Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Oatmeal

by Anne Paddock

Oatmeal can be boring; why else would grocery stores offer so many flavored varieties in the cereal aisle? The problem with flavored oatmeal is that most are loaded with sugar, sweeteners or additives that don’t provide any nutritional benefit beyond raising the caloric and sugar content. Purely Elizabeth (of granola fame) recently launched four new ancient grain oatmeal and hot cereals:

  • Ancient Grain Oatmeal
  • Ancient Grain Oatmeal – Organic Cranberry Pumpkin Seed
  • Ancient Grain Oatmeal – Organic Apple Cinnamon Pecan
  • Ancient Grain Hot Cereal – Organic 6-Grain

that takes a bowl of oatmeal from good to great without adding any sugar, artificial flavors, colors, or additives. They are quite simply all about ingredients which include:

  • organic gluten-free oats
  • organic buckwheat groats
  • organic millet
  • organic kaniwa (a small grain-like food from Peru)
  • organic amaranth or organic amaranth puffs
  • organic flax seeds
  • organic quinoa or organic quinoa flakes
  • organic chia seeds
  • organic hemp seeds
  • organic pumpkin seeds
  • organic dried cranberries
  • organic dried apples
  • organic pecans
  • organic cinnamonPurely-Elizabeth-New-Oatmeal-Image

Each serving (1/3 cup of dry cereal) contains 160-170 calories, has 7 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, no sodium and 0-2 grams of sugar, depending on the flavor. The oatmeal cooks up in 1-2 minutes while the hot 6-Grain cereal cooks in 15-20 minutes.  When cooked, transfer the oatmeal or cereal to a bowl and sweeten as desired with fresh or dried fruit, maple syrup, coconut sugar, crunchy granola, and if desired, peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, or Nuttzo. The possibilities really are endless.oatmeal-bags-with-oatmeal-bowl-raspberries
