       Oats are used in a variety of culinary ways, and usually are known for being rolled and crushed as oatmeal or ground into oat flour. Oatmeal is, of course, commonly eaten as hot cereal, but it is also used in goodies like oat bread, granola or as oatmeal cookies. Oats also can be used for brewing beer.1


       At the Salish Lodge & Spa in Snoqualmie, Washington, the Bircher-Brenner Muësli can be enjoyed, combining rolled oats, grains and cereals with nuts and fruit. For a main course, enjoy the Santa Fe Chicken Rolls from Cal-A-Vie in Vista, California, which are rolled in oats before baking for a crunchy coating, and dessert at Tennessee Fitness Spa in Waynesboro, Tennessee, is a must, especially when it includes the delectable and healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. At the Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa in Teton Village, Wyoming, the Cascade Granola combines rolled oats, seeds, nuts and honey, and see Ludlow, Vermont’s Green Mountain at Fox Run’s signature Green Mountain Granola recipe from Executive Chef Jon Gatewood for an easy, tasty treat.
