Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain Oat Groats -- 29 oz
think of it as rice, not morning gruel
This isn't like oatmeal at all. It's more like flavorful rice. It takes longer to cook than rice, but has same size, shape and heavier texture. Much better for you than rice. I serve this exclusively instead of rice and I've never had anyone figure it out--they just think it's tasty rice. This can be eaten for breakfast like oatmeal, but it doesn't resemble the texture of oatmeal at all because it's firmer and not gummy.

Yummier than rolled or steel cut oats.

If you like steel cut, you'll love this, too
These do take a lot more effort to cook than rolled or steel cut oats, but they're well worth the effort. One needs to start the night before. Toast them in a dry pan. Add water to the hot groats. Low boil & stir until the "creaminess" starts to emerge. Turn down to low & simmer for 50 minutes. Stir in a dollop of yogurt (active culture). Let sit overnight on the top of the stove. Next morning, add a little salt, butter, & apple pieces--cook 10 minutes. YUM!

Where I live you can only buy oat groats in 50# bags, so I was very happy to find these on Vitacost. I love that each grain retains it's shape making for an interesting bite and texture. The mush of oatmeal just does not cut it for me.
We add ground flax seed, sesame, sunflower and pumpkin seeds along with raisins. Delicious!
I don't like being without oat groats.

One of my favorite breakfasts
This was a totally new product to me up to a few months ago. I had to go off wheat on doctor's advise, and he suggested oat grouts as an alternative to my favorite hot cereal. Takes a while to cook, but I make up a big batch and freeze the leftovers in individual packets. It's easy to pop in the microwave and thaw out while I am sautéing apples or pears in some butter to top it off when it is hot. Yummy!
