    And don't say worlds largest ANZAC biscuit, or you die :p

    Have been looking for recipes and though the first idea was to make ANZAC's, one cup yields about 24 biscuits. I'd be feeding an army with 2kg.

    I know there is porridge as well, but it's still a bit of an ask for me.

    Any ideas?

    Its not something that is going to go off quickly. Keep it in a airtight container and your right as rain.

    Where do you get an airtight container that big, I guess you could make a storage bin shaped biscuit.

    some sort of oat slice. honey, brown sugar, butter, peanut butter. experiment a bit, you've got plenty of oats to spare...

    or put through the blender and add to pancakes, breads etc

    You sound like you're not aware that there is the possibility of not eating it all at once :confused:

    If you hate slop porridge, heat the oats in the pot for ~5 mins to 'cook' them a bit, then add boiling water to cover & boil for ~5 mins. Just make sure to move it around so it don't burn/stick. Add honey + cinnamon = very nice. Gives you something to chew.

    Take it to a shelter or foodbank type thing - they'll take them off your hands I imagine.



    Just kidding - throw them off the roof - Oat Confetti!

    How much space do you think 2kg's of rolled oats takes up?

    A large flour container is where i keep mine, and it holds just shy of 2kg's of oats (Have been makiing ALOT of Anzacs lately to send to my bro overseas). 2kg's wouldnt make much of a dent in a storage bin.

    you could always portion it into small ziplock bags and give it to people begging for money because they are hungry...

    This is a good idea. Oat flour is great, and ridiculously good for you. If you have a coffee/spice grinder (not a burr grinder) you can powder that stuff in no time. Even go a 50/50 mix with normal flour.
    And 2kg isn't THAT much, especially when you consider that it lasts for about 2 years. Chuck it in some ice cream containers and store it at the back of the pantry for a rainy day.
