With blackberries coming into season, what better way to bridge cool and warm weather with a comforting and fruity breakfast of Blackberry Cardamom Oatmeal.

Sometimes I feel the need to explore more with spices and herbs that I rarely use. In this case, I was thinking of what to make for breakfast. I knew that I wanted berries in it because this month’s theme for the bloghop is berries, but that seemed a little boring. Really, when you hear the word oatmeal, it’s not usually awe-inspiring; but, it does remind you of comforting moments when you start your day off with a warm, satiating breakfast.

Back to this morning’s oatmeal, I thought about another one or two ingredients I could throw in there that would complement the tart berries and the slight hint of maple syrup.

Searching around my spice cabinet, I was contemplating sprinkling cinnamon in there, but that’s a pretty standard oatmeal ingredient, I feel. What other spices lend themselves to sweet dishes? Another look-through and my eyes set their gaze upon a near-full bottle of cardamom, maybe I’d found something that could work?

Let me tell you, this most definitely worked! I was a little shy with adding the spice, but after a few pinches it was perfect. It has been a while since I’ve had a fruity oatmeal, and it was just so good. So good that I ended up texting my mom telling her that she’d love this Blackberry Cardamom Oatmeal. Now, it looks like I’m kind of obligated to make it for her. 😉

Do you think subbing frozen berries would be fine? Thanks!

How did I miss this oatmeal recipe?!?! I love oatmeal for breakfast and recently discovered that I do like blackberries after years of thinking I didn't. Cardamom is one of my favorite spices, it reminds me of childhood. I recently made some cookies with cardamom and they were fabulous!

I have oatmeal for breakfast every day but starting to get bored of it. Thank you for a fresh new idea! There are no blackberries in Korea but I will try it with raspberries. Love this blog! Lots of inspiration all the time.
