Oats to the Nth
(Oat Groats and Wheat Groats With Mangos and Walnuts)

This is the mother of oat breakfasts. Y’all know oatmeal. That pan of glop that they say is good for ya? Well, steel cut oats are so much heartier and tastier than oatmeal. Once you had steel cut, it’s hard to go back to just regular ol oatmeal. There’s a BIG difference. When I’m talkin breakfast, I want somethin that will stick for a while. Somethin that will get cha through to lunchtime. Steel cut oats are so much better for the the long haul. They do pretty good. That bein said, this recipe is to steel cut, as steel cut is to that oatmeal mush that some call breakfast. Hearty, har, har, har! I’m talkin to ya bout whole grain groats. That’s uncut oats. Yeah, kinda like horse feed. Ask yer horse if they’re any good. You put some uncut wheat groats in there too and it ups the ante again. Check it out.

2 cups whole oat groats
1 cup whole wheat groats (that’s NOT whole wheat flour. It’s uncut wheat)
6 cups water
1/2 cup dried mango chopped
1/2 cup walnuts
Put the oats and wheat in water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a slow boil for about 45 minutes (if you want to save time in the morning, you can start them the night before, boil for a few minutes and then turn off the burner and let them soak until morning, and cook for about 10-15 minutes).  Five minutes before the groats are done add the mango. When it’s done, mix a handful of walnuts into your steaming bowl of groats.  Above recipe is for two large bowls of oatmeal.  You might have some extra to put in your pancakes the next day which is great too.
