Putting Flavored Plain Oatmeal to the Test

OatsFor many years, I couldn’t stand the smell of plain oatmeal.  I preferred the instant flavored packets that were enough to mask the odor.  According to the book pictured below, however, flavored packets contained “a bevy of excess sugars and other ingredients that don’t belong in your breakfast bowl.”

So, as a person who should watch his diet, last night I tried using the oats (pictured above) as a snack to put plain oats to the test by adding to apples and cinnamon to it.  While it didn’t “mask” the overall oat taste, at least it’s better than no flavor at all.

This is the cookbook I plan to use as a dieting tool.

So, let’s just say it’s an acquired taste.  One test probably just isn’t enough.
