Oatmeal can be used for more  than just basic porridge for example an American entrant last year entered  Black Bean Porridge Patties, which looked delicious.”

I love cooking with oats as they are so good for you and personally I love the taste of them. Oats are also rumoured to help eczema suffers and my oldest son has had eczema all of his life so we try to include oats in recipes whenever we can!

This recipe was supplied to me by Mornflake Oats, it is not a sponsored post – just a recipe I liked the look of!
