Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal at Home

The last time I was traveling I grabbed my usual Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal cup and declared that it was SO good, that I had to start making it at home.


Well today, was that day.

I gathered up my ingredients and made it happen!

    I love Sbux oatmeal and your’s looks even better because you can eat it out of a real bowl, not a cardboard container!

    • Cait

      Haha exactly! The real bowl actually makes a big difference :)

  • Kristen @ Swanky Dietitian

    It’s funny cause it truly is so simple but I just never thought to make it at home. It probably takes about the same amount of time. Great thinking, Cait! :)
