Delilah - March 14, 2022, 3:20 p.m.

I have to say, when I saw this recipe I thought it might be fine, or just plain, but it was actually so delicious! I didn't even have almond milk ( I used oat milk) or the extract, but it still turned out so good! Definitely gonna become a regular, Thank you so much!!

PUL Team - March 14, 2022, 11:11 p.m.

We're so glad to hear, Delilah, it means so much!


Antonina - March 9, 2022, 5:36 p.m.

I tried this recipe today, and with all the flavors and toppings with different textures, it was DELICIOUS even though I made it just with water!!! (run out of any kind of milk 😮‍💨) Definitely will make it again, this time with almond milk :)

PUL Team - March 10, 2022, 9:32 p.m.

We appreciate it so much, Antonina, thank you! Enjoy ✨☺️

Awe thank you, Kaylin!


Britta - Feb. 24, 2022, 9:52 a.m.

Super creamy and delicious porridge! Tried it as overnight oats with the same ingredients and works as well. Love it!

PUL Team - Feb. 25, 2022, 1:06 a.m.

A delicious idea, Britta, thank you 😍


Kat - Feb. 20, 2022, 5:24 p.m.

Omgosh this is so good. I love your recipes and appreciate the format of your website. Beautiful, to the point and not junked up with ads. As for the oatmeal, mine came out a little greyish because I used frozen blueberries. Still delicious though! Adding the small amount of almond extract is inspired.

PUL Team - Feb. 20, 2022, 11:02 p.m.

Oh, Kat, we're grinning from ear to ear! Thank you for the kind words and glowing feedback ✨


Agathe fontaine - Feb. 17, 2022, 5:43 p.m.

hey, PUL ! Can you tell me where did you buy your measuring cups ? I just love them !!😍

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2022, 2:06 a.m.

Hey Agathe! They were purchased from a local Dutch shop in the Netherlands called Blokker. We put a similar pair in our webshop in case you're interested here: https://amzn.to/3vAqpY1 😊


Juliette - Feb. 14, 2022, 10:21 a.m.

I just finished it, it was amazing! One of the most "baked goods-porridge" I've ever eaten! Thank you for all your amazing recipes, I keep coming back to them and it's always a success 🥰

PUL Team - Feb. 14, 2022, 10:32 p.m.

Oh it means so much, Juliette, thank you 🥰


Julie - Feb. 13, 2022, 2:05 p.m.

This recipe is sooooo good! We are far away from old plain oatmeal! Will cook this over and over!

PUL Team - Feb. 14, 2022, 5:58 a.m.

We're so happy to hear, Julie, enjoy!


LovesAlot - Feb. 13, 2022, 1:10 a.m.

I really don't like bananas soooo I used strawberries lool I got purple Oatmeal but it was good and sweet. This was great because I was looking for a way to cut out sugar from my diet.

PUL Team - Feb. 14, 2022, 3:10 a.m.

Mmm strawberries sounds incredible, LovesAlot, thank you :)


Devyn - Feb. 10, 2022, 2:10 a.m.

This is the third oatmeal I tried from this website, and I LOVED it.
I didn’t have the yogurt or the butter for toppings, but I topped it with chopped coconut and chia seeds.

PUL Team - Feb. 10, 2022, 5:58 a.m.

Woop woop! So happy the oatmeals are being enjoyed, Devyn 😊


Nina Valeriano - Feb. 7, 2022, 5:56 p.m.

I make oatmeal all the time, but this one stands out!! I think the addition of frozen fruit give is a special sweet boost without being overwhelming. Super delish 😋

PUL Team - Feb. 8, 2022, 10:38 p.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, Nina, thank you!


Fortuna - Feb. 5, 2022, 2:34 p.m.

Amazing and testy breakfast.


Elyse - Jan. 26, 2022, 4:04 p.m.

Really tasty! I love the color that the blueberries almost immediately infuse the oatmeal with as it's cooking. It's something I never would have thought to do before seeing this recipe. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

PUL Team - Jan. 27, 2022, 7:03 p.m.

Woohoo! We're beyond happy to hear, Elyse :)


Pearl - Jan. 26, 2022, 6:42 a.m.

This was great! I made a batch and portioned it for meal prep. As a busy college student, this is great to heat up in the morning and go! The color was not as vibrant since I used regular blueberries instead of wild ones, but the taste is light and delicate compared to the mocha oatmeal recipe. I used a splash of agave instead of maple syrup since the bananas sweetened the oatmeal. Thanks a TON, this is very tasty!!!

PUL Team - Jan. 27, 2022, 6:52 p.m.

So thrilled it was enjoyed, Pearl! Wishing you an abundance of wellness and success with your studies ❣️📚


Thien - Jan. 24, 2022, 2:22 a.m.

