Chobani Greek Yogurt Oats

I was never a fan of yogurt until I discovered Greek yogurt a couple of years ago.  This week, I learned that Chobani has a new line of Greek yogurt with steel-cut oats, and not just any old steel-cut oats, but gluten free steel-cut oats.  At Publix, I was able to purchase all four of the new Chobani Greek Yogurt Oats.  

Yesterday, I bought the blueberry, cranberry, and banana maple, which I tried first.  

I could see the oats as soon as I opened my cup of yogurt.  They still had that wonderful chew that steel-cut oats have, and the banana yogurt was really delicious, and not artificial tasting like many banana yogurts.  Not being a huge fan of fruit on the bottom or non-fat yogurt, I was happy to see that all of Chobani Greek Yogurt Oats are blended low-fat yogurts.  I would have to say that the banana maple was one of the best yogurts I have ever had, so I was excited to try the other three flavors.  

Before I exercised this morning, I ate two containers of yogurt, which gave me all the energy I needed to power walk for an hour outside in the Orlando heat.  I enjoyed the blueberry, but as I ate the cranberry, I kept thinking it needed some orange zest.  At Thanksgiving, the cranberry relish I make contains an orange and Granny Smith apples, so I found myself wanting a little more depth of flavor in my cranberry yogurt.  Oddly enough, I also wanted it to be a little bit sweeter.  

Before I picked up my kids from school, I headed to Publix again to buy more banana maple and blueberry Chobani Greek Yogurt Oats, but I also picked up an apple cinnamon, even though I was convinced I wouldn't like it.  Well, I am really glad that I decided to try the apple cinnamon yogurt, because it was amazing!  I loved the combination of chewy steel-cut oats with chunks of apple, and a smooth blended yogurt with a wonderful taste of cinnamon.

Chobani Greek Yogurt Oats have 10 grams of protein, and 3 grams of dietary fiber.  They contain no artificial flavors or sweeteners, no preservatives, and are made with milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones.  They are certified gluten free and kosher, and contain three types of probiotics.

A huge thank you to Anna Sonnenberg from Gluten-Free Jet Set.  I wouldn't have even known these yogurt oats existed if I hadn't seen a picture she posted of the cranberry yogurt on Instagram.

Have you tried Chobani Greek Yogurt Oats?  What is your favorite flavor?
