Quaker is a brand my family happens to LOVE, from their instant oatmeal for quick breakfasts on the go to their granola bars and cookies that the toddler loves for snack time. We always have one or more of their products on hand at any time because oatmeal is healthy snack and meal option. Did you know that a bowl of oatmeal made with milk has calcium from both, but also fiber and iron from the oatmeal and protein, potassium and vitamins D, A and B12 from milk?
Milk and Oatmeal go together like bread and butter and there are so many different ways to combine them that the possibilities are endless. Of course there is the traditional bowl of oatmeal, but have you considered muffins, cookies, or even scones? I wanted to combine the two with a new twist and whipped up a batch of Cinnamon Bun Scones while the toddler was in school and when she got home she had a hot, but protein packed snack waiting for her.

She inhaled them in record time and couldn’t stop saying how “yummy” they were, little does she know they contain oatmeal. Of course I had to give them a try and I could see why she gobbled them up so quickly, they tasted just like cinnamon rolls and you couldn’t even tell that they had good for you foods like oatmeal and milk.
Another reason I tend to favor Quaker is because they like to give back to the community and right now they have their #BetterTogether campaign going on with the Kroger Co. Family of Stores and they’re donating $25,000 to feed families in need by donating to Feeding America! Of course you can show your support by tweeting a picture of you and your family enjoying your oatmeal + milk creation by including @Quaker and #BetterTogether in your tweet!
