Oatmeal Muffin Day, In the News, and Enjoy

Oatmeal Muffin Day - Today is Oatmeal Muffin Day!

Oatmeal muffins are made with the primary ingredient of oatmeal. Additional ingredients may be nearly anything. Most common are raisins, nuts, and chocolate chips.

Oat groats are coarsely ground to make oatmeal, or cut into small pieces to make steel-cut oats, or first steamed and then flattened to make rolled oats. Quick-cooking rolled oats (quick oats) are cut into small pieces before being steamed and rolled. Instant oatmeal is pre-cooked and dried, usually with sweetener and flavoring added.

Both types of rolled oats may be eaten uncooked as in Muesli or may be cooked to make porridge. Both types are also used as an ingredient in oatmeal muffins, oatmeal cookies, and oat cakes. Oatmeal is also sometimes porridge with the bran or fibrous husk as well as the oat kernel or groat. In some countries rolled oats are eaten raw with milk and sugar or raisins. Oatmeal is also used as a thickening agent in soups.
