I recently decided that I wanted this blog to be a mix of gluten free recipes, restaurant reviews, and product reviews. Yesterday, I reviewed my favorite cupcake mix, Williams-Sonoma Gluten Free Red Velvet Cupcake Mix. Today, I am reviewing my favorite gluten free product of 2013 -- Bakery on Main Blueberry Scone Oatmeal.
I first tried Bakery on Main Instant Oatmeal after winning 3 packets in a Twitter contest. I liked the carrot cake and strawberry shortcake, but instantly fell in love with the blueberry scone, and ordered 6 boxes from amazon.com. It is made with whole grain certified gluten free oats, chia, flax, amaranth & quinoa. It's not only gluten free, but also free of dairy, casein, and GMOs.
Each packet of oatmeal contains 200 calories. I usually add 1/2 cup of water and microwave it on high for 60 seconds. I sometimes add a little milk after I cook it, especially if I think it has gotten too thick.
The oatmeal already contains chia seeds and flax meal, but I add an additional 1/2 tablespoon of chia and 1/2 tablespoon of flax to my cooked oatmeal for extra fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids.
I also love to add fresh strawberries or raspberries to my blueberry scone oatmeal. This oatmeal has become my favorite breakfast during the school/work week.
Bakery on Main Instant Oatmeal is available in the following flavors: apple pie, strawberry shortcake, traditional, blueberry scone, carrot cake, and maple multigrain muffin. I recently won 6 boxes of Bakery on Main instant oatmeal in a Simple Side of Life giveaway. I am looking forward to trying all the different flavors after it arrives.

Locally, I have seen a couple of flavors of Bakery on Main Instant Oatmeal at Chamberlin's in Winter Park.
