Well personally, I like to put water, or maybe some milk, in mine and nuke em for a bit. So no, they are not dry...but they are "Quaker" brand.

Yeah, I usually put water in and nuke them for a minute, and maybe add a little splenda as well for extra flavor. I coulnd't eat dry oats if I tried.

i can eat it dry with sugar but it dries your mouth out and isnt really as easy as with milk.

i eat it with milk and sprinkled with sugar.

wait a minute. I've seen threads where people put oats in there shake. Are those dry or cooked

Either. When the oats hit the liquid in the shake they won't be dry anymore; and most people blend their shakes, which of course will also blend the oat flakes.

I personally eat oats uncooked. I make a museli of oats, crushed nuts and dried fruit, add some milk and leave in the fridge for an hour or so; this softens the oats up nicely. Then add a splash more milk, chop some fruit onto the top (bananas or berries are good), and away you go - the perfect breakfast.

I put dry oats on top of cottage cheese and eat it all so its decent protien/carb.

I eat my oats raw for convenience. Take a swig of your favorite diet beverage (water, diet snapple, crystal light) after scooping some in your mouth and swallow. Not that tought.

I think when people say 'dry' it referrs more to when measuring oats than consuming them.

Actually, a lot of people I speak to frequently actually eat them uncooked.

i found that quaker now makes oatmeal in maple and brown sugar flavor, but it's better for you. only 4g of sugar per packet and 120 cals, something like 24 carbs and 4g of protein and only like 2g of fat. i put two of those packets with milk in the microwave for 2 mins and they are awesome.

I used to eat those before I realized that processed = bad. :(

I have the quaker "cylinder" original oats. I just boil water in the morning and add it to 2 cups of the oatmeal. Then I add a healthy serving of honey :)

Yeah, you can get these little Quaker Oats packets now. They have all kinds of flavors, so it kind of adds a little spice to just the normal oats.

i can't really say they're that bad, they just add more sugar/flavouring

Raw oats taste like cardboard, to me - raw or boiled. Can't stand them.

I find myself manually adding so much maple syrup, brown sugar, or honey that I might as well have eaten the processed (well, less sodium the manual way is nice... but I'd rather just factor the processed quaker stats in).

Have you tried just putting some cinnamon before and after you cook the oats, and a whole banana in it, the banana makes oats 100 times better. I look forward to eating my oats in the morning.

ShockBoxer

I've done the cinnamon... but a banana adds more carbs than I like for a start of the day meal. It would probably taste great, though.

I will mix them into a shake or a homeade batch of protein bars if possible, but somtimes I will just pack a cup of them dry into a tupperware and then combine a spoonful of oats with a mouthful of water, and eat them that way. It must look crazy to anyone who happens to see me eating them, lol...

I've been doing splenda, blueberries and milk. The excess milk turns into this delicious blueberry cream. A drop of vanilla is good too.

I prefer rice. People seem to forget that it can be sweetened like oatmeal. If you add extra water to it, it comes out mushy like oatmeal, lol.

Wow, this was one of my first posts and it got bumped. =)

I've been out of the habit of eating them in the morning, but I swear I'm going to start going back to it as soon as I start keeping milk around the house!
