What do you put in your oatmeal?

This is a poll. I think most people go with something like cream or honey, but some folks get really creative.

    Usually milk and protein powder, sometimes with PB2. Sometimes cinnamon or fruit (berries, peaches, etc.).

    Skim milk and sugar. I have a low calorie max so I can't afford to be very creative.

    Egg, cinnamon, peanut butter, brown sugar are my usual with some banana on top.

    Some days I add protein powder or collagen powder.

    Cinnamon and Splenda. I use my Saigon cinnamon since it is best in things that do not get baked

    A little maple syrup goes a long way, and usually blueberries and strawberries or raspberries.

    I tried a savoury oatmeal bowl once and my brain could not compute.

    Raisins (or dried cranberries), cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, and milk. That time with the turmeric was an accident. So was the time with the citric acid. :s

    peanut butter & jelly/jam, always. It's really the only way I like oatmeal.

    Steel-cut oatmeal, diced dried apricots cooked in the oatmeal to soften them, chopped walnuts and a dash or two of cinnamon at the end. I like to sweeten it with sugar-free maple-flavored syrup, or stevia - and a splash of cream to add richness

    For breakfast: banana, blueberries, honey, cinammon, chia seeds and unsweetened cacao powder. Everytime I have this for breakfast, it keeps me full for many hours and I dont crave carbs at all.
    Breakfast no2: baked oatmeal with apples and cinammon, topped with greek yoghurt and pomegranate seeds.
    Lunch: diced turkey and gouda slices with an egg, tomatoea and baby spinach.
