If you add peaches, or even apples, you may find that you miss the sugar less--esp. if you cook the fruit into the oatmeal. I chop up a peach, add it to oats and water, then nuke 4 min. This gets the peach nice and cooked so its juices flow into the oatmeal.
I can eat the above w/out any maple syrup (even tho I like the flavor of it--it's more that than the sweetness) but when I use berries I usually do add a small amount of maple syrup for flavor AND a little sweetness. This works well for me.

Me, too. I use banana, blueberries and strawberries on my oatmeal, along with cinnamon and a little almond extract. No sugar.
I eat oatmeal only on the weekends because of my work schedule, but I fantasize about it all week long!
