I'm working with Frito-Lay on the review and giveaway! I couldn't find the recipes that my mother and grandmother used to make that reminded me of home. And this recipes isn't necessarily a FL recipe. So, I have decided to share with you a recipe that is a favorite of my family of 3, and reminds me of home here where we eat it! It was made for us to have some thing tasty for breakfast or a snack!
It can be used a mix to give to others at Christmas (the dry ingredients) and they can add the wet ingredients later. My recipe is called Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bread.
Ingredients: 2 cups all -purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats (I usually use the quick oats)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I tend to use walnuts ---and will some times add about 1/4 cup of
coconut to it, too!)
1/2 cup of miniature chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups of buttermilk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup melted butter
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nuts and chocolate chips.
In a small bowl, beat the buttermilk, eggs, and butter. Stir wet ingredients just until evenly moistened (batter will be lumpy). Scrape into a buttered and floured 9 x 5-iinch loaf pan.Bake in a 350 oven ffor about 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes clean.
The two Lay's flavors that I'd like to try out of the Regional ones are the Chipotle Ranch and the Cajun Herb & Spice.
I'd like to share some information with you about the chips! These chips were inspired by popular American regional cuisine and include:
Northeastern U.S. Lay Honey Mustard
Midwestern U.S. Lay's Creamy Garden Ranch
Northwestern U.S. Lay's Balsamic Sweet Onion
Southwestern U.S. Lay's Chipotle Ranch
Southeastern U.S. Lay's Cajun Herb & Spice
* All of the Lay's Regional flavored potato chips are made with all natural ingredients and cooked in
healthier oils, like corn and sunflower oils, which contain 80% or more of polyunsaturated and mono- unsaturated fat-- the "good fats". They also contain 0 grams of trans fats per serving. There's also less sodium in them than you might think---a 1-oz serving of their Lay's Regional FLavored potato chips contains less salt that a plain bagel.
One lucky reader will receive a variety pack of the Lay's Regional Flavors!!
Disclosure: I was given the information and chips for my post from Frito-Lay, and the blog post is a form of entry for the contest. The opinions expressed were my own!
