Ready to Spar for the Spurtle? - Enter to win $5000 in Bob's Red Mill Spar for the Spurtle recipe contest.

You know that I’m a big fan of Bob’s Red Mill. Even before I started working with them in a “professional capacity”, Bob has had his own shelf in my refrigerator. I love that the products are all-natural, GMO-free, and whole grain.

One of our favorite items in their line up is the steel-cut oats. FishBoy16 who’s big into nutrition makes it for himself almost every morning. FishPapa loves it for an early morning, hot, winter breakfast, and I regularly fix up an oatmeal bar for the rest of us.

I love to soak the oats overnight and then cook them quickly on the stove the next morning. The nutty goodness is amazing and goes really well with a little cream and maple syrup. Mmmmm.

Currently, Bob’s Red Mill is running their Fourth Annual Spar for the Spurtle Recipe Contest. The contest runs through August 15th. The prizes are pretty awesome: First place: $5000, Second place: $2500, Third place: $1000

Time to get cooking people!

Be creative with your use of steel cut oats and you could take home a boat load of cash.

  1. Thanks for the opportunity. I will definitely look into this. I am a huge fan of BRM products. I, too, soak my steel cut oats overnight and cook them quickly in the morning. I haven’t branched out with them more than that. Perhaps now I have a reason to. Thanks, again!
