  • Ideas for Oatmeal: making oatmeal taste better

    .....as posted @ MassMonsters:

    By Stella Juarez

    One of the best quick breakfasts you can prepare is a bowl of oatmeal, especially if you are active and health conscious. Oatmeal is rich in complex, energy-sustaining carbohydrates, low in fat and high in fiber. What's more it is economically priced and easy to make!

    Oatmeal is becoming so mainstream that it's available in disposable heat and serve containers and many flavors, including one with little sugar dinosaurs intended for picky kids. Did you ever notice while you were paying four times the price of a container of plain oats for a 10 packet box of flavored oatmeal that you were also buying 13 grams of sugar and less than an adult female serving in every packet?

    Try some of these delicious and frugal oatmeal variations that pack the same energy and flavor without the high price point and added sugar of flavored oatmeal packets.

    Ideas For Oatmeal

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

    Maple & Brown Sugar Use sugar-free pancake syrup and a dash of cinnamon or artificial brown sugar replacement by Sugar Twin that is now available.

    Fruit & Cream: Add a little milk or vanilla protein powder and a few strawberries, blueberries, peaches, or 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 artificial sweetener.

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

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

    Butter Pecan: Add a splash of imitation butter flavor, teaspoon of Promise fat-free butter replacement 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, oat bran, or get even fancier and splurge on some imported McCann Steel Cut Oatmeal for a little change of pace when you are bored with regular oatmeal. Any of the flavor varieties listed above work well with these complex carbohydrate hot cereals.

        I mix 1/2 cup oatmeal in with several of my protein shakes. It might not taste the best, but I seem to have learned to eat for nutritional value rather then taste.

            mixed in with sweet potatos is good too, like 1 cup cooked oatmeal w/ 4oz cooked sweet potato instead of 2 cups oatmeal.

                Mix the following in a blender until its a thick liquid.

                1 cup oatmeal
                10 egg whites
                1 banana
                cinnamon and Equal to taste

                Use this mixture to cook pancakes in non-stick frypan. You can add whey protein if you want although it may them a bit dryer, you can also adjust the amounts to suit your caloric intake.

                I live on these things for breakfast, esp when dieting as they actually taste good. They are also a perfect take-anywhere protein and carb meal that you can eat on the go.

                Simple quick and tasty.

                        Great ideas!

                        I just want my oatmeal to taste like the instant stuff. I get so frustrated when making the real stuff. I always make it too sweet. I'm gonna try your ideas. Even the pancake recipe.

                          1 cup of oatmeal
                          2 scoops strawberry whey
                          1 pack of splenda


                          Not to bad. I have also been working on some hi pro, low sugar oatmeal cookies. I will let you know when I get one that I can eat on a regular basis.
