Recipe Directions

  • 1. OPTIONAL TO SOFTEN: The night before, throw the water, raisins and then 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 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 makes for a very filling breakfast.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

In the morning, my breakfast is almost always either fresh fruit, a green smoothie, or--my favourite--quick, blended 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.)

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 eating truly uncooked oats is not safe. Thus, I have modified this recipe to use quick rolled oats, which have been cooked but are way better for your digestive system. Truly raw (uncooked) oats are very tough on the digestive system and should not be eaten because of their high amount of phytic acid.

Linoya's Review

Raw oatmeal recipe

5 out of 5

Hi!
First of all, thank youfor your recipes, they're great (especially the banana cream pie, even non-raw-foodists LOVED it!)
Sencond, I see a lot of recipes with oats. I've been told, that oats are not good in a raw food diet.. But sometimes I really want to eat an oatmeal, and I don't have raw oats, only Quaker.. Do you think, as a raw-foodist who probably know more than Ido, that it's okay once in a while, or should I try to not eat it at all?

Hi Linoya!

Eating uncooked oats is not good for you. They are somewhat toxic when raw so do stay away from eating them uncooked.

If you are going to eat oats, please cook them. :)

That's for sure, but instant oats are healthy at all?

They are pre-cooked, I believe.

The taste was great but it is just too gummy of a texture for me. I might try not soaking it overnight and see if that is better.

Hi Jessica! Thanks for your review. To be honest, I am not crazy about this recipe anymore either. I think it needs some tweaking!!

You can use really raw oats!

Soak them 12-24 hours with double the amount of water, 1tbsp apple cider vinegar, and 1tbsp buckwheat flour. Buckwheat contains phytase which will pre-digest the phytic acid for ya! Drain and rinse well before adding to the recipe.

Thanks for your note - this sounds like an excellent solution!!! How did you figure this out?

I'm in school to become a certified holistic nutrition consultant, so I'm always looking for ways to optimize nutrition for vegans. I actually found the buckwheat flour idea on a marksdailyapple.com forum thread, and the reasoning is totally sound. I've done it a few times and made it into overnight oats, and I didn't have any issues even though I don't tolerate grains well.

Thanks very much for sharing your finds. This is a good one. I appreciate the nudge in this direction, because the oat issue has been perplexing me for a long time now.

Please share any other juicy tidbits that you discover.

And yay for the world that you're in school and are contributing to make the world a better place. The world needs that special something that only you have.

Can we use quick cooking oats even though we are not heating them? What would be the benefit or difference between using steel cut oats and rolled oats?

Hi Aiyana,

It is not healthy or safe to eat uncooked oats. They are high in phytic acid which is bad for digestion.

Even soaking overnight oats are not a good idea, in my opinion. (Unless you are using pre-cooked oats, like quick oats, which are not raw and those are fine to eat because they are already cooked.)

I am not an anal person and I don't really care about whether you eat organic or soak your nuts etc, but, truly, eating uncooked oats is bad for your health.

This recipe is fine. Just wasn't my thing I guess. Soaked the oats overnight so it was creamy. Flavor was good. I think I struggled with it being cold. Wonder if next time I might warm it up just a little and may like it even better. Also, I'm trying to lose weight so the serving size for me would have to be one serving.

I am a bit tortured about this recipe myself. It's really gummy.

I love this app. This one is the best so far. However I have a question a out this recipe. The serving size have 3 portions, the calories per serving are 210, so it will be a total of 630 calories. I don't think the ingredients are too high in calories. I think I am reading this wrong. Do I need to multiply the portions by the total of calories, or the calories are the total calories for the recipe, including all the ingredients, and the serving size is just a guide and doesn't affects the serving size?
Thank you and this app is awesome!

Hi Sally,

I'm happy that you're enjoying the app!

I agree that this one is a confusing one, since it sounds like there's not a lot there in the recipe, but the calories are quite high per serving.

A 1/4 cup of dry steel cut oats is 150 calories, according to the tub of steel cut oats that's sitting in my kitchen. Thus, this recipe in full (1 1/4 cup steel cut oats etc) is at least 750+ calories.

Does this help?

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.

Gonna try this for tomorrow's breakfast but I did notice EileenM that on the top of this recipe, it states this is three servings. If you want just one serving, you change modify it now. ;-)
