Recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal Doughnuts, a handheld twist on classic hot oatmeal topped with fresh blueberries. A light cake light textured cinnamon and oat doughnut topped with blueberry frosting and berries.
I love oatmeal topped with fruit, mixed with peanut butter, and drizzled with honey as much as the next person. But, it always gets soggy before I finish the bowl. I want the texture of that first bite to last until I’m finished. I guess its the same as cereal..crunchy then soggy. Or maybe I should just eat faster, who knows. Anyways, blueberry oatmeal is a flavor that we all enjoy. Instead of going the traditional muffin route, I decided to zig a little and try doughnuts with blueberry icing!!
