Directions

  • 1. OPTIONAL TO SOFTEN: The night before, throw the water, raisins and then the steel cut oats into your blender. Let them sit overnight.
  • 2. In the morning, start your blender (and if you didn't soak the night before, throw the water, raisins and then the steel cut oats into your blender). While the water and oats are blending, chop the apple and then add it to the blender, too.
  • 3. Continue blending until the oatmeal is a nice, smooth texture.
  • 4. Eat! I love to top this oatmeal with more whole raisins and a sprinkle of cinnamon. This recipe for raw oatmeal makes for a very filling breakfast.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

In the morning, my raw food breakfast is almost always either fresh fruit, a green smoothie, or--my favourite--raw oatmeal.

This recipe does take a bit of preparation because it should be soaked overnight, but, with only a few ingredients, it's so easy! (PS: You can do it without soaking but it won't be as smooth)

If you click on this photo you can see the high-resolution version, which shows you how smooth and creamy this oatmeal is.

All this without "cooking" anything.

Of course, like any good oatmeal, top this recipe with fruit or whatever suits your fancy!

PS: It has recently come to my attention that the rawness of steel cut oats and even oat groats in this recipe is disputed! Check out this discussion on the raw nature of oats.

This looks delicious! I'd love to try this with some of our sprouted groats- especially the comment about the "oatmeal hot chocolate"! Yum! Montana Gluten Free Processors produces raw oat groats and raw oatmeal that hasn't been steamed, steeped, or heated. Plus, our oats are higher in protein than conventional oats! If you have any questions regarding the "rawness" of oats, please feel free to reach out. We'd love to help educate raw foodies about all the benefits of truly raw oatmeal :)

On the other hand... I was emptying the extra oatmeal out of the blender and some was stuck at the bottom, so I put some water in and whizzed to clear it out, and was struck by inspiration - added a couple of teaspoons of raw cacao powder and some honey, whizzed again until the jug felt warm and lo and behold! Creamy, frothy raw 'hot' chocolate! Every cloud....

Oh dear, Is everyone going to hate me for only rating this 3 stars? Usually I love your recipes, Laura-Jane, but for me, this was too sticky and gloopy. The taste and creamy quality were fine, just the texture wasn't right (for my taste) I think I'll try it again with less oats and more apple - I really would love to love this!

I wonder if it would work without blending? I mean, let the oats soak in the liquid and just eat it without whipping it all up? Just a thought. I love raw oatmeal. I am going to try this one tomorrow and was wondering from the picture about the texture of it. I usually just use raw oatmeal (not the steel cut but the regular flakes) and soak it overnight in water then blend it just enough but not all the way and add banana slices, cinnamon, a few almond slivers, and almond milk to it. Perhaps it's just the type of oats that you are working with, Jeni.

Hi Lisa, I had the same thought. I have used regular oatmeal the same way you do, soaking overnight in water, then adding fresh fruit etc. in the morning. Done that for years and I love it too. But this time I was using the steel cut oats and have the coarse cut variety, so I followed Laura-Jane's recipe. I'll try soaking the steel-cut ones and see how that goes. :-)

The raw oatmeal is great! I've been having it for breakfast every day for a week. They are good with/without the apple, peeled/not peeled, and definitely with extra cinnamon. They are very filling. Sometimes I eat half and store the remainder in the fridge. I bring to room temp before eating as I don't like them cold. Thanks for the recipe. I wondered how I would replace my steel cut oats!

I didn't try this recipe although it looks like a good one. However, you can't really call it "raw" if you use steel-cut oats. Only oat groats are raw. You can call it uncooked oatmeal, but not raw...

Sounds great but do you realize that steel cut oats are not raw at all and there is a really raw option? I have made oatmeal with living oats..just soak them overnight..and put in food processor next morning with raisins, nuts, seeds, etc....Steel cut oats are heated to keep them from spoiling on shelf.

