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.

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!
