National Oatmeal Month
Oatmeal cookies and instant oatmeal are just a few examples. Oats are a staple in the diet of many people around the globe. Oats have been used in many different ways, including as a breakfast option.
You have the opportunity to get to know oatmeal month and to love it as a staple in delicious cooking.
The Whole Grains Council honors a staple in the world’s grain supply every month. January was chosen as National Oatmeal Month. We buy more oats every January than any other month, and they are unique in that their germ and bran have never been separated.
Oats are great for you because you get the whole grain every single time you open a packet.
There are many ways to make oats. However, steaming them is the best and most traditional way. Then you roll them between steel rollers until they are completely flat. The speed at which they cook will depend on how flat they are pressed. Steel-cut oats are a great choice for those who love chewy, crunchy oats. They’re cut into smaller pieces to help absorb water. These oats are cooked for almost 30 minutes, making porridge rich and thick.
You can celebrate Oatmeal Month by trying new recipes that incorporate this delicious and versatile treat. We’ll share one of our favorite recipes today with those who don’t have any favorites:
Preheat oven at 375¬∞F. Make a large bowl and beat the margarine, sugars, and vanilla in it until they are well combined. Add the vanilla and egg to the bowl and mix well. Mix in the flour, baking soda and salt. Finally, add cinnamon. Mix in the oats. After it has been thoroughly mixed, take a few tablespoons of the dough and place them on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake them for 8-9 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheets for one minute. Make sure they are covered when you’re done.
