I have had several kinds of raw oatmeal, but this one is my favorite. My children love this recipe as well. What a great way to start our morning than with a nutrient packed food. Feel free to add more or less cinnamon based on your taste.

Perfect! I am expiermenting with raw foods and this is a perfect breakfast meal. The apple juice adds just the right amount of sweetness for me. I couldn't find goji berries so I substituted dried cherries and it's excellent. Thank you for sharing, I'll be adding this to my recipe book to use again and again.

The first reviewer is probably one of those people that leaves one-star ratings on vegan recipes listing "milk", too. Duh. Just like vegans know that "milk" means "nut milk", raw foodies know that "oats" are "raw oats". Don't blow a perfectly good recipe's rating on a technicality. And this IS a perfectly good recipe. I accidentally used twice as many almonds and didn't find it too nutty, and since I can't eat gojis, I used raisins instead. I had really wanted to add the yogurt or at least some honey but after I made the recipe I found that it really didn't need any more sweetness. Thanks for this great, easy, and nutritious little breakfast!

I'm not knocking off a star because this is truly not raw or oat groats would be called for. This was delicious, fresh and healthy tasting. I did only soak a short time however. I used pasteurized apple juice but would have much preferred unpasteurized. I used whole raw almonds and switched the goji berries which I assumed meant dried goji berries for California raisins and sweetened cranberries. I love cinnamon so I added to taste. I would make this again!!
