Whether we are running late for school, heading to ballet or soccer practice, or we are on a family roadtrip, eating in the car just seems to happen. I wish I could say I am the type of mom who always wakes up before the kids, and prepares a lovely full breakfast before school each day. My mom is that kind of grandma, but I’m just not there yet. I stay up too late, and wake up too late, so our mornings are often rushed. I am always looking for healthier quick and easy, or on-the-go breakfast and snacking options. You moms out there know how hairy our day can get! I was excited when I heard about the new Honey Bunches of Oats Breakfast Biscuits, and even more thrilled when I read the nutrition label.
Honey Bunches of Oats has always been a family favorite cereal, and now they are out of the bowl and into a biscuit. Mornings and after-school snacks just got easier and healthier with these 100% whole grain biscuits. Each pouch contains 4 biscuits with 30g of whole grain! My kiddos have gotten to try all 3 flavors: Honey Roasted, Strawberry and Chocolate Chip, and my kids are split between strawberry and chocolate chip as their favorite.
If we are really in a rush then I serve the biscuits alone, and sometimes in the car on the way to or from school and other activities. If you have a little more time, add a serving of your favorite low fat yogurt and fruit for a balanced breakfast. Now back to that nutrition label – I am happy to report there is no high fructose corn syrup or artificial ingredients. I actually recognized and could pronounce all of the ingredients! The two sweeteners used are sugar and tapioca syrup. I have read some positive things about tapioca syrup.
The new Honey Bunches of Oats Breakfast Biscuits are easy, nutritious and delicious. The only thing I wish was a little different was for them to stay together a little better. They break fairly easy, but they don’t crumble and make a huge mess – which is fantastic for car snacking.
