How to Soak your Oats?

How to Soak GF Oats

Are you wondering how to soak GF Oats?

Soaking your GF Oats is easy, how you do it depends on what you are wanting to achieve and how poor your digestion is. 

  1. Soaking the oats with a pinch of hydrates and softens the rolled oat grain, meaning your digestive system has an easier time with assimilation.

  2. You can add an acid to the oats while soaking, such as kerfir or yoghurt. This boosts your oats with probiotics, meaning that when you cook your oats, they’ll be full of postbiotics and paraprobiotics which are incredibly health-giving.

    Both these options can neutralise the mineral-stealing phytic acid, meaning that when you consume the oats, you’re maximising your ability to absorb minerals. 
    Try soaking in water first, if your still a little bloated add the probiotics.

Just grab a pot you can use on the stove in the morning for your warm oats. Or, if you are having them cold, use a breakfast bowl or container with a lid you can grab in the morning and take with you.

Step 1 

  • Measure the desired amount of oats into a glass bowl, using approximately 1/2 cup to 1 cup of uncooked old fashioned uncontaminated oats per serving. Pour the liquid you prefer into the bowl with the oats, I prefer water but you can use your preferred dairy, dairy alternative or add your probiotics. Use about two times as much liquid as oats; for example, if you‚ measured 1 cup of oats into the bowl, then you need 2 cups of liquid for soaking. Possible options include plain water, dairy milk, oat milk, almond or coconut milk are my preferences.

Step 2 

  • Mix the contents of the bowl with a spoon to thoroughly blend the oats and the liquid. Add a pinch of sale. Cover the bowl loosely with a paper towel or a lid. Place the bowl carefully in the refrigerator and leave it to soak for 12 to 24 hours or overnight.

Step 3 

  • Remove the oat-filled bowl from the refrigerator and discard the paper towel. Stir the mixture in the bowl to blend it completely. Spoon the soaked oats into a cooking pot for heating on the stove or into a bowl if you'd rather eat them uncooked. Add to them any of your favourite toppings which can include fruit, yoghurt, seeds, nuts etc.
