I just got the baddest cuisinart coffee grinder, hoping to grind oats fine enough to add to my shakes, but no matter how long I grind them for, there are still pieces of oat large enough to add texture to the shake. Is this as good as it gets?

its kinda the nature of oats..no matter how fine you grind them, they'll still absorb water and bind together.

edit: in fact, the more you grind them up, the faster they'll absorb the liquid.

You can get them pre-ground at a health food store.
More expensive though..
I just use a hand wand grinder to grind mine - does a fairly ok job.
