Thank you so much for this recipe compilation!! I love oatmeal but it can get so boring having it every morning so this is a really great way to change things up. So far, I have made the pumpkin, chocolate, banana PB, and PB & jam variations and loved them all! Can't wait to try the rest! UPDATE: Just made the maple cinnamon cottage cheese variation and it's delicious!! I used quick cook steel cut oats, wheat bran, skipped the salt, used almond milk, twin brand brown sugar, and a banana. I had to microwave for 3 minutes, stir, and microwave another 2 minutes for the steel oats (I went off of the container directions).

These oatmeal variations were just what I needed! My father was visiting for a month and he likes to have oatmeal for breakfast a few times a week. I tried several of them (4, 5, 14, 17, and 24) and he enjoyed the variety very much. The nice thing was all the ingredients were things that I already had on hand. He took a copy of the recipe with him so he could try some more at home.

Wow, what an impressive collection of ideas and photos! I thought I had tried oatmeal every way possible, but there are a few combinations here that I had not tried. I used the stovetop method for these, as that is what we prefer. I made the s'mores one first, and it was really great! I omitted the milk powder and used room temp chocolate chips so they would melt a little. The flavors were perfect together. Second, I made the berry cheesecake. Also very good. The only frozen fruit I had were blackberries and cherries, so I used those. Third, I made the nutella banapple one with the higher amount of nutella. This was yummy too. I don't like things too sweet, but I did add a little drizzle of maple syrup to this, as it wasn't quite sweet enough for me. Nuts would have been really good with it too. The s'mores one was definitely my favorite, for which I give this recipe 5 stars. In our house we double the amount this recipe lists for one person (same amount as on package - 1/2 cup/person).

We are oatmeal crazy after finding these recipe variations! We love the apple/cinnamon and the peaches and cream, and I'm definitely going to try the other variations too. Yum! BTW, my toddlers especially love to have different things for breakfast and this works so well!

I love making oatmeal different so this is a great list of mix-ins that I have not thought of.

I've only tried one and I had to do mine on the stovetop (just made regular oatmeal and added in the toppings), but it was wonderful. I hadn't thought of some of these combos. Thank you for compiling these.

This is really good! I made mine with just some homemade strawberry jam and about a tablespoon of cream cheese. I can't wait to try other variations. Thank you for posting the recipe and all the time and effort you put into the pics!

I had the berry cheesecake with a few alterations, I only added blueberry's and cream cheese (no jam) to the oats with a sprinkling of salt and truvia. It was delicious!