Jaffe Brothers has sproutable oats. I buy the hulless variety..soak over night and just throw in food processor. Saw this done on Rawfully Tempting's site. The oats do sprout if you want to make sprouted oat flour for other projects but for oatmeal, just soak them overnight to germinate them. Delicious too! Love your site!

I am new to raw eating (bout 2 months now). I was sprouting oats,buckwheat and sesame for a day or two after soaking overnight, and have been eating this with berries every morning. However, now that it is cold here I don't find this satisfying. I want something warmer. So I ground raw oats in my vitamix with hemp seeds, chia seeds, dehydrated rosehips, some hazelnuts, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. I fill a small bowl with hot water and stir about 7 tsp of the mixture into it and let it sit covered for 5 minutes or so(not too long, I want it warm.) It thickens into a porridge, and tasted unusual at first, but more appealing (to me) with each mouthful. Is it still considered raw if I use hot (not boiling water?) I do not have time to prepare breakfast most days so this is something portable I can prepare ahead of time and take to work for my coffee break. I feel somehow clearer, less foggy, since I started the raw diet. Thanks for your informative site.

Hi Sandi, It sounds like you're into a great groove. Way to go.

Re: your question re: temperature, technically the purists would say it all depends on the temperature of your water (it should be below 115), but I'd say hot water is not going to kill ya :) Go for it, sounds like an interesting mixture and that it works for you.

My attitude is that we want you to keep eating high raw for your whole life not just for a short period of time, so this sounds like it's going to be sustainable for you over the winter. So go for it!

Hi Laura, I love your site and you're really inspiring. You showed me the many possibilities that lie in living one's passion! I tried the Raw Breakfast Bowl yesterday and I wasn't too keen on the result because I added too much almond milk (and mine is powdered almond milk) and the apple was too big, I didn't add enough raisins ... but I am looking forward to making it again!

Last night I decided to try this raw oatmeal recipe, but I didn't use raw oatmeal groats, just oat flakes (I will get round to buying raw when the flakes are all eaten). I was DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEElighted!!!!! It tasted sooooooooooooooo goooooooooooooooooooood, unbelievably good. I'm also grateful for the comments left by other viewers about not blending too long, so I didn't and it was great. I find it incredible that I'm enjoying a bowl of cool oatmeal!

Hi Gna, great question! I have a very boring but very practical salad recipe that takes NO time to prep as long as u have access to a kitchen at your workplace - I think I've called it "raw salad for lunch" or something like that (browse salad category in the app) - basically, it's carrot, avocado, tomato.  The avocado acts like the dressing, and it's surprisingly good!

I have just seen these comments/questions. I am in Australia too. Oat Groats, including steel cut oats, I have found only in health food shops, including one at Victoria Market in Melbourne (which sells the freshest I think). Organic rolled unstabilised oats are sold at Safeway/Woolworths supermarkets in their cereal section, & are reasonably priced. I believe these are "raw". If Rachel & others want more details I am happy to help.

A blender isn't always an option (I spend part of the year living on a sailboat where space and battery power are precious). Plus a blender is just one more thing to clean.

So I use this very simple method in the evening: mix oats with some crushed walnuts, mixed berries, raisins, chopped apple, etc. into a big coffee mug, add soy milk till it reaches the level of the dry ingredients, and go to bed.

In the morning, get a spoon and eat.

Washing up involves a mug and a spoon.

could this recipe work with buckwheat groats?

Hi Natalie, yes, this recipe would work with buckwheat groats, but you should definitely soak them first. (you can use the same quantities)

I use rolled oats and although I prefer apples in it, I'll use any other non citrus fruit on hand. Also I haven't been soaking any of the ingredients, and the oatmeal is wonderful.

Do the oat groats contain wheat ?

