Delicious Raw Oatmeal

I found this recipe in the LiveFresh recipe binder that came with my Vitamix. It’s by Cherie Soria:

  • 1 cup oat groats
  • 1/2 apple, cored, chopped
  • 2 T purified water
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon
  • 3 T raisins
  • pinch of salt

Soak the oat groats for 8 hours in 3 cups of water. Drain them, rinse, then cover again with fresh water and soak another 8 hours. Drain & rinse again. Put the ingredients in a blender in the order listed above, pulsing on and off at medium speed and using a tamper to push ingredients into blades, until desired texture is reached. The recipe recommends you serve with warmed almond milk and apricots or bananas. I thought it was great as-is. 

I made a variation of this recipe that is slightly sweeter and more “gooey” and totally yummy (I felt like I was eating a dessert):

  • 1 cup oat groats
  • 1/2 apple, cored, chopped
  • 2 apricots soaked 1 hr
  • 2 dates soaked 1 hr
  • 2 T soak water from either dates or apricots
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup soaked almonds
  • pinch of salt

Same instructions as above.
