I have started to like the quaker oats and I have tried different ways to prepare it. However I wonder what else I can eat apart from the oats. I am on low sweet food and low calorie type diet. And though weight is not under control I wish to get it as soon as possible. That being said, quaker oats can be really boring after some times. I need to find other healthy recipes soon. Or else I will be drawn back to high calorie food back again.

My favourite way of eating oats is as Swiss Muesli. You soak the oats overnight (in either milk or water) and add more milk to make the consistency to your taste, add chopped fresh fruit (apple or banana are my favourites), some lemon juice, a handful of sultanas or chopped apricots and some chopped nuts. I usually sweeten with sugar or honey but you could use Stevia or Splenda. This also works very well with almond milk instead of regular milk and toasting the oats lightly before soaking gives a nuttier flavour. I much prefer this recipe to porridge (though porridge is good in the winter) and it is far nicer than the so-called "Muesli" which you can buy as an instant cereal in packets.

@skysnap I actually just do it the same way - putting powdered milk and a bit of sugar . Well, some people makes cookies out of oatmeal . And we have these quaker oats cookies flavored , apple and cinnamon in the market already and they are delicious . .
