Homemade Flaked Sprouted Oats

There aren’t a lot of grains that I use in raw food preparation, but raw, sprouted flaked oats can really provide interesting texture, taste and substance, without all the fat and calories in nuts. And oats are energy producing powerhouses full of health benefits.

Oats are a great source of heart healthy fiber and nutrients. Because of their high-fiber, they remove cholesterol from the digestive system that would eventually get into the blood stream. Oats have unique antioxidant properties that help fight against oxidation, one of the biggest health issues we face. Oats contain beta-glucan that not only fights cholesterol, it also enhances your imune system! Another benefit? How about the ability of oats to stabilize blood sugar? Sounds like a winning combination to me.

This is the FlicFloc. It works by forcing dried grain through two steel rollers.

Breakfast from raw oats (recipe below) is another way to enjoy these delicious little grains. The muesli recipe is one of my favorite ways to use oats. It is refreshing and gives your brain the healthy carbs it needs for optimum functioning. I have also included a recipe for my favorite nut milk, Cashew-Almond Milk.

Oats are gluten free but if you have a severe gluten intolerance, you need to make sure you get your oats from a certified gluten free facility. Some oats are processed in the same place as wheat, and cross contamination can occur.

Making sprouted oats takes a little time but the actual hands on time is minimal.
