Recipe 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.

Made this and loved it! I think I'll skip the blending next time as it's very smooth.

Could there be a typo on the ingredients? I was preparing to soak my oats tonight to try this for tomorrow and I noticed the cooking directions on my steel-cut oats are 1 cup oats to 4 cups water for 4 servings. Should the ingredients be 1/4 cup oats instead of 1 1/4 cup for 1 serving? Thanks.

You could, but it's better fresh. I don't store mine.

i've never heard of steel cut oats. I have jumbo oats, is there a big difference. I'll start on them and then look for steel cut oats then.

Hi Juicy!

Yes, there is a big difference. :) You can easily find them in grocery stores in North America in the breakfast aisle, or in health food stores.

Hope this helps!

Sounds good! I enjoy the coarse texture of steel cut and enjoy mine after an overnight soak:)

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....
