I was recently contacted by Simpli to try their new gluten-free apricot oatmeal. I’m so glad I did try it. This instant oatmeal is perfect for a cold winter morning. It’s warm and creamy (even without milk) and has a delightful apricot flavor.
You know my first concern, though, is always to find out what a company does to produce a gluten-free product and avoid cross contamination. Here is a quote from their gluten-free process page where you can learn more:
At Simpli, we take extra care to make sure our oats are certified gluten free and never contaminated by contact with other grains. Our oats are sustainably grown and harvested in fields dedicated to oats, processed and packaged in facilities used exclusively for oats. This rigorous quality control allows us to deliver the highest quality gluten-free oat products.
The apricot oatmeal contains oats, apricots, sugar, and salt. It has 4 grams of fiber, 10 grams of sugar, and 5 grams of protein.
I love the simplicity of the ingredients. While I don’t usually use instant anything, there are times when it is useful. The oats are ready in a jiffy and the fruit is already in there. Personally, I would prefer they omitted the sugar. An unsweetened oatmeal would allow me to add the amount and type of sweetener I desire. Other than that, I loved the oatmeal. Each box contains five servings in individual packets. So far I have only eaten it as oatmeal, but Simpli also suggests using it in granola, pancakes, cookies, and smoothies.
