I am going through another phase. Similar to my put-creamy-sauces-on-everything phase and like my kabocha squash phase (which never has actually ended.)

This is a cheesecake phase. I want all the cheese cake things.  Everything needs to be made into a cheesecake thing.   It all started with the french toast.  Now it has even seeped into my life every.single.day by ninjaing it’s sneaky little self into my morning bowl of oatmeal.

But, you know what, I am totally, extremely, super duper, inexplicably okay with that.   (Playing that game I told you guys about with myself again)

I’m usually a creature of habit, and eat oatmeal with apples, stevia, cinnamon and ginger.  It’s warm  and inviting and makes me feel like I started my day off with a healthy, oatmeal hug. But, today I was feeling fancy and decided to jazz it up with some blueberries.  But, then I saw some cream cheese in my fridge that screamed at me “MAKE ME INTO CHEESESCAKE”  So, I did what any normal person who hears food talk does, and listened.

The result? Thick, warm oatmeal laced with ribbons of sweet, creamy cheesecake. When you pair this with the whole fresh, blueberry yum factor, it make you feel like you’re eating something naughty. But, guess what? It’s cheesecake that you can eat every day and feel all healthy and stuff.

What I’m really trying to say is: move over apples and cinnamon, you’ve been replaced.

    Okay this sounds way too good to be healthy :) So would this be part of a low cal diet or high protein low carb? what kind of diet can I be on and eat this good stuff! lol

      Haha, well it is healthy girlfriend! I don’t follow any specific “diet” to be honest. I believe in eating foods in the whole and natural state and eating treats in moderation. This oatmeal is completely natural and a good source of healthy carbs to keep you feeling fuller longer and to give you energy through the day. If you eat whole foods and listen to when your body is hungry and full, you do not have to be on a specific “diet!” and you can enjoy treats every so often :)

    Made this for breakfast today and OMG…SO GOOD! I usually don’t experiment with breakfast dishes but this has inspired me. Thank you for this!!

    Just wondering if it even needs sweetener of any kind because of the blueberries. I make oatmeal with hot milk, cinnamon and raisins and it doesn’t require sugar because of the raisins. I’m thinking of giving this a try.

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Personally, I think it does. But really it’s totally a matter of preference, and I like things a little sweeter :) I hope you like it!

    The first step says “2 tablespoons and sweetener of choice” but it doesn’t say 2 tablespoons of what? 2 tablespoons of stevia would ruin it.

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Oh, that was a major typo on my part, thanks for pointing it out! Just use whatever sweetener to taste…you’re right 2 tbsp of Stevia would be AWFUL. I just use a pinch :)

    This was absolutely delicious! I used steel cut oatmeal an added my frozen blueberries in while cooking. I can see myself making this again and again. Thank you!
