    Can you just soak Oat groats overnight and eat it the next morning? Or do you have to cook it first?

      Hi,
      The best way to do that is just to bring them to a boil first, then cover them overnight. They will be soft, a bit crunchy and delicious in the morning. Check out our recipe for “Crazy Breakfast”. It’s our favorite. Thanks,
      Deb
