Thanks to an old coupon I got myself a bowl of Amy’s oats on the cheap to try out 🙂
I know I’ve said I’m not a huge fan of instant oats, but I thought I’d give the frozen variety a try and see what I thought.
Well for starters, four minutes cooking time? That provides no benefit to me, except I don’t have to empty my whole cupboard to assemble my own bowl of goodies.
i wasn’t overly impressed with the first bite. It was a little sweet tasting to me, and I don’t like sweet in my oats.
However, once I added the magic ingredient (peanut butter) I have to say the bowl won me over.
It was pretty good- dense and chewy, and definitely satisfied my hunger. I wasn’t sure it would judging from the size, but it did. And I liked the texture!
Now, would I buy it again? Mm probably not unless I had another coupon that made it almost free. I can put my own oats together, cooked and all, in the same amount of time.
The best benefit? No stubborn oat-scrubbing of the bowl required. I hate how oatmeal turns into instant cement on the side of the bowl. 😦
