Toppings to Banish Oatmeal Boredom Once and For All

When I was growing up, oatmeal seemed to get a bad rap for being bland, goopy and just down-right uninspired. These days? Oatmeal—especially the steel-cut variety for the foodies out there—seems to be having a bit of a renaissance. And just like any plain grain, it can be a canvas for culinary deliciousness. If you’ve been stuck in an oatmeal rut, check out our recent video on healthy oatmeal toppings. As you’ll see, when it comes to oatmeal ideas, the sky really is the limit!

    I LOOOOOOOOVE oatmeal. I eat it year round and try to vary the toppings depending on the season. I love apples, cinnamon, and walnuts in my oatmeal. When I need a sweet-treat tho I like to use oatmeal to make these delicious (and low-cal) cookies ( http://www.greatist.com/general/lowcal-chocolate-peanut-butter-cookies/ ). Try them out and let me know what you think!

  3. Chopped fig, crystallized ginger and pecans are a favorite at my house. DH likes to sprinkle that with some unsweetened coconut. If I don’t feel like chopping dried fruit a tablespoon of fig butter is great.
