Recently we were given the opportunity to try a new (to us) product: Straw Propeller oatmeal. These are cute little single-serving cups of oatmeal that come in gourmet flavors. They’re gluten-free and easy to prepare. Curious?
Straw Propeller Gourmet Foods
I loved the idea of having some gourmet, healthy oatmeal that we could have around for quick snacks or breakfasts. Now, it isn’t soaked, obviously, so if you struggle with oats — you may need to adapt this (I suggest adding 1 tbsp. of buckwheat flour or whole wheat flour and 1/2 c. water the night before and let it soak before eating). If you don’t have a problem with oats, it can be made in 5 minutes.
My husband was the one who ate most of these, because he doesn’t have an issue with oats and was always looking for a fast snack or breakfast. He told me he enjoyed them, liked all the flavors, but that they were often a bit too sweet for him. We don’t eat a lot of sugar here, so if you don’t either you might find the same thing. If you’re looking for a healthier substitute for the store-bought “instant oatmeal” packages, though, you might really love these!
The ingredients in these are pretty healthy. Here are the ingredients from the Fruit & Nuts flavor:
- Rolled Oats
- Dehydrated Sugar Cane Juice
- Sea Salt
Now, you should be aware that some flavors (but obviously not all) do contain soy lecithin. I would not personally choose those flavors because I am avoiding soy. The flavors that don’t contain any soy are:
- Fruit & Nuts
- Curry Up
- Cranberry O’Nut
- Cherry & Chia
- Apricot Abundance
- Lavender & Lemon
- Oh, My! Pumpkin Pie
- Strawberry Jungle
- Wholly Oats
So, over half of the flavors — and some pretty unique ones! — do not contain any form of soy or other “compromise” ingredients.
These are a little on the pricey side, but if you’re looking for something easy and quick for school year breakfasts, or if you’re traveling and don’t want to stoop to fast food — these could be made easily enough in any hotel room. They’re great when you just need something now and don’t want to do any preparation.
