    My "go-to" is adding a teeny bit of milk and bananas haha, I know so boring!
  • It's not what I put in my oatmeal, it's what I put my oatmeal in.
    I make a breakfast smoothie with ½ cup light vanilla soy milk, ⅓ cup powdered milk, ¼ cup dry minute oats, ½-1 cup frozen fruit & a small banana.
    About 300 calories that can last me till lunch.

    Wow, so many ideas. I might have to try each one to see what they are like. Here is my concoction. Steel cut oats, blueberries, maple syrup, greek yogurt, ground flaxseed.

    Concoction #2. Oatmeal, apples, cinnamon, flaxseed and maple syrup.

    Concoction #3. Oatmeal, cinnamon, brown sugar, cottage cheese, almond slivers.

    Concoction #4. Oatmeal, bran, wheat germ, apples, cinnamon, maple syrup. I tried flaxseed in this one and it does not taste good at all.

    If I don't put greek yogurt in I will add almond milk. Dark Chocolate almond milk is delicious!

    Apple Pie Steel Cut Oats in the crockpot..

    1 Cup of steel cut oats
    1 C of unsweetened almond milk plus 3 C of water
    2 tsp of cinnamon
    1 apple diced
    2 Tbs of chai seeds
    1/4 C of raisins
    Stevia to taste.

    Layer all of the ingredients in the crockpot, pour the milk and water over the top and cook on low for 7 hours. Its absolutely delicious! Sometimes I add a scoop of protein powder to boost the protein.

    It makes 5 servings.

    So many good ideas here. I do have oatmeal EVERY morning. I made the change from skim milk to unsweetened almond milk a few months ago: Love it! Until the past week, I would also have a serving of fruit but I have eliminated that at breakfast. I found that in general I was not hitting my protein macro and was over on "sugars", so (after reading a tip on a MFP post) I have begun using protein powder stirred into the hot oatmeal. I'm liking it.

    I just finished my oatmeal. :) I typically make cinnamon-raisin steel cut oatmeal. Every Sunday night I'll boil some water, put 1 cup of dry steel cut oats in a mason jar, add about 3 cups water and a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Leave overnight.

    The next morning they are soft and ready to be eaten and I have enough for 4 meals for the rest of the week (leave the mason jar in the fridge at this point).

    I take some of the cooked oats and a little of the water and put it in the microwave for a short time to reheat. Add raisins, a dash of xylitol and a sprinkle of grounded flax and chia seeds. I like making them with berries, natural yogurt and vanilla rice milk sometimes as well.

    So good and keeps me full for hours!

    Steel cut oatmeal is the way to go. It is so much heartier. It takes a long time to make, but I usually just cook up enough for the whole week on Sunday and store it in the fridge. I usually add 1/2 cup of blueberries to it. 185 calories in all and keeps me full until lunch.

    I make quick cook steel cuts (which I love!!) with 2/3 cup milk, pinch of salt and some cinnamon - micro 5 minutes @ 50% power then add 16 all natural chocolate chips. It IS delicious!
