Raw Food: Flaked Oats

As promised, your first raw food recipe made with flaked oats. Now that it is November, I find myself wanting a little more than a green drink for breakfast on some days. The perfect solution? Flaked Oats! High in soluble and insoluble fiber, oats are know to reduce blood cholesterol. They can also help regulate blood sugar, aid in digestion and because they contain phytochemicals, they help reduce your cancer risk. Studies have also shown that they also help control blood pressure and are an excellent source of energy giving carbohydrates.



Now that I have found a great source for organic, flaked oats that I can actually use in a raw food recipe, I have put my occasional raw oatmeal back on the menu! This takes a little advanced preparation, and you will be using the dehydrator so plan accordingly. I normally make them right when I get up. They will be ready when you are done showering.

    I’ll have to research some raw oats. Been cooking steel cut for years or just rolled oats. I noticed the raw food family posted your recipe on Facebook. I hope they credited your work!

    Your oatmeal looks good. But what is the difference between oat flakes and rolled oats? Rolled oats are readily available. If I use those how will it affect your recipe?

      The recipe calls for raw oat flakes. If you want to eat raw food, the rolled oats are not raw. They are processed with steam.

    I’m actually reading the book “Eat and Run” by Scott Jurek, a good book on “Eating Raw, Vegan and Vegeterian” but also ultra running (all races longer than 26.2 miles). More and more I realize that this kind of food is what by body needs to recover and be 100% healthy.
    Good recipe here, I’ll try it for sure!
