Start The Day Off Right With Better Oats: Blueberry Muffins Instant Oatmeal {Giveaway}

Like most families, oatmeal has become a staple food in our home. Not only does it taste great, but it really gets us going when we need some energy to get us through the day {and seriously, who couldn’t use more of that?}. Because it’s one of those meals that stick with you, Daddy can’t make it through a day without a big bowl of oatmeal to start it off.

To celebrate National Blueberry Month {which is July}, the great folks at Better Oats sent us some of their delicious Blueberry Muffin old fashioned instant oatmeal. They’re in a shelf-friendly package and also act as their own measuring cup!! I think that was our favorite feature of the process; being able to do everything with just a bowl and spoon – no extra utensils needed. All you need to do is pour the oatmeal into your bowl, fill the empty package to the fill like {which will be ½ cup of water}, then microwave for 2-minutes. There’s no easier way to get a nice, warm meal in the morning that will prepare you for anything the upcoming day has to bring.

As for the taste – delicious! It was creamier than normal instant oatmeal you buy in the stores. The smell of the blueberries is intoxicating and by the time the 2-minute microwaving time was up, the kitchen, dining room, AND living room had the pleasant aroma of blueberry muffins. Of course, Daddy was a little disappointed when I told him we weren’t having muffins, but when I told him that was the smell of his morning oatmeal, he perked right up.
