"What is up with all the salt hate? It's an 1/8 teaspoon! It won't kill you, and it just makes things taste better! Having said that, I give this a three simply because I find the idea of milk in oatmeal to be repugnant and it's oatmeal! The directions are right there on the box and you can add anything you want to it! That's the beauty and simplicity of oatmeal. :)"

"I prepared this recipe this morning and declare it a winner. It is not only easy but delicious. So much better than the purchased flavored oatmeal. The only thing I will do next time is leave out the salt. Those of you who salt everything, may want to leave it in. This oatmeal is good anytime. I buy fresh blueberries in the summer and freeze for winter. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."

"This recipe is simple and delicious, exactly what I need to make a quick breakfast before work. I am on a low-sodium diet, so I omitted the salt and it was great. No more packaged oatmeal for me!"

"I add ground flaxseed (cold milled), dash of ground cinnamon and use light vanilla soy milk. No salt or sweetener. Can also add frozen cherries for natural sweetness and nutrition. Simple, comforting recipe with a wallop of nutritional goodness and it keeps you full for hours."

"I have a similar recipe that I use. 1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal, 3/4 cup skim milk, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 tblsp Whey Low Gold brown sugar, a pinch of cinnamon, a splash of vanilla and 1 tblsp sliced almonds.

I cook the oatmeal and 1/2 cup skim milk and 1/2 cup water together for about 5 min. Thaw the blueberries in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Dump the oatmeal over the blueberries, add remaining 1/4 skim milk, vanilla, cinnamon and Whey Low brown sugar. Mix all together and sprinkle with almonds. Almost like dessert and only 305 calories."

"You know, I read all the reviews, good and bad. Yes oatmeal has been around forever but can you find anything more creamy, wonderful, warm and satisfying every morning? I can't. I have eaten it all my life and still love it. (I'm 75 years old). When I don't feel well (not just because I am getting older) I have oatmeal for dinner and it just makes me feel soooo much better. So think a little before being negative about any wonderful recipe just because you don't like it. Everyone can't love every recipe but keep a little kindness going for good feelings......."

"Since this was the "recipe of the day" on line I was curious what made oatmeal with blueberries so special and found out actually nothing. I agree with fe-eagle213 this is just basically oatmeal with fruit. As for "beginner" cooks like qwm, the recipe is on the side of the oatmeal box."

"I make a more "heart-healthy" version of this every morning - water rather than milk, and no sugar. I also add finely chopped almonds, and recently have been adding a tablespoon of ground flax seeds (supposed to be good for me, but I can't taste any difference). One thing I do for a little variety - sometimes instead of adding the blueberries at the end, I cook them with the oatmeal - makes them softer. Or I add frozen blueberries to the cooked oatmeal - there's a little surprise zing when I bite into a cold berry in the hot oatmeal."
