"Groat" is an old Scottish word from hundreds of years ago that refers to cereal made from whole, hull-less oats. They 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.
Scores of studies have documented the many health benefits of oats. The FDA says that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol and rich in fruits, vegetables, and grain products like oats that contain of dietary fiber, particularly soluble fiber, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Oats help you feel fuller longer, which helps control your weight. Oats may also help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, since their soluble fiber helps control blood sugar. 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.

- Nutty taste unlike oatmeal.
Oat groats, almond milk, blueberries & cinnamon best breakfast in the world. I don't like oatmeal but love oat groats ! 2 cups groats to 4.25 water bring to a boil & simmer for 45 to minutes. Will keep for days in refrigerator.
- Love my oat groats!
- I cook these overnight in the slow cooker on low. I use a 50/50 blend of water and milk, plus cinnamon and dried fruit. They come out perfect and delicious every time. My favorite breakfast!
- Sprout them first!!
- Soak them for 12 hours, drain (and keep) the water. Then let them sit for 24 - 48 hours and wait for them to begin to sprout (just barely see the roots starting). THEN eat them. They taste so much better and they're softer. Add the sprouted groats to protein shakes and use the water that you kept from soaking them!!
- Even Better than Steel Cut Oats
- Undoubtly better than Steel cut oats (and those are darn good). See my review of steel cut. The differences are these - the whole oat groats are a bit nuttier/granier (which I like) and most notably, there is little pasty like texture between grains when cooked. Almost rice like, but with all the flavor of oats.||Okay, the one drawback is the long cook time - 50 minutes +. But so worth it. My
- If you already love steel ...
If you already love steel cut oats, you'll be delighted at first taste of these full-bodied, richly flavored oat groats.
