How do you like your oats?

For those that eat them, I'm looking to brainstorm additional ways to have them so that they don't become boring.

How do you like to have them? Raw with milk/almond milk? microwaved? with honey? fruit? yogurt? something else? Talk to me people! Lets compare!

Re: How do you like your oats?

I eat my oatmeal with peanut butter. It sounds strange, but I love it. If I don't use peanut butter, its some sort of berry.

Re: How do you like your oats?

mixed with either peanut butter, scrambled eggs, or chopped bananas.

Re: How do you like your oats?

I'm eating some as i type mixed with milk and some unsweetened shredded coconut then microwaved for a couple of minutes.

Those of you who use peanut butter, is that before microwaving? Or do you have raw?

I'm curious if mixing with some protein powder and milk would turn out alright in the microwave, anyone tried?

James: all 3 sounds like an odd combo!

Lots of raisins and cinnamon. Or Vermont maple syrup.

Microwaving it with a banana until it turns to mush is awesome as well.

Re: How do you like your oats?

Its an infrequent treat, but I keep it simple with butter and maple syrup.

I also soak it overnight in water and a little kefir...helps mitigate the anti-nutrient issue.

Peanut butter after mixing hot water with oats.

To me, peanut butter goes well with pretty much each of the separate ingredients well (hell, I can eat it with anything or just straight) so for efficiency sake, throwing everything into the same bowl makes sense. It's definitely odd, but the way I see it, it's an 1200 calorie bowl of awesome (4 eggs, 1 cup dry oats, 1 medium banana, 4 tbsp all natural peanut butter)

Re: How do you like your oats?

James how much water do you mix into that? I am guessing you throw it all in and then microwave? If so, for how long? I tried the eggs in oatmeal once before and still havent decided how i like the taste.

Re: How do you like your oats?

Usual ratio is 1.5:1 (liquid to oats) more if you like it soupy, less if you like it a bit pasty. Usually make the oats first and mix the scrambled eggs in. I don't really feel right microwaving banana. The whole process takes less than 5 minutes, and most of it is waiting for the frying pan to get hot.
