Love the organic non-gluten oat groats. I grind them up to oat flour. The baked goods taste amazing!

Great product! They are the best tasting oat product around and the healthiest because they are the least processed. I’d been eating rolled and steel cut oats for 70 years. Never knew about groats until I found out a few years ago that I have Celiac Disease. My dietician recommended GF Harvest. The only downside is the long cooking time so I make 1 1/2 cups at a time every week and save the rolled oats for when I’m too busy to cook and also for recipes. I reheat the groats with milk, cooked pear, raisins, cinnamon etc and sometimes add nuts - Nice sweet grain accompaniment to a meal. And if you have CD you can easily rinse them (if you prefer) before cooking. I do.

Love the oat groats! I cook them in the slow cooker overnight.

I soak oat groats overnight in spring water (1/2 cup for a serving) then rinse and pulse in vita mix with a little bit of spring water to oatmeal like consistancy. I add one teaspoon of organic cinnamon, a heaping quarter teaspoon of organic cardamon and chia gel - let sit to blend flavors a bit and enjoy! (Chia gel can be made by putting 2 tablespoons of organic chia seeds in a half a cup of water - will form a gel in about 10 minutes.)

I gobble up these oats. The more the merrier. Fresh taste. Cooks perfect.

I have been a regular user of the Organic Gluten Free Oat Groats for several years. I would describe them as Sweet and Delicious, and always
fresh. It works well for me to freeze an extra bag until needed. I appreciate the care taken in growing this gluten free product***

Absolutely delicious! We are hooked, and will order by the case from now on.

Love that they are both Organic and Gluten Free. Finding Oat Groats that are both Organic and Gluten free was not easy until I discovered GF Harvest. Thank you GF Harvest for providing us with these great products. My search is now over.

We've tried many different brands of oats, and the GF Harvest organic oats are the best ever. We've tried their organic groats, organic steel-cut, organic rolled, traditional groats, and traditional steel-cut. The organic groats and steel-cut are fantastic - far, far, superior to the GF Harvest traditional, and also far better than any other brand, including Bob's Red Mill, Arrowhead, Cream Hill Estates, and McCann's. (McCann's, by the way, is not gluten-free - we've tested them using the EZ Gluten test kit, and celiacs should not go near them). The GF Harvest organic rolled oats, on the other hand, are nowhere near as good as the organic groats or the steel-cut.
Our only complaints with the organic groats and steel-cut:
1) they're not always available, and
2) the shipping is so high.

I soak the organic oat groats in spring water overnight, rinse and pulse blend in vita mix with a small amount of spring water. I then add a cup of coconut milk and cinnamon for a great tasting breakfast. This supports a healthy digestive system. I find these oat groats to be tasty and sweet.

Oat groats are so delicious! However it does take a while to cook...that's the nature of groats. So, I put 'em in slow cooker overnight (and cook enough to last several mornings).

I could not find organic gluten free oat groats at my local stores.I am very glad that I found this product online from GF Harvest. Product is great! I cook oat groats overnight in slow cooker and have a delicious breakfast.

Love these so much I am going to purchase the 25 lb bag next time!

I purchased a 25 lb bag of organic oat groats a couple of months ago,and I love them.I'm thinking to buy a oat flaker,so I can make my own rolled oats.They taste delicious.

When we flake these in an oat flaker, or crack them in a grain grinder, these make possibly the best oats we've ever had - organic or not, gluten-free or not. Unfortunately, the GF organic "Old-fashioned Rolled Oats" from GF Harvest do not measure up. They're way too thin - more like quick oats than old-fashioned - and they don't taste nearly as good.
Our wish list:
1) Sell the GF organic groats on Amazon.
2) Start manufacturing organic, GF steel-cut oats, as well.
3) Make your "old-fashioned" rolled oats really thick. Maybe they'll taste a lot better!

I love their oat groats, so much so that we bought a flaker to make oatmeal and a grain mill so we can freshly grind our flour.
You put your nose in the bag and breath, mmmm pure fresh goodness...
Not to mention Customer service is great.

I have missed having oatmeal because of the contamination issue - No more.

I've been a major fan of the regular (non-organic) groats for a while, then decided to try the organic last time I ordered. I don't know if there's updated processing or what, but these not only taste even better than the (terrific!) non-org groats, but I don't recall encountering any of the somewhat annoying hulls this time around --which i considered the only drawback of groats. These are incredible! That wonderful tender, toothsome crunch, clean oat flavor, & best of all, no hint whatsoever of gluten contamination...& my stupid system reacts violently to apparently molecular amounts. Only downside is how much willpower it takes to not snarf them down at every meal. They're great as breakfast with honey & dried fruit, side dish with butter (or non-dairy sub for dairy-intolerant folk like me) & herbs, dessert with maple syrup, brown sugar & raisins (like rice pudding, only better), anytime just straight up. If you have a rice cooker use brown rice setting; very handy, especially if it has a timer. I realize this sounds like a paid advert (it's not), but YOWZA these are absolutely fantastic!
