A Good Buy & Delicous BreakfastNov 03, 2006
By M. A. Hodge
I use oat bran both as a hot cereal and in baking. Bob's Red Mill Organic Oat Bran Cereal is delicious as a hot cereal (especially when cooked in milk rather than water) and ordering it online from Amazon is cheaper than buying Quaker Oat Bran in my local supermarket (if I buy it with enough other stuff in my order to qualify for Super Saver Shipping). However, if you are using it for baking you should be aware that it is not as finely ground as Quaker's. Sometimes this has an effect on the texture of your baked goods and sometimes it doesn't. It depends on the recipe. I definitely prefer it to Quaker's as a hot cereal because it has more texture.

Delicious and healthy. No cooking is strictly neededMar 15, 2010
I like oat bran because of its high soluble fiber content and low glycemic index.
When I bought it, I thought you have to cook it but instead its delicious even with no cooking. I eat mine raw, with kefir, so you could use it for instance in yogurt, straight from the bag. This means less processing, so you wont increase its glycemic index by breaking down carbs through high temperatures, and you will preserve all of its nutrients.
The price is good, with the subscribe and save it is cheaper than I could find in any local store.

Best serendipitous mistake I ever made! Wonderful product!Nov 15, 2010
By Bee On Thyme
I ordered this on accident. For some reason I thought I was getting Steel Cut Oats that I buy all the time. I was disappointed when I saw my mistake. AND THEN! I tried it. I absolutely, positively love this cereal! It has changed my morning routine. I put the required amount into the microwave with water-in less than 2 minutes it is done. I mix it with Almond milk(I love cow's milk, but it doesn't love me :( ) I sweeten the mix with a dusting of stevia sweetener. You don't need very much stevia as it is very sweet. This makes a thick satisfying "shake". Easy to drink and take as you drive to work. I have also added various add-ins and it just gets better and better. I have added cherry juice concentrate/raisins/cranberries/almonds/flax seed...the list goes on and on. But no matter what I add or don't add I love the texture and the taste. It is the best mistake I ever made. Thank you to the universe for this serendipitous mistake. Oh yes, it reminds me of when I was young and my mother made us Cream of Wheat "shakes" for breakfast. I can't have wheat anymore either...so this makes me so happy to find this product!!! YAY!

Excellent hot breakfast foodSep 19, 2007
By B. Warren
I bought the four-pack of this cereal from Amazon, and absolutely love it! Being a single guy, it is really simple and fast to make (just pop a large bowl in the microwave!) and very hearty. As with any plain-old grain cereal, the base is pretty bland (though, it can be eaten that way ... it's not as flavorless as some!), but is easy to work with ... add a small touch of blueberry syrup and a few fresh blueberries, or a touch of brown sugar and some maple syrup, and it's truly delightful! I will definitely buy another box when this one runs out.

Delicious, quick, with fiber and a "comfort food" on cold days, good for "Dukan"ites...Feb 12, 2012
I had pretty much removed grains from my diet to lose 120 lbs. I started adding back no-gluten carbs (a bit of rice, a bit of tubers). But when cold weather hit, I wanted something comforting and hot and "cerealy". I already had used Bob's Red Mill products and knew they were GOOD STUFF. So, I decided this didn't have such a bad carb hit per serving (15 net carbs per 1/3 cup dry)
Really lovely. Easy to fix (cook for 2 minutes, let stand 2 minutes, done). I sweeten it with fruit or sucralose and I'm good to go. I feel like my mom is "mothering" me, making me feel very cozy. It hasn't impeded my diet so far (though I was leery of readding a cereal). I figure the anti-nutrients in the oats is worth the comfort. :D
If you like oat bran cereal, this is a great one and the price here is good for the 4 pack. (I wish the folks who ordered it via amazon would mention the expiration date, as I have sometimes gotten foodstuffs here close to expiration, and 4 bags of this would last me quite a while...) I plan to order this 4-pack and hoping it's a fresh batch. Will update if otherwise.

Thumbs up from me!
And for folks doing that Dukan Diet, which isn't what I do, I hear this is suitable for that. In case that helps...
