The Tastemakers

MEET THE TOASTED OAT TASTEMAKERS

Our family is known for having a sweet tooth (or teeth). Gatherings are always topped off with a indulgent treat—baked from scratch and shared. My Grandfather Steve’s famous reply to the often asked question, “Cake or pie?” “Yes.” We couldn’t agree more, Grandpa.
And our family of tastemakers is keeping the spirit alive.

Recipe No. 01
The Original
  • Margaret Kelley, born 1919
  • Loving and dedicated mother, grandmother, and wife to grandpa Steve
  • Margaret loved to bake and, perhaps even more, she loved sharing her treats with family and friends. She was constantly whipping up cookies, pies, breads, and of course, granola! Then, with treats wrapped so tightly they could survive a trip to the moon (think aluminum foil, a couple of Ziploc bags and a bare minimum of two rubber bands), she was off to distribute her devotion to her six children and their families.
  • We love you, Grandma, and we are on a mission to share your treats, the same way you would have!
