Healthy Oatmeal Recipes
 
Anyone have good Oatmeal recipes? I normally mix it with my protein powder and peanut butter, but sometimes that gets old so I am looking for help.

Mixing in protein powder is about as fancy as I get. I never thot of the PB.
I'm sure open to some ideas.

Apple Cinnamon:
Add chopped apple or a few teaspoons of natural, unsweetened applesauce to oatmeal and cook. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Maple & Brown Sugar
Use sugar-free pancake syrup and a dash of cinnamon or artificial brown sugar replacement by Sugar Twin that is now available.

Fruit & Cream:
Add a little milk or vanilla protein powder and a few strawberries, blueberries, peaches, or a teaspoon of sugar free preserves.

Maple Walnut:
Add 1 tbsp sugar-free pancake syrup and a few chopped walnuts.

French Vanilla:
Add 1 tsp vanilla, a splash of low-fat milk, and a packet of artificial sweetener.

Cinnamon Raisin:
Try using a few dashes of cinnamon, a splash of sugar-free maple syrup and a teaspoon of raisins.
Protein Boost:
Stir in 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder.

Butter Pecan:
Add a splash of imitation butter flavor, teaspoon of Promise fat-free butter replacement or a few dashes of Butter Buds and a teaspoon of chopped pecans.

I've always stuck to the oatmeal/100% choc. whey combo. I really never care for taste, only the functionality of what I eat anyways. If it tastes like sh!t but gets me 10 more pounds, I'll take seconds.

this was my motto when i started taking protien shakes didnt care much for the taste but when the results came, i suddenly enjoyed them alot more. same thing happened with creatines since it taste horrible i really didnt like the loading phase because of how many times a day i had to deal with the taste then i got some results and the same thing happened....i couldnt taste the creatine anymore. its a vicious cycle at first but then its what u look forward to

I love reading some of the Bulk Nutrition reviews. Alot of them give only one star because they can't handle the taste. Sad, those are the ones that will be perpetual 150 lb losers striving to become "big" and il'll never happen. :(

Great suggestions everyone. I am going to have to try those out soon.

Sleazy, those remind me of the variety flavored packs that I don't get to eat anymore. LOL So I am going to try some of those real soon. :)

Man, I almost forgot what oats tasted like. Ive been grinding them and using them in shakes for carbs. Or in the morning, Ill throw 50-75g in a cup and drink. Nothing fancy. But I used to put anything and everythin in then. anything sweet, anything meat, anything.
Think about it, its kinda like pancakes, you can put syrups and fruits on them, or make them thin, then they are crepes and you fill with meats. I may be crazy, but Ill eat about anything. Hell, my diet was as bland, 40lb of chicken in the freezer, 2 bags of idaho potatos, 2 bags of reds, sweet pots, then canned tuna/turkey/chicken, baked beans, oats and supps, and oils.
Or like rice, what do you not put in rice?
Moral of story, add anything, add tuna, or ham. If cutting I would just stay away from sugars/fruit, splenda may be cool.
