Day One Oat Groats
I think most people like oatmeal. It is a great economical breakfast if you make it yourself at home. I have shared how I make our own instant oatmeal packets at home in the past. But sometimes we want something a little different. Which is when I will make oat groats. I purchase the oat groats in the bulk food section at Winco Foods. I think the last time I purchased the price was $.58/lb. So it makes for a very inexpensive breakfast.
Let me share the recipe I use at our home,
1 cup oat groats
3 cups water
Milk and extra add ins of your choice
I place the oats in a pan and add the water. Then I will boil them for about 3-5 minutes the night before, then cover and let soak overnight. In the morning I will heat the oats to a simmer and cook with the lid slightly ajar for about 30-40 minutes. Once cooked we will add a little brown sugar or maple syrup. Sometimes even some dried fruit. Then add milk or in our case soy milk to taste and enjoy. This recipe we have found makes about 6 servings for our family.
