Nature’s Path Instant Oatmeal is Organic Convenience in Many Vegan Flavors

0

At various times in my life, instant oatmeal has been a breakfast staple. As a kid growing up in the rainy northwest, hot cereal was a delicious way to warm up on cold wet mornings. And then, as an adult, when I discovered Nature’s Path Instant Oatmeal, I was hooked again.

Tasting Notes for Nature’s Path Instant Oatmeal

This quick hot oatmeal is similar to Quaker, but with slightly more wholesome, certified organic ingredients. And unlike their big competitor, they don’t have any flavors with milk powder or other dairy ingredients. Every flavor of Nature’s Path Instant Oatmeal is dairy-free (upon last check)!

They also offer varieties that are not too high in sugars, and ones that are certified gluten-free. We like the flavors of the ones we’ve tried – they’re simple and have a nice balance of sweet and salt. My only wish is that there was just a little more in each packet. I often have to eat 1 1/2 packets, and my husband sometimes just eats two. A few of them are more like a snack than breakfast fuel.

If you try any of them, be sure to leave your rating and review below! I’ve included my notes on one of the flavors we’ve bought recently.

We really like these oatmeal packets, and buy them for travel – on sale when possible! We both like the Blueberry one, but it’s a little light. I often add more oats to make it more substantial.
