Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast dishes of all time. It gives me the right amount of fuel to start my day and keeps me satisfied until lunch rolls around. Oatmeal is a fiber-rich food that helps lower cholesterol, sustains appetite, and contains antioxidants that fight cancer-causing compounds known as free radicals.

Typically, I make my stovetop oatmeal with these ingredients:

Sliced 1/2 banana, 1/4 cup oats, 3/4 cup almond milk — cook at medium heat on the stove, lightly stirring until you reach your desired consistency.

How do I never get sick of this breakfast? I change my variations up constantly and always experiment with flavors of the season. So that brings me to my top five current oatmeal variations list. Click through to see them all.