Wonderful recipe! I think another commenter did this too, but I just leave out the syrup and the banana makes it plenty sweet. I had never thought to serve oatmeal with yogurt before but it was delicious. Thank you for your creative recipes!

PUL Team - Jan. 26, 2022, 6:05 a.m.

Thanks a bunch for sharing your experience with the oatmeal, Thien!


Becky - Jan. 20, 2022, 11:16 p.m.

This has been breakfast every morning for the past week. It warms me up and is so tasty. I also love how good it is for me. Wholesome and delicious.

PUL Team - Jan. 21, 2022, 7:02 a.m.

We appreciate it so much, Becky, enjoy 😃


Esther - Jan. 20, 2022, 3:39 p.m.

First time using your new-ish website features (about time)! So easy to follow recipe and the oatmeal was DELICIOUS!

PUL Team - Jan. 21, 2022, 6:56 a.m.

Oh it's so appreciated, Esther, thank you!


Miosotiz R. - Jan. 17, 2022, 6:39 p.m.

First time making this recipe and it was DELISH. I was honestly surprised how well all the ingredients heightened flavor without compromising on nutrition. Great start to my month of only cooking from your recipes. THANK YOU!

PUL Team - Jan. 18, 2022, 12:41 a.m.

We're so honoured to hear about the commitment to PUL recipes, Miosotiz, thank you! The support and kind words mean so much 💚


Karla - Jan. 17, 2022, 2:44 p.m.

I’ve made this oatmeal a few times a week since you posted it! Perfect for the winter and with ingredients I pretty much always have on hand. Thank you for this new breakfast staple!

PUL Team - Jan. 18, 2022, 12:26 a.m.

Oh, Karla, it means so much - thank YOU!


Michaelah - Jan. 16, 2022, 3:44 a.m.

Wow! This is amazing oatmeal! I love the addition of the banana, blueberries and vanilla extract, it makes the flavour so much better! And the smells are so good 😄💕✨

PUL Team - Jan. 16, 2022, 5:35 a.m.

So happy it's being enjoyed, Michaelah!


Dee - Jan. 14, 2022, 6:14 a.m.

This is the best oatmeal ever. It’s so easy to make and so delicious. I was out of maple syrup so I added a few extra blueberry & topped it up with banana coins and raisins and it tasted appropriately sweet. Thank you PUL :)

PUL Team - Jan. 14, 2022, 5:21 p.m.

Mmm sounds delicious, Dee, thank you 😃


Annie Stover - Jan. 9, 2022, 5:52 p.m.

Wow! I have NEVER liked oatmeal in all my 45 years of life… until now. This recipe was unlike any oatmeal I have ever tasted. Excellent. I used walnuts on top as I was out of almonds. Also added only almond extract at the end. Delicious! Thank you for this recipe. I desperately need to add more plants and fiber to my diet for health reasons and breakfast was a real challenge. I will try the overnight oats next…

PUL Team - Jan. 10, 2022, 3:02 a.m.

Awe this is a massive compliment, Annie, thank you so much! We hope you enjoy the overnight oats 🤗


Gabrielle - Jan. 8, 2022, 8:30 p.m.

So yummy! Great with yogurt!


Mandie - Jan. 8, 2022, 5:40 p.m.

Delicious! My family and I really enjoyed this for breakfast this morning. :D Our toddler gobbled it right up.

PUL Team - Jan. 10, 2022, 1:18 a.m.

Wohoo! So glad to hear, Mandie 😊


Jeanette - Jan. 8, 2022, 3:02 a.m.

Thank you Sada!! For this wonderfully, tasteful, filling recipe! It definitely gave my boring oatmeal a spin on taste and color! I’m employed at the hospital and during my 10pm-6am shift, I’ll have some already prepared in a mason jar and I’m energized throughout the night! Can you please add more oatmeal ideas.

Thank you 🙏
Jeanette 🙂

PUL Team - Jan. 9, 2022, 7:14 a.m.

Oh, Jeanette, thank YOU for all that you do! We'll note down the suggestion. In the meantime, you can find all of our oatmeal recipes here: pickuplimes.com/recipe/?sb=oa… 😊


Charlotte - Jan. 5, 2022, 7:44 p.m.

I loved the colour and how fruity this oatmeal was. There were so many delicious blueberries!! Plus the tasty yogurt and nut butter complimented it so well. Will definitely be making this again soon!

PUL Team - Jan. 6, 2022, 5:27 a.m.

We appreciate the glowing review so much, Charlotte, thank you!


Laura P - Jan. 5, 2022, 3:43 p.m.

