photo 1-6Happy Saturday morning!  I’m out and about on a long run right now, but I just wanted to share a new product that made my favorite new breakfast (as of yesterday): My Oatmeal.  My Oatmeal allows you to create your own custom oatmeal.  You even get to name it!  I had a hard time deciding on what flavor to make because all of them sounded potentially amazing.  I decided to go with my true love: cookies (and all kind of cookies).

My “double cookie blend” creation included:
Oats: Signature Smash Blend (combo of instant, 5 grain and steel cut oats)
Flavors: Oatmeal Cookie & Snickerdoodle
Fruits: Dates & Golden Raisins
Nuts: Pecans
Sweetener: Brown Cane Sugar Granules

They suggest that you add a sweetener if you add any flavors so that it comes out right. I went with what seemed like the most natural option.

When it came to making the oats, I was worried it might be a little too sweet.  You see, I had already been picking out and snacking on the raisins/dates and got a little sugar high.  So I made my bowl with 1/2 My Oatmeal, and 1/2 regular oats. It turned out perfectly thick, with just the right amount of sweetness. And naturally I had to top it with some banana slices and peanut butter.

I am in love with this new breakfast and can’t wait to put it on repeat!
