Oatmeal - can I make it taste better?

I just had oatmeal for the first time. I wanted to increase my milk supply and use it for weight loss. I hate it. I used milk. Is there any way to make it taste better ? Something else I can add ?

  • When I make oatmeal I do not use water, I use mild. I also use brown sugar, vanilla, raisins/dried apple slices/dried banana slices/nuts....

  • I'm with you! Once its cooked I use drops of I Can't Believe Its Not Butter, sprinkle expensive yummy cinnamon on it, and sprinkle at little Splenda. I know where's the oatmeal? I use this on South Beach and its all ok. Good luck!

  • We have it all the time. Use brown sugar and cinnamon instead of plain sugar. Add a little milk on top. I also add things like raisins, or peaches, or apple sauce with cinnamon etc.
