Healthy recipe to make traditional oat groats for breakfast for digestive ease.


  • 1 cup organic oat groats
  • 3 cups water


  • Soak your oats overnight or for 8 hours.
  • Place 1 cup of oats in a large bowl. Cover with water. Place on the counter to soak overnight.
  • When ready to cook, drain oats through a sieve and discard water.
  • Place oats in a medium pot. Add 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then down to a simmer. Let cook for 25 minutes or till oats are plump and water had almost evaporated. Turn off stove, cover pot with a lid, and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Enjoy with toppings such as ground flax seed, nut butters, fresh or frozen fruit. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for meal prep up to 7 days.
