View Full Version : Oat Groats?

If you're not able to locate oat groats, what's the next best thing? The steelcut oats? Wild Oats does carry raw buckwheat (groats?) but I'm not sure what they would be like as oatmeal? Has anyone tried that?
Any suggestions on the oats would be appreciated! :)

I could be wrong but I don't think the steel cut oats would soften without boiling and they wouldn't be useful, plus who knows if they're raw, you'd have to check.
You can make a porridge out of buckwheat groats, I just soak overnight and rinse and put in the food processor with say an apple and some cinnamon, I add a pinch of celtic salt and a squeeze of lemon.

I use and love steel cut oats. It all depends on you and your preferences. IMO, whole oat groats are what are used for regular rolled oats oatmeal and steel cut is like the equivalent of the quick oats oatmeal! :)

I believe the order of oats being processed...
You start with the oat groat...then slightly processed is the steal cut or irish or scottish oat(I believe they are all the same). Then more processed is the rolled oats, and than the quick oats.
