Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Bob’s Red Mill Extra-Thick Rolled Oats (Oatmeal)

Bob's Red Mill extra-thick rolled oats Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks is a blog feature where I spotlight products that really wow me. These are not to be confused with product reviews, where a PR person sends something in the mail and the blogger talks about how well he or she liked it. Although I do occasionally (but rarely) accept new products to sample, my picks are products I purchase myself, and happily buy over and over again. It’s been a while since I featured anything new, but I started thinking about these extra-thick rolled oats when Utah food bloggers Vanessa and Maria were both talking about oatmeal on Twitter recently. I’ve been eating this extra-thick oatmeal from Bob’s Red Mill for weekday breakfasts for the last few months, so I decided it really should be added to my list of picks.

Oatmeal is one of the world’s healthiest foods, and it’s a great South Beach Diet breakfast after phase one. My usual weekday breakfast is Alanna’s Peanut Butter Oatmeal, made in the microwave (and I confess, usually eaten in the car on the way to school.) I was introduced to this way of eating oatmeal with peanut butter stirred into it by Alanna. I liked eating oatmeal with peanut butter even before I discovered the extra-thick oatmeal, but now the extra-thick rolled oats are the only kind I buy.

Shown in the photo above is the 32 oz. size of these extra-thick rolled oats, which is the size I started buying when I realized how much I liked it. It also comes in a 16 oz. size if you’d like a smaller size to try. In Utah I can find this product at Smiths Marketplace or Whole Foods, and you can buy Bob’s Red Mill Extra Thick Rolled Oats at Amazon.com if you can’t find it where you live.

  1. They aren't anywhere close to $10 a bag in my store. I think they are about $4.00 a bag for this big size.
