Daily source of fibre and energy. Love them.
I used to boil rolled oats for brekie though found this product a few years ago and switched to them. Easier to prepare and more versatile. Pity they're not 100% oats.
QUIN-ESSENTIAL AUSSIE BREAKFAST EATING
Best breakfast ive ever had - been eating this for 10 + years and i hear it is potentially getting discounted. Do not do that uncle tobys. We all love the product and it tastes amazing and helps balance me to get through the day with a full belly of energy.
Where have they gone!
Gave these to my growing now teenage son for years, Still searching for a cereal repacement he likes. Loved the healthy oat fibre content.
Best breakfast meal I have ever had.
I was disappointed when OatBrits disappeared from your shelves. Hope for a return. What is the proportion of oats? How much wheat?
August 5th 2018 Update: Best cereal that I have ever tasted - where can I buy it?
Repeat- Best breakfast meal that I have ever sampled I. Why take them off the market? I have tried both Coles and Woolies. Will have to resort to porridge!
I was very disappointed to find they are 55% oats, with wheat making up supposedly the remainder, since they just list wheat, without the percentage. I don’t know if they’ve changed the recipe over time or not. Disappointed.
Two oatbrits together with half to three quarters cup blueberries, tablespoon of honey two table spoons of Greek yogurt and splash of rice milk, enough to carry a person thru till a short lunch.
A healthy start to the day
Was a long time vita Brits fan but moved to wheat free option with Oat Brits and really enjoy. By themselves they are a bit bland so I add about 1/4 cup of dries cranberries to 3 crushed Brits with milk which adds some sweetness and a kick of taste!
best morning food!
okay! so I read other reviews. sure these are more dense than weetbix.. but they will fill you up longer. and they are healthier.
the key to making them delicious, I get 3brits, I crush them up, with my hands ( no mixer) , so its all shredded in the bowl, i heat up about a cup of soy milk ( or milk if you like) I stir it in gradually so i get the consistency i wanted the brits soften a bit more, then i sprinkle in a teaspoon of raw sugar. lovely warm porridge type mix. not too runny. in fact a little thick. just add more milk. personally this is my winter breakfast. it would be a bit heavy for summer. I usually have protein shake in summer for b/fast.
pouring cold milk over them as they are, likely you would with weetbix, may not be the best. so find new ways of eating them. they are really great. and P.S I am super picky eater! so it must be good
The best healthiest start to my day
Thank you to Uncle Toby for making Oat Brits. I don't eat dairy so I had to come up with a way of eating my oat brits. I put one brit in a bowl with a teaspoon of brewers yeast and a teaspoon of ground flaxseed and a bit of bran. I then pour near boiling water over and mix and then add a little cool water and a sliced banana and a handful of blueberries....yum! A beautifully healthy start to my day and it keeps me going for hours and hours,
Oats Brits purchased because of the packaging [I wanted Vita Brits ] accidentally. Both myself and my son think they are terrible.
If I start my day with Oat bits the rest of my day goes swell!
Love this alternative to a full wheat product. I love the texture, I love the taste and I'm not eating wheat every meal. Anytime of the day is the right time to have this ad a snack but I find to start my day off with this staple is a great day. Oats are yummy and good for your tummy. It's my favorite. Today I could only find them on Coles shelf and I think Woolworth my have now already taken them off the shelf. I will shop only where I can buy them so Coles is now we're I choose to do my regular shop.
Love this product. It has helped get my cholesterol down
I started eating oat Brits when I saw that they contained oats, as I wanted to get my cholesterol down, and they are quick and easy. Since starting on them, and in conjunction with using other cholesterol lowering foods, my cholesterol has reduced from 6.5 to 3.5. I am thrilled, and quite frankly I would eat them even if they didn't taste good- which they do! They are similar in texture to weet bix and vita Brits, but with the added bonus of cholesterol lowering properties. In addition, and importantly, they are economical, unlike many cereals which can be quite costly. Thank you- I love them!
