Express microwavable oatmeal cups - unsweetened?

slicknick27 Feb 9, 2011 09:16 AM

So I've seen the Quaker Express Oatmeal cups and I thought they would be a great way to enjoy some oatmeal while on the run at school. You just add water and microwave and eat right from the cup. However, Quaker doesn't make these express cups in an unsweetened/regular variety.

Does anyone know of express/instant oatmeal that you can microwave and eat out of the container it comes in, with no added junk? (just the oats)

    Hi Slicknick,

    I don't know how long it takes to microwave the kind you're talking about but plain old regular Quaker Oats microwaves in about two minutes (depends on how much you make).

    Get some Glad containers. Put in your oats before you leave for school, salt if you want it. When you're ready to eat, add water and microwave away.

    'Course you can add your own junk if you like. I like dried fruit and nuts.
