I don't like the consistency of the sachets, I think they're cut too small or are too mushy. I buy the uncle Toby's oats and cook them in the microwave, then stir through sultanas and cinnamon, then slice up a banana on top and a bit of honey, you could just omit the banana though :-)

I feed DD Oats so Simple as they aren't big and chunky but not super fine like the sachets. I make it with milk. A drop of honey and then what ever fruit is around at the time.
Some times ill make it with yoghurt.

I love oatmeal/porridge! I do one part oats to two parts water on the stove until creamy then I'll add a little milk to cool it down a little and make it milky after I serve it in the bowl. Sometimes I just mix honey with it other times I'll poor some frozen berries in the pot with the oats and let them stew while the oats cook.
I just use whole/rolled oats, they're healthier.

I bought the woolies brand sachets last time and they don't seem as fine as the uncle Toby's ones. I buy those for DS- he has the flavoured one though.
I'm liking the cinnamon idea-will definitely try that one and maybe vanilla extract.

i dont eat oates/porridge but DD loves the stuff. I buy the cheap "quick oates" for like $1 for a big 1K ?? pack?
I pour a bowl for DD and let them soak in warmed milk for half our then i zap in microwave for a few secs to heat it thru. She has banana with them and shovels it in with her hands because she's figured out she cant eat them quick enough with the spoon!

I like whole oats cooked with chopped up dates and milk..the dates make it sweet.
I know how NOT to cook it - my DH is Scottish and has his cooked with water and salt! I'd not recommend that, it's awful!

I just wanted to add that the oats so simple are around $2.30 for a pack and it just lasts for what seems like forever. At a guess two months? But only Dd eats it. We found it cheaper then the pack ones and nicer too
