If you eat oatmeal, how do you like it?

I always add butter and something to sweeten it, usually sugar for the kids and Splenda for me. If I'm trying to get fancy I'll add blueberries or dried cranberries and sliced almonds.

I've been told its weird to add butter, but that's how I've always made it and can't imagine it any other way.

  • I usually put steel cut in the crock pot the night before with some dried cranberries, and diced pecans, and apples. By morning it is just right, and the apples make it sweet enough that you dont need any sugar. And NO butter... that makes me gag.

  • I mostly eat it plain or with sliced bananas, maybe some walnuts if I'm in the mood. When I get it from Jamba Juice I like that they put brown sugar in it but never mix anything in it on my own.
