Vegan Cinnamon Raisin Oat Groats

April 10, 2010 by Keri

I’m rather new to groats, but I really enjoy the flavor, chewiness and texture of them.  I also love the diversity of how they can be used for savory dishes as well as sweet, making them work for any meal.  After soaking the groats all day, I decided to prepare them for this morning’s vegan breakfast last night.  Since they can take some time to cook preparing them in advance is easiest, as I don’t consider myself a morning person.  They are also very good raw with just an overnight’s soak, but quite a bit chewier. Either way, oat groats are really tasty and extremely filling!  The recipe below is plenty for two people, to divide and eat over two mornings, or to half for a single meal.

Vegan Breakfast Recipes

Cinnamon Raisin Oat Groats

  • 1 1/2 cup oat groats, soaked “overnight”
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup (or agave nectar)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

In a medium saucepan, combine oat groats and water over medium-low heat.  Cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until water is completely absorbed.  Stir in raisins, maple syrup, and cinnamon.  Enjoy!
