There is nothing better to kick start the day than oats. Here are 8 ways to make oats more appealing:

Apple Pie

If you love to dig into apple pie then this flavored oats is what you should try. Simply add pureed apple sauce or chopped apple, along with a dash of cinnamon, maple syrup and walnuts to make it seem as if you are biting into a slice of apple pie.

Pumpkin Pie

If you wish you enjoyed Pumpkin pie all year round and not just during Halloween this is the way to go about it. Stir in pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling), along with the other spices that make pumpkin pie what it is such as cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.

Chocolate Honey delight

For chocolate lovers, who wish chocolate dominated every part of their lives, mix few teaspoons of instant chocolate drinking powder (for mild taste) or cocoa powder (for a richer chocolate flavor) along with a dash of honey for an almost sinful experience of healthy oats.

Berry blast

Add some zing to regular boring oats, by mixing in some berries that not only will make it more interesting to eat but are also very nutritious. You can choose from a variety of berries like strawberry, blueberry, raspberry etc… to add to your oats mix with milk and sugar.

Egg and herbs

If savory oats is your thing, then flavor your oats with a poached egg and seasoning of your choice like Italian seasoning like oregano or basil, or even regular herbs like rosemary and thyme.

Molten Snickers

Peanut butter is loved by people of all ages. So why not flavor your oats with it. Make your oats more interesting by adding a few tablespoons of peanut butter as a base flavoring, along with other interesting interchangeable ingredients like chocolate, chopped fruit, nut etc…

Nut cracker

To get your daily dose of Omega-3 there is no easier way to get it than nuts, seeds and seafood. So liberally sprinkle assorted chopped nuts and seeds all over your porridge like sesame seeds, almonds, cashew nuts, walnuts, flax seeds etc…

Cheesy Oats

If you feel that you enjoy the comfort of Mac and Cheese, then consider adding cheddar cheese to your oats and enjoy a protein packed meal at the start of the day.

So do try out these interesting healthy variations to regular boring oatmeal. Serve them to your family at the breakfast table and count the smiles.
