I cook my rolled oats in the microwave. I just cover the oats with water in a cereal bowl and slap a saucer on top - perfect every time and no pot to wash. Typically I add dried cherries and toasted walnuts along with the rolled oats and then once cooked add a dollop of plain yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Honey and dried, plump fruits, like cherries, Craisins and golden raisins.

Though I like brown sugar and...well, pretty much any kind of syrup, they don't do it for me in oatmeal. Only honey and letting it sit for a bit does the trick. :)

I do both of these. I place 1/2 cup of water into a microwaveable bowl and bring to a boil. I then add 1/4 cup rolled oats and cook an additional 1 minute, though I don't place anything on top to cover the bowl. I take the bowl out of the microwave and let set for 3 to 5 minutes.

This is where I add variety. Some mornings I add things to spice it up a bit, and other mornings I just eat it plain. I quite like adding dried fruit and a bit of honey. I've never tried syrup, though, it sounds interesting and I may try this tomorrow. I always eat my oatmeal with a piece of plain wheat toast.

Look what I happened to find today. Half an isle of it! I bought several varieties:)
EDIT: I guess uploading the image from an iPhone wasn't the best idea, it seems to have been rotated.

Next time turn your phone sideways. Just like you would do with a regular camera.

Excellent advice! Don't know why I didn't think of that

Indeed! While I was there I made a list of the ones I found interesting. Can't wait for next payday, I'll be stocking my kitchen

It seems I made a great choice, this stuff is excellent. I added 1/4 cup of this to 1/2 cup boiling water and cooked for 1 minute. When cooled, I added some raisins, some honey and some almond milk. It was delicious!

I don't cook my rolled oats.

I like them straight with milk and whatever I have on hand to flavor them.

Banana slices are always a favorite along with a touch of sugar.
