I hate oatmeal but I love oat grouts | who knew?

Oatmeal

My entire life I have hated hot cooked oatmeal.  I dislike (to be honest HATE) everything about it.  The smell, the sliminess, the taste, how difficult it is to clean the pan.  I could go on and on, but I have read so much about the benefits of oatmeal that I keep trying to find a way to eat it without gagging or eating 10 oatmeal cookies.  For some reason, I can eat the oats in a cookie but NOT if it’s made in a porridge form.  I’ve tried for my entire life to find a way to like it with no success.  BUT … wonder of wonders, I’ve just learned about oat grouts and I love oat grouts, and they can be ground into flour to make cookies.  Who knew?

ALSO: DID YOU KNOW Whole Oat Groats will store for 10 to 15 years in a sealed #10 can or bucket (oxygen absorber included) under ideal storage conditions (cool, dry place). WoW !!


So now I’ll be purchasing some more oat groats.

Click on the video graphic pictured above:  In the video, Carolina shares 3 recipes using oat groats!   I’ll be trying these recipes and adapting them to suit our trastes.

Carrot Cake Oat Groat Porridge – 1 apple – 2 medjool dates – 1 tsp Cinnamon – About 1 ½ – 2 cups of soy milk – ½ oat groats

Oat Groat Budha Bowl Since all you do is just create an awesome budha bowl and the amount of ingredients I used doesn’t affect anything, I used a ratio of 1 cup of oat groats for 2 cups of water and a tsp of marmite, the rest is all your own imagination and suggestions are what I used in the video.

Oat Groat Bean Burgers – 230g red kidney beans – 5 -6 tbsp oat groats – 2 tbsp nutritional yeast – 5 tsp sweet corn – 2 tsp tomato paste – 2 cloves of garlic – – smoked paprika, black pepper to taste – ½ spelt flour
