Raw oats are awesome! They’re healthy, gluten free and don’t need to be cooked. Once you get over the initial “strangeness” of eating raw oats, you’ll love this high fiber and healthy breakfast. Muesli, a European cereal based on raw oats is loved in Europe – give it a try where ever you live! Don’t buy expensive store bought muesli, it’s easy to do it yourself and healthier.
Recipe: Strawberry Muesli
1 cup raw oats
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup walnuts
2 Tbsp ground flax (optional)
1 teaspoon brown sugar
Cover the oats with your choice of milk. Nut milk, rice milk, goat milk or regular cow’s milk will do the trick. Let them soak while you slice the strawberries thin. Add the strawberries and walnuts. Sprinkle with ground flax (optional fiber booster). If you like things a bit sweet, dust the mixture with some brown sugar.
TIPS on Raw Oats: Getting used to raw oats can take some time even for the most adventurous eaters. The texture can be a bit rough. The longer you soak your oats, the softer they will be.
