If you like fermented foods and you like oatmeal. You will love the the rich flavour of fermented oats. The oats are not mushy, they cook quickly (you basically just warm it up) and the sour, yeasty flavour and aroma will be instantly recognizable by frequent fermenters.

If you are new to fermenting foods, this would be a great place to start because of the simplicity of the process.

Why ferment your oats? It improves digestiblily and adds probiotics (beneficial bacteria) to your gut.

Ingredients

2 cups rolled oats
2 1/2 cups filtered water

Directions

Add the oats and water into a jar preferably with wide mouth.

Now to cover the lid with a breathable material and place the jar in a spot out of direct sunlight. (This coffee filter works great!)

Let the oatmeal sit for the next 2 - 3 days, stirring daily. (the oats will absorb all the water)

Note: If you go too long, you may see a yeasty film on top, experience a slimy texture or end up with a super cheesy aroma, so if you’re going to push it to the 3 day mark check often and continue to stir daily.

If your house is crazy hot, you may want to do a 24 - 48 hour ferment.

Take notice of the changing texture and aroma of the oats

When you’re ready to cook your oats, remove about 3/4 and cook them how you normally would.

Serve with whatever you want, dried fruit, berries, raisins, bananas, nuts, maple syrup. Or you could head down the savory route and try some herbs, soy sauce etc. the sour flavor of the oats will lend itself nicely with either. Experiment!

Add your fermented oats to 1 1/4 cups of water and 1 cup of fresh oats (or more or less if you wish, just keeping to the volume ratio of 1 part oats, 1 1/4 parts filtered water, to repeat the process of fermenting oats.

Amazing!! I've been making my own sourdoughs and (milk and water) kefir and just recently started fermenting veggies. Put up a post about just few hours ago actually :). And sure I've been soaking my breakfast oats for at least the night before. But fermenting them is new for me and I'm going to start it now!! Lol. Great timing for finding your post, I'm psyched about fermenting these days ;). Any other fermentation tips? Thanks!!

Awesome! Yeah I linked my recent posts on koffucha in this post. It's a fermented coffee beverage that follows the same processes of making kombucha.

I'll be making more fermenting posts in the future for sure.

Thanks for the comment. I'll definitely check out your post in little bit.

Cool! I actually really like my coffee as it is now haha. But will definitely check out the post and who knows, might give it a try! :)

Ah got it. Yeah it's a different taste from regular coffee for sure.

Well thank you! Glad you liked it.

Dude you and i should talk. Id love to pick your brain about different curing and fermentation practices

For sure. Pick away anytime.

Do you think that you could recreate "Atomic Frog Balls" Black Sheep Gourmet Foods makes them.

Ok I found the recipe. Sounds pretty simple. If I ever see organic Brussels sprouts for a decent price I'll try it out.

Do you think its possible to lacto ferment it instead of quick pickling it?

I can't see why not. Should work.

Meem delecious thanks for infomration

You're welcome! 😀

Excellent post!!!! Great work!! :)

Nice post I've only been leaving my overnight I will try for longer. Would it work if I didn't use a breathable cover?

Thank you. Yes, It should be fine without a breathable cover.

Right on, I will have to leave mine longer then. I did a post about my porridge a week on and I use a jar with its lid. Thanks
