Getting the most out of oatmeal

As an oatmeal fan, I was surprised to find that instant oatmeal didn't stick with me the way rolled oats did. When I switched back to regular unsweetened rolled oats and added freshly grated apple, made it with skim milk instead of water, added cinnamon and just a touch of brown sugar, it got me all the way to lunch.

I agree. I don't eat the instant anymore. For one thing, its too sweet. I was using 2 pks, 1 like, apples & cinn and 1 plain, it still didn't cut the mustard. So I use the Old fashion oats. Much better. I just add 1 Tbs of brown sugar and fruit of anykind, normally a banana.

And the old fashioned oats don't even take long to cook, maybe three minutes in the microwave. I wonder what other junk is put in the instant? Or what comes out of it when they make it instant? Sometimes I miss oats but (a) I'm mostly Paleo and (b) my spouse hates the smell!
