4 Ways to Make Oatmeal Interesting

Oatmeal is a breakfast go-to. Especially when you need something quick or the omelet line is just way too long.  While delicious, filling, and a personal favorite, I will admit oatmeal with raisins can get a little boring after awhile. But in my experimentation I have found some great add-ins that make oatmeal a million times more exciting and delicious. Here are some combinations that I love:

Peanut Butter and Banana

Apple and Cinnamon


French Toast: This one is a little less self-explanatory, but just add ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, a pinch of salt, and some maple syrup!

Try any one of these oatmeal combos and trust me, you won’t be disappointed. The key to keeping it interesting is to experiment yourself—when it comes to what tastes good in oatmeal, the sky is the limit! With a few exceptions of course… but go crazy and let us know if you come up with anything outstanding!
