    Honey, chopped walnuts & cinnamon (or pie spice) = tastes like baklava
    Banana & brown sugar & sometimes vanilla extract
    Blueberries/any berries & chopped almonds
    Some pudding!
    Pumpkin or apple butter is yummy, too!

    Not so fond of PB, eggs or yogurt in my oats, but someday I may just have to try them :-)

    flaxseed & toasted unsalted sunflower seeds!

    I did once try adding my favorite vanilla protein powder (which is ok mixed w/just water imnsho and a thing of joy in smoothies)...truly repulsive.

    Never again *shudders*

    fresh fruit! apples, banana, peach, strawberries. and then sometimes greek yogurt for extra protein. and nut butter or chopped nuts and it's a complete meal with everything you need. and chia seeds or flax seeds too!

    I usually just add a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter and a splash of milk. Definitely going to try to find some chia seeds at the grocery store this week to add to my oatmeal too!

    1/2 cup Oats, 1/2 cup Almond Milk, and 1 tbsp of Nutella. Tastes like a cookie! I eat it with my morning berry and kale smoothie.

    I do Scottish style porridge (oats and water) but then chuck in Greek or vanilla yoghurt & raisins. Bliss in a bowl.
  • Slivered almonds and dried cranberries or applesauce...YUM

    I've resolved with myself to just avoid oatmeal altogether. It tastes incredibly bland to me and to counteract that I get too carried away with toppings, turning my healthy bowl of oatmeal into a bowl of sugar, essentially.

    I've tried all these healthy tricks with fruit and such but it just doesn't take the blandness away for me. Rather than risk myself dumping brown sugar and butter in it, I just back away slowly! Don't want to put myself in a bad situation if I can help it! ;)

    I cook the one-minute version with raisins and add apple butter when it's done.

    Never thought I'd like oatmeal so much, but I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

    I like old fashioned oats, they don't take much longer to cook and I like the texture better. But occasionally I'll use quick oats, and I add the same stuff either way.

    Usually I add two tablespoons craisins, a sprinkling of cinnamon, and a stevia packet or two. Sometimes I'll replace the craisins with sliced banana, or chopped apple. If I use apple I put it in while I'm cooking the oatmeal so that it cooks too.

    On occasion I'll add EAS Lean 15 protein powder (vanilla flavor), but that isn't really so much for the taste as for the protein, I like the taste of the oatmeal better without it.
