Raw Apple Walnut Oatmeal

Every Sunday morning I host a breakfast party for my friends called “Cereal Sunday.” It’s genesis was based on the idea that we usually eat so well during the week, wouldn’t it be fun to kick back, let loose and return to our younger years with a large bowl of sugar cereal and cartoons.The first cereal Sunday went well, we had everything from Cinnamon Toast Crunch to Lucky Charms and an array of fruit toppings and watched The Sword and the Stone in our PJs. It sounds like the perfect morning, except one glitch… we all felt terrible within an hour and the cereal just didn’t taste like it used to… bland and artificial tasting. I guess you just need to remind yourself why real food is so much better. Therefore we abandoned the sugar cereal, and Cereal Sunday evolved into a more sophisticated affair with healthy dishes. That is when I created raw apple walnut oatmeal.

Raw Apple Walnut Oatmeal. A super simple breakfast that also doubles as a great snack for later. This is an easy way to get into raw breakfast food that is pretty much dummy proof… that is as long as you have a high speed blender like a Vitamix. Eating raw is a great way to eat because it provides the highest about of nutrients in one meal.

      I usually make oatmeal with oat groats (I freshly grind them and then cook them), but for this raw version, it doesn’t come out as well. Therefore, I just use organic Rolled Oats. These are heated in the process of rolling them, so I have been playing around with soaking the oat groats overnight in almond milk and then using them that way. Let me know if you have ideas!
