Oat Groats w/ Fruit & Nuts

I love this oat groat recipe served cold for lunch on a hot summer day. On a side note: my dad would call this “horse food” 🙂  This chewy and creamy whole grain oat groats recipe is versatile.  Top it off with the fruit and nut of your choice.  Add some flavor like ground ginger, nutmeg or cinnamon, a little sweetener like honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar, and a little fat like coconut oil or butter and make it thinner with your favorite milk (dairy or alternative).  The term “groats” describes hulled kernels of a cereal grain that has the endosperm, germ, and bran.

Things In My Kitchen:

  • Oat Groats – These are cheaper in the grocery store if you can find them, but order them here if you just want to get started and find them elsewhere for cheaper later.