Labb, I am not certain whether the oat groats contain wheat/gluten. To be on the safe side, use buckwheat groats instead - "buckwheat groats" are definitely gluten free

Instead of having to soak the oats, and to avoid the whole steel oat/oat groats raw debate, I used raw sprouted oats. Didn't need to soak them just put the sprouted oats in the blender with a about a cup of soaking water from dates (leftover from a raw bread recipe I made yesterday). Came out delish! Thanks for the idea! :)

How long is overnight? I have a pretty crazy schedule and I normally get an average of 4 hours of sleep. Is overnight 6-8 hours?

4 hours would probably be enough to soften it - I usually leave mine for 8 hours but since you can make WITHOUT soaking at all 4 hours will be fine

PS: You need more sleep! Little ones in the house?

Growing up my Swiss grandmother made us musli which I am trying to recreate, did you try soaking the oats in Almond milk?

Iris,
I make a "raw swiss bircher musli" meant to be eaten cold - love it during our warm summers. I make a big batch on the weekend and eat it all week.
3 cups oats, 2 mashed bananas, 2 GRATED apples, juice from 2 oranges (I then cut whats left up and add it), juice from 1 to 2 lemons, green and/or red grapes (1- 2 cups) sliced in half. I put the smashed bananas in first, then the oatmeal, squeeze the lemon juice on top of the oatmeal and let it sit while you grate the apples and cut the grapes,
Then add it all together - it will be thick... put in the refrigerator overnight. the juice from all the fruits break down the oatmeal. To eat - 1 cup will fill you up! and I add sliced almonds, or pecans, or walnut sprinkled on top. You can also serve with berries. The variety is endless .... Delicious! (For dessert eat it with some whipped coconut whipped cream and a tad of cinnamon :)

You have to understand, some folks may just be getting started, and in this day and age, folks may not have the money to literally throw away food. They have to work with what they have until they know what they are doing in the kitchen and they use the old stuff up and get new things. It's a learning curve they may use, especially if their kitchen-home economics skills are at beginner stage. Go gentle, eh?

Hi there, I made the raw oatmeal recipe this morning after soaking my steel cut oats and goji berries (don't like raisins). Then I blended everything this morning, added a banana (didn't have any apples, haha). Sprinkled with cinnamon and some fresh blueberries... delish! Just very glue-like so I think I probably should have added more water, no? My coworker loved it, too, so I think this might become our new breakfast :) Thanks so much for all the recipes!

If it is coming out gummy you are blending it for too long. the mixture should have a bit of texture. I would also like to point out that 1 1/4 cup of steel cut oats is enough for at least 2 people. if you eat it at one sitting you certainly will be full!

Mine too, it came out like glue, but I left out the apple. I'm trying again tomorrow with a few dates in the soak and then add the toppings.

The apple is definitely necessary, although it is always slightly glue like. :) But if you are not digging this recipe you can try http://www.therawtarian.com/rawtarians-raw-breakfast-bowl instead

I made something similar to this. Soak 1/2 cup steel cut oats and 5 pitted dates in water overnight. Then in the morning put it in the blender with a banana and some flax seed. Topped it with fresh strawberries and cinnamon. I am new to eating raw also. Only on day 5. Thanks for all the great ideas.

Hi!

How long do you let your Vitamix run for while blending your oatmeal? I've never made raw oatmeal and I'm just starting my raw journey (6 weeks in) but I have a Vitamix and am going to make this tomorrow for breakfast. Just want to know how long to blend it.

Until it's super silky smooth - in a Vitamix that's probably about 1 minute - I usually monitor by touching the outside of the carafe - once the mixture is starting to get warm then I know that it's ready - I don't let mixture get very hot, but you want it smooth

Well, it's not piping hot but it's not "cold" per se.

If you have a high speed blender and you eat it right away it will be warm from the friction :) Try it :)

Greetings right back at ya from Canada, Seb!

2 months in... do you have a high-speed blender yet? I waited until the 6-month mark to get mine. (I have a history of flaking out on things, and my husband asked me to wait until reaching the 6 month mark before shelling out the big bucks for a vitamix, lol). Now, about a year and a half in, I have proved him wrong. :)
