How Do You Make Trader Joe's Organic Oatmeal Cups?
These are so easy to make! Just add boiling water and let it stand for three minutes, or you can add water and heat your cup in the microwave. Perfect for a fast and filling breakfast.
What Do Trader Joe's Organic Oatmeal Cups Look Like Inside and How Do They Taste?
Here's what the Organic Classic Oatmeal Cup looks like when you peel off the lid. If you look closely, you'll see whole flax seeds and tiny chia seeds. To be honest, I was hoping to see more, but you can always add more if you want.
Since this oatmeal is unsweetened, it tastes just how you'd expect — very plain with a tiny bit of texture from the seeds. The Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cup also tastes just as you'd expect — sweet with a subtle maple flavor.
Both cups tasted great with some healthy additions. I added fresh raspberries, slivered almonds, and cinnamon, but you could add other seeds, nuts or nut butter, fresh, frozen, or dried fruit, shredded coconut, protein powder, or a few chocolate chips.
How Much Do the Organic Classic Oatmeal Cups Cost?
At just $1.69 per cup, these are pretty affordable, and good to keep on hand for quick breakfasts. I love that they're nonperishable and easy to pack in your gym bag, on weekend trips, or in your desk drawer at work.
