Organic Extra Thick Rolled Oats
great product for breakfast
I've been buying this oatmeal for a long time and love the fact that it's organic and extra thick. I have this every morning. I used to get it at the market but I found sometimes they were out so I looked on Swanson's site and there it was so I now order it with my vitamins, facial cream, etc. so I won't run out. Very tasty with a little brown sugar, honey and some good ol' milk.

my favorite brand
I love love love Bob's Red Mill brand of oatmeal. I've eaten this for breakfast for a long time. It's organic which is the first thing I like and it's just oats, nothing else. No additives and extra thick. I mostly bought it at my neighborhood store but found out that getting it fr Swanson's is a better buy, so that's an extra plus. Try it you'll like it.

I enjoy mixing this with the regular rolled oats and a heaping tsp of Scottish Oats, all from Bob's Red Mill.

my husband loves the chewiness of these oats. We add the muesli (1/4) cup the last min of cooking.
Make sure you use 1/4 cup less of the oats

It's not that easy to find organic oatmeal, and Swansons has the best prices

best you will ever eat!!
The oats of my childhood-Haven't found anything at a comparable price that are better. takes about 20 minutes to cook (well worth the wait) and add raisins and any other dried fruit I'm in the mood for. Delicious!!

My favorite oats.
Aside from the obvious benefits of being organic, these oats cook up well while maintaining their character and integrity - i.e., they don't become mush. I pour boiling water over half a cup of oats and a pinch of salt and seal it in a wide-mouth thermos for half an hour. Then add some pure maple syrup and some organic, non-homogenized milk, and that's my favorite breakfast. Adding raisins or other dried fruit before sealing is also good, but you have to add more boiling water so that everything gets cooked. Easy to figure out after a few tries. Hard to find oats this thick.

best product and price
I love this oatmeal. It is extra thick and seems
so fresh. I make healthy cookies and use
the oatmeal and no flour. They come out

I LIKE MOST OF BOB'S PRODUCTS. I JUST WONDER WHY HE DOESN'T GO ALL ORGANIC. HE HAS MANY CONVENTIONAL PRODUCTS.

There is a difference. I have compared this to brand name regular oatmeal. Bob's is tastier and has a better consistency/texture. I have not made cookies with it yet but I am sure they would be great.

Been eating them for years!
Would have given 5 Leaves except I believe the size and firmness of the flakes has diminished over the years. I empty the bag into a plastic container, then shake it, causing the oat "flour" to drift down. Scoop then contains less flour, resulting in better tasting oatmeal. I add banana, pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon. Yum!

Matter of Preference
These oats are very good and tasteful. I'm not sure that I like the thicker oats. It is strictly a matter of texture preference. I made cookies with this and I think I would rather a "crispy" think oat to the thicker "chewy" oat.

These oats are really good. Not as easy to cook as the Quaker kind but they are better tasting.

Great "meaty" oats
We love Bob's Red Mill Organic Extra Thick Rolled Oats. The texture of the oats gives it a great "meaty" consistency... it doesn't turn into mush like others on the market. The price through Swanson is great, too; we've paid double this at the market.

I like Bob's Red Mill Organic products in general. However with this particular oats, I have tried and do prefer a much thicker oats. The texture is good. But if it were thicker and bigger rolled oats, it would be much more enjoyable to chew. I gues size does matter!

THIS IS VERY GOOD OATMEAL, ORGANIC AND GREAT PRICE. IT MAKES A WONDERFUL BREAKFAST, OATMEAL COOKIES, GRANOLA,
WHAT EVER YOU WOULD WANT TO USE IT FOR.

Good chewy oats
I HATE mushy oatmeal. This product (Bob's organic extra thick rolled oats) solves that problem. The oats are so thick that they require chewing of a somewhat vigorous nature. I would definitely buy these again, but want to warn others that the packaging is not good for storing an opened pack. Use a jar or expect to keep it in a Ziploc bag.
