I love chopped pecans in oatmeal! Also, I like to add a pat of butter and some jelly. Then it's like toast is a bowl! Sometimes, I'll use peanut butter instead of regular butter. Peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a bowl. lol
I have also found that cooking the oatmeal with milk (either dairy milk or non-dairy subs) makes it much better and creamier, plus adds protein.
For sweetener I use liquid stevia, so that just a few drops is good for a whole serving without making it taste funny. I also like to add chopped pecans and craisens to mine as well. Dried fruit goes well in oatmeal, especially if you cook it with the oats.

I add chopped apricots and use raw sugar to add flavor. A small amount of raw sugar seems to add big flavor. I sometimes add in chopped nuts and my daughter likes flaked coconut in hers.

When adding flavour to oatmeal, I usually focus on nutrition and use foods which add protein, fibre or healthy fat
If you like using peanut butter. try also cooking banana slices with the oatmeal. Yummy!
And if you want the oatmeal extra creamy, stir in a couple of Tb of low-fat greek yoghurt. It's a good source of protein and calcium :)

How in the world do you make oatmeal good!? I love oatmeal but like the packages of fruit flavored and what not... but I bought a big ol' thing of just old fashioned whole oats, it was cheaper and I am assuming better then the little flavored packets...
This morning I added banana in it and I just can't do banana. I am super sensitive / allergic to it plan, so I thought in oatmeal it would be okay... but it isn't, it made me so sick. I also added a couple packets of sugar (splenda like)...
But it was just, uuugggh, BLAH!
so what do you all do/use/add?
