The Secret To Nutritious Oatmeal With Fruit

 The Soulfull Project single serving hot cereal

The oatmeal with fruit recipes on this list are the perfect way to add a little flavor and nutrition to your wake-up routine. If you’re looking for a way to pack even more goodness into your morning meal without destroying the flavor and nutrition, we’ve got the solution for you.

Substitute hot cereal instead of oatmeal and you’ll enjoy even more vitamins, minerals, and nutrients than you thought possible in something that tastes so good!

When you use hot cereal as one of the ingredients in your oatmeal with fruit recipes, you get all the benefits of a wide variety of grains, including:

  • Rye
  • Barley
  • Oats
  • Quinoa
  • Chia
  • Flax

That makes good nutritional sense.

Plus, it’s still “oatmeal” because it contains oats, just with a nutritious kick from the other tasty grains.

And by varying the flavor of the hot cereal you use — such as The Soulfull Project’s Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry Almond, Brown Sugar Pecan, Toasted Coconut, or Cinnamon Spice — you can whip up a batch of oatmeal with fruit that even the pickiest eater among you will love.

Plus, for every serving you purchase, The Soulfull Project will donate a serving of our hot cereal to a food bank in your area.
