Eco-Planet gluten free instant oatmeal

 I happened upon this product in the grocery store the other day and I had to get it! This is the first time I have seen GF Instant Oats in the market - I wasn't in a big grocery store, but this market/butcher called McKinnon's - I think there are a few in the NH/MA areas, but I was in Salem, NH.

This is also a new brand for me, haven't had any of their other products, but here is a link to their site.

Anyway - so exciting, I love oatmeal, but hate making it - actually, I hate having to clean the pot afterwards -- so instant is perfect for me.

I really liked this! I added some cut-up apples one day, and just ate it plain the other times. This oatmeal is kind of mushy - which I really like. I know some people like their oatmeal a little grainier, or more oat-like, but I much prefer to it be like mush - I don't know why, it sounds gross just typing it, but that's how I like it.

What's also great is it's only 145 calories per packet (not including milk if you add that instead of water) and 5g of fiber! Nice!

Big fan -- will buy this again. I have been looking for Glutenfreeda's gf instant oats, but haven't seen them anywhere yet.

I bought this the other day and tried it today. I'm on the fence, I like plain oatmeal. This has a lot of other grains in it, which is healthy. I think I just might have to get used to it. I'm used to quaker oats, loaded with sugar! I might try adding chopped up apples too.

I LOVE this too! Been using the Maple and cinnamon packets with Bob's Red mill GF oatmeal to make a yummy apple crisp for a few years now. Even non-GF tasters like it!
