    I am so making this – going to whole foods at lunch to get the stuff I don’t have in the hosue

    Never been a big fan of oatmeal but I’ll definitely try your recipe before it’s ancient history. And thanks for the bonus!

    Yum! I love the idea of using oats in raw foods. It’s something you don’t see all that often, but should be done way … because oats are awesome.

    Yay! I am so glad this is the winner! I am making it when I get home!

    I was late reading the previous post, but voted anyway. I picked savory for a change. However, I do love my sweets, too. Looks delish!

    Congrats on making the top 10 list. You deserve it.

    Oh, and I’m enjoying reading about your wedding planning (that’s a lot of “ing”s). Glad to hear you found a venue in the end.

    Yay, thanks for the preview! So glad you guys were able to find a new venue in time. That was crazy what happened, I cannot believe no one called you.

    Comforting breakfast for sure. Just wondering, do you mean only soak the raw buckwheat for 10 minutes? That doesn’t seem like enough time to me, I have usually read several hours. Thanks for all the options!

    Oh goodness! Yum!!

    Oooh, loving the sound of the nuts and extra apple version, at the bottom there! Like a raw apple crumble, almost. Can’t wait to see more (here and/or in the book 🙂 )

    Just made this for me and my husband, who is trying to switch to vegan eating. He LOVED it!!!!! Score! I will be making this often for breakfast and as a dessert. Thank you!

    So glad to hear you found a beautiful place…love the skylight! That’s a lucky date, and it’s National Date Nut Bread Day to boot so all good vibes for you! (There are actually 2 National Date Nut Bread Days, but I celebrate both cuz I can’t resist it!)
    THanks for sharing the recipe and variations from your book…I agree, it’s a must-have! I’ve got pears and blueberries on hand instead of apples, so I’m going to try making it with those tonight…cheers!

    First, congratulations on your book landing VegNews Magazine’s 2012 top ten must-buy vegan books! I’m sure a lot of people are excited to get their hands on that book. By the way, when you say “fresh-pressed apple juice” does it mean passing the apples through a kitchen juicer/extractor? or something else?

    Well, I am pleasantly surprised. 🙂 I already know some foods taste better in raw form, but I admit I was leery on oatmeal even being ‘kind of’ good uncooked. But the soaking of the oats gets the job done! I actually don’t know why I haven’t thought of this myself sooner (I guess because I was never previously interested in ‘raw’ foods apart from salads and raw greens drinks/smoothies/desserts…). I actually soak my oats anyway, especially when I’m making any type of oatmeal muffin (or like overnight oatmeal…leaving the oats in liquid overnight so they puff up and get huge and pillow-y). I did need to heat mine up on the stove for a bit, and I did so over very heat. I get bonus points for using fresh apple juice!! My tastes required less cinnamon and more salt, and I didn’t have maple on hand, so I subbed in agave with maple extract in place of vanilla (my almond milk was unsweetened vanilla).

    Here’s what I notice after eating:
    I am not having a blood sugar spike like I often do with cooked oatmeal. Some days I can tolerate it, but on certain days when my hormones are acting like they belong on another planet, I can’t tolerate ANY grains. They make me sleepy, pissy, and cause me to crave copious amounts of sugar. I actually couldn’t finish the entire bowl this time–normally my stomach is begging for more. And I could definitely feel the nutrients from the raw apple juice hitting my blood stream. Nice and relaxed more. I will honest in saying that I would prefer my apples to be cooked however. I love raw apples, but not so much in my cereals or granolas, including my oatmeal. I LOVE apple pie, so I am totally unable to trick my brain on this one, hehe. But I’m sure if I cooked up a small apple it wouldn’t kill me, or just left it out completely. Bananas would be great…and raw walnuts would pair wonderfully with the apples and cinnamon. I am happy. 🙂

      Sorry. Typo city in my comment!

    I just had this for breakfast, and it was really delicious!

    I just made this for breakfast using a mixture of nuts and leaving out the apple juice because I didn’t have any on hand. It is awesome, can’t wait to try it on my husband, his favorite breakfast is cream of wheat and this reminds me of it.

    Made this with raw milk and my kids loved it!
