Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. - CHIEF TECUMSEH ~ 4/17/18 Report

My favorite oatmeal is half cup old fashioned oatmeal, one cup almond milk, 1 T chia seeds, dash of cinnamon stirred in tall glass and left overnight in the frig. In the morning in summer slice a banana and it becomes a cool glass of breakfast goodness. Report
Just don't like oatmeal, and I have made it tons of ways. I have tried steel cut hoping a different texture would help...not so much. In my quest to make oatmeal more appealing, I will try some of these recipes. Why eat it since I hate it? Oatmeal is such a heart healthy, cholesterol lowering giant! Report
I eat oatmeal almost every morning. Will definitely have to gi e some of theseca try. Report
I have tried the banana and oatmeal recipe and it is good, I thought it would be too sweet , though , it was not. It made a nice consistency to the oatmeal as well.. Report
I can't wait to try some of these! Report

I use the Quaker large flake oatmeal, which has to be cooked for 20 - 25 minutes. I cook it according to the package directions along with a cinnamon stick, a few sprinkles of nutmeg & a few pinches of chai seeds. Once it's cooked, I separate it into 1/2 cup portions in a container & re-heat it for breakfast the next day with 1/2 cup PC Organics Low Fat soy Beverage. I then sprinkle a few shakes of ground cinnamon in. This is 3 points plus for Weight Watchers 360 (1/2 cup oatmeal is 2 points & 1/2 cup of this type of soy milk is 1 point). It is filling, healthy & tastes good. Report

I made the apple cinnamon slow cooker for my book club when I was to bring a healthy snack. I told them they were guinea pigs because I had never had it. They loved it. I make it on the weekend and my husband takes it to work with him, too. Yummmmm. Report

I use 1/2 cup old fashioned oats, 1 cup 1% milk, sometimes add in 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, or 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree, sliced banana. After cooking, I stir in 2 TBSP ground flax meal, or 1 TBSP almond butter or peanut butter. Making the oatmeal with milk instead of water makes it creamier, and more filling because of the protein in the milk. Report

I also like 1/3 cup oatmeal and 2/3 cup skim milk, with a little brown sugar in a cup to eat like cold cereal. My grandma started me on that when I was little. I sometimes add frozen mixed fruit, chopped apples, banana, nut meats, or anything else to add variety. I could take this to work and put it a coffee cup to eat. Powdered milk works well too. When I had cancer and taking chemo, I needed protein. I couldn't cook without getting sick. So this was a great way to get what I needed. I increased the powdered milk for added protein. Report
Baked Gingerbread Oatmea. Based on the reviews I will add a TB of brown sugar. Report
Oatmeal creme brulee is a must try this weekend. Report
The apple cinnamon sounds like one I would like to try. I always add to my oatmeal. Normally I have walnuts or sunflower seeds, yogurt, fruit, almond milk and sometimes a teaspoon of peanut butter or flax seed. Don't need any sugar! Thanks for sharing the recipes. My go to breakfast!!! Report
Creme brle looks incredible! I'm excited to try it this weekend Report
I grew up with oatmeal the way my mom makes it: rolled oats (never quick/instant) cooked with walnuts and plenty of cinnamon then drizzled with grade B maple syrup and, more recently, coconut milk. There is a tropical version of it on my blog: thevegankitchenblog.blogspot.com/20

Love to cook old fashioned oatmeal with cinnamon and stir in frozen blueberries just before eating! (they thaw real fast in the hot oatmeal!) I top with a sprinkle of brown sugar! Report

I always bought those prepackaged oatmeals, so I wanted to try to make my own... save money and be healthier! Thanks so much! I'm eating the peanut butter and Banana one right now... yummy!!! Report
I eat the Irish steelcut oatmeal. Cook a double batch, then warm in the microwave each day. My favorite way to eat is a cup of oatmeal with a pat of butter, tsp of honey (or more, to taste), cinnamon and a splash of vanilla. I have not done it before, but next time I am going to measure out serving size, put in plastic snack bags and freeze. Then I can eat as I want. I don't like to eat the same thing every day, and don't want it to go bad on me. Report
I LOVE the pumpkin oatmeal recipe I found here. I believe it makes much more than the number of servings stated on it, though -

I love my oatmeal....its a mixture of oatmeal, barley, bulgar, millet,quinoa, rye and 1 Tbsp of cinnamon all put into a slow cooker (with 2.5x the water), cooked overnight making it ready first thing in the morning!! Super high in protein! Report

I've started to add dark cocoa to my oatmeal and cut up a banana into it after it's cooked. Yum! Report
I've recently jumped on the cold oatmeal bandwagon myself. I love oatmeal in any form though. To make the cold oats I use 1/2 cup quick oats, 1 6oz container of yogurt (usually french vanilla), 1/4 c Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk, a dash of cocoa powder and a dash of cinnamon. Stir it all up and put in the fridge. The next morning it's ready to go. Or make it in a snap lid container and you can grab it and take it to work with you.

I also like peanut butter in hot oatmeal. Bananas. Any kind of fruit. Cocoa.

I haven't tried savory oats but that's on my list. Report
this is my absolute favorite way to eat oatmeal: I cook old fashioned oats on medium with non-fat milk, then stir in a tablespoon of chunky peanut butter, two teaspoons of sweetener, and sprinkle a teaspoon of miniature chocolate chips. Not only is it good, it keeps me full until lunch. Report

I want to try the peanut butter and banana and pumpkin. Report
I love oatmeal, in just about any form. I don't put anything but milk on my porridge, sometimes fruit. Report
I'm going to try the baked oatmeal. I've never done it that way, but I love oatmeal and it sounds good. Report
I have tried eating oatmeal over and over and made many different ways. I just don't like the stuff and doubt if I ever will. Some of these recipes sound so good though......... Report
I always make my oatmeal with 1% milk, instead of water. It makes it so rich and creamy. I do it in the microwave so it's quick and easy, one bowl at a time. I add a banana, cut into small pieces, during the last 30 seconds of cooking. Brings out the sweetness of the banana---no need for sugar at all! Report

i will try coach Deans oatmeal
i usually add banana, raisins and cinammon to my oatmeal and make it with milk and not water. Never heard of using water before.

why all that sugar?? Report

My favorite way to eat oatmeal is Hot and Fruity,but I like it plain too. Report
I have old fashioned oatmeal, sprinkled with cinammon and ground flaxseed. I also add blueberries and sometimes pomegranate. Yummy! Report

If I start the day on a sweet note, I crave sugar all day. So I prefer my oatmeal savory: a pinch of smoked shredded cheese, a handful of scallions, and if I've done strength training that day, a poached egg. Report
I use half skim milk, half water in my Oatmeal and recently, I have started to add just a little, maybe 1/2 tablespoon, of Strawberry Brummel and Brown yogurt spread. It gives it a different taste that is oh, so good. Enjoy Report

I like my oatmeal plain, or sometimes with some raisins mixed in during the last minute or two of cooking.

Love my oatmeal. Plain oatmeal, oatmeal with fruit, oatmeal bars. Don't know how I could get by without it plus it is a cheap meal. Report
