Welcome to Day #20 of Chocolate and Coffee Theme Week.
Today's Moodify Food * "A Little Buzzed" Oatmeal Cup was distributed by GMF Foods LLC (Denver, CO). The brand name is a reference to how modifying your food can influence your mood and health. They offer a line of single-serving oatmeal cups with this sentiment in mind.
The pleasing aroma and flavor for today's cocoa and coffee flavored oatmeal cup included: rich, fragrant oat(meal) with cocoa, coffee and cinnamon. Cocoa nibs added bits of (softly) crunchy texture and true essential (unsweetened) cacao taste with faint roasted nutty seed and very faint green/botanical flavors.
Prepared with hot water with a short 3-minute wait time, one could easily allow less or more time, if a slightly coarser or creamier oatmeal texture is desired.
Sweetened with a judicious amount of date sugar, I found the sweetness level just right.
This was a perfect wake up meal--not too heavy, but more substantial than a cup of coffee with the added benefits of authentic cocoa (cocoa nibs and cocoa powder) and cinnamon--as well as a touch of amaranth and ground flax seed for some extra fiber and heft. It left me feeling a little uplifted and not too "buzzed"--as promised.
Ingredients: Gluten free oats, date sugar, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, amaranth, ground flax, ground coffee, and cinnamon.
