My main question is whether you prepare your oatmeal with water or milk? I'm trying to decide if adding milk for taste is worth the extra calories. Secondly, do you add sugar, salt, butter, berries or anything else? Any input would be appreciated!
I'll add various things. Lately I've been adding a tbsp of chunky peanut butter or almond butter and almonds, raisins or sliced banana. I was adding a packet of splenda for a while, but I forgot it one day and found that the almond butter sweetened the oatmeal enough that I didn't need it.
Berries sound yummy. I've never like butter or salt in oatmeal.
I bought some Nutella the other day to try instead of peanut or almond butter. I haven't quite gotten the courage yet to stir it into a batch. Cocoa and oatmeal doesn't sound quite right....but we'll see.
