    Default How do you make your oats/porridge edible?

    I'm trying to be healthy and have bought some of those plain quick oats sachets to have for breakfast each morning. They are pretty dull and flavourless. Has anyone got any good suggestions of what to add to make them more palatable?
    I tried sliced banana on top which was nice but give me absolutely horrible indigestion. I don't want to go adding any excessive amounts of sugar, defeating my attempt at having a healthy breakfast. So what else could i try?
    Any ideas?

    I make DD's oats and mix through some home made pureed apple and pear mix, it's delicious, DH started doing the same with his!

    Try different fruit till you find something you like that won't give you pain.
    Other than that I have no real suggestions I love oats with a little bit of brown sugar ( not the healthiest but is yum).

    Good luck though

    DD who is 8 has started eating oats so I buy the creamy honey sachets and make them with milk in the microwave and she likes a 1/2 teaspoon of raw sugar sprinkled on top while it is still hot enough to melt, I don't eat oats so I can't tell you if it tastes good but she loves it

    We start by soaking our oats overnight (not the quick oats obviously) which gives them a lovely texture and makes them quick to cook.

    Then we add a teaspoon or two of raw honey, a bit of cream and some cinnamon.

    Heaps of flavour!

    I used to eat oats, I'd cook them in the microwave, with milk, then add yogurt after they were cooked.

    Yum.

    I always make my porridge on milk...or already half milk and water...when I am being good I add only cinnamon...when I am being naughty I add a little raw sugar too.

    Hmm, I wonder if vanilla would be a nice addition?

    I make porridge for my ds and freeze it in ice cube trays. Needs a good stir and some added milk when reheated but tastes good and is heaps cheaper than using the sachets.

    I add a little honey, cinnamon (good for digestive health) and sultanas. Or I finely chop an apple and add a little vanilla essence. If I'm feeling naughty, I love love love brown sugar mmmm!

    Also, if I'm too lazy too cook them, I sprinkle them over greek yoghurt with honey and some frozen (thawed) raspberries. It's delish!
