Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola: Heat & Eat!

Disclosure: We received a free product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.  Bzz Agent post.

Add 1/4 c. milk, heat for 25 seconds, and voila'!
Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola really is delicious!

I'm all for trying new things for breakfast, and warm oatmeal with a crunch? Yeah, that's right up my alley. Add Cranberries and Almonds and it doesn't get much better than that for me.  So, this morning, for breakfast, we had Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola: Cranberry Almond. It was goooood!! I love that it warm, little man loved that it resembled cereal, and everyone in the house loved the flavor!!

A lot of times breakfast food leaves you only very temporarily satisfied, and then you're looking at the clock, waiting for lunch time to kick in.  Not so with this Warm & Crunchy Granola.  It gives you that warm satisfying feel of oatmeal (you feel pleasantly, not overly full), and that sticks with you for quite a long time!!  I had my bowl 3+ hours ago and I still feel pleasantly full.  It's nice that it's warm too...a great way to get a warm breakfast in the kids without taking up a lot of time (25 seconds to heat & eat is fast!).

I support this product completely, and we will definitely be trying the other flavors. It's warm, but still crunchy, fast to make, full of good-for-you ingredients, and it's delicious. What's not to love?  Quaker also makes this in Apple Cinnamon and Honey Almond flavors.

You can learn more about the Warm & Crunchy Granola by visiting the Quaker website.  You can also follow along on Facebook, G+,  and/or Twitter.

I'm confused... is it cereal/granola or oatmeal? Seems like it behaves like both. good for cold mornings.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I think my boys might enjoy this.

alissa apel said...

Oatmeal is something I love! I'm hating that I can't eat it right now. We're slowing adding some foods back into our diet. Someday I'll eat it again. Yummy!

mail4rosey said...

It's warm like oatmeal, and crunchy like cereal/granola. Def. worth a try, it's delicious.

Ai Sakura said...

Oooo it's been some time since I had a nice, warm bowl of Quaker oats. We like to add some sugar to ours :P

Janine Huldie said...

Sounds delicious and we love Quaker products for breakfast here, too. My girls loved their chocolate chip oatmeal, but they discontinued it. Might have to look into this for them. Thanks for sharing, Rosey!! :)

This sounds delicious! I bet my son would like it for breakfast.

Chavonne Harvey said...

I like foods that keep me feeling pleasantly full for a few hours and only 25 seconds to heat? that's my kind of convenience. I wanna try the Honey Almond.

Heck, this sounds like something I would enjoy for breakfast. Yes indeed.

It does stay crunchy! I'm going to go Google MRE oatmeal now. I haven't heard of it.

mail4rosey said...

Happy day to you too, Sandee. :)

Colette S said...

We love the oatmeal. So many ways to do it. The kids love when I make it, so I'm sure they'd want to try this too!

Julie Corbisiero said...

This breakfast sounds really good and I'll have to give it a try sometime! Have a nice day! 😀

Kecia said...

I cannot handle straight oatmeal - I always have to add fruit or syrup to mine. I'd like to try this though, since it already has some additional flavors in it!

Theresa Mahoney said...

I received a box from Bzzagent too. I haven't gotten around to trying any yet, but it really does look delicious!

WordsPoeticallyWorth said...

Sounds nice. Glad you enjoyed it.

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

Sherry Ellis said...

We've tried this at my pad, and it is really good!

I found you through Pat Hatt's blog. You were featured over there, today!

Susan Kane said...

My children (years ago) hated plain oatmeal. With the new crunchy oatmeal, they (grownups) now love it. I wish there had been more options then. Dried cranberries and crunchy nuts were not found in the markets.

Karen Koblan said...

This sounds really good! I always need new breakfast ideas!

Growing Up Madison said...

I love quaker products. Don't think I've seen this one at the commissary as yet but I'll have to take a look next time I'm there.

I do BzzAgent too. Love all the products I get from them. :)

This looks really good and I know I would've enjoyed trying this out through BzzAgent.

