When we have a little more time on our hands one fun weekend breakfast we like to make is a nice big pot of oatmeal. There is just something so pleasant about sitting down to a nice warm bowl of oats and a cup of hot tea. We love to doctor our oatmeal up with lots of different toppings and one of our favorite ways to indulge in something sweet is when we make Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal. It’s loaded with sweet blueberries, cinnamon and vanilla, and just a touch of brown sugar…yum!

We tend to use Old-fashioned rolled oats (and usually of the gluten free variety too!), but feel free to use what you have on hand (just make sure to follow the package directions). We also use fresh, frozen, or dried blueberries depending on what is on hand each season. It’s still pretty chilly here in Chicago so we currently rotate between either frozen or dried. And a word to the wise, if you do use fresh or frozen, you may want to mix your blueberries in right before you eat as they will turn your oatmeal into a pretty purple color!!!

I love a hearty breakfast that doesn’t take forever to make, don’t you? So simple…oats and blueberries….

a pinch of salt, water or milk of you choice, vanilla, cinnamon, and some light brown sugar to sweeten it up a bit. Perfection!!! So real quick, can I just share with you how much I love this new flip-top canister of Domino® Pourable Light Brown Sugar, which you can see in the picture up above!!! They offer it with their Domino® Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar as well (We have Domino® brand here in the Midwest, but if you’re in the Western half of the country, be sure to look for its “sister brand” C&H® Sugar in grocery stores!). It is seriously the best thing ever for little hands (and big hands too, lol!). My kids were always dumping the whole bag of clumpy brown sugar into their oatmeal before this nifty new invention. It’s like a prayer answered for moms with independent, strong-willed children who must do everything themselves!

This pourable brown sugar is free-flowing and does NOT clump, hooray! It’s available in a dispenser with a sleek design that fits comfortably in your hand and has new recloseable flip-top lid. This way you can pour or sprinkle your sugar with ease and without having to break up messy clumps! The pourable brown sugar also measures cup for cup as regular brown sugar so there is no need to “pack it” when measuring.

Look for Domino® Sugar canisters, or it’s sister brand, C&H® Sugar, at a grocery store near you. For a coupon, visit HERE, or for C&H® brand, visit HERE. For a chance to win a $100 VISA gift card, share with me in the comments below, “What’s your favorite way to use brown sugar?”
