Help, how much brown sugar can I add to my oatmeal before making it unhealthy?

In brief: Brown sugar

Brown sugar is just regular sugar with a little molasses.
How much sugar is unhealthy? That depends on what else you're eating. When it comes to simple carbohydrates, it really doesn't matter if you're talking about pasta or white bread or honey or agave syrup or table sugar. It winds up being the same thing to your body. If you're overweight or at risk for diabetes, rethink your whole diet.
