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 can be almost anything. Common ingredients are raisins, nuts, and chocolate chips. The level of sweetness can also vary greatly.

Oat groats are coarsely ground to make oatmeal, cut into small pieces to make steel-cut oats, or first steamed and then flattened to make rolled oats.

Quick-cooking rolled oats are cut into small pieces before being steamed and rolled. Instant oatmeal is pre-cooked and dried—generally with sweetener and flavoring added. Both types of rolled oats may be eaten uncooked as in Muesli or may be cooked to make porridge.

It is also used as an ingredient in oatmeal muffins, oatmeal cookies, oat cakes, as an accent (as in the topping on many oat bran breads), and the coating on Caboc cheese.

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 savory Arabic/Egyptian thick meat plus vegetable soups.
