Bob’s Red Mill – “Whole grain foods for every meal of the day.” With over 400 products Bob’s Red Mill is an amazing site and resource for whole grain products, gluten free products and certified organic products.
Located in Milwaukie, Oregon, Bob’s Red Mill is not just a store but also a restaurant. You can also take tours of the actual mill. It makes a great family outing or field trip! Tours of the mill are available Monday through Friday and begin at 10:00 a.m.
The selection of whole grains, flours, cereals etc. is amazing and I could have spent all day wandering the aisles. You can buy their products packaged or in bulk (you save money by buying bulk)
I picked up some steel cut oats, whole wheat pastry flour, granola and almond flour while I was there.
If you get hungry while you are there you can have breakfast or lunch at the restaurant which is open until 3 p.m. each day. There is lots of whole grain goodness on the menu.
I enjoyed breakfast there with some girlfriends. One friend ordered the grits, which if you like grits, I guess are fabulous.
Another ordered the polenta which came with fresh blueberries – the polenta does take 15 minute to prepare.
I went for the Belgian waffle with real maple syrup.
I think the best thing on the menu is their amazing scratch biscuits! They are huge, light and fluffy!!
There is also a vegetarian menu available.
A trip to Bob’s Red Mill is a fun and tasty adventure.
