My husband and I eat oatmeal a few times each week. These ideas might entice my children to give oatmeal another try.

I make my oatmeal in the microwave and add a sliced small banana. The banana breaks down and stirring it makes the oatmeal sweet. Pat in Maine.

I like oatmeal, but cooked much longer, about 30 minutes, guess it is more mushy that way and less chewy.

I had left over apple cranberry crisp and our visiting granddaughter added some to her oatmeal and loved it. Now I try to keep the crisp made all the time just for adding to our oatmeal.

Any oatmeal you have is fine, no point in gourmet unless you need it to feel "fad like", I guess. I fix eggs on the side, 1 serving of oatmeal never makes me not feel hungry early, need some protein, too. Peanut butter is not enough...... Thank goodness oatmeal is cheap.

I make equal amounts of old fashioned oats and steel cut oats and mix them together with hemp hearts. It's got great texture, is very hardy, and "sticks" with ya for a long time. Keeps me from getting the mid-morning munchies. If I want something sweet, I either use powdered Nestle Quik or agave syrup.

I am really starting to appreciate having steel cut oats in the morning, now pretty well a habit. Usually with blueberries or a banana. One of the reasons is that it takes some time to cook (10-15 minutes). I contrast this with a bowl of cereal which is virtually instant to eat meaning I can down two or three bowls in a few minutes. If it takes me 15 minutes to cook another helping, I won't do it. I'll just stop there, and that's far better for me. Eating steel cut oats in the morning has enabled us to rid our cupboards of cold cereal which I think is helping with my weight loss.
