Add 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 egg white, and ~4tbsp water (or to whatever consistency you like). I sprayed a small amount of oil and cooked over medium heat for 5 pancakes served with WF maple syrup. (Same as making pancakes with crispy cereal, but they're a slightly different consistency and make a bit more)

Another idea is to add it ontop of zucchini (I use 1 cup of my alotted veg from dinner or lunch), like an apple crumble...peel and slice zucchini into small-ish pieces (I cut 1/8" slices into quarters), season with spices (I use cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, and a tiny bit of stevia). Cook for a minute or so in microwave. Meanwhile mix the oatmeal with some water and olive oil (1/2tsp) until you get a 'crumble' consistency; then add ontop of zucchini and cook for another couple of minutes. I would recommend having it with the vanilla RTE pudding that's been frozen for ~45min (and some WF caramel dip drizzled ontop, if you're feeling indulgent).

If you're more of a salt-craver, I know I've seen some recipes for using oatmeal as pizza dough and bread-like things in the recipe threads.
