Here’s how I put mine together…

Ingredients (Serves 1)
½ Cup Organic GF Old Fashioned Oats
1 Cup Filtered water
Pinch of Salt

½ Cup Frozen Wild Blueberries
1-2 Tbs. Forever Herbs Blueberry Jalapeno Compote

Prepare oatmeal by combining oats, water and salt in a pan over medium heat. Briskly stir or whisk oatmeal to make a creamy consistency – just until boiling. Then stir occasionally for about 5 mins. Pour oatmeal in a serving bowl and let rest for 5 minutes.

In a microwave safe bowl, microwave frozen blueberries at 50% power for 1 minute 20 seconds. Add in Blueberry Jalapeno Compote – microwave on high for 15-20 seconds. Stir to combine.

Pour Very Blueberry Jalapeno Compote over Oatmeal and topping with your favorite toppings such as sliced almonds, brown sugar or maple syrup and almond milk.
