Okay, you can laugh at me. But I never really thought about it before; I've always boiled the oats in water while thinking you have to in order to properly digest it.

i eat raw oats all the time, what i do is i mix the oats with peanut butter and then spread them on wheat bread. But then i also just mix them with peanut butter and eat it with a spoon.

Nice. I needed a source of low GI carbs to mix with protein shakes I take to school. Thanks :cool:

Just shovel a spoonful in your mouth and wash them down with some water. I used to do that all the time. Now I incorporate them into my homeade protein bars.

yeah, because the oats we normally get are actually rolloed and steamed. its not like they grow on the plant like that. i imagine pinhead oats wouldn't be very well absorbed though.

be sure to drink lots of water tho.

Yep - I just ate 3/4 cup with milk, olive oil and a banana - my bulking shake.

I used to eat them raw with a protein shake.

I would mix a scoop of chocolate whey in milk and pour it over my raw oats and eat them like cereal. Tasted wonderful.

I would blend oats and whey in water and drink it as my breakfast. I even tried throwing tuna into it. Not good.

To make sure we're on the same page (we probably are), I use "Old Fashioned" Quaker Oats -- the kind in a cylinder air-tight container.

oats oats oats, so far- the oats have been blended, to fluff (thanks BUILT)... and used for her amazing protien waffels...
yum, although I guess it would be good in a drink. I had been blending brown rice, for the texture, and thought they were good too...I guess you'd have to try it

I think eating raw oats will give you lockjaw. I have blended them up in shakes many times.

I have a coffee bean grinder. After putting one cup's worth (54 g low GI carbs) of oats in there for a few minutes, it blended into a fine powder. It went down easily with the shake (dissolved it with 500 mL milk).

This one convenience has made me quite happy

That's what I use. Throw them in the blender with whatever else. It's fine. Although, I think you might want to put them in last. I read somewhere that sometimes when they are on the bottom, it jams up the blender.
