They can be eaten as a breakfast cereal and in many cakes, bakes, biscuits and breads.

There are many recipes on the internet for making a healthy, delicious alternative to the highly processed breakfast. Why not try adding fresh or dried fruit to these quality, freshly packed Mornflake porridge oats.
Mornflake have been growing and milling oats since 1675.

Their porridge has always been the best. Especially so is their organic range which are tender and have a better flavour.

What’s the difference between jumbo and porridge oats? Jumbo oats are a pressed oat, flattened with the bran on. They are chewier when eaten raw, though become creamier and richier when cooked.

There are many ways to prepare porridge. The most nutritious of all, after the whole oat, are the pinhead/steel cut oats. These take a little longer to prepare, but in the authors humble opinion make the most satisfying of feeds. Here’s a link to the winners of the Golden Spurtle – the prize given to the winner of the competition. And here’s a link on Facebook to some of the recipes they have made.

Why are oats so good for us?

  • Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid): 10% of the RDI
  • Smaller amounts of calcium, potassium, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin B3 (niacin)

This is coming with 51 grams of carbs, 13 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat and 8 grams of fiber, but only 303 calories.

This means that oats are among the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat. (Taken from Healthline.com)
