Quaker Instant Oatmeal , it can also be a semi-sweet ending to a light, nutritious meal. Come to think of it, oatmeal is a great way to satisfy your hunger any time of day. Check out these fun and funky oatmeal toppers that can turn your heart-healthy, fiber-packed breakfast into a delightful, anytime treat. Quaker has 9 varieties of instant oatmeal; here's a topping idea for each one:
Original - For those who prefer their oatmeal on the savory side, try sprinkling your original flavor oatmeal with Parmesan cheese and diced sun-dried tomatoes.
Raisin, Date and Walnut - Once you try this combination you'll never think of oatmeal the same way again. Top off your raisin, date and walnut bowl with some fresh figs and mascarpone cream.
Strawberries and Cream - As if strawberries and cream weren't enough, add a few banana slices and some crumbled vanilla wafers for an over-the-top scrumptious silky-crunch.
Maple and Brown Sugar - Can't decide between savory and sweet? Just add a few bacon bits on top of your Maple and Brown Sugar oatmeal to satisfy both cravings.
Apples and Cinnamon - Turn your oatmeal bowl into an American classic apple pie by adding crushed up graham crackers to the apples and cinnamon flavor.
Peaches and Cream - Ice cream junkies can turn their oatmeal into a trip to the dairy by sprinkling some crumbled waffle cones atop their peaches and cream.
Cinnamon and Spice - Enjoy sweet, spicy, crunchy and tart all at once by throwing in a few slices of Granny Smith apples to your cinnamon and spice oatmeal.
Raisin and Spice - Add some sweet, crunchy protein to your raisin and spice oatmeal by tossing in a few honey-roasted peanuts.
Chocolate Chip - If you're going to eat chocolate chip oatmeal you might as well go all the way. Sprinkle in some butterscotch chips and add a touch of cream.Content by Cherri Megasko .
