How do you sweeten your oatmeal???

Hi all,

I started having oatmeal for breakfast, and I love it. However, I would prefer it a bit sweeter (I don't like it salty, so right now it's a bit bland), but I don't want to put too much sugar into it, and I try to keep away from artificial sweeteners like splenda. Any input?

Thanks in advance! :)

If you cook your own, you can cook it with 1/2 water 1/2 apple juice. You can also add a chopped apple during cooking.

Good idea pp! You can also add some cinnamon which is great for you! Or non sugar maple syrup.

When I cook my steel cut oatmeal, I put in some cinnamon and vanilla extract. When I eat it, I add some fresh blueberries (or even frozen in the bottom of the bowl, then put hot oatmeal on top) and a drizzle of honey. Yum!!

These are all great ideas! I like to add a teeny bit of brown sugar or a few sprinkles of cinnamon and nutmeg. I love oatmeal :)

How about a tiny amount of real maple syrup?

I actually don't put anything in mine. Just use plain old fashioned style oatmeal and cook it lightly so the oats have some "chew" left. They are mild and slightly nutty and really understated but they taste really good.

I used to put a little maple syrup in but discovered I don't really need it.

OK this may sound gross but I went with it and now I don't eat it any other way. The sweetness in red seedless grapes work perfectly. One grape per spoonful of oatmeal. Sooooo good, then add a bit of cinnamon.

I hate instant because it is not at all good for you. So at work I poor the slow cooked oatmeal into a foam cup and add enough hot water to cover the top of the oatmeal. Then just let it sit like you do with cup of noodles. It is done when all the water has been absorbed into the oatmeal. takes like 4 minutes, and does NOT work with steal cut.

My doctor stirs 1 Tbsp peanut butter and some bluberries into hers - haven't tried it yet.

I love it with REAL maple syrup, if you just put in 1 tsp it is only 35 - 40 cals, and so worth it.

Vanilla Spenda packets

One packet of vanilla splenda per 1/4 cup of oatmeal. And I cut up some apple and sprinkle a little cinnamon, its Delish!

it's delish with chopped dates and golden raisins - just the right sweetness without sugar, honey or syrup of any kind

Pp -- so funny, I just got agave syrup from Trader Joe's today... never had it before, so I figured I'd give it a try (probably tomorrow morning in my oatmeal)!

I chop up 1/4-1/2 apple, 1tsp applesauce, cinnamon, nutmeg & allspice. thats w/ 1/4 cup oatmeal. Mix it all together on the stove or in the microwave & I love it, I love the crunch of the apples & the taste of everything else. I only use nutmeg & allspice sparingly, but I love cinnamon, I also use water instead of milk for the oatmeal. Hope this helps.

Has anyone ever tried shredded carrot in their outmeal? I was just thinking about those yummy morning glory muffins with carrot, apple, walnuts, rasins, and coconut. I wonder if it would work in oatmeal form? I think I'll try it tomorrow and find out.

FYI: to the person who cooks their oatmeal in a foam cup--you may want to switch to paper--the foam adds a lot of carcinogens when heated up....(Not good to cook in any styrofoam containers!)


I add the following to my oatmeal:

Golden raisins & Dried Cranberries (You can buy these in a big bag from places like Sam's Club.)
A dash of vanilla
Some Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie Spice
A little milk

Very yummy....sometimes I will add agave nectar, but I tend to stay away from any types of sugar or sweeteners and let the natural fruit sugars flavor my oatmeal.

Every so often, I might get one of those tiny creamer containers of hazelnut coffeemate and add 1 of those in my oatmeal....

Wow! There is a lot of great input here! So positive!!

I ususally buy the instant oatmeal that has apples and cinnamon or raisins and spice. If I make regular oatmeal I will be sure to try some of these suggestions! Thank you all!

I always eat outmeal with fruit yoghurt, dried fruits and some nuts.
It won't be tasteless and not sweet as well.

With the Super Bowl and Sochi Olympics rapidly approaching, gangsters are seeing dollar signs Wholesale Jerseys 2016 .Sophisticated crime rings are developing pop-up e-marketplaces and sourcing cheap apparel from abroad, readying to profit millions of dollars selling counterfeit goods to unsuspecting deal hunters Stitched NFL Patch.More than $17 million worth of Super Bowl 2013 merchandise -- from fake jerseys, hats and jackets to tickets and other souvenirs -- was seized last year, according to U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement.

While the NFL has forced the shutdown of more than 2,500 websites offering counterfeit team merchandise
  • Movie Football
  • , the federal government arrested a dozen people ahead of this year's Super Bowl and the Sochi Organizing Committee pledged to implement a more effective response to the theft of licensed Olympic gear
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jersey
  • , the hill is steep.Without further consumer awareness, defeat is like a large-scale game of whack-a-mole, said David Sugden, an attorney specializing in grey markets at Call & Jensen.“Whenever there’s demand for anything --whether it is sports memorabilia or airplane parts -- you’re going to find there’s an effort from dishonest entrepreneurs to sell dishonest products,” he said.Brands may succeed in shutting down one
  • Atlanta Falcons Jersey
  • , but two more are always waiting in the wings.Traditional crime rings are attracted to the ease of importing apparel over, say, drugs and narcotics, and can quickly develop a website for the sale of illicit merchandise
  • Baltimore ravens Jersey
  • . The sites can also be written in such a way that the actual ring leaders are difficult to prosecute.

    And it's extremely lucrative
  • Indianapolis Colts Jersey
  • . Despite the fact that some of these counterfeited products are indeed far superior to their legitimate counterparts, thieves oftentimes price them in the same ballpark so as to maintain the ruse that the products being purchased are real
  • Buffalo Bills Jersey
  • .“It allows you to maintain the margins of legitimate goods, making it an extremely attractive business with a very low barrier to entry,” said Fred Feldman, chief marketing officer of brand protection firm MarkMonitor
  • Chicago Bears Jersey
  • , which works with the NFL.It’s also easier to fool a shopper online, whereas consumers tend to be more cautious of a random man selling t-shirts out of the back of his truck in the rear of the stadium parking lot.

    “Prior to Internet commerce
  • Cincinnati Bengals Jersey
  • , counterfeiters were often outside of stadiums or in flea markets or just on city streets,” said Sugden. “That kind of environment suggests to a reasonable consumer that this stuff probably is not authentic.”

    Of course, some shoppers looking for
  • Cleveland Browns Jersey
  • a deal are willing to sacrifice the quality. In fact, a MarkMonitor survey from 2012 found that these deal hunters are 20 times more likely to buy counterfeit than regular consumers.

    “Consumers have become more price sensitive and understand that one of the powers of the Internet is to compare and contrast prices to find the best deal NFL ,” Feldman said.

    With millions of revenue on the line, that has become a nightmare for brand owners.
