Oatmeal doesn’t have much flavor on its own, so most people add brown sugar or yogurt to their oatmeal, but I found a way to make oatmeal sweet without any sugars, powders, sweeteners, or dried fruit. It’s low in calories and tastes like a creamy, decadent dessert.


½ cup old fashioned oats

1 ripe large banana, smashed with tines of a fork

1 cup water

½ cup frozen or fresh blueberries

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract, optional

¼ cup unsweetened plant milk (try my hemp milk recipe below)

½-1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Optional toppings: chopped walnuts or pecans

Put oats, banana and water into a small saucepan on medium-high heat. When it comes to a boil, turn heat off, cover, and leave on burner for a few minutes. Add blueberries, vanilla extract, cinnamon and stir. (recipe continues below)

Cover pot and put heat on medium to warm up if the frozen blueberries have cooled the oatmeal too much. Add the plant milk and stir gently. Spoon oatmeal into a small bowl and drizzle ½ of a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar on top.

The sweet and tartness combination from the balsamic vinegar pairs perfectly with the blueberries. Add more balsamic vinegar as desired.
