Blueberry Pie Breakfast

This has been my breakfast the last 2 days, and it will probably continue to be all week.
ooey, gooey blueberries
hearty, piping hot oats
melt-in-your-mouth brown sugar
crunchy, nutty pecans

So much tastiness in a bowl! It's healthy, right at 300 calories, and has kept me full for a solid 4 hours (a feat, trust me).

Blueberry Pie Oatmeal
one bowl
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (or whatever you have)
1 cup water
1/3 cup blueberries
Dash of cinnamon
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon chopped pecans (optional)
In a microwaveable bowl (I used the trusty ceramic Fiestaware), add oats, water, blueberries, and a dash of cinnamon. No need to stir.

Microwave for 3 minutes, or until oats are bubbly and cooked. Careful, hot! Top with brown sugar and pecans.

Wait 5 minutes to cool. The longest 5 minutes of your life. Enough time to wonder if you should grab those donut holes on the kitchen counter to hold you over. Resist the donuts. Then eat this satisfying, healthy breakfast. :)
