Homemade oatmeal...what do you like in yours?

So we have been trying to eat oatmeal every morning, but need ideas for what to add to make it appetizing. I don't want to add a bunch of sugar because that defeats the point of a healthy breakfast. So what do you like that is healthy and tasty?

  • Brown sugar, butter, and a little pumpkin pie spice. Our boys love it!

  • raisins or bananas or apples or brown sugar or crunched up graham crackers .... just depends on the day.... but in the winter I eat oatmeal and fruit daily

  • I like fruit (fresh or dried)... if i use dried fruit (like raisins, cranberries, etc) then I add them in while the water is coming to a boil so they get juicy (just my personal preference)...
    Its a great way to use up bananas that are a little over-ripe, mash them up and add them to the oatmeal... top with some chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon and it tastes like banana bread!
    Peaches are another favorite of mine :)

  • With plain oatmeal, I always add sugar free jelly.

  • Peanut butter & a bit of brown sugar is my favorite. I'll also top with frozen blueberries or strawberries, or dice an apple into it and add cinnamon before cooking it.

  • Is this a spinoff from the oatmeal or porn question from yesterday? ;)
    I like mine with bananas, raisins, or cinnamon, but I have to put a little bit of sugar in it. I just can't stand it otherwise.
