Makes 1 serving
1/2 Cup Dry, Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (I use Organic, Whole Grain)

1/2 Cup (4oz) Blueberries, Fresh
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 oz (14 halves) Walnuts, chopped
Mix oats and water in bowl and microwave 3-5 minutes. Let cool for ~2 minutes. When cool, put blueberries, in and mix. After, put walnuts on top of oats, drip honey over it, and sprinkle cinnamon on top.

You can substitute the walnuts for pecans, blueberries for strawberries or bananas or any other fruit, or dried fruit if you prefer. If it is too much sweetness, do not use as much honey or cinnamon.
I like the fresh fruit because it cools down the hotness of the oats and the honey and cinnamon sweetens it up, with the walnuts adding flavor and a good dose of healthy fats. Great meal after your wake-up protein shake, and/or with some eggs.
