Day One Oat Groats

I think most people like oatmeal. It is a great economical breakfast if you make it yourself at home. I have shared how I make our own instant oatmeal packets at home in the past.

But sometimes we want something a little different. Which is when I will make oat groats. I purchase the oat groats in the bulk food section at Winco Foods.

I think the last time I purchased the price was $.58/lb. So it makes for a very inexpensive breakfast.

Let me share the recipe I use at our home,
