I decided to fancy this float up a bit by whipping it all together in the blender, and then putting chocolate sprinkles on the rim of the glass and adding whipped cream. If you're not inclined to get that fancy, you can totally just do the ice cream and root beer portion of this recipe and skip the rest. The entire thing is pretty delicious as a package deal, though — I don't recommend skipping a thing.

Oat Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Oat Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
