View Full Version : Oat Groats or Steel Cut Oats
I noticed some of you use Steel Cut Oats for raw breakfast recipies. So steel cut is the way to go then? How about Oat Groats? Anybody try to make recipies from those?

I just bought oat groats last week, and have been making raw oatmeal with them. Usually I just let them soak overnight in some water, then the next day I blend it up in a food processor. I discovered that adding a little almond milk to the food processor helps to make it more creamy. Then I top it with some agave nectar, walnuts, raisins, and maybe some fruit. The last time I used cut up pear. Very good.

Prior to getting my hand-crank grain flaker (which I LOVE, btw!) I only bought steel cut oat groats and I'd soak and then blend up to a sort of oatmeal porridge with fruit, raisins, etc.
Now that I have the flaker, I buy both...I make my own rolled oats using both steel cut and whole oat groats.
To me, the difference is like the difference between Old Fashioned Oats and Quick Cook Oats! ;)
If interested in the grain flaker, go to the top of the page to the little icon with the banana on it - says "Search" and type "grain flaker" into the search box to find the thread(s) that have the link to it. I paid $24 for it (thanks to PixieGreen :) ) and I use it everyday and so do my kids for delicious, very-much-like-cooked-oatmeal oatmeal! Today, my son used some soaked and dehydrated whole oat groats that he rolled with the flaker and made himself some grawnola bars and oat clusters.
