BetterOats Lavish Dark Chocolate Old Fashioned Instant Oatmeal
Dessert for breakfast? YUM. This stuff has real chocolate morsels, plus good-for-you omega-3s! The dark-chocolate flavor is incredible, and the texture is really good for instant oats. Have a guilt-free bowl for breakfast or as a midday snack....
Each pouch has 160 calories, 2.5g fat, 33g carbs, 3g fiber, 4g protein and PointsPlus® value of 4.

Corazonas Oatmeal Squares
Craving oatmeal on the go? Try these breakfast squares. There are SEVEN flavors to choose from, including Chocolate Brownie & Almonds, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, Chocolate Chip and Banana Walnut. I love the taste of these chewy bars so much (they're VERY cookie-like!), and they're packed with fiber and protein. Perfect any time of day.
Each square has 180 - 200 calories, 4.5 - 9g fat, 25 - 29g carbs, 5 - 6g fiber, 6g protein and a PointsPlus value of 4 - 5.

Tabatchnick Steel Cut Oatmeal Singles
The folks at Tabatchnick keep crankin' out winners. I'm a fan of the single-serve soups, and these solo oatmeal bowls are just as amazing. They come frozen, and they're perfect for a fast breakfast -- pop one in the microwave, and spoon it up minutes later. Go for Old Fashioned, Wildberry, Apple Cinnamon, Cinnamon Spice or Maple Syrup and Brown Sugar. Fantastic!
Each bowl has 220 - 240 calories, 3g fat, 42 - 47g carbs, 4 - 5g fiber, 7g protein and a PointsPlusvalue of 6.

Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies
Too tempted by a whole plate (or package) full of cookies to eat just one? Thankfully, these fruit-'n-nut-stuffed Quaker cookies are individually wrapped! They're also nicely sized and pretty filling. Grab one in Raisin, Chocolate Almond, Cranberry & Yogurt or Banana Nut. Something for everyone!
Each cookie has 170 calories, 6 - 8g fat, 25 - 27g carbs, 4g fiber, 2 - 3g protein and a PointsPlus value of 4 - 5.

Oversized Carnival Oatmeal
HG oatmeal recipes are unique. Compared to regular recipes for old-fashioned oatmeal, they call for twice as much liquid and cook for twice as long. The result is a bowl that's twice as large! (YAY!) This recipe is super indulgent...

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 no-calorie sweetener packet
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze
1/4 cup mashed extra-ripe banana (about 1/2 large banana)
1 1/2 tsp. fat-free, low-fat, or light caramel dip
1 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. chopped peanuts

In a nonstick pot, combine oats, sweetener, cinnamon, salt and Almond Breeze. Mix in 1 cup water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook and stir for 10 minutes. Add banana and mix well. Cook and stir until thick and creamy, 2 - 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and let slightly cool and thicken. Top with remaining ingredients, and enjoy!
The entire recipe has 312 calories, 9.5g fat, 53g carbs, 7g fiber, 8g protein and a PointsPlusvalue of 8. MAKES 1 SERVING
