Blueberry Oatmeal with Lilac Syrup

Hello everyone – happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and you’re ready to start new week off right. Indeed, this recipe would fill the bill; it’s heathy yet offers something special.

Lilac Love

But first I need announce something important. I am all about lilac recipes! Yes, that’s correct. In case you’ve missed my previous posts, I already shared this Lilac Syrup and Lilac Martini Vermouth Cocktail. Oh yeah, that boozy cocktail is fabulous, you should give it a try! In fact, I have a couple of lovely ideas more. Luckily, the lilac season in our area is almost over, otherwise, there would be a change me posting only lilac ideas this summer

#IAmSorryDearLavender – I am such a betrayer!

So, today we are going to enjoy this Blueberry Oatmeal with Lilac Syrup. It is quite similar to this Coconut Blueberry Oatmeal (But even easier). However, you will need to make this Lilac Syrup. Thus, I encourage you to make a large batch (If lilacs are still blooming) because, trust me, you will want to have it. If not – you can always use it for fancy cocktails :)

Blueberry Oatmeal with Lilac Syrup

This Blueberry Oatmeal with Lilac Syrup requires only a few ingredients such as oats, lilac syrup, blueberries, and salt. Normally, I use water for my oatmeal, but you can swap for milk or coconut milk, for a more decadent version.

Also, this oatmeal is subtly sweet, with a light botanical flavour. Of course, that depends on how much of the syrup would you use. Feel free to adjust to your level of sweetness, adding more or less of the syrup.

I hope you will like this oatmeal idea, and you will indulge yourself for your weekend breakfast. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram  message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
