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.

All of these recipes look so very good. There is not a recipe of yours that I have tried and did not love. I am so excited to try them all. Thank you so very, very much for your generosity.

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....

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.

Jeni, yours is a good way too, but keep in mind the steel cut oats are much more nutritious.
