If like me (and my kids) you are Dairy Intolerant you have probably looked at the alternatives. I make Raw Almond milk too, I also make Dairy, water and other milk Kefirs and Kombucha. These have made a massive difference to my digestive health. I also cook and bake with Gluten free flour mixes and am inspired to make my own. I make almond flour, so now I fancy mixing it with oat flour (I am sick of using potato and tapioca).
You have to soak the groats first overnight or at least 8 hours. I use Raw groats to get the most nutrition and I soak them in filtered water.
When the Groats are ready I strain them, discarding the water, and then put them in a blender with the water
I use the same ratio that I use for my Raw Almond Milk
1 cup Oat Groats: 3 cups of filtered water
1 cup of Soaked Oat Groats
3 Cups Filtered Water
a pinch of salt
(I have been using Pink Himalayan rock salt but also like sea salt)
2 drops vanilla essence
(I use a couple of drops of the Medicine Flowers one but you could add a capful of regular essence)
1-2 Medjool Dates (Optional)
I blend then pulse and blend to make sure I get as much out of the oat groats as possible. I then strain through a nut/soup bag to get a smoother consistency. I then dry the ground oats in the dehydrator or the lowest setting in the oven (or just fan if you can).
