I love oats. I might have said this before. But I really do. I love the smell of uncooked rolled oats. I love the taste of cooked oats and I love the texture oats add to cookies. I may be the strange one around, many people turn their noses away from oats, it is more like a get-well food but really it isnt! Add some nuts, fruits and you have quite a delicious meal. It’s good that oats as a galactagogue, is great for me! More excuses to nom nom nom!
