My new favorite breakfast

12 Mar

While doing my weekly grocery shopping last week I ran across these cute little boxes of oatmeal by a brand I had never seen–Better Oats. This oatmeal has changed my life. I mean, I have always been a big fan of a little Maple and Brown Sugar Quaker Oatmeal (especially if you put a Dove chocolate on top), but this stuff blows Quaker out of the water. My favorite flavor is called “mmm… Muffins: Blueberry Muffin.” The oats are large and there are real blueberries in it! After trying and loving this flavor–which tastes just like a blueberry muffin, with none of the big blueberry muffin calories–I bought three more flavors at Jewel because they were on sale for 80 cents a box. Each box has 5 packets inside, so I thought that was a pretty good deal! I am kicking myself now that I didn’t buy more, especially since the mmm… Muffins are now gone. Dave and I have tried and enjoyed the Maple and Brown Sugar and the Strawberries and Cream flavors. Still in the cabinet–dark chocolate. I may go open a packet of that as I just ran 8 miles (!!) and I am starving. If you are a big oatmeal fan, go out and get some of this oatmeal! It only takes 2 minutes to cook in the microwave, and the oatmeal comes in packages that you can use to measure the water. Very convenient and tasty!
