Oatmeal to the Max

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by veggie_mama

I never serve plain oatmeal. I keep adding ingredients to boost the nutrition. I don't like sweet oatmeal, so there is no sweetener in this recipe. Feel free to add sugar or agave nectar to your taste. You can't mess this recipe up. You can add sliced/diced fruit on top after it is cooked, or cook it with the oatmeal. Sometimes I add a couple of tablespoons of finely chopped nuts and various dried fruits as well. Kids love this and it is very filling.

This is a very nice, healthy breakfast. I didn't have any Fiber One cereal on hand so I substituted a multi-grain granola. The raisins and banana added enough sweetness for my taste. As stated by a previous, I couldn't taste the pumpkin. Thanks for another oatmeal recipe to add to my collection. Breakfast is becoming a lot less boring. Made for PAC Fall '08
