Two Flavors

Costco’s box of Health Warrior Oatmeal contains 10 packs of 2 different flavors. Those flavors are Apple Walnut and Strawberry Almond.


The nice part about this oatmeal is that they aren’t artificially flavored, but the flavor will actually come from the ingredients themselves. 

The Strawberry Almond oatmeal pack is going to contain dried strawberries and almonds. The Apple walnut pack is going to have dehydrated apples and chopped walnuts.

Excellent Ingredients

Not only does this oatmeal contain pieces of real fruits and nuts, but its ingredient list is very clean overall. 

You can recognize the name of almost every ingredient on the list, and there is no mono-bi-carbohydrate-sodium-phosphate-acid.


The only downside would be the “natural flavors.”

If you were to recreate this oatmeal at home, your ingredient list would be very, very similar to the one that Health Warriors uses. Fantastic stuff! 

Plant Based Marketing

I’m not going to get into too much, but I’m just not a fan of plant-based protein being so heavily utilized in marketing nowadays. 

Things like nuts and seeds are technically plant-based proteins, but they were rarely advertised as such.


Now, everything that has a nut, seed, vegetable or fruit is marketed as plant-based, and I don’t like it!

Costco Cost Comparison

How Much Does Health Warrior Oatmeal Cost at Costco?

Costco sells the 20-pack of Health Warrior Oatmeal for $16.99. This breaks down to a price of $0.85 per pack.

Costco occasionally discounts the oatmeal by $4.50, bringing the price down to $12.49 or $0.62 per pack. 

Strawberry Almond Health Warrior Oatmeal

This will be more expensive than your basic instant oatmeal pack but is an excellent price for a health-conscious oatmeal with various seeds and nuts.

Costco Exclusive Item

Health Warriors Oatmeal Packs appear to be a Costco exclusive item. The only other option that doesn’t involve either Walmart or Amazon’s 3rd party sellers would be purchasing the oatmeal directly from Health Warrior’s own website.

On their site, they sell similar sized oatmeal cups for $2.16 each. This is nearly 3 times Costco’s price for the oatmeal packs.

Health Warrior Oatmeal - Taste Test

I’ve had a few of these oatmeal packs now, and they are delicious. The oatmeal itself is solid, and the various toppings and ingredients are fantastic. 

There is an abundance of visible pumpkin, flax, chia, and sunflower seeds.


Each bite will contain at least a few different nuts or seeds, each with its own unique texture. There is definitely a lot of crunch to this oatmeal.


Combined with the fruit pieces of either strawberry or apple, there is an ample amount of sweetness in the oatmeal. 

The oatmeal isn’t overly sweet by any means and is at a great level for healthy oatmeal.

Apple Walnut

The apple walnut oatmeal is delicious. It smells like apple pie, and Health Warrior doesn’t skimp on either the apples or walnuts. 


The apples are packed with flavor, and I would say, on average, each pack contains 20+ sliced apple pieces.


There is also an acceptable amount of walnuts in each oatmeal pack. I can’t necessarily complain about the number of walnuts, but a few more pieces would have been nice as well. 

Strawberry Almond

The strawberry almond oatmeal includes dehydrated chopped strawberries and chopped almond pieces. 


The strawberry smell is very noticeable in this oatmeal. It does feel like there are less strawberry pieces here than there were apple pieces in the Apple Walnut flavor. 


Still, a very enjoyable flavor, the strawberries are nice and the oatmeal is very delicious.

CFDB Post Comments

There seem to be a lot of fans of Health Warrior Oatmeal. This oatmeal has been one of the more requested reviews we have received. Here is what some of our readers have said about this Costco gem on our food database page:

John V: “Great tasty oatmeal with seeds.”

Leticia G: “This is one of the best oatmeals in a pack that I’ve ever had.”


Marcy: “I got this at Costco, and it’s really helped me while I’m trying to eat nutritiously while breastfeeding my baby.”

Traci K: “My family absolutely loves this oatmeal, and I was so sad when I couldn’t find it at Costco anymore…. This is an amazing product, and I imagine its a great seller!”

Health Warrior Grains & Seeds Oatmeal Cooking Instructions

Health Warrior suggests two different options for heating/cooking their oatmeal. Both recommended cooking methods are easy and convenient. 

You can also adjust the amount of milk or water for your desired thickness.


