Hearty Meal in a Cup + {Giveaway}

Here lately it seems like I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off.  And I love it.  I enjoy working my brain, keeping busy and getting in all that extra walking.  So good for my body.  But, running around also means not getting a good meal when needed.

So how about an easy and simple breakfast.  I love these new Nature Valley Bistro Cups made with oatmeal.  They come in two flavors of Apple Cinnamon Almond and Brown Sugar Pecan.  I’m a little partial to brown sugar and pecans.  Or as we say it in the south – shuga!

I love how you make them using your favorite brewing machine, which makes it doubly easy for a quick and really filling breakfast before you head out of the door.

Open the pre-measured oatmeal packet and poor in a mug.  Insert the flavor cup in the brewing machine and select the coffee cup size amount of water.

In just a couple of minutes you have a hot breakfast. I throw a few blueberries on top to finish it off.  I wish the picture above was scratch and sniff because that brown sugar smell is intoxicating.

Now that is fast and convenient!!  The kids would find this easy to make too.  If you have some sturdy plastic mugs, wouldn’t this be great to make and let the kids eat on the way to school or other activity?

Right now there is a $3.00 off coupon at Publix to use in your next purchase.  Love the savings.

So how about grabbing a mug the next time you want to #BrewYourBreakfast.

Quick.  Simple.  Tastes Great.

  1. I had no idea that the “brewing machines” could be used for anything besides hot beverages! This IS a quick and easy breakfast-on-the-go.

  2. These are so cool, Tammy! I had no idea they even existed. Thanks for the introduction :). I just got my machine all cleaned up and working again. It got a little yucky from lack of use and water left in it. I’ll definitely have to try these! That brown sugar pecan looks amazing.

  3. I really need to eat more balanced things for breakfast and always eat the same things, so this is really helpful. It sounds yummy and definitely worth a try. thanks for sharing.

  4. We have to pick? Can we pick both? A lot of mornings I would absolutely grab the apple cinnamon almond because cinnamon is so uplifting in the morning. But I love Pecan Pie and I bet that the Pecan and Brown Sugar smells like fresh baked pecan pie. Could you use an extra large coffee cup and mix both flavors together? Best of both worlds!

  5. It is hard to keep up sometimes and eating a good meal gets put on the back burner. I think these Bistro cups are a great idea.

  6. It looks really yummy! It’s so easy to do as well, really perfect as an easy go-to breakfast meal.

  7. Ooooo this sounds super yummy! I’m also loving how simple it is to make. So gotta give it a try!
