I received a new product to try from BzzAgent. This is a Quaker Steel-Cut Quick 3 Minute Oatmeal with Blueberries and Cranberries.
It has 170 calories per packet, 3 g of fiber, 12 g of sugar, 210 ml of sodium, 0.5 g of saturated fat and it is certified as a Heart Healthy Oatmeal. The ingredients: Whole grain steel-cut oats, sugar, dried blueberries, dried cranberries, salt, natural flavor. Not too many ingredients, it does have some sugar but other than that it looks pretty good.
I followed the instructions on the back of the box:
- Empty single packet in a microwave-safe bowl
- Add up to 2/3 cup of water.Stir.
- Put it in a microwave for 2.5 to 3 minutes
While it cooks let’s see what it says on the back of the box.
Fuel Up With a Heartier Taste and Texture
Quaker quick and easy Steel Cut Oatmeal is 100% steel cut oats, expertly cut to cook quickly while still preserving the hearty texture and rich, nutty taste of the whole oat – and we combined that with delicious real blueberries and cranberries. Now you can enjoy the robust texture and taste of steel cut oatmeal on even the busiest mornings.
You can see enough pieces of blueberries and cranberries for oatmeal to be eaten as it is. I had a little time that morning so I added some blackberries for additional taste and nutritional value.You can use any berries that you have on hand.
This oatmeal has a nice nutty flavor which is not overpowering, just a touch , it also has a nice thick texture. It’s a little too sweet but if you like your oatmeal sweet it is definitely something to choose for breakfast. I also like a nice flavor combination. The blueberries and cranberries go really well together. I think in the future I will use almond milk instead of water but it’s just my preference.
I will definitely add Quaker Steel-Cut Quick 3-minute Oatmeal to my breakfast choices, especially on those days when I want a quick and healthy breakfast. I highly recommend it.
I really enjoy this complimentary product which BzzAgent so graciously sent to me for an honest review #GotItFree. I highly recommend it.
