Vanilla Blueberry Oatmeal
“My family loves fruity flavored oatmeals like this one,” explains Renee Endress from Galva, Illinois. “I came up with this recipe when I had lots of blueberries on hand, and it became an instant favorite. Not only is it nutritious and filling, but it smells so wonderful and homey.” TIP: For a change of pace, try different fruits or flavors of nondairy creamer.

This is very good, but I didn't have French vanilla creamer so I used vanilla powder. I would also recommend try vanilla extract.
