About the Recipe

Oat groats are packed with nutrition. Oat groats are the "original" oat - before they become rolled oats or steel cut oats. I love the texture better than normal oatmeal and it is certainly much easier to clean up than oatmeal! Toppings are so easy to mix and match. I often prefer to eat oat groats cold and will eat for breakfast or lunch!


  • 1 cup oat groats

  • 2 cups water

  • Desired toppings

    • Banana

    • Walnuts/Almonds/Pecans

    • Chia Seed/Flax Seed

    • Maple Syrup/Honey

    • Cinnamon

    • Nut Butter


Step 1

The night before, add oat groats and water to a pot. Bring to a boil. (For a slightly different texture, you can bring the water to a boil and then add the oat groats for 1-2 minutes while boiling).

Step 2

Once at a boil, ensure pot is covered and let sit until the morning.

Step 3

In the morning, you can reheat the groats to warm up and help evaporate the remaining water or you can eat cold.

Step 4

Add toppings as desired and enjoy! Store in the fridge.
