Eeek! Back to school is coming up fast which means for our house mornings are crazy and there is no time for a bacon and eggs type breakfast but I still want something healthy, filling and yummy for the kids. My kids love oatmeal so when Better Oats contacted me about their steel cut oats and then mentioned they came in my kids favorite flavor I said yes to them sending me some.
In the past I have stayed away from steel cut oats because they take so long to make (30 minutes is too long to be cooking before the kids go off to school in the morning) but the ones from Better Oats take just 2.5 minutes! That I can handle 😉
They give kids and adults a great start to the morning on top of tasting great, all of the steel cut flavor varieties are made with flaxseed and carry the 100% Whole Grain Stamp from the Whole Grains Council. They also provide good sources of fiber and ALA omega-3 and are considered heart healthy.
They come in 3 flavors:
- maple and brown sugar
- apples and cinnamon (my kids favorite)
You can purchase them in local retailers near you.
