Hello everyone!

I want to give you an oatmeal idea. I bought a tiny crockpot works great for overnight oatmeal! Use regular minute oats or the steal cut oats. I have added (not all together) apple, cranberries,raisins, brown sugar, pancake syrup, and even vanilla or almond flavoring.
I searched the web under crockpot oatmeal for recipes.
I hope this gives everyone some ideas..
ummmm..sounds good, think I will go and get the crockpot ready for morning breakfast..

Enjoy!

Thanks for the great ideas! I'll try some of these variations.

Have you tried mixing in cooked apples and cinnamon? Kind of like apple pie...

Are you on Pinterest? There are tons of recipes there, some of the oatmeal ones I've pinned (but not tried yet) you use the old fashioned oats and mix in whatever, then soak in fridge overnight...like I said I havne't tried this yet so have no idea how it tastes.

Usually I let them soak in water overnight and add some grated law-fat cheese instead of any sweetener. When I feel like having something sweet instead of a bit salty I add to the oats raisins or several dried plums and then soak them. emoticon emoticon emoticon

You can try all natural sweetners like rapadura/organic whole cane sugar, coconut sugar, maple suger, maple syrup, sorghum, molasses, stevia, honey and agave necture!

All of these are better than the processed white cane sugar!

Check their nutritional facts and choose according to your prference!

The race to fitness is unending for when you reach your goals, it becomes a race to stay ahead of the temptations that seek to pull back to where you came from!

I usually eat mine plain but sometimes I put a teaspoon of butter in it and stir it up.

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?
