Another Breakfast of Oats!

I love oats... I love oatmeal... here is my newest way to enjoy them for breakfast!

Oats for Breakfast
- 1 serving

1/2 cup whole oat groats
1 Tablespoon live whey
1 Tablespoon whole wheat flour
1/8 teaspoon salt

24 hours ahead of when you want to serve these, rinse the oat groats (they are just whole oat "berries"), cover them with water, about 2 inches above the oats. Stir in the whey and whole wheat flour. Cover and allow to soak at room temperature.

After 24 hours, drain and carefully rinse. Return the soaked oats to a heavy-bottomed sauce pan.

Add water until it is 1 inch above oats. Bring to a boil and simmer for approximately 30 minutes, tasting a few now and then until they are as tender as you want them to be. Be sure to keep enough water in the pan to cover them.

When the groats are done, strain out any extra water. Serve with butter, milk, and maple syrup.

  1. Thanks for your comment! You can make the Rich, Buttery Crackers any thickness. Simply roll your dough out to the thickness you want them! Every time I make them, they are always different sizes!


    1. Thank you! Made them today and they are very nice!

  2. Where do you buy oat groats? I have never had them. Do they taste like oatmeal flavorwise?

    1. Yes, they taste like oatmeal, only they of course feel differently in your mouth. I buy mine through a food co-op, but I'm sure any health food store would stock them. has them, but rather costly. Here is where my co-op orders, and you can order online and pay shipping.

  3. Thanks, I will have to give them a try.
