Oat Groats Porridge

Oat Groats Porridge

I particularly like oat groats porridge since groats are the least processed of all the oat grains. My motto is to try to eat minimally processed food and to choose the option closest to the way it is found in nature. Oat groats are even less processed than steel-cut, stabilised, rolled and instant oats. They truly are a wholefood. This oat groats porridge can be just as creamy and delicious as other oat grains, however, it is far more healthy.
However, oats contain a particularly large amount of phytic acids, which inhibit the absorption of essential minerals, particularly iron, zinc and calcium. That is why phytic acid is often referred to as an anti-nutrient.
Therefore, please remember to soak the oat groats as described in the article on soaking nuts, grains and legumes, which you can find here
