One of the things I love about the Bakery on Main instant oatmeal is that while it has a lot of flavor, it is more subtle because it is not very sweet. Â You definitely don’t feel like you’re eating dessert for breakfast, which is how I sometimes feel with oatmeal. Â To be honest, it’s what I sometimes want, which is why I sometimes add a little extra sugar to make it sweeter and brighten the flavors. Â Most of the time, though, I’m perfectly content with searching out the flavors. Â It also helps if you don’t eat it when it’s super hot. Â :O Â In fact, the cooler it is (and/or perhaps the longer it has melded), the more pronounced the flavors are.
The blueberry scone really does taste like a blueberry pastry (although not nearly as sweet and with a lot of oatmeal pastry). Â The carrot cake, I have decided, is my favorite. Â There are little chunks of carrots and raisins. Â It tastes just like a healthy carrot cake that my mom would make, and if I add just a little sugar, it tastes like a carrot cake I would make. Â 🙂
One of the things that are different about Bakery on Main’s instant oatmeal (and that I love) is that it also has amaranth, quinoa, chia, and flax. Â You get a whole bunch of goodness in one bowl of oatmeal.
If you’re searching for a new quick, but hearty, hot breakfast, you might want to give Bakery on Main a try.
