Sprouted Oats Breakfast Parfait

In conjunction with Organic September, Planet Organic have asked various British bloggers – including me – to create an organic recipe using one of their newest products, Sprouted Oats. Now, you might be thinking “What on Earth are SPROUTED OATS?” and so I’m here to demystify this seemingly bizarre ingredient for you!

Nuts, grains, beans and seeds are some of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet; however, in the modern-day, we are constantly discovering that foods like these can cause upset stomachs for others. These types of foods are difficult to digest In their dormant form, and other ‘trigger’ foods can extend to glutenous products, processed foods, certain oils… The list is, unfortunately, endless! Therefore, to assist those with Coeliac Disease or other sensitivities, Planet Organic sprout their oats, turning sleepy seeds into activated super foods, bursting with vitality and easily digested nutrients.

Having had the chance to experiment around with Planet Organic’s new product, I’d like to share with you my favourite recipe using their 100% Sprouted Rolled Naked Oats! Other ideas using this ingredient are: simply use in place of regular oats for oatmeal/ smoothies; and in raw bread, crackers and cakes; as well as add to cereal for a different texture. It’s totally versatile so happy experimenting 🙂

Ingredients for the oatmeal:

Method:

  1. Cook your oatmeal by boiling the Raw Sprouted Naked Oats in 2 cups of water until the water is fully soaked in.
  2. Once the oats are boiled, pour 1/3 of the oatmeal into a blender (or use a handheld blender), and blend with the dates, banana and cinnamon. Pour into the bottom of a jar. (I added a layer of granola at the very bottom of my jar stage purely for presentation purposes).
  3. Next, blend another 1/3 of the oatmeal with the berries and pitaya. You can blend until smooth, but I like to blend just a little bit so that some of the fruit pieces remain chunky. Layer on top of the date-banana layer.
  4. Pour the rest of the oats into a bowl and mix it with 1tbsp Creative Nature cacao powder until your oats are chocolatey. Add more cacao if you want them even creamier. Layer on top of the pink oats.
  5. Top the chocolate oats with any toppings such as fresh fruit, Creative Nature cocoa nibs etc.
  6. Decorate with desired toppings & ENJOY!
