1/2 Cup raw whole oats *, soaked overnight in pure water to cover.
1/4 Cup almonds, soaked overnight in pure water to cover.
2 figs or 2 pitted dates, soaked in 1/2 cup pure water overnight.
1/2 banana dash of cinnamon
In the morning, drain and discard water from oats and almonds. Rinse
almonds. Put oats, almonds, fruit and fruit soak water in blender and blend until fairly
smooth. Add banana and cinnamon and blend quickly. Serves 1. Eat immediately.
note: Finding raw oats is difficult. My favorite source tells me
that because whole raw oats turn rancid quite quickly, the companies that supply it are
"lightly steaming" the oats after harvest. This is not a good thing - as steam
reaches 212 degrees and will destroy all the enzymes. Ask your source, but dont be
surprised if they dont really know that this is what is happening to the oats. If
you find a truly raw source - or are a truly raw source of Organic whole oats-please
contact this author. This is a delicious and hearty recipe, but unless you are sure the
oats are truly raw - dont indulge in it too often. Try this same recipe with other
whole raw grains such as Barley, Kamut or Spelt.
