Then BzzAgent showed me the way, and let me try it for free!
Quaker Steel Cut 3-Minute Oatmeal. All the healthy and tasty benefits of steel cut oats, with a quick and easy prep. And yes, they are indeed tasty. I tried the Brown Sugar and Cinnamon flavor, and it was just the right combination of sweet and spicy. Doesn't it look delish?
Want to know something else you can do with this fantastic new treat?
You can make yourself a personal-sized cookie. No, for real.
I was inspired by this recipe here that used regular instant oatmeal.
My exact recipe:
1 packet Quaker Steel Cut 3-Minute Oatmeal, Brown Sugar and Cinnamon flavor
1 TBP margarine, melted
2 TSP sugar
2 1/2 TSP applesauce
3 1/2 TBSP flour
Mix it up. I let the dough rest for a bit so that the oats could absorb some of the liquid ingredients.
Form it into a patty about 1/2 inch thick, and bake at 350 until firm. Bingo...a cookie that can be a healthy snack or even a breakfast on the go. This recipe lends itself to much variation as well...banana instead of applesauce, add raisins or other dried fruit, etc. It has a nice chewy texture and a real cinnamony cookie flavor, and the grains bake in smoothly, without grit.
However you use it, you won't be sorry...this oatmeal is truly delicious, and great for the whole family. Even my toddler adored it, and that's saying something. So if you don't believe me, believe the three-year-old that throws what she doesn't like.
I received free product from BzzAgent and Quaker for testing and review purposes. My opinions are my own.
