View Full Version : Oat Groats

I was searching the raw cereals and it seems that a lot of ppl use soaked oat groats.
Are these the whole ones that sprout? ( are there such a thing)
are these the same as steel cut oats?

If you have a Whole Foods Market or Wild Oats, you'll find you oat grouts in the bulk food section. They're pretty common. Fred Meyer may also have them although I haven't checked.
They take 6 hours to soak and 2 days to sprout. In case you're interested, here's a recipe from "The Raw Truth" by Jeremy Safron that looks good:
2 C sprouted oats
1 C soaked/seeded dates
1 C soaked raisins
1 Tb cinnamon
Homogenize the oats and dates until smooth (I'm sure a food processor would work as well). Stir in raisin and cinnamon. Form 2 Tb of dough into a ball and press into a 1/2" round (use the bottom of a wet glass). dehydrate approx. 18 hours.

Animlover -- are you interested in "raw cereal" like granola or like oatmeal? There are a few fabulous granola recipes using buckwheat and oats (with a bunch of other stuff, 'course) and then there are the smoother cereals where the soaked ingredients are blended/processed. I like using the buckwheat because it's crunchy when dehydrated.
