Raw Oats, Hmmm.

Kath of Kath Eats Real Food has inspired me to try Raw Oatmeal for breakfast. I have soaked my oats overnight in the refrigerator and now I am going to dig in.

Here are the oats just out of the fridge.
I’ll be the first to admit not very appetizing.

After a quick stir things were looking better.

The flavor is great! They are rich and creamy with a wonderful cinnamon-banana flavor. The mixture is very thick and rich. I have a feeling that this meal will stay with me for a long time. It is 7:20 now lets see how long I can go before my snack. I‘ll keep you updated.

Update: I was satisfied till lunch!!! I am usually hungry at 9am on the dot and then again at 11:30am. I was fine all morning and at noon I was ready for lunch but not ravenous. I am amazed.

I read a suggestion to nuke the oats for 30 seconds in the morning to take the chill out. I liked it cold though. Don’t be scared just give it a try.

I think next time I will do ¼ cup of each and stick with ½ a banana to lower the points so I can afford some toppings. I’ll try again tonight and see what happens tomorrow.
