I sneak oats into a lot of the things I bake. Like oaty biscuits or crumble topping, or coating for chicken dippers… obviously they’re included in good old fashioned porridge and well, they’re regular star players in any bread I bake. You could say we like our oats in the Bell household. They are after all very good for you.
So I was very pleased when Ireland’s top producer of oats, Flahavan’s got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to run a baking with kids (using oats of course) competition with them. All you have to do is make something oaty with your child/relative/friend’s kid who are under 18 and then either tweet the picture to both me @HollyBellMummy and @FlahavansUK OR upload a pic to my facebook page and Flahavan’s facebook page. Please don’t forget to tell us what it is!
You must upload to both or tweet to both of us otherwise your entry isn’t valid. You can do both if you like but your entry will still count as one entry only. The prize will be a parent and child apron set, some gorgeous bamboo utensils and the full range of Flahavan’s oaty goodies to try. Not bad for a spot of baking! Here’s the lovely bamboo utensils:
This competition runs for two weeks, one starting today with the closing date and time being midday on Monday 20th August 2012. The next competition starts at 12.01pm on Monday 20th August and runs until the following Monday 27th August 2012 closing at midday again. There will be two prizes each week – one entrant will be chosen at random using a computer. The other will be chosen by myself, the people at Flahavan’s and 4 judges (4 other Mums I know) and we will base our choice very simply on the oaty creation we would most like to make and eat with our families. We will aim to let the winners know by the Friday after the closing day via facebook and/or Twitter.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
