I am a huge fan of the sweet yet wholesome Quaker Brown Sugar Oatmeal Squares. It's not a particularly flashy cereal, but when I saw the Golden Maple, I knew I had to try it.
These Quaker Golden Maple Oatmeal Squares are very similar in structure to the original, but with the new flavor, they have carved out their own niche. When I opened the bag inside, I could instantly smell the maple scent. It reminded me of other maple syrup-inspired cereals, but I knew this cereal was much healthier for me with whole oat flour as the main ingredient.
Each cup provides 210 calories, 18% of the daily value for fiber, 12 grams of sugars and 6 grams of protein. There is also a host of vitamins and minerals, most notably 90% DV iron and 100% DV folic acid. Sure there are other lower calorie cereals out there, but trust me, this one is filling, nutritious, has a sane ingredients list and can;t be beat as a snack.
A 16 ounce box of Quaker Golden Maple Oatmeal Squares Cereal was on sale at Target for $2.75. While the Golden Maple variation didn't top my love for the Quaker Brown Sugar Oatmeal Squares, I really did like this thick, sweet and crunchy cereal ... and variety is the spice of life.
If you're looking for a maple syrup sweetness in a healthy cereal, the Quaker Golden Maple Oatmeal Squares is worth a shot.
