"Groat" is an old Scottish word from hundreds of years ago that refers to cereal made from whole, hull-less oats. Our Organic Whole Oat Groats take a bit longer to prepare than cut or rolled oats, but the exceptionally hearty flavor and chewy subtlety of this wholesome porridge make it well worth the wait. Oat groats are also an excellent addition to your lunch or dinner menu. Use oat groats in place of rice for a hearty pilaf or in a cold grain salad.

Oats are higher in protein and healthy fats, and lower in carbohydrates than most other whole grains. They contain more soluble fiber than any other grain. They also have the best amino acid balance of all the cereal grains.

I enjoy the fact that these are minimally processed and all the good nutrition is available.
- Same amount of fiber in whole, steel cut, or rolled oats
Whole oat groats have same amount of fiber, 5 g., as steel cut and rolled. Only difference is need 50 min. to cook but can soak ahead of time. This makes them sprouted and better for you. I don't know why.
