Raw Banana-Oat Breakfast

What you need: 

1 banana
1/4 cup oat grouts, soaked overnight and dried
Currents or raisins, as desired
Agave, to taste

What you do: 

For the oat grouts, I like to make a lot of them at one time. Soak them overnight and then rinse well. Place in your dehydrator (or low oven) to dry them out.
1. Peel and slice banana. Place in bowl with oat grouts and raisins. Add a splash of agave (I use about 1/2 tablespoon) for sweetness. Stir together and enjoy!
You can also add other spices or fruits. It is very versatile!

How long does it take the groats to dry if I'm using an oven?


Lovely simple concept you had. I added some goji berries.. It was very tasty; although, I don't know if it would be enough on its own to last me all morning. So I added a smoothie (with peanut butter!) on the side.


I made this with soaked oat groats but did not dehyrdrate them, 1 banana, 140g blueberries, 1/2 cup of homemade raw almond milk thats sweetened with a touch of honey.

was amazing! So simple, but complex enough to feel like a "real" nonraw breakfast!


Say I wanted to substitute the groats for rolledd oats. Bad idea?


I've been using dehydrated buckwheat groats in cereals and as crunchies in my raw foods.. I've been wondering if I could use oats the same way!! (or in a similar way, at least.)

To answer someone's earlier question.. to make crunchy buckwheaties, just soak the buckwheats (a cup, or several cups) in water over night. For the next 2-3 days, rinse at least 2x a day (I prefer keeping mine in strainers by the sink) and let them sprout. Then, dehydrate at 90 degrees for 3-5 hours, until crispy. I store them in an airtight container.

I'll try soaking & dehydrating the oats, too! Thank for the idea!

If you need info on sprouting, try this: (I'm partial, because it's my blog.. but I hope it helps!)


I soaked my oat grouts overnight and this morning added 1 peach, dash cinnamon, and a squirt of agave to the drained and undried grouts. My partner loved it but as others have said, it's very filling. I'm juice feasting right now, so didn't try it, but it looked amazing! Great raw breakfast idea.


i'm glad you liked it!


Made this for breakfast, followed the recipe to a "T". I added cinnamon and used less agave, the raisins were sweet enough. I will be eating this often, I feel much fuller. I had this with strawberry and pineapple smoothie. Very tasty and healthy was to start the day.


My dehydrator finally made it...........oh yeah(smile). I'm making this for breakfast in the morning. I'm doing raw for 2 weeks. I did it last month for 8 days, I didn't feel heavy like I do after eating cooked food. I'm looking for new recipes all the time. Thanks for the recipe Baypuppy.


I would really like to make this, but I don't have a dehydrator or a gas stove. Is there another way to dry the grouts?
