Nature Valley Bistro Cups™ are made with 100% whole grain oats.

Make your breakfast in the same amount of time it takes to brew a cup of coffee—and in the same machine. From the same people that brought you those crunchy granola bars, Nature Valley Bistro Cups™ use the hot water from your Keurig® machine to make a steaming bowl of oatmeal. How resourceful!

Pouring Nature Valley Instant Oatmeal into a mug

I don’t have a Keurig® but my office does, so I keep a box stashed at my desk. I tried the apple-cinnamon-almond oatmeal (though the brown sugar-pecan was a tempting alternative). The almonds add a nice, crunchy texture. Plus, there’s something about a warm bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon that’s so cozy and comforting on a chilly morning. And with 7 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein, it’s a sweet-yet-satisfying start to my day. 

Look for Nature Valley Bistro Cups™ at your local grocery store. Don’t forget your coupon for 2 dollars off when you buy a box. Find a retailer near you.
