Oatmeals more fun!

Hello everyone..
How's your day so far? so today i'll continue on about how you can make your oatmeal more exciting.

  1. Add fresh or frozen fruit. Sliced bananas are particularly good. A little fistful of frozen blueberries not only add flavor to instant oatmeal, but your mouth will marvel over the inviting temperature / texture differential when you bite into each little berry.

  2. Add dried fruit such as raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries, dates or sweetened shredded coconut.

  3. Add chopped nuts like walnuts or almonds. Finely chopped nuts can create a tasty crumbled topping.

  4. Add a tablespoon or two of your favorite granola. Mushy boring oatmeal is yesterday's business. Today you can easily add a delightful crunch to any bowl of oatmeal.

  5. Add a dribble of pure delicious maple syrup.

  6. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Never be afraid of more flavor.

  7. Add a little dollop of yogurt. Flavored yogurts add taste and all yogurts add a smooth creamy texture.

  8. Crush a little handful of your favorite dry breakfast cereal onto your oatmeal. Cap'n Crunch oatmeal anyone?

  9. Stir in a couple teaspoons of your jam or fruit preserves and turn your oatmeal into a fruity fiesta bowl.

  10. Add a single tablespoon of ice cream to your oatmeal. Your mouth will go crazy with pleasure as the cool ice cream mingles with the warm oats.
Honorable mention goes to these oatmeal additions, most of which should only be enjoyed by really skinny people: whipped cream, chocolate chips, mini-marshmallows, butter and brown sugar, crumbled candy bars (seriously) and eggnog.
