Oatmeal Cream Based Clam Chowder

Oatmeal can be used to replace part or all of the wheat flour in your recipes.

One easy way to do this is to substitute oats for making white sauce.

A delicious cream based chowder, this recipe calls for the standard chowder ingredients: onion, potatoes, bacon, clams, and milk.

Oats is added to thicken the Clam chowder soup.
