Moms Chocolate Oatmeal

Who else would make an amazing oatmeal that's chocolate, but MOM?! I actually ran across these doing my weekly shopping at Wegman's 2 weeks ago and decided that at $1.99 for a 5 pack, how could I say no? Mom's Best Dark Chocolate Instant Oatmeal practically begged me to buy it! It's all natural, oatmeal (good for me) and chocolate! Done deal!

I actually have been making "chocolate oatmeal" for a few years. One of my favorite ways to get some "naughty chocolate" into my tummy, while losing weight, was to create my own version of chocolate oatmeal using some plain ol' Quaker quick oats packs and a packet of sugar free hot cocoa mix. But with my changes towards a "cleaner eating" style, I had to give up basically everything "sugar free" or with added "fake" sugars in them so there went my chocolate oatmeal in the morning!

Until now!

I finally made a bowl for breakfast the other day and I must confess this will be a staple in my cupboards now! I love the texture, the flavor is very real and it's all natural! The price comes out even friendlier than my original "homemade" version($1.99 for a box of 5.. that's 40 cents a serving), plus I'm now filling up my tummy with all natural products and not a bunch of chemicals! MUCH BETTER!

The nutritional numbers come out great too.
One serving/packet, prepared with water is 160 calories, 3g fiber and 2.5g fiber. On the Weight Watchers® point® system that comes out to 3 points® a bowl. Add a glass of OJ (1 cup) and you have a very filling and healthy breakfast for 5 points®. That should last you well into the late morning for sure!

Wish me luck on my journey to "eating clean" and  healthy!
