different ways to enjoy your oatmeal

Fit Food - The Oatmeal Zone
One of the best quick breakfasts you can prepare is a bowl of oatmeal. Not only is it economically priced and easy to make, it?s also very versatile. Oatmeal is becoming quite popular now that there are so many flavors and little dinosaurs made of sugar in the packets for picky kids. Instead of buying a box of ten packets for twice the price of a whole container, try some of these delicious and frugal ideas. These oatmeal variations pack more energy and flavor than pre-packaged oats without the 13 or more grams of refined sugar.

Apple Cinnamon: Add chopped apple or a few teaspoons of natural, unsweetened applesauce to oatmeal and cook. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Maple & Use sugar-free pancake syrup and a dash of cinnamon or artificial

Brown Sugar brown sugar replacement that is now available.

Fruit & Cream: Add a little milk or vanilla protein powder and a few strawberries or blueberries to oatmeal or mix in a teaspoon of sugar free preserves.

Maple Walnut: Add 1 tbsp sugar-free pancake syrup and a few chopped walnuts.

French Vanilla: Add 1 tsp vanilla, a splash of low-fat milk, and a packet of Splenda.

Cinnamon Raisin: Try using a few dashes of cinnamon, a splash of sugar-free maple syrup and a teaspoon of raisins instead of flavored packets.

Protein Boost: Stir in 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder.

Butter Pecan: Add a splash of imitation butter flavor, teaspoon of butter substitute or a few dashes of Butter Buds and a teaspoon of chopped pecans.

Other Grains: Try a multi-grain hot cereal, 5 or 7-grain hot cereal, or oat bran for a little change of pace. Any of the flavor varieties listed above work well with these complex carbohydrate hot cereals.

here's an oatmeal recipe that truly makes me look forward to eating oatmeal....cook your oatmeal like normal with water then add apple pie spice, a couple packs of splenda, butter spray, and the apple flavored wal mart crystal light knockoff.......tastes just like apple pie...mmmmmm

you can also use this same idea with egg whites and oatmeal....amounts will depend on your needs...but put your egg whites, oatmeal, splenda, apple flavored drink mix, apple pie spice, and blend it with a hand blender..then cook in a skillet and you have apple spice pancakes....throw some walden farms on it and....boo-yah

Oatmeal...yum

New here to the forum. I actually love oatmeal, and either put applesauce in it, or mix it w/ a can of fruit cocktail. Good stuff.

I use the TP premium flavor packs for my oats. Tastes pretty good. I also throw in a scoop of unflavored whey...

just add a banana to your oatmeal, cut it in pieces, and mash it. After that you add some vanilla low carb aroma and add some low fat milk. Put it in the microwave until it looks like porridge. Afterwards add some cinnamon.

easier method is to put oatmeal in a coffee grinder and then add water and drink it. Eating is overrated.

After nuking your oats about half way done, add egg whites to make it into a pudding consistency, topping with whey protein, sweetner of choice, fruit, and anything else you may consider good into oatmeal. I like crushed nuts and crushed graham crackers for taste.
