Using Quaker Wholegrain Oats

The Quaker Oats Wholegrain Cookbook is a 63-page recipe book published by the Quaker Oats Company in 1978. The booklet provides an introduction to the world of wholegrain foods and nutrition and promotes wholegrain oats as a good source of dietary fiber for both children and adults.

Five ways to use wholegrain oats in the preparation of healthy, nutritious meals are shown. Each of the five concepts are explained, along with suggestions for use and basic recipes:
  1. Make your own wholegrain oat flour at home in your blender or food processor in 60 seconds.
  2. Use wholegrain oats or ground oat flour to thicken soups, gravies, sauces, stews and puddings.
  3. Toasted oats can add a slightly crunchy texture to many foods.
  4. Make a wholegrain Add-A-Crunch topping and add crunchy good taste and texture to your favorite foods.
  5. Make big, fluffy wholegrain Golden Oats to use just like rice.

Recipe categories include Breakfast; Soups, Salads and Accompaniments; Breads; Main Dishes; Desserts; and Cookies and Snacks. Some recipes are suitable for the microwave as well as conventional ovens. Recipes easy enough for a child to make are marked as such.

This is a great cookbook and it has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years as more people look at their diet as an important tool in preventing and controlling cholesterol levels, diabetes and other chronic diseases.
