This delicious clean eating lemon blueberry oatmeal makes for a high fiber start to your day!

I love a good bowl of morning oatmeal. Few things start the day off better for me. There’s something about holding that warm bowl between my hands and breathing in the nutty, earthy yet sweet aroma of a breakfast that is just waiting to nourish my body from head to toe.

I love this combination of lemon and blueberries too. For me, it’s a classic combination. I’m not sure why, but the two just naturally go together.

And don’t get freaked out by the egg whites either. All they do is add some protein to the mix. You can’t taste them, and if you mix them in fast enough, you won’t see them either. You don’t HAVE to add them, but it’s an easy way to add some protein to a higher carb breakfast. It just gives you some balance.

Give it a try!

    Tiffany–lemon and blueberry is EASILY one of my favorite flavor combination. If I bake it, I like to add egg whites and a little Greek yogurt. If I cook it on the stove top I just enjoy the oats, blueberries, lemon, and sometimes a splash of milk.

      Katrina – You know, I really need to try baking my oatmeal. I did it once and loved it, but for some reason haven’t done it since. Thanks for the reminder!

      1. Katrina Burnside says:

        I love it baked as well, but I often don’t have the patience to wait on it! lol

      Sarah – I agree. They are just a natural flavor combination!

    I made this in the crockpot overnight (added eggs and blueberries this morning)… I added flaxseed and almonds to mine this morning as well, because I put those in everything. This recipe was really good, the lemon and blueberry were refreshing. I used blue agave as my sweetener. Also I made it 4 servings instead of 2. Thanks for all your recipes! They don’t all have to be my favorites, you do a really great job. If I were to rate it I would give it 4/5.. Fresh and different for sure.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it.

  9. Can these oatmeal recipes made with eggs be cooked a head of time and eaten all week?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      I wouldn’t keep them longer than 3 days. But you can certainly leave the egg out and get your protein another way.

  10. I have everything but the lemon, but I do have lime! I want to try this recipe, but should I try it with the lime, or just leave the lime out?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Judy – Personally, I love blueberries and lime together. If it were me, I’d try it.
