Oat groats are one of our favourite breakfasts. They are a powerhouse of nutrients, packed with fibre, protein, vitamins and are very filling. They are nuttier and chewier than steel cut oats. They take a longer time to cook. We usually cook them in the Instant Pot. Alternatively, you can cook them in a rice cooker or pressure cooker or the stovetop (use four cups of water for one cup of oat groats on a stovetop).
Once the oat groats are cooked, add fruits and the rest of the ingredients to make a breakfast bowl.
Using an Instant Pot:
To make the bowl, add cooked oat groats and the rest of the ingredients. You can add raisins and dried figs to sweeten the bowl.
Our son makes his own bowl. It is similar except he adds brown sugar to enjoy his bowl.
