Blueberry Pie Oatmeal

Healthy Blueberry Pie Oatmeal! Done in just 10 minutes and so delicious!

One of the most important things in life to me is the pursuit of pie. Pie is very, very dear to me. 

It’s that one food that really just drives me crazy. That flaky crust and gooey caramelized fruit…oh baby! The trick is to get juuusst the perfect ratio of crust to fruit and then you stuff the whole thing in your mouth and just… Bliss. Someone catch me, I’m fainting. 

And don’t you DARE forget that big scoop of vanilla ice cream to compliment each bite. You see, I’ve got it all worked out. You get slow-churned, half-fat vanilla ice cream so you can justify an extra piece of pie. Life is all about balance. That is, until you eat twice the amount of ice cream to go along with pie round #2 because it is a sin to have one without the other. And who wants to be a sinner? NOT ME.

 But sometimes you just don’t have access to pie. If you’re like me, you leave it at your boyfriend’s apartment because you don’t have any self control and would literally make yourself gloriously sick off of it. It’s those sad, sad moments when you need to improvise on how to get your pie fix. 

 And sometimes miracles happen. Like when you’re able to get all the flavor and deliciousness of pie into a bowl of oats and your mind is blown and your tastebuds start to dance! 

 Not only can I satisfy my primordial need for pie, but I can do so in a healthy way! Instead of lathering on the processed sugar, the blueberry pie compote is made with just a half tablespoon of natural honey per serving and the rest of the sweetness comes from the blueberries alone. Oh! And it’s fast too! From start to finish, this recipe takes me just 10 minutes, which is perfect for someone who is always rushing in the morning like me.

 This is one of those breakfasts that can get me out of bed in a jiffy. I kid you not when I say I look forward to waking up so I can get myself perched next to a bowl of these oats. They’re that good! 

 So if you’re like me and have an insatiable sweet tooth, give these fabulous Blueberry Pie Oats a go and get ready to load the train to flavor town. Choo choooooo!

    Oh wow, yep, this is amazing! The gooey fruity stuff on the inside is the best part and you’re telling me I can put it on oatmeal? You’re amazing!!!

    Pie for breakfast? ALWAYS! And how funny that you leave your baking creations at Kyles place – I do that all the time with Jay too :) And then I have banana peanut butter oats at home instead. It works well to satisfy my sweet (pie?) tooth. But now I won’t to try your blueberry variation, which sounds lovely!

    I have to let you know that just reading your title lured me in. This recipe looks so delicious! It’s now on my list of things to make! P.S. Blueberries are my favorite spring fruit :)

    I am eating this as I type and it is so. good. It deliciously warms you all the down to your toes (which don’t have socks on right now and are freezing!). This will be my regular breakfast for awhile, mainly because its really easy to make and is so yummy!
    I also added chunks of protein bar on top for some chocolaty chewiness!

    I just made this for breakfast, it’s delicious :) it was so easy to make . I halved the recipe because I knew if I made the full amount I would probably eat all of it! Thanks for sharing:)

      I’m SO glad it turned out just as well for you! Smart of you to make only one servings worth, I should learn from you haha! It’s hard to resist all that blueberry goodness ;)

    I tried to leave 5 stars but it may not have worked:) excellent recipe , easy and delicious . Thanks for sharing it. I halved it so I wouldn’t eat the whole thing:)

      I honestly just follow the recipe on the back of the box! When I’m feeling lazy, I just microwave the ingredients together and it turns out great! Which oat brand do you use?

        I use Quaker’s oats most of the time, though organic oats are available in our local supermarket in Israel. Is there some standard recipe or does it vary across brands? It always turns out sticky for me. I’m lactose intolerant so I can’t use milk.

        Thanks!

      I think that would work fantastically! I was actually planning on posting another version of these oats using raspberries, so if you could let me know how they turn out I would really appreciate it! :)
