Finally got my hands on some oat groats (raw and unprocessed form of oats) and I am loving it. Personally I am not a fan of cooked oatmeal, so this is a great hearty breakfast that I am loving. Life has been so busy this past month, I really need some easy quick go to recipes. Of course, I still make my smoothies too on most days ;)
Eating these delicious grains are easy. Soaking is the most important. Soak the oat groats 8-10 hours or overnight, rinse and drain. For the buckwheat, soak them for 30 min to 2 hours and rinse thoroughly. They will have a slimy kind of residue. This is normal, just rinse thoroughly and leave in your strainer overnight covered to get a little sprout out of them. Now they are ready to eat.
(You can also just soak your oat groats in your favorite milk in the refrigerator overnight to get them ready to eat as well.)
RAW OAT GROATS OATMEAL WITH SPROUTED BUCKWHEAT AND NECTARINES
2 tablespoons soaked oat groats
2 tablespoons sprouted buckwheat
2 tablespoons raw slivered almonds
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1 nectarine sliced, or your own favorite fruit
Optional, chopped dates or raisins do give it a little more sweetness
Add all the ingredients to your favorite cereal bowl and enjoy! Yup, no guilt eating this breakfast.
