So today I didn’t want a ton of sweetener in oatmeal. I chopped a little onion, some parsley and garlic – sauteed that in butter and a little beef fat. Then added chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper and a little cinnamon.
You’ll need 1/2 chopped onion – chop it fine if you can.
Bunch up the parsley and slice across. Maybe 1 or 2 tablespoons.
If you want fresh garlic chop up about a tablespoon worth – for convenience you can use the big jars of chopped garlic.
For spices – a tablespoon of Chili Powder, a dash of cumin and paprika and maybe a tablespoon of cinnamon. Then salt and pepper to taste.
Make the oatmeal with the water and salt. Then stir in some of the sauteed onion, garlic and parsley with the spices. It’s easy – tastes awesome. No added sugar necessary.

I try to eat oatmeal on a daily basis – usually with dried fruit if anything at all.
Your way is certainly an alternative !
I eat porridge but not this kind of savoury style.
Since we’ve been doing this someone is also on Metformin and his blood sugar is down to 94. Totally in range. We’ve pretty much tried to eliminate all added sugar and carbs.
