We are thrilled to share this very exciting news with you. The Boise expansion will allow us to put our high-protein, low-sugar, lactose-free #DarigoldFIT in the hands of even more consumers. With no artificial ingredients and less resource-intensive packaging, not to mention the nutritional benefits, this is a win win for everyone. As always, a huge thanks to the 430 or so Northwest Dairy Association farm families across Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington who make all of this possible.

Leading Dairy Forward

With over 100 years of operations, our farmer-owned dairy cooperative is excited to start a new century with a new vision: Leading Dairy Forward. Darigold’s team is spread across 11 dairy processing plants in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana and our headquarters is based in Seattle.

  • Is there anything better than waking up to a hot bowl of steel cut oats? Check out our new recipe for thick, creamy steel cut oats slow cooked to tender, chewy perfection overnight — with #DarigoldFIT. Just toss in everything before bed and wake up to a nutritious, satiating breakfast the next morning. Substituting milk for some (or all!) of the water adds creaminess and provides a boost of essential nutrients including protein, Vitamin D, potassium and calcium.
INGREDIENTS  For the oats: 
2 teaspoons coconut oil or oil of choice 
1 cup uncooked steel cut oats (see notes) 
2 cups water 
2 cups Darigold FIT milk 
2 tablespoons brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, agave, or sweetener of choice 
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
Dash of ground nutmeg (optional)
Topping Suggestions 
Chopped toasted pecans or walnuts, granola, raisins, chocolate chips, maple syrup, peanut butter, almond butter, shredded coconut, or any other mix-ins you enjoy.
Steel Cut Oats: Use only regular steel cut oats. Do not substitute instant, quick-cooking, or rolled oats or they will be overcooked.
1. Generously grease the bottom and lower sides of a 4-to-6 quart slow cooker with coconut oil. 
2. Place all of the ingredients (except the toppings) into the slow cooker and stir to combine. 
3. Cover and cook on WARM overnight, approximately 8-9 hours. First thing in the morning, stir well and increase the heat to HIGH for another 30-60 minutes. Oats are done when soft and creamy, but still slightly chewy. For extra creamy oats, stir in another splash of milk just before serving. Enjoy warm with desired toppings.
Serving Size: 1 cup cooked steel cut oats (without toppings)

1 cup Darigold FIT milk 
2 teaspoons white vinegar 
1/3 cup avocado oil (or other neutral-flavored cooking oil) 
1/3 cup packed brown sugar 
1 large egg 
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour (or 50/50 mix whole wheat and all-purpose flour) 
1 cup old-fashioned oats 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1 teaspoon baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
2 1/2 cups grated apple with peel on (from about 2 medium)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour 
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar 
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt 
1/2 stick Darigold unsalted butter at room temperature, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a muffin pan with oil cooking spray. *
For the streusel topping: Mix flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, rub the butter into the mixture until no longer floury and crumbs form. Chill in the freezer until ready to use.
For the buttermilk: Combine the vinegar and milk in a small bowl. Stir well and set aside.
Combine the oil, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract in a blender; pulse a few times to incorporate. Add the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Pulse again until the mixture begins to stick to the sides. Add the buttermilk and apples and mix well with a silicone spatula, scraping the bottom of the blender. Pulse another 3-5 times to incorporate. Scoop batter into the muffin cups; spoon the streusel mixture on top. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until done.
