Happy 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
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!
