The aroma that arises when you pour “hot milk or boiling water” into a bowl of this oatmeal, from the Quaker Protein series, is quite delectable. It smells like fresh-baked soft and gooey Cranberry Almond oatmeal cookies, but the taste is a comparative letdown. It’s not as sweet as you expect or “delicious” as the box claims.
That’s a drawback of trying to balance tasty and healthy, but there’s a way to make eating this and other run-of-the-mill oatmeals an enjoyable experience. Add just enough bowling water to make it wet, stir, make a milk well, pour in cold milk and eat mainly the milk with a spoon while scooping in bits of warm oatmeal.
