Here are new ways to jazz up your morning breakfast.

Oatmeal is just one of those things that has stood the test of time. We remember winter mornings at grandma's house eating a bowl of homemade oats with just a pinch of brown sugar on top. Of course, in the years since those sweet mornings, the bowls in front of us have changed quite a bit. We now know there are endless possibilities to the variety of oatmeal toppings and brown sugar was just the beginning. Sweet, savory, crunchy, and fluffy, oatmeal is more than a one-trick pony. Here are seven of our favorite oatmeal toppings, just in time to warm you up for winter:

1. Pumpkin-Apple Quick Oatmeal

It's the flavor of the season, so it only makes sense to whip up your oatmeal with a dollop or two of canned pumpkin. Add in apple cider for a fall treat reminiscent of your favorite pie desserts. The best part? You can have this meal for breakfast!
