Rinse 1 cup of oat groats*
Soak oat groats in 1 cup of water for 2+ hours (I just soak them overnight because then I don't have to think about it...).
Puree oats and water in a blender or food processor until macerated.
Add 3 more cups of water and allow to soak for another 1-2 hours.
Puree the oats and water.
Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth.
Save the solids to be used as a thickening agent or cook it oatmeal style!
Oatmilk can be used just as you would dairy milk or soymilk.
*If you are from the Ann Arbor area, you can buy oat groats from the bulk section of the People's Food Co-op. Don't forget to bring your own bag!
And great for chia seed pudding...
Yes that's a casserole dish and yes I was eating it in my bed while studying.
