This is definitely different than cooked oatmeal but it has it's own charm. Sprouted oats have the advantage of being very digestible. It is a great idea to consume more raw foods, especially sprouts, the cute little power houses that they are.
Chia seeds are all the rage now. You could add a couple teaspoons of chia, and if it sat a while, it would thicken your cereal.
Be brave. try this living cereal.
