What the groat? These beauties are whole oats in their simplest form. Un-rolled and un-cut, groats are perfect for rolling at home or in the cafe. With a nutty flavour and slightly chewy texture, they are wonderful to use in savoury dishes. Use as a substitute for rice in risottos and salads. Serve with your favourite curry or add them to your soups and casseroles for a heartier meal, think of groats as your new pantry staple.

  1. Margaret

    Our son recommended Brushwood groats. We absolutely love the flavour and texture. We tried a different brand but they were not as good as Brushwood groats. Will definitely be order more. We have recommended them to our friends too.

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      Oh Margaret – that is music to my ears!! Thank you so much. So glad you are loving our groats.

  2. Ray Farr

    Absolutely love the oat groats, cooked in the pressure cooker every day for breakfast and sometimes even for a late night snack

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      Thanks Ray!! I don’t have a pressure cooker but I’m sure it would do a beautiful job of the groats!! Thanks so much for taking the time to pop online and do a review. K

    Thankyou for your supply of unmilled oat groats. Oats are recommended in several of my books of herbal medicine incl Simon Mills, as a ‘restorative’ for nervous debility and fatigue, which trouble me a lot now, in my mid sixties. They are both medicinal and nutritional.

    Groats are too tough for me, cooked like rice. I bought a quality home steel roller from ‘Dad’s Oats’ that easily squashes the groats into ‘rolled oats’. I cook them fresh rolled for 10 minutes. This porridge is much easier to digest, and my digestion is not strong

    I store the uncooked groats in a foil bag that had milk powder in it, exclude the air and refrigerate. Not being heated treated, your groats last well like this.

    Combined with licorice and scullcap tea, my energy slumps are much milder, eating your groats each morning for breakfast

    Best wishes fr Mike B.

    This is my pet rabbits favourite food. I know he isn’t exactly the target audience, but it’s comforting to know that it’s safe for him to eat. Thanks for selling these. I’ve been growing oats myself and de-husking them with a rolling pin so my bunny can eat the groats (his favourite part). He literally goes crazy over it. Buying this is way easier and has 100x more groats for him. The first time I showed him the sheer amount of oat groats he tried to put his head in the bag immideatly. Now every time I bring out the bag he popcorns like mad. You are making a rabbit very happy in the world.

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      Hey D, you have made my day!! So happy to hear that your rabbit is a Brushwoods fan!! Thank you for taking the time to share your bunny story. Kx

    A great product, the freshness really shines through.

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      THANK YOU JIM!! Glad we are ticking the right boxes for you. Kx

  6. Denise

    wow.. i have not had groats before, but i think they will be a constant in my pantry from now on. as soon as i brought my order home, i cooked some. (i also cooked the steel cut oats – there’s never too much cooked oats in the fridge) really like the texture and taste. must try a risotto with them. and will sub for rice in some other meals too. might add some to the steel cut oat porridge too. :) thank you!

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      Aren’t groats just the best!! Super glad to hear that you are loving them. I’m willing to bet you will never make a rice risotto again after you’ve tasted a groat risotto. ?

  7. Kaylene Connell

    The first time I ordered Brushwood groats I didn’t even know what they were. They’ve since become a staple food in our house. My husband cooks up a big batch and eats them daily for breakfast (mixed with peanut butter, cinnamon, chia seeds and whatever else he feels like throwing in there). My favourite use is as a rice replacement – they’re perfect topped with curry or stirfry or whatever else I might usually eat with rice. They’re also great in salads. I highly recommend giving groats a try and it’s great to be able to support an Australian business while you do it.

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      I actually remember when I first discovered groats as well – I still love the chewiness and the flavour!! I also love that they are more forgiving with cooking time than rice. Thank you for loving what I love Kaylene!! Kx

  8. Michelle

    Groats are great! If you cook some the night before and put them in the fridge, the next day they form the basis of a quick tasty meal. Just stir-fry tofu, cashews and cooked groats in some olive oil with bok choy, spring onions, hoisin sauce and sweet chilli sauce (and/or any other vegetables or herbs you like). Delicious!

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      Hey Michelle. Lovely to have you on board as a groataholic :-) You stirfry sounds so healthy and yummy. Thank you for taking the time to give us a review!!

  9. Susie Zammit

    Absolutely love groats! Creamy & nutty at the same time. Overnight in the slow cooker, 1 cup and 3.5 cups of water and we wake up to a warm, comforting breakfast for 4 serves. (Fine then in the fridge for a couple of days & reheated.)
    Thank you Kendra & Brushwoods!? Susie

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      So glad to have you as a “groataholic” :-)

    The Brushwood Groats are so versatile! I love making them to go with a casserole, stew, risotto and my absolute favourite – in salads! I use to buy pearl couscous (that were made overseas) but now I use Aussie Groats in all types of salads. They are delicious, nutritious and we LOVE supporting Australian farms, farmers and business!

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      And we love that you are supporting Australian farms, farmers and business!! It truly means a lot – thank you for such kind words.
      Have a fabulous Christmas and an even better 2021!! Kx

  11. Trish Roberts

    I tried the groats and love them! They are quite textured, which I like. I use them as an alternative to rice or pasta on the dinner plate or in a side salad. I also sub them in for porridge. Good texture and all the goodness of oats.

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      THANK YOU TRISH!! The texture gets me too!! So versatile and it looks like you’ve found lots of ways to enjoy them already. Kx

  12. Gail

    Came across Brushwood groats at a local market, and personally was happy to give them a try. However I did expect my husband to give the usual “I’m not eating that “response, but when I served them up in a Brocolli salad, he went back for seconds, onto a winner.

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      Oh that Broccoli Salad recipe is definitely a winner in our house as well!! I’m so pleased they were a hit with your husband. Thank you Gail!!

  13. Polly Telford

    The BRUSHWOOD Groats are my absolute favourite as there is so much you can do with them. I add them to salads and now our salads would not be the same without them. They are just brilliant added to a casserole and I have even perfected the Risotto made with the Groats. The list is endless as to what you can do with them, I love the Groats.

    • Kendra Kerrisk

      I’m with you Polly – I remember when I first discovered Groats, they’re like the best kept secret!!
