Mornflake Hamper Giveaway

Oats are one of those ingredients that we seldom give much thought (or praise) to but which are at the core of some truly wonderful recipes.

So it’s lovely to be able to share a giveaway from British oat brand, Mornflake. Mornflake has been milling oats since 1675, making it the longest-established miller of oats and cereal in the UK. The South Cheshire company is still owned and managed by descendants of the original miller, 15 generations down the line. You can read more about the history of Mornflake, here and of course, more about their product range.

  1. Suelle

    As you’ve featured one of my recipes, I have to say that my favourite use of oats is to add some texture to a fruit crumble!

  2. Sylvia

    It’s an ‘oat’ so attractive prize for us. Packed with lovely goodies.
    The link on facebook didn’t work but I left a comment.

  3. Sus Chalmers

    I’ve been enjoying some lovely fresh fish coated with coarse or pinhead oatmeal – herring and mackerel are great this way, especially with new potatoes – seasonal food at its best 🙂

  4. Sus Chalmers

    followed on Facebook – nice find, thank you Jane Willis!

    I’ve also liked your page (which looks fab!). My facebook name is Jen Russon

  6. Mary

    Peasant pudding which is apple puree topped with an oats topping of oat melted butter and demerera sugar

  7. Elaine Flockhart

    I love making my own ‘hob nob’ style biscuits, they’re very more-ish!

  8. Rachel Sollick

    I’ve just this weekend made up some rhubarb crumble with your oats and some homegrown rhubarb, delicious!

  9. Lorna Kennedy

    Cranachan (must easier to eat than to spell!). Facebook name is Lorna Kennedy.

    It hardly qualifies as a recipe, but it’s my favourite way to eat oats in winter.

    I make a porridge by adding a spoonful of chia seeds and a little water to soak (once cooked, the chia seeds give the porridge a creamier texture), then chop in a banana, crumble in some walnuts, add a spoonful of sultanas, X spoonfuls of oats depending on level of hunger, a corresponding amount of water to give the desired consistency, and a good-sized amount of mixed spice. Stir together, and microwave as per model instructions (I have a 900W which I do on 80% for 2 mins 20 secs).

    I often add coconut oil to it once it’s cooked and it’s delicious – like banana bread in a bowl and who wouldn’t love that first thing on a cold, grey morning?

  11. Liz

    I love to make homemade granola, my current favourite is the maple-pecan granola from Smitten Kitchen, and I think the next batch will have seeds and oatbran for a crunchy, nutty flavour.

  12. Hilda Hazel Wright

    I love flapjacks and various cakes and biscuits with oats, but since I avoid all of that like mad, I stick to my favourite porridge which I have every day. I make it with water and cinnamon and then when cooked I stir in a dash of milk.

  13. Karen Lloyd

    Blueberry flapjacks, in fact I have just made some this morning with the blueberries that I picked from my garden last night.

  14. Carol Greenfield

    Organic Oats, they are ideal for my porridge but put them in my crumble and treacle tart.

  15. Mary

    I make my own muesli with Mornflake oats, adding chopped nuts, chopped dried apricots and dates, figs, raisins and dessicated coconut. Sometimes add sesame, pumpkin and sunflowers seeds. Delicious and super healthy.

  16. Gillian

    We love apple & blackberry (picked with our 2 boys in the local woods) crumble, made with an oaty, nut & coconut crumble topping 🙂 x

  17. Michelle Austin

    Liked on FB. I’m fanatical about flapjacks but have to watch how many I eat, lol!

  18. maxine partridge

    maxine M partridge (facebook) I only really make flapjack. need to find something new

  19. Mojca

    My favourite is good old porridge, possibly with a slight twist such as almond milk instead of cow’s and honey to sweeten. Mmmm! P.S. Love the competition you’re running! 🙂

  20. adele leek

    When I make a fruit crumble I mix about 2 oz of oats into the recipe as well so it gives it a better texture.

  21. Caroline H

    I add oats to muffins and banana bread – it gives a great texture and makes them a little bit healthier.

  22. Sarah Birkett

    fruity energy bars ( no added sugar ) , also try adding a (very) small handful to mince. Changes the taste a little but makes it creamier and makes the mince go further

  23. Hazel Lemar

    Marzipan and dried cherry flapjacks. The slightly tart taste of the cherrys combine beautifully with the sweetness of the marzipan in this oaty combination.

  24. Victoria N

    I love making my own home-made flapjacks with lots of added honey and raisins.

  25. ValB

    I always add oats and brown sugar to flour and butter to make a great topping for an apple or other fruit crumble

  26. Louise Comb

    I make a vegetable bake with a crunchy oat and stilton crust/topping. It’s so easy and so tasty. For the topping I just crumble the oats and cheese together, add it generously to the bake and then, well, I bake it 🙂

  27. Kiran Parry

    flapjacks. I absolutely love these and when I was in school I use to regularly take these to eat on my break. I love the chocolate chip ones.

  28. Jean Bolsover

    I like to make flapjacks, they are quick and easy. Sometimes I add bits of chocolate or fruit for that added bit of flavour

  29. Susan Elai Carter

    I love making a tray bake of oats, dried fruit, chopped up dates or apricots, (depending on what is lurking in my cupboard), golden syrup and butter. Sometimes it turns out chewy and some times crunchy but it always taste yummy.

  30. katrina walsh

    I make a dessert is summer by putting a layer of fruit in the bottom of a glass (usually blackberries or strawberries), then mixing some oats, butter and sugar together and covering the fruit with it, I repeat this until I reach the top of the glass the cover it with fromage frais and a piece of whichever fruit ive used at the bottom.

  31. Sarah Wilk

    I’m 5 months pregnant and I dream of flapjacks so I’d put those oats to good use! x

  32. Barbara Handley

    Oats and banana pancakes. My mother used to make these delicious pancakes as a special treat.

  33. Claire Victoria

    This looks amazing, my favourite has to be flapjack – bit naughty though! X

  34. Rebecca Griffiths

    Pancakes. Mix oats with a yoghurt and an egg and fry up add lots of fruit x

  35. Jocelyn

    Apple and Blackberry crumble replacing half the flour in the topping with oats

  36. Eleanor Wigmore

    My new one is overnight oats: oats, milk, honey, chia seeds & yogurt. Overnight in the fridge and add fruit the next day. Yum!

  37. Helen Metcalfe

    Im a follower on FB, name – Helen Cardy.
    I love oats, could eat porridge everyday, like to put different toppings on and I love to do a crumble with an oat topping also.

  38. Emma Jackson

    Homemade muesli. Otas, sugar, raisins, nuts, bran, cranberries, banana chips etc. It’s great because it’s different every time you make it 🙂 xx

  39. Stephanie Whitehouse

    oats, sugar and butter used as topping instead of crumble – quick and tasty

  40. Louise

    Flapjack is our favourite, it’s great for the kids lunchboxes & I can usually hide something healthy in there like seeds & nuts without them noticing.

  41. Wendy Tolhurst

    One of my friends makes a wicked mushroom quiche where, instead of making a pastry base, she uses oats for the base – it is absolutely delicious.

  42. Jane Middleton

    Love porridge oats mixed with sunflower seeds and grape nuts for breakfast and Scottish oatcakes for snack

  43. christy beckett

    My children and I love making and eating oat bran muffins, healthy alternative to chocolate chip x

  44. Lindy Hine

    I like to add oats to the topping for a blackberry and apple crumble to give it a crunchier texture

  45. Heather Jenkinson

    I love making flapjacks, with lovely brown sugar, organic butter and of course oats! To be really scrummy and naughty, we ad chocolate chips! Nom nom nom! 🙂
