I add things like fruit, cinnamon, nuts, soy milk, pure maple syrup. I heard some people cook it overnight in a crock pot and it supposed to come out creamier. I like my cereal very grainy.

I don't really like sweet oatmeal, so I rarely make it for breakfast. However, I just found a suggestion on this website to make savory oatmeal. Cook the oats then add pepper, a bit of cheese, an egg and scallions. Tried it and loved it!

I have made the steel cut oats and don't really like the texture of them. is there something i can do while cooking them to make them more like oatmeal or are they just something i will get used to as time goes on?
I add walnuts or pecans and dried fruit and top with almond milk, but I saw that some people scramble an egg with them and/or add bacon,diced ham etc. I have not tried the savory oats, but they sound good.
I usually have fruit and sometimes protein powder as well if I've had a mean strength workout the day before to help repair. Last night I baked some apples with cinnamon, brown sugar and a little butter for dessert and I cut up a leftover apple and put it in my oats - sooo good

I'm not a fan of sweet flavors for breakfast (usually). I make mine with a little cheese, salt and pepper. Maybe a dash of hot sauce. Kind of a healthier take on cheese grits.

I love to cook my steel cut oats with milk instead of water, and throw in a bunch of chopped, fresh strawberries...cook the berries along with the oatmeal. It becomes a big, creamy bowl of strawberries and cream yumminess!

I just made a baked version with steel-cut oats and fresh blueberries. It made enough that I was able to bring it to work for a few days. I have also read that you can make it with apples and cinnamon or with pumpkin.
