When Picky Bars, the Oregon-based energy bar company founded by professional athletes Jesse Thomas, Lauren Fleshman, and Steph Bruce, went to Kickstarter to back their new performance oatmeal, they were fully funded in under 10 hours. Apparently, the community really wanted some gluten-free, vegan Picky Oats. The product is available at specialty retailers, online and at Natural Grocers. Made with organic ingredients and with 10 or more grams of protein, the oats come in three flavors: Can't Beet Chocolate; Game, Set, Matcha!, and How 'Bout Dem Apples—flavors developed through a partnership with Elyse Kopecky, the New York Times Bestselling co-author of "Run Fast, Eat Slow," who's also a Bend local. Picky Oats falls into the instant oatmeal category; just add hot water.
