Win Organic Rolled Oats from Tropical Traditions


Oats are a regular staple in our house. In fact, I think we probably eat them every day. Whether it is homemade instant oatmeal packets, oatmeal, homemade granola bars, or granola, oats are a daily part of our good eating. They are more filling than other cereals, giving us a stick-to-yer-ribs start on the day.

Recently, I had a chance to test out Tropical Traditions Organic Rolled Oats. I loved the fact that they were organic, lifting a little weight from my conscience. I try to cook organic when possible. I try not to make an idol out of it. But, I do prefer it.

These oats also worked perfectly in a number of family-favorite recipes:

I usually keep both rolled oats and quick oats on hand. Quick Oats work great in instant oatmeal and baked goods, but I prefer the sturdier texture of rolled to put in recipes like those above.

Tropical Traditions products are some of my favorite. I absolutely love their coconut oil and shredded coconut. Their packaging is bulk so I know it will last me awhile. And they often feature sales. You can follow them on twitter or on Facebook to keep up with their specials.

This weekend one Good Cheap Eater will win a big bag of Organic Rolled Oats.

    My absolute favorite way to cook with oats is making oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! My dear Grandma Clenna (who is now in heaven), used to make these for me when I was a little girl. She would make several batches and store them in her deep freezer. I remember going to her house and immediately opening up her deep freezer to see if she had some ready for me:) I remember her and that very special part of my childhood every time I make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for myself or my two boys today.

  97. Erin Slattery says:

    I like frying some diced apples and bananas in light margarine, like Smart Balance, then towards the end of cooking time add 1 tbsp brown sugar, set aside. Then fry oatmeal and some chopped nuts (any kind) in the same butter. Once slightly browned top the banana-apple mix, top with light cool whip or low cal vanilla ice-cream and enjoy :)

    I make the ultimate Scottish cookie (also known as biscuit)
    It goes by the name of Melting Moments, is simple to make, using few ingredients, and a crisp texture that is just out of this world.
    Porridge oats are a mainstay of Scottish kitchens, and are so versatile. Oatmeal’s such a popular breakfast dish.
    In this recipe the oats add a crunch to the outside of the cookie……
    Now, where’s that cup of coffee?