My favourite breakfast cereal
Most wholegrain breakfast cereals with no added sugar will taste a bit bland if you simply put them in a bowl and pour milk over them. You need to be a bit more creative than that. I add dry roasted almonds, raisons, milk and a bit of spice. The end result is absolutely delicious.
I hope Uncle Toby’s never discontinues this product as it is my all time favourite breakfast cereal.
Nestle's Uncle Tobys Oat Brits. Loyal customer, Very unhappy with this product offering
Box code: Best before 04 NOV 2013 13:35
Before submitting a negative review I should make it clear I have been and remain a long time consumer of Uncle Tobys Traditional RolledOats, originally a product of Clifford Love & Co and still essentially remains faithful in taste and texture throughout the various company mergers and takeovers since 1960's
It is my preferred hot winter breakfast, and I believe, a healthy low GI option.
My wife recently purchased Uncle Tobys Oat Brits and I cannot understand how Nestles allowed it to be released in its current form.
It is bland in taste and has the consistency of waterlogged cardboard in the bowl after the dry biscuits absorb added milk. The general impression is that the cereal has been overrefined / milled too fine and the resulting biscuits disintergrate to a most unappetising soggy mass upon addition of liquid.
While the creation of breakfast cereal which puts ticks in most boxes for health is to be encouraged, I think they have missed the point by failing to produce an appetising product.
I want to support and purchase Australian goods to keep jobs in this country but suspect predatory pricing by Coles / Woolies bleeding profits from manufacturers may be undermining innovation and product integrity in a market competing with imported products.
Perhaps greater effort with R&D and consumer testing prior to release instead of spending all the budget on packaging and marketing might result in a better outcome for consumers.
Colourful packaging. Sealed packaging allows an extended storage / shelf life before opening. Easy to interpret core nutritional information on front of box.
Bland , unpalatable taste, gluggy, cardboard like consistency once it absorbs milk or liquid. Heart tick is wasted on this product as it is so unappetising, regardless of the claimed health benefits.
Oat Brits Have changed
We recently purchased Oat Brits as we usually do but their receipe must have changed as it is like eating bricks. They are more dense and too heavy on the stomach. None of my family like the new recipe which is unfortunate so we are trying other cereals at the moment.
Too heavy on the stomach
Yummy and Good for You
Only bought this because this the first time because the pack said "You'll love it or your money back". Believe it or not, it has replaced Weet Bix in our house! Delicious and there is an extra dimension to the taste because of the texture. You can have it crisp, chewy or soggy depending on how much you let it soak in the milk. I love it chewy (you can't get that with Weet Bix) .Also, tastes good hot (microwaved) or cold. Really filling too, and good for you! If you have high cholesterol it is the ideal breakfast.
Taste, texture, everything!
Yummy and so good for you!
Ive always wanted to eat oats because they are a healthy and filling breakfast but I cant stomach rolled oats (looks like glue!)
So Oatbrits are perfect for me. They taste very similar to weetbix but they are more filling and you get the added bonus because they can lower your cholesterol. Plus they are easy to prepare and you dont need to heat them up.
Easy to prepare, low in sugar, filling.
More expensive than weetbix :(
A great alternative to traditional porridge that seems to heavy for summer. This gives you all the benfits of the traditional oats but combined into a biscuit. Served with fruit the tasty and healthy start to the day.
I love the benefits of oats but find traditional oats too hot in summer so this product is perfect. Tasty, convenient and low in sugar
Good idea but not exactly nice tasting
I'm a big fan of Weet-Bix (and Weetabix) for breakfast. When I saw Oatbrit in the shop I decided to get some. I've been eating a lot of porridge (trying to reduce my cholesterol) and the benefits of oats in something like Weet-Bix is potentially a great idea. However, having just eaten some now, I'm quite disappointed with the taste of them. It's not particularly a pleasant flavour. Perhaps it was the best flavour they could manage with ingredients? All I can say is that I'm going to have to force myself to eat the rest of them in the box.
