Well, howdy friends.
I’ve got a fun opportunity for you today!
Have you heard of Quaker before?
Have you been living under a rock?
I have been using Quaker Oats in my recipes for years because they taste great! My kids love a good bowl of oatmeal in the morning, especially when it has some of their favorite goodies mixed in 🙂
WELL, Quaker is on the hunt to find America’s next great oatmeal flavor. They have lots of flavors already, but they’re looking for the next big thing! Here comes the Bring Your Best Bowl contest!
This contest is celebrating the versatility of oatmeal and all the ways to enjoy it by inviting you lovely people to submit your most inspired oatmeal flavors using 2-5 ingredients for a chance to win $250,000, and have your combination brought to life as Quaker’s newest oatmeal flavor.
In celebration of this contest, I am going to share with you one of my new favorite Oatmeal combos I have come to LOVE!
Here’s how to make my Caramel Coconut Cream Oatmeal:
Start by microwaving some Quaker Quick 1-Minute Oats with some milk and a pinch of salt. This should take only a minute or two. Super speedy.
THEN! Add on a dollop of plain greek yogurt, toasted coconut and caramel sauce!! That’s it.
It’s so dreamy, you guys. And takes less than 5 minutes to make. #winning
