    Which is healthier? Raw or cooked oats?

    regarding putting oaks in the shake. Is there even any difference? I have plenty of time before making my morning shake, so I have no problem cooking oats if its better, or putting them in the blender raw if its better.

    Any advice?

    I think cooked is better because it doesnt give it that grainy texture.

    No difference what so ever, nutritionally. Raw is probably better for convienence sake.

    I've always done raw. I just put cooked oats in my shake for the first time a few days ago, and YUCK!!! It was all thick and chunky. I could barely get it down without gagging.

    Quick oats mix up just fine in a regular blender, IMO. Steel-cut oats have double the nutritional density, but it's best to grind them in a coffee grinder before putting them in the shake; otherwise it will be very gritty and hard to drink.

    Have never tried putting cooked oats in a shake - raw works perfectly, especially if you use a blender - chops them up right good. As far as cooked, have never read anything positive about their use in shakes - usually people say it's a nasty texture. Give each a try and decide what YOU like better - everyone has their preferences for whatever reasons.

    Cook them

    Cook the oats.
    The starch is pretty difficult to digest without cooking.
    I suspect that eating a large quantity of raw oats will cause you to have a lot of gas.
    I'd cook them well.

    I eat both and see no difference in digestion or anything for that matter. It's probably different for everyone.

    Argh, I'm not sure if my blender is awful or what, but I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum from your opinion. It leaves alot of grainyness to the shake and makes it hard as hell for me to drink.

    I prefer cooked, definitely. Cup of oats, some skim milk, a bowl, and a 1:30 in the microwave... booya.
