ISO ideas for flavoring overnight oats

I made overnight oats in the fridge last night for the first time. DH likes oatmeal during the winter, and I'm hoping this will be a warm-weather alternative to bagels I'm looking for ideas for flavoring it in addition to the vanilla yogurt-Penzeys pie spice-raisins I did last night. What do you use? TIA.

Maple syrup. Cinnamon and a bit of brown sugar is nice too. Dried apples or other dried fruit.

I second both the maple syrup and dried fruit.

I do this in the Zoji on porridge setting, takes 2 hours:

1-1/2 cups steel cut oats
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
3-1/2 cups whole milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/2 cup raisins


The maple syrup has to come from gluten free, free range, organic, non GMO, cage free wild New England maple trees.

If you start out with a plain basic recipe I think rhubarb sauce would be a nice addition at this time of year.

I use maple syrup, preserves (apricot, strawberry), cinnamon and brown sugar.

Wherever will I find free-range, cage-free maple syrup??

I like a squeeze of honey with either a splash of half and half or some chopped walnuts. Dried cranberries and walnuts is good, too, or dried cherries with almonds.

I've been making a batch of steel cut oats in my Staub pot once a week, dividing it into four portions, and putting three away in the fridge for later in the week. The fourth serving is put away in my tummy that same day.

Try using apple juice instead of water to make a very tasty oatmeal.
