Oats are grains in the grass family.

growing oats at home


Oats are easy to sprout at home. Cats and dogs will love you for it. All you need is viable oats seeds. I bought a 50 lb. bag of whole oats horse feed which lasted me several years.

A lot of these seeds produced leaves that were very poor in chlorophyll (Pic1) which means that the seed will germinate, but the plant will die as soon as the food reserve of the seed was exhausted.


This is what you need:

  • viable oats seeds (horse feed)

Oats are nowadays available parboiled and rolled flat, so they can be fully cooked in just a few minutes. I prefer to cook them with milk instead of water. 


This is what you need for each serving:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1-2 cups milk
  • sweetener of your choice
