Thank you! I'll have to try one of these tomorrow morning.

The other day I started making oatmeal and all I had were steel cut oats and he really doesn't like those but I tried. I added cinnamon, cut up an apple, and vanilla. Tasted it and didn't think he would like it so I added some brown sugar to see if that would sweeten it up a bit, he really didn't like that. I'll eat it, it was pretty good, but I don't normally do the sugar... Oh well, back to the drawing board.

If I come across something stellar I'll share too!

I cook the 1/4 c. regular oats, when done add 1/2 c. plain yogurt, 2 T ground flax seed, sometimes diced apples, blueberries, or strawberries, a teaspoon of honey. It's yummy to me, but then I have never done instant oatmeal.

Can you make slow-cook oatmeal (really doesn't take that long- maybe 10 minutes, tops), and stir in either dried and chopped apple pieces (which is what is in instant), or actual diced apple? I do the latter, dicing it small and adding it once the oatmeal has returned to a boil after I've stirred the dry in so that it cooks enough and is not crunchy when served.

I stir in cinnamon, salt, a little vanilla, and Splenda to taste (yes, I know it's chemicals. It's about my only vice!), just before serving. Maybe he'll like it! Only one way to find out, huh?

I would also be interested in this. I won't buy the instant oatmeal with flavorings. I need to look up the overnight oatmeal.

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

I'm looking for oatmeal recipes. My hubby likes the instant oatmeal with "apples" and I would like to find something to replace this nutrient deficient breakfast.

As I went to look at Spark Recipes, I thought I would ask you guys.

Thanks for the input!