Just Add Boiling Water/Milk - Recommended

  • Empty the packet into a bowl.
  • Add up to 1/2 cup of hot milk or boiling water, and stir.  
  • Let stand for 1 minute, enjoy!

Microwave Directions

  • Empty the packet into a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Add up to 2/3 cup unheated milk or water, and stir.
  • Microwave on high 70-75 seconds.
  • Stir, let stand for 1-2 minutes, and enjoy!

Easy Prep - Microwave Method

Believe it or not, the cooking directions on the individual packs are more helpful than the directions on the box. The box states to fill the bowl of oatmeal with 2/3 cup of water. 

The directions printed on the pouch also say to add 2/3 cup of water, but it will provide a fill line on the bag that designates 2/3 cup.


You can simply pour the oatmeal into a bowl and then fill the bag with water up until that line.

This saves you from needing additional equipment as well as making the oatmeal that much more convenient to make in the morning. 

Nutritional Information

How Many Calories in Health Warrior Oatmeal?

Costco’s two flavors of Health Warrior Oatmeal both have 240 calories per pouch. The calories are made up of 10 grams of fat, 29 grams of carbohydrates, and 10 grams of “plant-based” protein. 

There are 6 grams of fiber and 5 grams of added sugar.


There are some slight differences in the types of fat in each flavor, but for the most part, they are the same.

Healthy Seeds

Health Warrior includes 4 seeds in the oatmeal; sunflower, pumpkin, flax & chia. Chia seeds are a superfood, and all together, the 4 seeds are full of health benefits.

In fact, these 4 seeds make up Cleveland Health’s Top 6 Best Seeds to Eat

This is an excellent nutritional label for oatmeal and combined with its clean ingredient list, this is a perfect breakfast option.

Tastes good, but does have added sugars.
The packaging is confusing whether or not the product is gluten-free. There is no mention of that anywhere.
I love this oatmeal it was like the best oatmeal I’ve ever found and then it disappeared and now it’s way too expensive and I can only get it on Amazon if I want to get it and it’s not worth 40 bucks a box I would love to be able to get it again at Costco where I was always buying two boxes at a time so if you could bring it back that would be amazing. The protein is what I need a gastric bypass surgery and it helps me keep my protein going each day but now I have to go with stuff that I really don’t like but it has protein in it is please bring it back to Costco

11 thoughts on “Costco Health Warrior Oatmeal Packs”

  1. I don’t see this cereal available for purchase online. That’s unfortunate because it’s very good!

  2. When I eat other brands of instant oat packets, I would pour milk on them and leave it in the fridge overnight. It would thicken up just like heating it, and I would be able to have it cold. Of course, there are no nuts and such so I wouldn’t have to worry about them getting all soggy and soft. If made this oatmeal with the same procedure, does everything in it become mush?

  3. Packed with tasteful and varied products in a single package. A little pricey but I would still try to buy it constantly. The HUGE ISSUE I have with this product is the amount of added sugars it has per package. It defeats most of its healthy benefits. Sugars (specially those added as most are refined and/or processed) are the worse enemy for our bodies (put it up there with tobacco and alike). So why not leave the natural sugar in the product with out adding any more, or at least provide a no-added sugar option? It will be cheaper to produce anyway.

    I get that more sugar might equal to more taste and appeal to consumers as sugar is an additive that makes your brain crave more of it. So more sugar translates to more consumer appeal which translates to more sales. But again, there might be a good market for no-added sugar to this product. Also, anyone can add sugar to it if that persons likes it that way, but one can’t take sugar out of it as it comes already in mixed with the other contents.

  4. Great ingredients low in sugar. The Apple Cinnamon was my favorite I hope you can bring this product back into the clubs.

  5. Love this oatmeal but now Costco does t have it. Found it on Amazon but it’s $40 dollars. Costco please bring it back.

    1. I’m not sure why. It seems to be in and out of Costco warehouses. It was also not stocked for about 4 months earlier in the year for some reason.

  6. I agree with DICA on the issue of added sugar. Whenever I cannot find Health Warrior oatmeal at Costco, which is not unusual in recent weeks, I opt for Trader Joe’s Muesli Cereal. The ingredients are remarkably similar except for the added sugar. It tastes great!

    Like some others here, I eat it (Trader Joe’s Muesli Cereal or Costco’s Healthy Warrior) cold. I mix it with 2/3 cup of Costco Greek Yogurt, put a cup of frozen mixed fruit on top, and put it in the fridge overnight.
