OMeals – Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal
Waking up to a hazy morning on the lake with just a few miles left to go. The sun is warm on the rocks, but it hasn’t penetrated our bones yet. Why not try a sweet breakfast classic to start the day?
Omeals Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal was a tasty treat in the morning, consistent with most oatmeals you would make at home, possibly a bit on the gluey. It was nice to have a hot meal that didn’t require us to bring a stove, fuel, or pot.

Start by opening the Omeals bag and removing the food pouch, heating element and utensils. Remove the heating element from its individual pouch and place it back in the bag. After kneading the food pouch a bit to stir up the contents, place the food pouch unopened in the Omeal bag as well. Use the fill line on the outside of the bag or measure out 3-5 ounces of water and add it into the bag. After quickly closing the bag top, stand back and let the food warm up for 3-5 minutes.
- Takes about 7 minutes to fully prepare.
- Fill line on the bag.

While not the hardest meal to make, Omeals Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal came pretty close to the home cooked version that most of us enjoyed as children. While the oatmeal itself felt a bit like quinoa, it was a bit gluey for our taste, it was still a nice sugary classic that we will occasionally enjoy.
- Not dehydrated.
- Strange texture.
