These whole oat kernels are wholesome and nutritious.
Best if stored in an air tight container in the freezer or use right away.
The oat groat is the whole oat kernel before it is flaked (making it a "rolled oat"). Wholesome, nutritious and naturally gluten free.
Oats are a crop ideally suited to cool moist climates and Maine potato farmers have been growing oats for years to help keep balance in the soil. Oats are a beneficial addition to the farm ecosystem and a healthful addition to the human diet.

Maine Grains Oats are processed in a facility that also processes wheat products and are not certified gluten-free.
I ordered these groats when steel cut oats weren't available. These are the grain that gets cut to make steel cut. They are nutty, chewy and delicious. I cook them in my pressure cooker for 18 minutes and then let them sit for another 20 minutes or so. Add your favorite toppings and, if you are like me, you will never look back :)
