Boring Oats No More! Try #McCannsIrishOats

Ever since I discovered Steel Cut Oatmeal, I haven’t gone back. Gone are the days of bland oatmeal! I only ate oatmeal when I wanted to eat better and the other choice was a greasy bacon, egg and cheese on a bagel. Yep, the choice was obvious if I didn’t want to have a heart attack any time soon. I kinda got use to the bland flavor and it was simply a thing I needed to do every morning – eat a better-for-you breakfast. Checked that off the list! Then, on a road trip that landed us staying at a cute little bed and breakfast in South Carolina a couple of years ago, I was introduced to McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal®. I was hooked from the first bite! It was so rich in flavor, with their unique, nutty taste. I could not believe it was oatmeal! While the host couldn’t exactly tell me how it was better, it just was and I had to know how and why.

McCannsBoxI learned McCann’s Irish Oatmeal is made from 100 percent whole grain Irish oats and minimally processed. That made this mom super happy. With 2 kids with severe food allergies, it is super important to me to know that the food I am serving them is minimally processed. Even better is that McCann’s Irish Oatmeal has earned its first Non-GMO (“genetically modified organisms”) Certification from the Non-GMO Project for three of its core products: the McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal in the 28 oz. Tin, McCann’s Quick & Easy Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal in the 24 oz. Canister and McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal Quick Cooking Rolled Oats in the 16 oz. Box.

I learned that this artisanal brand sources their Irish Oats from small-size fields, which add to consistently high-oat quality. McCann’s takes pride in their oats. All parts of the Argonomy Program designed specifically for the McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal brand are inspected by personnel from leading performance nutrition and ingredients group, Glanbia (http://www.glanbia.com/). All the oats grown are delivered green (un-dried) from the combine to the intake; all trailers are cleaned prior to harvest. Production of McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal® is never outsourced to a third-party drying facility to ensure their product is only the best. All these extra steps McCann’s Irish Oatmeal takes to ensure their product is top notch makes this mom feel super safe.

McCannsIrishOatsSo here’s the catch. Making Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal that tastes that good takes time. Traditional Steel Cut Oats can take up to 30 minutes to cook. In my busy busy household with many busy busy people, that does not work, unless you are making McCann’s Quick Cooking Rolled Oats. In less than 2-3 minutes (in the microwave) you have delicious, piping hot McCann’s Irish Oatmeal with all it’s delicious, nutty goodness. My kids love throwing in all their favorite toppings. For my boys, they love cherries and brown sugar, while my daughter (sitting away from her brothers) loves candied walnuts and raisins.

Want to give oatmeal another go?! I’m giving away a $25 giftcard for one lucky person to try McCann’s Irish Oatmeal for themselves! Not only is it robust in nutty flavor, it’s the better-for-you choice to start every day off. Enter BELOW!
