Default How do you guy make you oatmeal taste good?

Cooking oatmeal in water doesn't yield the best taste in the world. Was just wondering what if anything you guys may add to it to make it a bit easier to get down.

cinnamon and splenda if you are actually going to cook it; i prefer to grind it and just slam it down so i don't have to plug my nose to eat it

I usually put a scoop of protein in mine, gives me the taste as well as the extra protein.

I like it a lot too. It's just that I've never had it so "bare" (if you will) before. I guess it's just a matter of adding a few things here and there to make a bit better tasting. I've always had the pre-packaged stuff that is filled with sugar.

Thanks for the info guys. I'll try some things out. Just don't want to add unnecessary sugar and calories is all.

1 tsp agave
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup oats
approx. 10 raisins
water/milk to your liking

I like it in both water and milk, although lately I have been doing it in water.

EDIT: I also remember an episode of Alton Brown's show on food network when he made oatmeal with an herbal tea instead of water. I believe it was an orange chamomile tea. I should give this a try tomorrow.
