For the last several days I’ve been wanting oatmeal for breakfast and just haven’t gotten around to doing it. This morning, I did it. I would guess that from start to finish, our process is a bit different from how most people go about fixing themselves a bowl of oatmeal. 🙂
First, I start with the needed amount of whole oats.
Next, I can make “steel cut oats” using the wheat mill. I can barely crack them or I can cut them a bit finer. I can grind them to be flour but that’s not what I want. I prefer them barely cracked so they’re still nutty and chewy after being cooked.
Or I can make rolled oats which are very similar to “Old Fashioned Oats” which you buy in the store.
These cook in about three minutes. Whole oats are rolled using a “flicfloc“.
I often make these when I’m in a hurry but I also sometimes use rolled oats in meatloaf and I love Oatmeal Cake.
Oats are supposed to be pretty healthy – maybe not so much in the Oatmeal Cake! 🙂
