Toasted Barley Flakes?

Has anyone found an awesome use for Toasted Barley Flakes? I accidentally bought a bag of these instead of rolled oats. This mornings breakfast was ... less than wonderful and I have a pound of this stuff to use up...

I suppose you could add them to soups (beef barley) and stews.
Also, try them in any recipes that call for oatmeal. How about barley raisin cookies.
Barley bread??

Add them to homemade muesli or granola.

I would hide some in a meatloaf every now and then until it is gone.

THESE RECIPES should keep you busy until the bag runs out.

This idea worked! The birds also like the barley flake enhanced muffins that my family politely picked at.

Just don't feed them to my horse, please.

Barley, which is normally good for horses or at worst is a bit rich and gives them skin bumps, turns him from a laid back, can't-be-bothered-being-spooky, you're-disturbing-my-nap kinda guy to a dangerous lunatic overnight! Long story but I ended up unconscious in an ambulance!
