McCann'sAbout McCann’s
The story of McCann’s dates back to 1800 when John McCann built a mill at Beamond, on the east coast of Ireland. John McCann’s Irish oatmeal secured many prizes for its excellent quality over the years and the company continued to grow steadily. A piece of McCann’s history was created in August 2005 when for the first time production of the trademark 28-ounce tin of steel cut oats exceeded 1 million tins for a twelve month period.

McCann’s has been making the classic oatmeal product for more than 150 years – and it has changed very little in that time–it is still the same real thing. McCann’s is best known for its classic steel cut oats packed in the iconic 28-ounce tin. However, there are many other tasty products available–quick cooking oatmeal, instant oatmeal, and oat bran.

All McCann’s products are non-GMO. They are specially grown by local farmers–there are no GMO oat crops grown in Ireland.

Another experiment. They could be a little sweeter. I need to buy some date paste or date juice I think to sweeten them up a bit. I hate to rely on Splenda as a "healthy" way to sweeten things. Anyone else have ideas for ways to sweeten cookies up a bit without using maple syrup or sugar?

1/2 CUP WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR
1/4 CUP UNBLEACHED FLOUR
1/2 TSP SALT
1/2 TSP BAKING POWDER
1/2 TSP BAKING SODA
1/4 TSP CORNSTARCH
1 TBSP COCOA
3 TBSP PEANUT BUTTER
1 TBSP CINNAMON
3 TBSP OLIVE OIL
3 TBSP UNSWEETENED APPLESAUCE
3/4 CUP SPLENDA
2 TBSP HONEY
1/2 CUP VANILLA SOY YOGURT
1 TBSP VANILLA EXTRACT
2 1/2 CUPS ROLLED OATS
4 TBSP VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIPS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place rack in middle of oven. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cocoa and cornstarch into a bowl and set aside.

In a food processor, add oil, applesauce, sugar, honey, yogurt, cinnamon, peanut butter and vanilla. Pulse into a consistency much like a regular cookie dough would be before the flour is added.

Transfer mixture into a bowl and slowly stir in the dry flour mixture. When combined and smooth, add the rolled oats and chocolate chips.

Spoon one inch balls onto cookie sheets. Cook for 7-8 minutes, you want them somewhat softish.

Recipe should make 48 cookies.

Banana Oatmeal Walnut Breakfast Cookies

Those who follow this photo stream (or at least the "From Renée’s Kitchen" set) would probably conclude that I’m obsessed with 3 things:

Bread
Large muffin tops
Banana bread

How true it is as this past week I baked another 3 loaves (no, I *only* ate half of those myself – I gave 2 loaves away) and one whole batch of banana oatmeal walnut breakfast "cookies." After surprising D with a loaf (she’s been having a craving apparently due to all the posts I’ve put up of this sweet baked good), she reminded me of how good it is with the addition of toasted oats. The next batch I made for myself, I took that idea, but wanted to incorporate more of the sweet taste from the caramelized exposed surface, so I baked them flat (muffin amount) on a baking sheet (like cookies). Essentially I made muffin tops (but used silpats on baking sheets instead of my muffin top pan) but a lot flatter. They’re perfect first thing in the morning with a large cup of soymilk tea after a short "toast" in my toaster oven. 🙂
