Oats, known scientifically as Avena Sativa, is a grain sent from the Goddesses. They’re a hardy, sustaining cereal able to withstand poor soil conditions in which other crops are unable to thrive.
Studies have suggested powerful sexual results in both sexes. Its extract has been used to treat erectile dysfunction and it is also said to be an aphrodisiac (hence the term “sowing your wild oats”)
They also have the highest content of Iron, Zinc, and Manganese of any grain. Interestingly, they contain compounds which are both sedative and soothing to the brain and restorative to the nervous system.
Although oats are hulled, this process does not strip away their bran and germ allowing them to retain a concentrated source of their fiber and nutrients.
- 1 cup organic Steel Cut Oats
- 1 tbs ground hulled hemp seeds
- 3 cups water
- 1 tbs organic Agave Nectar
- 1 apple or whatever fruit you have around, peaches or bananas work well too
- 1tbs butter or coconut oil to make it vegan
- Sprinkle cinnamon (optional)
- Top with 100% maple syrup
- A few splashes hemp, soy, or other favorite milk for thinning (if desired)
- Dried fruit
- Bring water to boil in saucepan and add oats.
- Reduce heat, simmer and stir occasionally until all the water is absorbed. Could take a half an hour depending on how you like them done.
- Meanwhile, chop up the apple (or whatever fruit you have.) Separate butter or oil in half. Use half to sauté the apple in a cast iron pan along with the cinnamon and Agave Nectar to caramelize.
- Mix all together in the saucepan when everything is tender. Stir in the other half of butter or oil and the ground up hemp seeds.
- Drizzle with Maple Syrup. Stir in Hemp milk to thin out to help cool down.
