Last week, we told you all about our amazing trip to Flahavan’s HQ, and told you that Mary Flahavan herself cooked us a meal that we are still talking about. Today, we bring you some of Mary’s totally amazing recipes, all incorporating how to cook with oats in ways that we hadn’t thought of before. Oats are one of nature’s most humble superfoods – great value and wonderfully versatile. Try some of these recipes and like us, find yourself astounded at how far the oat can bring your weekly recipe repertoire.
