The ingredients list says 4 cups of water, the directions say 2. I think the list is right.

The correct ratio for preparing oat groats is 1 cup groats to 3 cups water plus 1/4 tsp salt, if desired. If you'd like to try the double boiler method, you will need to use 4 cups of water.

Oat Groats are very hard when dry and cooking to soften is recommended.

Great Recipe Bob! I've cut back on groats and add forbidden black rice, honey, vanilla and 1/4 dried fruit for an outstanding morning breakfast. Thanks for the recipe.

thanks so much for the recipe. I was just wondering, can I add 2 cups of water and 1 cup of milk to make it extra creamy?

You may replace all or a portion of the water called for in this recipe. Doing so will help create a creamier texture. Be mindful to stir frequently as milk tends to scorch.