We have something similar to this for breakfast, but the next time I'm shopping I'll have to look for this specifically. Seem like a great breakfast meal that I can feel good about giving my kids.

Sounds good. Tasting and for you - a double win.

I've heard of this, and think that I've seen it at my grocery store, but haven't tried it yet.

I have seen this as well at the grocery store but wasn't sure exactly the texture of it. Thanks for sharing now I know ~Amanda

Jennifer Zimmerman said...

I wonder if I could get my picky kids to eat this. They do like granola.

Nichol said...

I would love this! I'm a big fan of warm cereals and added crunch makes it that much better.

Keikilani Jackson said...

I think that I would really like this. I am not a huge fan of hot oatmeal because it's too mushy. The crunch would be awesome.

Nana said...

I have actually had the Cranberry Almond Crunchy granola that you reviewed and I agree - it's very delicious AND filling. I am usually crashing around 10am needing something to pick me up until lunch time but on the days I eat this cereal, it keeps me full longer. Thanks for your review!

becca said...

O yay bring on the oatmeal. So good and good for you. We like ours with brown sugar.

Lawna Noe said...

I can totally relate to waiting for lunch time because breakfast didn't fully fill me up. Sounds like this crunchy granola oatmeal would do the trick!

Pam said...

This sounds really tasty! I have always liked Quaker brand products.

Rachee said...

This sounds like a yummy breakfast. I love oatmeal and a crunch and this sounds like it fits the bill.

I haven't tried this one yet. Does the apple have nuts in it?

I have oatmeal all the time, and usually add almonds and cranberries.

Anonymous said...

I am so addicted to my Quaker Oatmeal with apples and cinnamon I am not ready to give it up even if they come out with a new product. It has been my favorite for over a year! Maybe my boys would like this, they are not as crazy about oatmeal as I am .

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

These are delicious and hearty breakfast options to help fuel kids in the morning before heading out to school.

Kay Adeola said...

I love eating oatmeal for breakfast. It's especially good with crunchy stuff like nuts on top.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I do a lot of oatmeal for breakfast, especially in the winter and I love it warmed. The crunchy sounds very good... and hearty.

Autumn said...

That sounds delicious! I typically shy away from oatmeal because it's too mushy for my taste, but this sounds like a textural delight.

Helene Bludman said...

I love oatmeal and I love granola, so this is going on my list for sure.

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

Tee Mccluskey said...

This sounds so good, I am going to look at my local store for this! YUM

Mandy Carter said...

I have seen this and wondered if it was good. I like to stick to plain oats with water and peanut butter mixed in.

Annie said...

I haven't had oatmeal in ages! I love that it's just heat up & eat :)

Heather @ The Beating Hearth said...

This looks so good and I'm sure my oldest would LOVE it. In school they were talking about their favorite cereals and her favorite is the kind she only gets at my Mom's house 5 hours away, but she couldn't remember what it was called and told her teacher that she was sure I didn't know and her Grandma lives too far away to call. When I heard that, I asked her to describe it to me. It's granola. Mama knows everything, she should know that by now.

Karen Glatt said...

I love eating oatmeal and with cinnamon and brown sugar. I like this warm crunchy Granola! I am going to give it a try!

Oatmeal is a good snack too. I eat it in the afternoon instead of the vending machine.

Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) said...

definitely weird that it's both granola and oatmeal. Interesting for sure and makes me want to try it

Lolo @ Crazy About My Baybah said...

I like that it is warm and crunchy. Worth a try!

Amanda McMahon said...

I think this looks like a great snack for afterschool. My kids usually need something but I'm running out of ideas it seems.

Le-an Lai Lacaba said...

I'd love to try both. Soft and crunchy at the same time should be a frenzy for my mouth!

TerinAleah said...

We love Quaker oatmeal, so we'll have to try this! :)

Dina said...

Wanda (A Book Lover's Retreat) said...

I have been trying to eat more oatmeal. I have never been too fond of it but I found a recipe for baked oatmeal I love. This actually looks and sounds really good though. I'll have to try it. Thanks for sharing! :)
