Taste from Home with Frito-Lay (review and giveaway!) US only. ENDS 8/30/11

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!
