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.

I just made this today. I added a little raw almond milk, date paste, apple and cinnamon and blended it together. I will add sliced banana when I get ready to eat it at work...seems very filling and a great way to eat oats. Thank you!

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?

Hi!

I am wondering if you can keep the oatmeal soaking overnight out of the fridge. I am new to rawtarianism :o)

I'm just getting into raw foods and would love to try this! How many servings does it make? And would leftovers stay well?

One very large or two medium servings. This does not keep well though.
