What are your stovetop oatmeal tricks?

FeeFee34 | Dec 10, 201412:45 PM     54

I go through oatmeal phases. Sometimes I love it. Sometimes I find it super unappealing. I have been in the unappealing phase for years now, and I'd like to change that because it's cold out and I go through too much cold cereal whenever I buy a box.

My question is: how do I make it tasty but not super filling? I have a sneaking suspicion that no one likes oatmeal, but rather oatmeal with pb, chocolate, coconut, fruit, nuts etc. stirred in. This is too much and too heavy for me. Do you have any tricks or preferences for a simple, sweet (not savory) oatmeal that's appetizing but won't make me feel like there's a rock in my stomach? Additions like bananas or honey are fine, I just don't like a whole separate breakfast stirred into a bowl of oatmeal.

What's funny is that I LOVE to heat up plain bran flakes in almond milk until they're a gloopy, hot mess, and while it's quite oatmeal-esque, somehow I love it infinitely more.
