Amp Up Your Breakfast with Picky Oats #Giveaway

If you’ve been around here, you know I love Picky Bars and a good Kickstarter. Worlds collided when my friends from Picky Bar launched a Kickstarter for their new Picky Oats – Performance Oatmeal.

If you’re not familiar with Picky Bars, you should be! They were “created by runners for runners.”  Lauren Fleshman and Stephanie Rothstein, who has Celiac Disease, wanted a great, gluten free energy bar for their training. These bars are great for you and taste amazing. [Since the first time I shared Picky Bars in 2013, I met Lauren Fleshman (post) and then Stephanie Rothstein at the SLO Half (post) I am even more impressed with them and Picky Bar, now!]

The folks at Picky decided to expand into “performance” oatmeal.  They say it’s “a breakfast built and balanced for high performers.” Picky Oats “keep you full without weighing you down.” All three flavors feature superfood ingredients and 10 grams of all natural protein. The flavors were formulated with the help of Elyse Kopecky, chef of the best selling cookbook Run Fast. Eat Slow.

Picky Oats are USDA Organic, gluten free and vegan. They have 10g of natural protein and 40% less sugar that conventional instant oatmeal. More than 1/2 the package is toppings so there is a ton of flavor. These are not your ordinary oats.

There are three flavors. They are “How ‘Bout Dem Apples?” (Apple Cinnamon, Chia Seeds & Ginger), “Game Set Matcha” (Matcha, Goji Berries, Pepitas & Cardomom) and “Can’t Beet Chocolate” (Beet, Cacao, Chia Seeds & Almond). They can be heated or served cold as overnight oats.

I made half hot and half as overnight oats.

They’re all tasty and filling. My fave is “Can’t Beet Chocolate.” Amanda’s is “How ‘Bout Dem Apples.” The matcha mixes in tea for extra energy.

I got a bunch of Picky Oats and swag from supporting the Kickstarter. I’m sharing some with one lucky reader. I’ll send one winner two packets of each flavor, a Picky trucker cap and water bottle. Please use the Rafflecopter below. The contest runs through 2/8. A winner will be selected and notified on 2/9. Winner must be 18 years of age or older, a US resident (or have a US postal intermediary) and it is void where prohibited.

    The Beet Chocolate sounds heavenly! Would love to try that one first. But really all of them sound good. Love Picky Bars, it was my #1 fuel option training for a 70.3. So I am sure the oats are also terrific.

  20. Sarah N says:

    I would try the Game Set Matcha first. I usually eat hot oats but sometimes i’ll do overnight oats if I know I’m going to be in rush to get out the door in the morning.

  21. Helga says:

    I would have them hot and I am most interested in How About Dem Apples!

  22. Lauren says:

    How About Dem Apples sounds delish. I usually eat hot oats but liked making a few jars of overnight oats for the week when I was in school since it was easy to have everything prepared-if I had more time in the AM sometimes I’d heat up my overnight oats too 🙂

  23. Nikki Fahey says:

    The Apple cinnamon for sure!

  24. Deb E says:

  25. gala says:

    I want to try How About Dem Apples

  26. Amy S says:

    This is a little unfair because I already have tried all 3 numerous times from supporting the Kickstarter, but my favorite is the Macha.

  27. Becca Z says:

    I would try the Can’t Beet chocolate oats hot. I missed your reviews on Picky Bars, they sound good, I am going to follow them now although I wish the bars were organic like these oats though.

  28. Lisa Stover says:

    Ok, I think I would definitely like the apple one, so I’d probably try that first. I am also very intrigued by matcha. I have never tried it but it seems like everyone is talking about it lately! I guess I need to give it a go 🙂

  29. Marty says:

    I(‘d try the ‘Game, Set, Matcha’ flavor — mainly because of the cardamom, which I’ve never thought to try in oatmeal. Definitely a hot oatmeal fan — overnight oats are just too cold and gluey for me.

  30. Allison says:

    Definitely hot (I haven’t gotten into the overnight oats craze), and the apples flavor!

    Thank You for the chance!

  43. I think I’d go with “How ‘Bout Dem Apples?”. Sounds pretty interesting and tasty. I’d go overnight oats, mostly because they’re on a list of my “things to try that I haven’t yet”, so these would be a good excuse, though i do love some warm oatmeal in the winter.
