Product Review: Bob's Red Mill Oatmeal Cups #MomsMeet #Sponsor

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Moms Meet. All opinions are my own.

When the opportunity arose - through my association with Moms Meet - to try Bob's Red Mill's new oatmeal cups, I was excited. We love oatmeal in my household. I love oatmeal. Now.

Growing up, my mom made oatmeal every Monday for my entire life. I'm not joking. There was no deviation. Every. Single. Monday. Of my entire childhood. I refused to eat oatmeal for years after I left my parents' house. And I certainly would never eat it on a Monday!

But, gradually, I invited oatmeal back to my table because it is versatile, tasty, and good for you. However, the way I make oatmeal is not a quick breakfast. I usually use steel cut oats, simmer them till tender, season them with cinnamon and vanilla, and stir in chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, and dried fruit. It's a good forty-five minute process. But it is tasty.

I've been a long-time fan of the company and their products. At any given moment, you can find at least half a dozen products of theirs on my shelves. Their dried beans and flours are also a household staple. And, since my husband has been gluten-free for almost 18 months know, I always have bags of their gluten-free flours - whether pre-blended or different kinds for me to make my own blend.


We received the two each of their four different brand new oatmeal cup flavors, including apple pieces and cinnamon, blueberry hazelnut, brown sugar and maple, and classic. All flavors include flax seed and chia seeds. After we made our selections, we waited for the water to boil and read the labels. The biggest difference between the four: grams of sugar; the classic has only 1g of sugar while the apple pieces and cinnamon had the most with 13g.


We loved how easy it was. Boiling water and three minutes was all it took to have breakfast ready to go. The boys loved that it had a lid. Not that they took it anywhere, but I guess the possibility that they could take it somewhere was appealing to them. They asked to save the other cups for an upcoming camping trip. Great idea!!


And, for me, the best thing is that it's Bob's Red Mill and all the quality that comes along with that name.
