Why you’ll love Roasting Oats in the oven

There’s something special about the smell of vanilla and cinnamon baking in the oven. The perfume of oats toasting in the oven is warming to the soul. Personally I’m a huge believer that smell can impact the mind and trigger happy memories, I’m no scientist, but I’m pretty sure there is science to back that up. So, I’ll take that and run with it, baking delicious smelling foods for my family when ever possible. Making huge batches of these Cinnamon Toasted Oats, during the cold start of fall mornings, could not be a more simplistic way to bring happiness into your home.

      Hi Margaret, typically I keep mine anywhere from 3-5 days in the air tight container. Most days they do not even last this long though. Enjoy
