What's the Bracha Rishona on oatmeal/oat flakes with cold milk? Is it Pri Adama or Mezonot? Do we need extra Sheakol on milk?
I was asked to edit to the simplest version and post a source...
TL:DR In order for a grain to become “mezonot,” the kernels must either:
- be broken (even partially)and then cooked.
- lose their form completely as a result of cooking.
- have the outer shell (bran) removed, and the grains stick together a little as a result of cooking.
Mishnah Berurah 208:6,15
