My usual topping for oatmeal and boxed cereal consists of 2 tablespoons each of chopped walnuts, chopped dates, chopped almonds, and wheat germ to which I add a small amount of honey (dates are sweet so it does not take much) and a splash of milk. Those toppings add to the fiber, protein and vitamins And, no, I do not eat that much; that is two meals. Sometimes I use herbs and spices to make oatmeal or omelets, etc. by smelling the likely choices and then using what appeals to me best at the time. Try adding so jam or compote just remember that you should not need as much or any sweetener. One of my favorites is apricot. Tomorrow I am going to try canned pineapple chunks in their own juice that have been slightly blended. I know that canned pineapple comes in pieces smaller pieces, but I find that those smaller pieces have more of the tougher parts of a pineapple in with them.
Just milk, and a little sugar.
Brown sugar and a bit of milk.
I top my oatmeal with cottage cheese, cocoa powder and some splenda. Yummie
A tablespoon of natural peanut butter.
You need an "All of the above" to check and then and area to add more as well, your pole is way to limited.
I never ate oatmeal until I arrived in America. We ate porridge with fat-free milk, (we had our own dairy). Since I cannot find the makings for porridge I now enjoy oatmeal with milk.
I add a little bit of Smart Balance to my steel cut oats
Raisins and pecans
extra virgin coconut oil and coarse sea salt- flavoeful, crunch and longlasting energy!
Bananas with brown sugar. Healthy and it tastes like Bananas Foster!
Salt - I have low blood pressure and it's a tasty way to get some extra salt. And I don't feel good when I eat sweet foods in the morning.
I like to vary my combinations, but my favorite is diced apples, walnuts, honey, ground flaxseed, and a splash of almond or coconut milk.
Almond silk, bananas and maple syrup.
I add blueberries and peanut butter. It's delicious, I look forward to it every morning.
Ever tried crisply cooked "bacon" and maple syrup? Delish!! If your super daring, try real bacon!
I like it with skim milk, vanilla extract, and strawberry jam.
I like strawberries, blueberries, walnuts and vermont Maple Syrup
Half a teaspoon golden syrup, very British
I add a heaped tespoon of wheatgerm and one of oatbran to regular oats and soak overnight. When it's cooked I spread the top with mashed banana, honey and cinnamon.
NYS Maple Cream.
I add flax meal, dried cherries and cinnamon. Agave nectar or honey is a great sweetener. Cocoa powder is also a good addition.
Not instant, I add a a slice of pear a slice of apple some banana pieces some walnuts and raisins. At times when I am not able to finish the portion I add the plain oatmeal with some millet and ragi flour to make a dough then roll it as a flat bread ( Bhakri called in India ) roast it and it's the best wholesome food.
Butter, raisins, sugar, cinnamon,and milk.
I like to add fresh berries, raisins, and cinnamon.
Fresh blueberries and real maple syrup
Mashed banana and walnuts. Yum.
I like to add raisins; light brown sugar and cinnamon with a teaspoon of low fat butter or low fat margarine.
I eat this every morning and it is my favorite meal of the day: 1/2 cup of oatmeal with 1 tablespoon of roasted ground flax seed, sprinkle of cinnamon, and after it is done add 1/2 a splenda packet and 1 tablespoon of all natural peanut butter and slice a banana for the top, It is so yummy!
Cinnamon and Honey is the best
For a healthier option I add banana and honey (sometimes healthy and something sweet)
My mum still goes for the "best" and has brown sugar (not so healthy!)
DATES & PECANS
I cook my oatmeal one serving at a time in the microwave. I only use regular, not instant oats. When done, I add about a tablespoon of brown sugar and about a tablespoon or margarine. I mix them through thoroughly. Then sometimes add a little bit of canned fruit. If I want to add applesauce, I don't add the brown sugar nor the margarine; there's enough sweetness and fat in the sauce.
Natural Peanut butter, or Protein powder, flax seeds and a homemade no sugar added berry compote! Yummmy I may make some for breakfast Tomorrow!
I use a no fat granola that I make on top of my oatmeal! YUMMY!!!
Dried bluberries added when the oatmeal is almost done
I use fruit yogurt. Any fruit type yogurt adds flavor and is nutricious.
Try it with Applesauce you will love it and don't forget a teaspoon of Cinnamon. Rye toast is also very good.
I add chopped apricots & chopped walnuts while cooking my oatmeal. When ready I add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon maple syrup or stevia to taste.
a little brown sugar and some milk
Any dried fruit, one tbs wheat germ, one tbs flax seed meal and one tbs honey - do not use milk or cream
Low/non fat flavored yoghourt...love it!
Yogurt, definitely. then nuts, granola, and/or fruit sometimes

brown sugar and golden raisins
Hazlenut creamer sugar free
Chopped dates, walnuts and Agave.....wonderful
