  • 1 cup steel cut oats or sub­sti­tute oat groats
  • 4 cups water for soak­ing
  • 4 med­jool dates or sub­sti­tute soaked figs or apri­cots
  • 2 cups water for blend­ing
  • 1 red apple try gala, fuji or hon­ey crisp, chopped small
  • 1/2 tea­spoon cin­na­mon
  • Pinch of nut­meg clove or all­spice
  • 1 table­spoon
  1. First you’ll need to soak the steel cut oats for at least a cou­ple of hours min­i­mum, but bet­ter to soak them overnight in 4 cups of water if you have the time. You can also soak the dates to make them more blender friend­ly (espe­cial­ly if you are sub­sti­tut­ing a dif­fer­ent vari­ety of date!).
  2. If you’re soak­ing the dates as well, you can use the date soak water as part, or all, of the 2 cups need­ed in the recipe to make it just a lit­tle bit sweet­er.
  3. Next place the rinsed oats, dates, and the two cups of water (or, use some of the date soak water) in a blender or food proces­sor and blend or process on high speed for about 25 sec­onds or until the mix­ture is smooth.
  4. Mix togeth­er the chopped apples, cin­na­mon and any oth­er spices you like, and agave nec­tar, if you’re using it. Por­tion out the oats into a bowl, top with the cin­na­mon apples and enjoy!
  5. It is also nice to top this raw oat­meal recipe with fresh raw veg­an nut milk or seed milk such as Raw Almond Milk, if you’d like. Enjoy!
