Each serving of oat groats — a 1/4 cup raw, or approximately 1 cup cooked — contains 152 calories and provides 8 percent of the daily calorie intake in a 2,000-calorie diet. The groats provide 6 grams of protein per serving, which helps maintain healthy tissue and a strong immune system. A serving of groats also contains 26 grams of carbohydrates, including 4.1 grams of dietary fiber. These carbs fuel your active lifestyle and provide energy needed for brain function, while their fiber content helps lower your chance of developing cardiovascular disease. The fiber in one serving of oat groats contributes 11 percent toward the daily recommended fiber intake for men and 16 percent for women. Oat groats take much longer to cook than rolled or steel-cut oats — up to an hour — so they’re best suited to leisurely breakfasts rather than a quick meal before you jump into your daily grind. Try them topped with fresh berries, sliced banana and pecans. Alternatively, use oat groats in grain salads. Combine the groats with dried cranberries, chopped dried figs and an orange-and-mint dressing, or mix them with toasted walnuts, chopped kale, slices of roasted carrots and parsnips and a maple-and-mustard vinaigrette. You can also chop the groats in your food processor or blender for homemade steel-cut oats.
