    I love this recipe called “Oatmeal Brulee” — you cook the oats with soy milk and some raisins, and then top them with a few chopped nuts and a teaspoon of brown sugar and put it under the broiler until the sugar carmelizes.

    It takes a while to make so it’s a special treat, not a weekday breakfast.

    OMG – I got some great ideas reading this. I love to try to new combos of add-ins for my oats and change it up a lot so I dont get bored. However, one of my favorite stand-bys is: 1/2 cup oats, cooked with water and cinnamon and nutmeg – then I throw in a whole peeled and diced Pink Lady apple, a tablespoon of ground flax seeds, a tablespoon of almond butter, and a tablespoon of agave nectar. Thanks so much for the contest Jenna! Love it!

    Hey, Jenna!!

    I’m not sure if you remember me at all, but we had a class or two together at CofC — most memorable, of course, being Victorian Lit with the beautiful and soothing (?) voice of Dr. Carens! I saw a link to your [fantastic/awesome/amazing] site on facebook a while back, and have kept you on my reader for a while…an early/slow morning at work has FINALLY allowed me to comment and say hey!

    I think your Meatless in March idea is so fun and smart! I was a vegetarian for 8 years, and now only eat poultry (I’ve always eaten seafood — as a former Charleston girl, I’m sure you understand why!) but that’s such a fun and earth/health-conscious way to connect with your readers πŸ™‚

    So, hopefully I’ll be commenting a lot more — PS, I have NEVER met another MeghanN before, and I think it’s so funny there’s one commenting to you/blogging herself! I’ll have to remember to add the “S” to my signature!

    Take care, Jenna!
    Meghann

    Oh! Yes! Because I was OB-SESSED with the Quaker Vanilla Cinnamon “Nutrition for Women” oatmeal (it’s no longer made, I believe) in high school, I always try and doctor up a version of my own, using vanilla soymilk, TONS of cinnamon, and some toasted walnuts for extra crunch πŸ™‚

    I cant tell you how oatmeal has changed my world – I fix myself up a bowl of oats (usually around a 1/2 cup) with milk and water, add in some cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, ground flaxseed, vanilla, banana, and strawberries to cook and simmer for a few minutes. after that is done, I pour it all into a container where i add the rest of the banana, some more strawberries, almond slivers, and vanilla granola. I take this with me to work, reheat for a few min and i cant tell you how wonderful the aroma is and how envious my coworkers are of my daily meal:)

    my favourite oatmeal is pretty simple, 1/2 cup slowed cooked oatmeal sprinkled with cinnamon and flax seeds, a tbsp of peanut butter (crunchy of course) and some milk all heated in the microwave and then mixed together!

    I have been lurking for a while since I read Kath Eats a lot and am relatively new to stove top oats. I usually made the instant flavored kind. I really like Kath’s banana stove top oats though – a little chewy and creamier than instant. I have not gotten brave and tried lots of other toppings yet though I am thinking about it!

    Oatmeal with 1/2 milk, 1/2 water, a full banana and cinnamon. Add in strawberries at the very end and then mix into a bowl that has a little bit of cottage cheese, salted peanuts and stir it all together and drizzle peanut butter on top. Absolutely delicious and so filling-it keeps me going for 4 to 5 hours!

    I eat 1/2 cup of Quaker Old Fashion oats with a couple teaspoons of Dutch cocoa, 2 packets of Splenda, and 2 tablespoons of PB2 mixed in. It has an awesome flavor and by using PB2 fairly low in calories- around 200 for the bowl.

    When I really want a treat, I add vanilla soy milk, coconut flakes, chocolate and butterscotch chips, and toasted pecans to a warm bowl of Quaker oats. It’s like eating a Hello Dolly bar, only way more satisfying!

    I have 2: for quick-cooking oats, I cook them with half water, half milk, and add craisins, sucanat, walnuts, and shredded coconut; for steel cut, I like them cooked overnight in the slow-cooker with half water, half apple juice, plus craisins and goji berries.
