    Oat groats 1st Sep 04 at 12:39 AM
    I know that Cathy will know more recipes than I do about this!

    I am sooo happy - today I received my wholefoods delivery and at long last I got my 5kg bag of oat groats (sorted for breakfast for the winter now!) - can't wait for the cold weather now to have them cooked on the stove overnight hehehheheh!

    But I would also like to use the groats for different grain recipes - and I would be grateful for ideas.

    Thank you

    have you tried using the oat groats to make raw flapjacks in dehydrator?

    soak the groats in water, then strain and process with maple syrup, apple, raisins, etc.

    spread on teflext sheet on dehydrator, or dry in oven on extremely low setting.

    I haven't got a dehydrator - how do I process the oats? I also don't have a food processor (only a blender).

    Thanks

    might be worth trying to blend them after they've been soaked.
    or do you have one of those 'kitchen drills' ( a hand blender)?

    I would've thought they'd be fine with either tool as long as they've been soaked overnight b4.

    don't forget to strain them first so they aren't too soggy as will take forever to dry.

    This is a very ancient thread i know but I am desperately searching to buy a bulk quantity of organic oat groats...I've searched online but the main supplier (Infinity Foods) keeps being out of stock.
    Can anyone help please?

    Sorry, I've never bought them so I had nothing to compare them with.

    On the subject of recipes for oats, I made some lovely oatcakes (biscuits yesterday) and was amazed how simple they were to make.

    200g Oatmeal
    75ml hot water
    1 tbsp melted butter
    1/4 tsp bicarb soda
    Salt

    Mix all ingredients together. Roll out and cut with a pastry cutter (or cup/mug jam tart size). Cook for 15 mins in a preheated oven @ 200c. They come out really crisp. Great with hummus/cheese/etc.

    I'm going to try the next batch without bicarb and replacing the butter with olive oil.
