One of my favourite things to eat is oatmeal. I usually make it by cooking – how most people would like it – as a smoothie, into pancakes and as a swallow (dough) to eat with Nigerian soups. Few years ago, my friend introduced me to oatmeal swallow (dough) and ever since that moment it has become one of the ways I eat white oats.