Oooooooh, now THIS is my new favourite oatmeal (for now). I was having your strawberry overnight oats for quite some time until I made this blue-blue blueberry oatmeal. Yummylicious! And the colour is so inviting. Thank you so much for creating delicious, affordable, and simple recipes. When I converted to a vegan 'lifestyle' I began with your recipes. Two years later and I continue to use your recipes (and I especially appreciate your website-- reader-friendly, ease of use without having to scroll through tons of pages to get to the actual recipe...luv luv luv). Cheers to you and family for 2022.

PUL Team - Jan. 6, 2022, 5:21 a.m.

We're smiling from ear to ear, Laura - thank you for taking the time to share the very kind words! We're so honoured the PUL content is being enjoyed and thank you for helping make our PUL community so special ✨


Robert - Jan. 5, 2022, 9:44 a.m.

I tastes very good, but it is a bit to rich for me.


Dan - Jan. 3, 2022, 9:46 p.m.

This is sooo good and so easy to make! It keeps me full for hours and my 18mo son loves picking off the toppings and eating them too. :)

I was dubious about the yogurt topping, but you were 100% right it’s amazing and to anyone reading this review you’ve got to try it. The taste combination is really what makes this dish.

PUL Team - Jan. 4, 2022, 5 p.m.

Aw we're so glad it was enjoyed by you and your little one, Dan!


Celina - Jan. 2, 2022, 6:42 p.m.

This is so delicious! The combination of flavors and the right amount of sweetness is the perfect way to start my day. I love the flavor combination of blueberries with almond butter it's divine 😍. This really reminded me of a blueberry muffin.

PUL Team - Jan. 2, 2022, 7:01 p.m.

Oh, Celina, so lovely to hear! Thank you sharing 🌻


Mathavi Sahadevan - Dec. 29, 2021, 4:32 p.m.

Loved the mix of textures and tastes. Never thought yogurt on oatmeal would be so delicious! Thank you for such a great recipe!

PUL Team - Dec. 30, 2021, 5:43 a.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, Mathavi!


Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - Dec. 28, 2021, 1:42 p.m.

Marvellous oatmeal: a warm filling hug packed with flavour😋 I agree completely with your comment in the video to use wild blueberries, it’s amazing (lucky to have Nordic bilberries that’s nutritious and more dense in colour🤩). Vanilla and blueberries are an interesting flavour combination. I loved this oatmeal with more banana and bilberries, cinnamon, chopped pecans, and Greek yoghurt for topping. I was a bit afraid that banana and maple syrup would be too sweet, but it worked very well👏🏼 The only disadvantage with these new oatmeal recipes is ground flaxseeds or chia seeds. It’s not necessary, as the porridge will thicken perfectly well on its own. That’s the whole purpose to have warm oatmeal. I’ve tried one of the oatmeals with chia seeds and it turned into a lump. Naturally, I had to add a lot more beverage to loosen 🤯. To summarise, it was a lovely breakfast!!

PUL Team - Dec. 28, 2021, 6:53 p.m.

Hi Louise, we appreciate the time you took to share your experience with the oatmeal so much! It's so valuable to help us improve. Aside from the thickening, we enjoy the boost of healthy fats that the ground seeds provide. Feel free to omit these ones if desired though! We've noted down the feedback for future content and are glad the oatmeal was still enjoyed 😃


Sarah - Dec. 27, 2021, 6:06 p.m.

I am always up for new oatmeal recipes. So when I saw this recipe, I had to give it a try. It was delicious! It was perfectly sweet and had amazing flavor. Plus, my kitchen smelled incredible. I used oat milk instead of almond since that is what I had on hand. I got through three-quarters of the dish before I was full. I couldn’t finish it. Thank you for the recipe.

PUL Team - Dec. 28, 2021, 2:21 a.m.

Hi Sarah! We're so thrilled the oatmeal was enjoyed. Thank you for the kind words 😃


Ashley - Dec. 26, 2021, 7:37 p.m.

Made this the same day I saw the recipe come online and my husband and I absolutely loved it! I normally do not care for oatmeal, but am always giving it a try. This recipe is going to be how I do it from now on. Plus, the color is so beautiful, it makes you excited to eat it :D

PS thank you for always including measurement by weight. I just sat my pot on my scale, poured in all the ingredients, and didn’t have to dirty a single measuring tool.

PUL Team - Dec. 26, 2021, 8:33 p.m.

Aw thank you for the glowing review, Ashley, it means so much! We're so glad the oatmeal and website feature are being enjoyed ✨


Adelaide - Dec. 24, 2021, 4:34 p.m.

This one looks absolutely delicious! Everything with blueberries in drives me crazy! Thank you for sharing

PUL Team - Dec. 25, 2021, 6:20 p.m.

We hope you enjoy it, Adelaide!
