Naked oats (Avena nuda) are oats which naturally lose their husk during the harvesting process. They are recommended for home milling because it is the husk that makes oats difficult to use at home. Oats have low starch levels, but are high in fibre, antioxidants, protein and unsaturated fats. This gives them a range of health benefits.
If you don’t have a home mill, you can use naked oats can be cooked whole as in this naked oat porridge recipe.
