Better Oats Contest & Month Supply Giveaway

Better Oats is celebrating National Blueberry Month this July and we got to try the Blueberry Muffin instant oatmeal. I could smell the wonderful aroma of blueberry muffin coming through the house as my husband fixed a bowl. Heading to the kitchen I fixed my self a bowl of Better Oats Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal. Fast and easy to eat even on limited time in the mornings. A great tasting warm satisfying breakfast or snack.

If you have never used Better Oats you will see how simple it is. Open the pack and add to a bowl. Fill water to the dotted line on the pack. Then just pour over your bowl of Better Oats and microwave heat & serve. 2 minutes!!
