Frozen Steel-Cut Oatmeal
There are a few things I always get at Trader Joe's over any other store because of the price comparison, and the Trader Joe's Frozen Steel-Cut Oatmeal ($2) is one of them. I love this because each $2 box comes with two portions of individually wrapped, frozen blocks of oatmeal that heats in the microwave in three minutes, no water required. It's slightly sweetened with brown sugar and maple syrup, and I'll either eat it plain or top it with slivered almonds and dried fruit if I have any. Whether or not you opt for Trader Joe's version of frozen oatmeal or find it at another store, it's hands down one of the cheapest, quickest, and most filling breakfast options to eat before a long work day.
