Oat & Groat Bars


I wish I had more time to cook all of the fabulous recipes I come across in the food blog world. If I’m not creating my own recipes, I’m either eating out or eating on the run. Recently though, a girlfriend sent me this granola bar recipe and I knew I had to make it immediately. Not only did it feature my newest obsession, buckwheat grouts, but I also knew it was something that Bryan would love for breakfast and snacks.


Have you tried groats yet? Thanks to Kath, I have been putting them on just about every dish. I keep a bowl of toasted groats on the counter to sprinkle on smoothies, oatmeal, and last night- brussels sprouts! I kid you not. The obsession is real.

I’ve also been on quite the granola bar kick lately, making chewy bars, peanut butter chocolate bars, and Samoa bars- each one becoming a favorite. I really do love when BL begs me to remake items.


Mine turned out a bit crumbly, which was fine after we enjoyed the first few bars. I chopped the rest up to enjoy as granola. Hunks of groat bars on top of yogurt and blood orange slices? Divine.

    This looks to me like it would make some awesome chunky granola cereal! I haven’t worked very much with oat groats, simply because I have trouble figuring out what to do with them. Well, consider that problem solved! I’ll have to buy some more to play around with.

      I felt the same way. I could never really figure out what I wanted to do with them… these bars changed everything. The granola was fantastic! Paired perfectly with coconut yogurt.
