Start Your Day the Heart Healthy Way with Quaker Steel Cut Oats

Start Your Day the Heart Healthy Way with Quaker Steel Cut Oats

Disclosure: I was provided a box of Steel Cut Oatmeal from BzzAgent in order to facilitate this review, however, all opinions are 100% my own.

There’s nothing better than a bowl of hot cereal on a cold winter’s morning and I love starting my day the heart healthy way with Steel Cut Oatmeal from Quaker.


I don’t understand why, but most mornings I am rushing and running late… however, once I get downstairs, it’s much less stress because of this convenient breakfast cereal. I’ll put a pack of Steel Oats into a microwave-safe bowl, pour in 2/3 cup of water, stir and then microwave for 2 minutes. Once it’s done I’ll add dried raisins or cranberries or other fresh fruits and in less than 15 minutes I am out the door – full of energy and fiber and ready for my long commute to work.

Quaker Steel Cut Oats

Quaker Steel Cut oatmeal comes in Blueberries & Cranberries and Brown Sugar and Cinnamon which is my favorite flavor because it’s not too sweet and it only has 180 calories per serving with 3g fiber. This heart healthy cereal is a quick and easy breakfast choice for my busy morning whether I’m at home or at work, sometimes I’ll throw a pack in my tote bag to eat in the office.
