I'm trying to eat oatmeal for at least two breakfasts per week, and would love some ideas on how to 'jazz it up' without adding too many calories or too much sugar. I've gotten where I kind of like some other 'used to hate 'em' foods, such as 100% whole wheat breads and fat-free milk, but I just haven't been able to like oatmeal (although I love grits and cold cereals).
Right now, I've managed to come up with a version that I can semi-like (meaning that it tastes okay, but I don't look forward to having it for breakfast!). I fix the old-fashioned oats (I prefer the steel-cut, but don't usually have time for those to cook), using fat-free milk instead of water. I add a little cinnamon at the end of cooking. I add some type of fruit, and I've found that thawed frozen peaches cut into little pieces taste best to me. I finally add just about a teaspoon of flavored 'coffee cream' (like International Delights French Vanilla) to richen it up a little.
How do some of you fix your oatmeal?
