I had the chance to branch out and try some new oats by this really cool company -
Bakery On Main!
Have you seen their stuff before? They offer some really unique variety of choices for those of us who eat gluten-free. I love when companies start out small like this one does, by the way. It started out as a small bakery in Connecticut, and the Founder and President, Michael Smulders is obviously passionate about making tasty gluten-free food safe for celiacs and people who are gluten intolerant. That is greatly appreciated by me! Read more about their story here.
I had the chance to try out a couple of their oatmeal. It's one of the things that I really enjoy in the morning, especially as the season gets cold. And not only do I enjoy it in the microwave or on the stove but I love making oat muffins. Although one day I couldn't find my muffin tin so I turned my usual muffin recipe into more of a cake-ish bread creation as you can see picture below -
This turned out AMAZING. It's delicious with honey and butter and this time around I used Happy Oats by Bakery on Main. Why are these oats happy? Could be that they're non GMO, preservative free, gluten-free and that's gonna sure make me happy.
So here's the recipe -
2 and a half cups of ground gluten free oats
1/2 a tsp of cream of tartar
1/4 a tsp of baking soda
1 and 1/3 cup of milk (or half and half or soy)
2 tbsp of butter (or olive oil)
1/2 tsp of salt
2 tbsp of cinnamon
1 tbsp of cloves
1/4 of honey
1/2 tsp of vanilla
About a cup or so of Frozen or fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 350. Mix together dry ingredients. Then add the milk, butter, and egg. Mix well.
I dab olive oil into pan and spread around with (clean lol) fingers to ensure this doesn't stick. Pour mixture into square baking pan. Sprinkle generous amount of cinnamon on top. Then sprinkle on blueberries on top of mixture.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
I love this recipe in particular because it's so modifiable. When the fall season and holiday season comes, I think I will experiment by adding some pumpkin to this or maybe turn it in gingerbread or something.
So I highly recommend adding Happy Oats to your shopping list and most of all, keep an eye out for what Bakery on Main has to offer, they've got some really good stuff. Visit their online store to purchase some that you can enjoy!
