The name says it all! Your daily necessity. A delicious and nutritious nut and fruit medley with a cinnamon and "carmely" surprise......it's sooo good!
How to Prepare
1. SHAKE WELL
Make sure to shake the contents well to get all of the ingredients mixed.
2. ADD HOT WATER
Add hot water so that it is just above the oats about a quarter of an inch. If you like it a little more on the “wet” side then feel free to add more water to taste.
3. COVER WITH LID
I know that you just opened it but it is time to put the lid back on for a bit.
4. STEEP FOR 3 MINUTES
Let stand covered for 3 minutes to allow the water to be fully absorbed and the oats to soften. If you want a little more on the wet side there will still be a little water left, that's okay.
5. STIR WELL AND ENJOY!
Okay it is time to stir well and enjoy!
Our oats are custom milled. And that’s why our ingredient list doesn’t say “oats,” it says “groats!” No, that’s not a typo. Groats are the whole hulled grain. Groats include the cereal germ and fiber-rich bran portion as well as the endosperm, which is the usual product of milling. What does that mean? You are getting a larger, thicker, unbleached, whole oat that is not processed into “instant” oats. Bottom line? Our oatmeal is not soft and mushy! Like the chefs say, it’s “al dente!”
We are creating flavors never seen before in oatmeal, and we can’t tell you how fun it is! Oatmeal was one of those healthy American traditions that just grew old and boring. At Umpqua Oats we are making oatmeal fun, fast and convenient, without losing any of the healthfulness!
Seriously . . . we buy the best ingredients we can find, and you can tell as soon as you open the lid. There are all kinds of ways to reduce ingredient costs, such as buying broken nut fragments and adding fillers to extend volume. The only grain in Umpqua Oats is whole rolled oat
What is Umpqua?
We hear oomp-kah, oo-kwah, umk and kwum-pah. The P-Q combo really throws people.
Anyway - What is it?
"Umpqua" is a Native American word originally meaning "satisfied stomach!"
A little about us.
The girls did it. It was totally their idea. Mandy and Sheri had a major moment. You know . . . like an epiphany? One day they were talking about how nasty oatmeal packets are, when wham, out of nowhere, they decided to start an oatmeal company in Sheri’s kitchen!
Yep, you get the picture. Sheri, Mandy, the kids . . . pretty much everyone but us guys, all sprinkling ingredients into little cups. Did we think they were crazy? Well, let’s not go there. But, you gotta hand it to ‘em. Creating the best oatmeal in the world took a lot of time and patience. And before they knew it, everyone at home in the Umpqua Valley, had heard of Sheri & Mandy’s “reinvention” of oatmeal.
Today, Umpqua Oats is one of the fastest growing food companies in America! And oh yeah. The girls got the last laugh, because we are working for them! So every time you see the new oatmeal with the funny name, think of us! And know that we are having a great time making the healthiest and best quality oatmeal on the planet.
