*Stir and soak overnight (room temp)
2 cups old fashioned organic (gf) oats OR steel cut oats
2 cups water
1 Tbsp. raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
½ tsp. salt

 

In Large Bowl whisk together:
1 Large egg

cooked oats).

clumps form

1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
Dash sea salt
Sprinkle over oats and Bake for 35 minutes at 350

Why Soak Oats?
*If you are wondering why I soak my oats (and other grains) Please read my
soaked oats blog on my website OR refer to Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon.
Oatmeal and other grains are not easily broken down in the body. It is much easier
on our systems if you soak oats and other grains, for a minimum of 12 hours before
cooking. Adding the ACV is key to helping break down the phytic acid found in
grains. This not only allows your body to more easily digest the grains, but most
importantly, provides your body necessary nutrients that are present only in
soaked grains. Such as, B vitamins, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and
potassium. Remember to always pair your grains with a good quality fat such as
grass-fed ghee, cream or butter. This is really the perfect combination for
maximum mineral absorption.
For more information on this topic and other great recipes, check out Sally
Fallon’s book Nourishing Traditions. An oldie but a goodie!
Remove from oven and let settle for 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with a
healthy dollop of ghee, fresh nut milk, cream or even ice cream. Yum!
