Why I love Red Tractor Foods by Emily Scott

I don’t know about you, but I love supporting Australian companies. I feel as if these company’s products taste better and are usually much healthier for you.

Red Tractor Foods is family owned and supports a number of Australian families and farmers by producing healthy Australian made products.

The company has two products lines, one for adults and one for children. Products that you may or may not have seen by Red Tractor Foods include 100% instant oats, Rolled oats, Protein oats, Steel cut oats, Honey nut crumble granola, Golden banana crumble granola, Bircher muesli pots, Banana oat muffins…

I’ve tried quite a few of their products and everything I’ve had I would recommend. I especially love their protein and rolled oats that feature in the recipe below.


Raspberry and Pear Crumble

Serves 6

Ingredients:

1 cup raspberry

1 cup pears, diced

¼ cup maple syrup

 

Crumble:

¾ cup Red Tractor rolled or protein oats

2 tbsp flour

1 tbsp flaked almonds

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp maple syrup

 

Preheat the oven to 350/180.

Divide the berries and pears between 2 ramekins and drizzle half the maple syrup on top of the berries and put to one side.

Put the oats, flour and almonds in a bowl and stir then use your fingers to rub the oil into the mixture until it looks like breadcrumbs. Next stir through the rest of the maple syrup. Divide the mixture between the two ramekins and bake in the oven for  20-25 mins until golden brown on top.

Keep a close eye on the crumbles to ensure they don’t burn.

They taste lovely hot or cold, served with yogurt.
