any way to spice this stuff up a little? i hate the taste of it and suffer eating it every morning. it' tastes like mushy cardboard, most of the time i just poor milk over it and eat it like cereal. any suggestions on better ways to make it?
Just toss it in a protein shake, blend, and enjoy!!!
2 cups milk, 1 scoop ATW cinnamon bun
Recently I've been adding about an ounce of some super juice to it (blend of goji, mangosteen, noni, acai, pomagranate, etc.)
It adds a little bit of a fruity taste to it that is blends suprisingly well with cinnamon.

Use it with a cup of 2% or whole organic milk. Add some xylitol (natural sweetener) or sweet and low (not natural) and enjoy. You can also add some lecithin granules along with flax seeds, but that won't really help the taste much, maybe a little bit. You can also mix half oatmeal/half cereal that you like.
Yeah microwave with milk and your favorite flavor whey, since it has essentially no taste any flavor whey works in it
8-12oz of skim milk, serving of oats, and 1-2 scoops of protein. Heaven. I can't stand oatmeal so I have to do this! I use the sugar free that comes in the pouches.
splenda and cinnamon with some ground flax seed. or just use a scoop of whey for sweetness and flavor and high protein.
i must diet reallky hard because oatmeal and water is delicious to me.
generally when I mix protein powder, I find that it tastes worse than the two individually, so I rarely do that.
here are the ways I eat it, which will not taste as good as the above stated, but have better health profiles and benefits.
1.) 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa (high in antioxidants) + two packets of splenda for 1 cup of dry oatmeal. hot water and you're done!
2.) just oatmeal hot water and ground flax seeds! nutty, and high in omega 3s
3.) some natural form of peanut butter, or "naturally more", the omega 3 peanut butter i usuallky use... a few tablespoons mixed in.
1 cup oats
1 tablespoon natural PB
2 scoops whey, chocolate is very good in this
Adding in peanut butter, protein powder and/or fruit usually does the trick for me. Even a little cinnamon can go a long way. If you don't like the consistency, try making some protein pancakes.
is the quaker instant oatmeal ok to eat? i know it has sugar in it but the first ingredient is whole grain oats.
I add in a little bit of sugar free maple syrup...
I like the instant packets, original flavor (unflavored). They are smaller oats than the bulk style and just taste better to me. I mix fruity (i.e.strawberry) protien powder and splenda for flavoring and then add the hot water.
I also LOVE this one:
Mix one packet with 1-1.5 scoops of choc. protien (I like Dymatize cafe mocha) and a good amount of splenda. Add all the natural pb you feel comfortable with (depending on dieting goals, gobs if you can use the calories) and mix with a wisk until evenly distributed. Add the smallest amount of skim milk you can to get it to mix together. You end up with like a no-bake cookie dough. I just eat it by the spoonful.
