OOatmealOatmeal Toppings

(Sorry if this has no title, my computer's acting funky. it should read: Oatmeal Toppings)

What sorts of things do you add to your hot oatmeal to make it more palatable? I used to put in loads of honey but have started using ground cardamom and cinnamon which makes it really tasty.

  1. I use peanut butter and a little bit of sugar. My mom likes blueberries and chopped walnuts.

      i love porridge simply with a bit of natural honey and if feeling extra hungry a bannana or two. i like porridge without spices i think you can taste the creamy oats better but thats just me every on e else in my family likes it with cinnamon and my brother has his with chinese five spice.

    2. a handful of raisins while it cooks, and then a dab of butter, a teaspoon of brown sugar or marmalade or jam, and then milk.


      1. There's an epic thread about oatmeal add-ins on this site already. Use the search tool. It has hundreds of ideas!!

          1. basics. brown sugar slowly melting into it, milk or cream to cool it down, cut up whatever dried fruit I have - persimmons have been wonderful lately
