Rolled Oats Giveaway: Roger’s Farmstead

 

Roger’s Farmstead is located on Berlin, VT and is producing a variety of products that I consider everyday must-haves: dairy, grains, meats. Farm owners Nate and Jessie Rogers, along with their young son, are passionate about bringing healthy and quality food to their community and beyond.

Nate and Jessie sent me a bag of their Rolled Oats. I was eager to try them and asked them to share their favorite recipe.

Here is the recipe that Jesse shared with me:

BAKED OATMEAL
3 cups Rogers Farmstead rolled oats
3/4 cup brown sugar (plus additional)
1/2 cup butter or margarine 
2 eggs
2 cups milk, any kind
1/4 cup ground flaxseed (optional)
2 tea baking powder
1 tea salt
2 tea vanilla extract
1 tea cinnamon
1/4 tea nutmeg
Preheat oven to 375. Melt butter, add eggs and milk and whisk together. Add all ingredients, mix and let stand for 5 minutes. Pour into a 13” x 9” buttered or sprayed baking dish and sprinkle with a little brown sugar.
Bake for 25 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.  Serve with dried fruit, nuts, honey, maple syrup, mini chocolate chips or whatever treats you like.
This was delicious! I substituted maple syrup for the brown sugar and did not add the flaxseed. I topped with blueberries and enjoyed a hearty, warm, sweet breakfast (and later a lunch!). This is a recipe that I will use again and again, with more rolled oats from Roger’s Farmstead.

I shared the oats with my friend Lauren who turned them into amazing cookies! The oats provided a chewy and rich base for the raisins and chocolate chips that Lauren added. Here’s Lauren’s recipe:

  1. I adore oats and I eat them every possible way and bake with them too, but my (odd) favorite is dropping an old cold glob of leftover breakfast oats into my 10am smoothie and making it magically creamy and great. Sounds gross, but is fantastic and never fails.
