Venzi’s Notes

This is another go-to recipe for oatmeal. I love the bursts of fresh flavor the blueberries bring as well as the addition of cardamom. To be honest, I almost always add cardamom to my oatmeal or overnight oats, no matter which kind I make! This recipe would also be great with the addition of some ripe and juicy, diced bosc pear, some toasted coconut, or a spoon full of creamy coconut milk.
