    Well, when you are really in a hurry you just add some flavored coffee creamer (French Vanilla) for me and hit the door…it’s not fancy but it’s what I do… 🙂 Thanks.

    My great creation is one that I’m sure no one else has ever thought of: I have my wife turn oats into oatmeal/raisin cookes, then I eat ’em for breakfast with a cold glass of milk (or hot chocolate or a cup of coffee)!

    I make a pina colada breakfast: oats, pineapple, almond milk, coconut extract; make at night put in fridge for eating the next morning; then add a little umbrella to make it super special!

    I love old fashioned oatmeal with a bit of flax seed mixed in – raisins – no milk, so it is thick and I can eat it on the run without fearing a mess or spill. With an oat cereal/granola, I prefer mixed with yogurt with banana or fruit. Nothing creative – just so good!

    How can you bring up your creation again to send to more friends so they can vote?

    • Customer Care 05/02/2015 at 11:35 am

      Great question, Brenda. All you need to do to share your creation with your friends is go to find your creation, click on it, then share to your social channels or send friends your URL. Thanks for sharing your tasty ideas! ~Shasta

    I don’t think this is working correctly. There are a few on the front page that have hundreds of votes but I have not been able to vote on another one all day…have tried multiple methods, too. I think votes are getting tabulated under the few on the front page with so many votes. There is no way that those should have hundreds when votes cannot register on others.

      We’re sorry to hear about the problems you’ve been encountering with entering votes, Leslie. Are you using Internet Explorer 8? We’ll take a look at the page as well. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and hope you have a fantastic day. ~Shasta

    My oat waffles turned out pleasantly better than i thought. I ground organic oats to a flour added some ground nuts, blueberries and half 2% milk and half almond flour. Mixed it all up in the hotels waffle cups and poured into the waffle iron. Turns out that it doesn’t spread out too much, so i need to double the amt. They turned out fluffy, tasty and really good.

    If you above commenters would like to enter the contest, you need to visit the provided link, not just comment here. Also, it is a voting contest, which means it will be rife with vote-buying AKA cheating. Yes, there are many, many, “vote-buying” sites. Sorry to be such a downer, but these type of contests are inherently unfair, apparently Albertson’s marketing dept is unaware of the widespread cheating on these type of promotions. I wish they had opted for a more fair type of contest, I totally would have entered. Good luck all!

    This is not a sweepstakes.
    This is a contest.

    One of my favorite spices isn’t included in the possible choices: Cloves. While in Peru, I developed a love for cinnamon and clove tea, and it inspires my breakfast. There is an unlimited number of ideas, but the contest limits the number of ideas that can be entered. 🙁

      That does sound rather tasty, Laura! I’ll make sure that our marketing team hears that you would like to see cloves on the list of ingredients. Thank you for your time. ~Zachary
