Groats are oats that have had their hard outer husks removed. They are the least processed. Steel cut oats are the next step - they would be chopped up, or rolling them with big rollers would make them rolled oats

I soak my groats overnight and just heat them in the a.m. In the summer, I don't heat them, just eat them at room temp. with fruit.

They take a lot longer to cook (about an hour of simmering, and no matter how long you cook them, they're still just a bit chewy). ;o)

Oat groats are like steel cut oats 1.0 - oat groats are oats in their whole form whereas steel cut oats have been cut into smaller pieces. This shortens the cooking time without changing the nutritive value.
