Blueberry cheesecake oats

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries  
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup  
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract  
  • ¼ cup smooth ricotta  
  • 1 small banana, sliced  
  • 1 tablespoon pepitas 
1. Cook hot oats following method in base recipe.  

2. Meanwhile, heat a medium non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add blueberries, maple syrup and vanilla. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, shaking pan occasionally until berries are soft and syrupy. 

3.  To serve, divide oats between 2 bowls. Top with ricotta and banana. Spoon over warm blueberry mixture. Sprinkle with pepitas.
