Oatmeal - how do you like to eat it? recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Do you like oatmeal? Does your family eat oatmeal? We are a house divided. Most of us like oatmeal fine, although one young boy is not fond of it at all. He loves it baked or in a cookie, but the usual bowl of oatmeal is his least favorite breakfast choice. As a result, we’ve eaten oatmeal made in countless different ways. Steel cut oats or old fashioned, never the instant varieties for us. Topped with brown sugar and butter is our standard choice, sometimes raisins or a drizzle of cream.

What is your favorite way to eat oatmeal? I’d love to find some new options for us to try!

    I agree with you, it's steel cut or old fashioned. Out of the 6 of us 3 love it for breakfast covered in nuts, raisins and maple syryp! 2 are ok with it and 1 hates it (the picky one!) but yes, everyone loves it in cookies!

    We put dried fruit in ours. We have tried many types but they are happy with apples and craisins the most. I have also done some mini chocolate chips which they enjoyed.

    We also have one that is really not fond of oatmeal so we play with it a lot.

    I'm pathetic. I like mine just old fashioned with some sugar in it. But my boys won't eat oatmeal, unless it's in the cookies 🙂

    I am a simple oatmeal gal. I like mine with butter and sugar (reminds me of my favorite – Farina) that way. I am trying Apple Cinnamon tomorrow with the apple crisps I made in the food dehydrator today.

    a little bit of brown sugar, some strawberry slices, and a nice scoop of ice cream in the center 🙂
