Why did the Finns go so crazy for these oats? First, the timing was perfect: high-protein, organic, and plant-based diets were trending all over the world. There are tons of nutritional benefits, from high fiber and protein content to low fat. And oats are essential to Nordic cuisine, so pulled oats were something familiar, just in a new form. And then there's the simplicity of the recipes. These oats are ready to eat or to add in any food, like tacos, pasta sauces, casseroles and stir-fries (pro tip: frying it quickly in a pan makes it even better). The only risk is over-cooking it, resulting in some dried grains.
