Soaked Oatmeal

 

Nutritious Soaked Oatmeal

 When we first began to change our diet and incorporate foods that were nourishing and rid our kitchen of foods that steal the nutrition straight from our bones, grains were high on the list of foods to avoid.

Lucky for us, I discovered Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions and we have been able to enjoy our grains, properly prepared, of course, and in moderation.  As I wrote about in another post, we love our soaked pancakes, but even easier to make than those is soaked oatmeal.

We don’t eat oatmeal often, but when we do, it’s a nutrient-dense treat.

Here is my recipe for nourishing, comforting soaked oatmeal.

What You’ll Need:

1 cup of steel cut oats
1 cup of warm filtered water
4 tbsp of whey, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, plain yogurt or buttermilk
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanillamaple syrupmolassessucanat

or other natural sweetener to taste
additional water or cream to create desired consistency

Optional:
fruit such as blueberries, strawberries, peaches or raisins
spices such as cinnamonnutmeg, pumpkin pie spice or ginger

STEPS:

1.  Stir together oats, warm water, whey, and salt.

2.  Cover the bowl and let the mixture sit for 12-24 hours.

3.  Pour mixture into a pot and cook for 20-30 minutes, adding more liquid as needed for desired consistency.

4. Stir in butter until melted.

5. Add in sweetener.

6.  Add in fruit and/or spices.

7.  Serve warm with breakfast proteins such as eggs or bacon.
