Oatmeal "recipes"

I'm not a huge fan of plain oatmeal. Sometimes I mix in a little Splenda and skim milk and that tastes pretty good. How do you eat your oatmeal? I'm looking for variations to try. Thanks.

I really like the walnut raisin types of instant oatmeal, and it's even better if you put in raisins if you make it from scratch because they get plump and juicy. Lots of iron too. Add some brown sugar or maple syrup and it's delicious!

Make sure you get oatmeal that is "slow-cooked". That instant kind spikes up your insulin and has a high glycemic content.

Steel cut oatmeal is really good with cinnamon and raisins. It's better for you too.

There's a boxed kind, with the little packets, boxed as "weight control" oatmeal; I don't know exactly what's different about it except that it has more protein and fiber. The Cinnamon Sugar flavor is yummy! One packet with some fruit, and I'm full until lunchtime! And it's only 140 cals.

Otherwise, I like plain (uncooked) rolled oats mixed with low-carb yogurt (I like blueberry or vanilla) and a sliced banana, or some other fruits

So the oatmeal I eat comes in a huge package and I scoop out half a cup then add water and nuke it for 3min. That's the bad oatmeal???

I add a whole apple, 1 tbls raisins, dash of cinnamon, about 12 almonds and a sprinkle of spenda or sugar twin brown sugar to my oatmeal while it's cooking. I top it off with just a 1/4 or less of non-fat milk.

I find that this is very filling and I can make 2 breakfasts out of it.
