    Hi Mel, I just wanted to ask you if it’s rolled oats or oat groats being used in this recipe please? Thank you so much. I need some food inspiration so I’m looking though all your recipes, and want to try ALL of them. 😍 I’ve only made the Nacho cheese so far, and that was wonderful! Thank you for sharing all this wonderful information with us. 😊
