Starbucks Oatmeal

This semester, I am eating breakfast on the go almost every morning at my job, at my internship site, or at school before class. I’ve even eaten breakfast on the T! My staples are Overnight Oats, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and yogurt parfaits. Much to my delight, Starbucks sent me a coupon to try their oatmeal. A free, hot breakfast? Sounds great!

The oatmeal itself is plain, made with water. But the barista told me he’d give me “the works” which includes a packet of mixed nuts, a packet of dried fruit, and a packet of brown sugar.

I used all of the dried fruit, about half the nuts, and a sprinkle of brown sugar. The texture was different than stove top, but this was still a pretty good bowl of oats. With these nutritional stats, this is a convenient and healthy whole grain breakfast. Of course, I’d prefer fresh fruit over dried, but Starbucks does sell bananas, so that is an option.

And of course, you can easily get a dairy serving with a beverage. Check out this post for great tips on how to customize a drink to meet your needs.

  1. Starbucks oatmeal is my on-the-go breakfast choice. And I always get it with a banana! Sometimes I don't get any toppings at all, and just mix it with a packet of peanut/almond butter 🙂

  2. @Nanc- I don't remember seeing the price on the board, but people have said it's either $2.45 or $2.95. More expensive unfortunately than that muffins, which are much less healthy and filling!@Bianca – Thanks for your comment, always fun to see another local blogger!
