I recently bought/tried the Bariatric Pal Peaches & Cream oatmeal. It is not good at all. Very weird consistency. It also tasted very bland. For the costs of these things, you would think they at least tasted good. Another waste of $$$.

I haven't tried that flavor (peach oatmeal doesn't appeal to me in any case), but I like the apple cinnamon and maple brown sugar. I ate it during the pureed and soft food stages but rarely eat it anymore because I'd rather have solid food like eggs. But coincidentally, I actually did have it for Breakfast today. It doesn't have much flavor on its own, but I like it with mix-ins. My favorite is to add shredded carrots, pumpkin pie spice, nuts, and birthday cake Protein Powder to make carrot cake oatmeal (also topped with brown Swerve):

I think the value of this oatmeal is that it's a lot lower in carbs and higher in Protein than regular oatmeal, so I think it's worth having on hand to use as a starting point. Maybe you could try mixing in some real peaches and it might taste better?

That is a great idea. I will try it. It will be much cheaper than buying all these other products.

Mixing in some real peaches might just work. Thank You for the idea.

That's what I do as well. I use either vanilla, salted caramel or cinnamon. Sometimes I mix the powders.

ETA: You're most likely going to have to experiment with the ratio of fluid/oats/powder to get the desired consistency.

That reminds me that I wanted to try carrot cake oatmeal since a whole while. What spices do you use? Means: what exactly is in that pumpkin pie spice?

I actually don't buy pre-made pumpkin pie spice -- I use a combo of cinnamon, allspice, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg (freshly-grated if you can find whole nutmeg). I don't measure any of it, just sprinkle on some of each.

That sounds a bit like the "apfelkuchen"-spice mix I have at home. I also have allspice sitting in the cupboard. :)

Thank you.

I think that's exactly what they put in pre-made pumpkin pie spice, too!

Yeah, that's why I don't buy it. It's overpriced and I already have the individual spices, anyway.
