I almost always use pure fresh maple syrup or raw honey instead of white sugar in my oatmeal which add more flavor and sweetness than white sugar. If you haven’t tried yet, try adding maple syrup or raw honey and see how you like it.
Most of the time the plain oatmeal prepared in just water without using milk also taste delicious and great, but you may add milk if you wish!
My most favorite combination with honey and oats is peanut butter as it tastes heavenly when you combine the three – raw honey, peanut butter and oatmeal.
For half a cup of oatmeal, cook with a cup of milk (if you do not want it to be free of milk or dairy products) and add a tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon of peanut butter.
If you want more sweetness you may add a little more pure honey and it will just taste so much delicious. Along with honey or maple syrup, you can also try other nut butters like cashew butter or almond butter as you like.
Adding fresh fruits or dried fruits is another great way to make your oatmeal taste better or great without sugar.
My favorite combination is fresh apples and cinnamon powder along with a hint of honey but I also love the combination of fresh blueberries, raisins, dates etc.
Adding exotic spices too make oatmeal tastes better, good and great! My favorite spices for oatmeal are organic cinnamon powder (which is especially great with apples), pumpkin spice, ginger powder etc.
