Cooking and Recipes
LoonSong rolled oats are old fashioned oats, with delicious whole flakes, not quick oats. You can use them in any regular recipe that calls for oats- you will taste the flavor a bit more because our oats are fresh rolled 🙂
If you desire quick oats, then just put some of ours into a blender or food processor very briefly, and then you will have the smaller piece size.
Here are a few recipes to get you started!
One way to cook oatmeal (porridge)
(Approximately 2 average servings)
Place 3 cups water in a medium sized pot.
Bring to a boil, then turn down heat to medium.
Add 1 ½ cups LoonSong rolled oats and stir in.
Cook on medium heat approximately 15 minutes, stirring to prevent from sticking to bottom.
Add in raisins, nuts, sunflower seeds, maple syrup, cinnamon, etc.
Cook to the consistency you like. ENJOY!!
Mostly Oats Granola
Adapted from the “Simply In Season” Cookbook.
This is a basic recipe, add or adjust ingredients as you like!
6 cups rolled oats ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup shredded coconut 1 cup raw wheat germ or ground flax (optional)
½ cup sesame seeds cinnamon or ginger or nutmeg (to taste)
1/2 cup oil (more oil will make it crispier) 1/3 cup water
1 tsp vanilla ½ cup honey or maple syrup, or sugar with dry ingred. (to taste)
Raisins or other dried fruit (optional, I add this after cooking or just at the very end of the oven time)
¾ cup nuts (optional)
Combine dry ingredients, then mix up wet ingredients and pour over the dry, and mix well.
Spread fairly thinly on cookie sheets. Bake in preheated oven at 325 for 10 minutes. Remove and stir around on the pan and bake another 5 minutes. Stir again and bake another 5 min, or until desired done-ness. Watch carefully to prevent burning, especially around the edges. Cool, then add raisins or other dried fruit.
