Oat Matzah for Pesach and what Beracha do you make

We have had many questions over the years about using Oat Matzah for the Seder and also what Beracha would you make on it.

It is difficult to believe that Oats is one of the 5 grains, as the five grains are expected to be two types of Chittim and 3 types of Se’orim. Oats is not a type of barley nor a type of wheat.

Eating Oat Matzah for the Seder would not accomplish the Mitzva, and the Beracha should be Ha’Adamah.

People don’t eat oatmeal on Pesach. That’s certainly not the goal of this post.
