I participated in Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers and received McCann‘s Irish Oatmeal® products to facilitate my review.

I don’t know how it happened but the weather has turned the corner. We went from 100+ degree days to barely reaching 80, in a matter of days. It’s as if the weather is prepping us for back to school and for fall. 

One of the things that I have been trying to get together the past few weeks is quick and easy breakfasts for the kids. Something that can be made quickly but will fill them up for their school day. When I attended the Fancy Food Show, I was introduced to McCann’s Irish Oatmeal

Here is where I admit to you that I am not an oatmeal person. Well, scratch that. I wasn’t an oatmeal person. It was a texture thing. I would either make it too watery or too thick. Never just right. Well, the good people at McCann’s Irish Oatmeal helped this Goldilocks find her perfect oatmeal with their microwaveable cups that are quick and easy!

High quality Irish oats are combined with a special blend of ingredients to create a delicious hot breakfast dish, all packaged into a convenient microwaveable single serve container. These are great to grab and go in the morning! But sometimes you need a little something more.

I took our favorite Banana Bread recipe and incorporated McCann’s Irish Steel Cut oats to bulk up our bread! This will keep the boys fuller and get them through their morning at school.
