How to Cook and Sprout Organic Oat Groats
Enjoy cooked and sprouted Food To Live Organic Oats. If you choose to cook them right from the pack, rinse and soak the seeds for a few hours and then cook as any whole grain using three parts of water per 1 part of organic oat groats. It should take about an hour, and you can forego pre-soaking if you are short on time. Organic sprouted oats will be a bit more delicious and nutritious as well as easier on your stomach.
To sprout them soak the groats for 6 hours and set the sprouted somewhere cool and out of the direct sun. Be sure to rinse and drain every 8 hours, and your sprouts will be ready by day 2. Use them fast as they don’t keep well.

- Pre-cooked Organic Oats from Food To Live can be included in cookies. However, the best way to use them in baked goods is to grind your organic oat flour. You can even do this with sprouted kernels to increase food benefits.
Note that organic oats are naturally gluten-free, so they are safe for most people. As our kernels are whole for sprouting, you can’t cook this type of grain in the microwave. If you are pressed for time, it’s best to pre-cook seeds over the weekend and store them in the fridge in an airtight container. Freezing doesn’t damage organic oats when they are dry, and you can even sprout them afterward.
