8 Exciting Oatmeal Flavor Combos — All Under 400 Calories

Move over, cold bowl of cereal! This time of year calls for warming yourself up with a bowl of hot and hearty oatmeal. Full of whole-grain fiber, this breakfast will keep you satisfied all morning, which equals weight loss! Buying plain oats is healthier than buying packets that are already sweetened, and less expensive too, but that doesn't mean you have to go without flavor. Add these delicious morsels to your next half-cup serving of rolled oats (190 calories).

  • One small diced banana (89), three ounces nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt (62), and two walnut halves, chopped (26): 367 calories
  • One small diced pear (86), eight pistachios (32), and one-quarter cup granola (86): 394 calories
  • One small diced apple (80), one chopped Medjool date (66), six chopped almonds (42), and a sprinkle of cinnamon (0): 378 calories
  • One tablespoon peanut butter (95), one-eighth cup dried cherries (65), and one teaspoon maple syrup (15): 365 calories
  • One tablespoon almond butter (95), half a cup unsweetened applesauce (51), one tablespoon honey (64): 400 calories
  • One cup fresh or frozen blueberries (84) and one tablespoon chopped cashews (49): 323 calories
  • One cup chopped pineapple (41), one-eighth cup raisins (54), and one tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut (37): 322 calories

This morning I tried 1/2 c old fashioned oats, 1 tbsp of peanut butter and 1 tsp of real maple syrup. It was so good and kept me full all morning. I usually have a 10am snack, but I wasn't even hungry this time. I want to try the banana/yogurt one next. I almost did that one this morning but I only had Greek yogurt and I thought it would be better w/ regular.

LOL SweetNGlow I just saw your post #21 about the egg on the oatmeal (I didn't read it until after I posted mine lol)

I love doctoring up my oatmeal. This morning I had Irish steel cut oatmeal with a fried egg on top - so good! It was different as I usually go with fruit and nuts so this was a nice change of pace.

I make my oatmeal with apple cider instead of water and a dash of pumpkin pie spice.

Dr. Jonny Bowden's favorite "raw foods" breakfasts is made of raw oats, almond slices, apple slices, flaked coconut, and Goji berries, moisten with some pomegranate juice. It's worth a try!

kclulu... I've never tried pistachios and cranberries. Do you use sweetened dried cranberries, fresh or frozen? This may sound way out there, but you can also top your hot oatmeal with a poached egg and some salsa. Or you can have it raw in yogurt, or make your own oat bar by rolling raw oats, chopped almonds, shredded coconut, raisins and teaspoon of honey or molasses to bind it together.

My favorite thing to do when I have a bunch of apples around is to dice up half an apple and cook it with the oats and a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. It's so good!

Zarah, you do oatmeal in the summer months? I opt for cold cereal when it's hot and Oats when the temps drop...

Pistachios and cranberries is what I have been doing lately.

During the summer, fresh peaches, walnuts and cinnamon make an unbelievable combination. Sadly peach season is over, so I'll try some of these other options.
