part of this recipe is that you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry. Oats, check. Honey. Check. Frozen berries? If you don’t have a few bags on hand at all times you really should! You can use frozen berries in smoothies, in icing and especially in warm cereals. The oats can be piping hot and when you add the berries in at the last moment it cools the cereal down to the perfect temperature for little mouthes to enjoy.

In the comments below I would love to hear what your family enjoys best in their oatmeal and if you make this recipe I want to see the images! Just tag @weelicious or #weerecipes on social media. Enjoy!

  1. Would it still taste good if I make this the night before, put it in the fridge and heat it up the next morning?

  2. I was super excited to try this oatmeal for my 16 month old this morning. unfortunately , he didn’t like it. Maybe I’ll try it again sometime. I liked it though 🙂
