Bob's Red Mill Oat Bran Hot Cereal




It is always fun for me to discover a new hot cereal. Hot cereal is one of my favorite ways to start the morning. I found Bob's Red Mill High Fiber Oat Bran Hot Cereal. It is loaded with fiber 7 grams of per serving. It also has 7 grams of protein. I made it this morning for breakfast and it was delicious. It has a slight nutty and wonderful texture to it. It left me with a very satisfied feeling. It is a great way to start your day. Yum! This is also a great cereal to sprinkle on top of foods to add fiber it would be a great addition to greek yogurt. I also made bran muffins out of it.

  1. Umm, what's the point of the coconut oil? It does not transfer coconut flavonoids and you aren't toasting anything so...
