After a long run of greek yogurt + topping breakfasts, the cold weather has shifted our morning meal into oatmeal mode. What are your favorite toppings for hot cereal?

We prep the oats the night before in our rice cooker on a timer and they're ready when we wake up. (yay for kitchen robots!) We're doing steel-cut oats in water, though we might switch it up to a 10-grain hot cereal or quinoa.
We'd prefer the topping to have some form of protein/healthy fat, so not just sugar. For example, this week we did chopped dates with slivered almonds.
I prefer savory/not-too-sweet. Hubs has a sweet tooth, but we can take turns, so all ideas are welcome. No dietary restrictions, and pretty good access to hippie, yuppie and ethnic grocers. The idea of leaving milk in the rice cooker overnight squicks me out, though if I'm being irrational, let me know.
