I do steel cuts in the micro. Just pop 1/4 to 1/2 cup of them into a bowl and add water. Probably 3-4x the volume of the dry oats. Zap em for about 2-3 minutes, until they almost overflow the bowl (keep an eye on them). Then walk away for about 15-20 minutes. Come back, stir, zap them for another minute and they are good to go. I mix in stevia powder, cinnamon, a drop of vanilla extract, and if I have them some dried cranberries.
Usually I'll do the first part as soon as I wake up. After a shower/shave and tossing a few eggs in the pan they're ready to finish up.

Anyone mention PUMPKIN OATS yet? Add about 60g of canned pumpkin to a half cup serving of oats with some cinnamon, nutmeg, and splenda. BOOM! Freaking fantastic pumpkin pie oats. And you get a little extra fiber as a side.

I add oats to shakes all the time. Get a good ol' cheap coffee grinder (10 bucks at wal mart) and spin some oats in that thing for about 20 seconds. Makes a fine powder.
I also use that grinder for flax seeds and dried chilies to add to soups, chili, spice mixes, etc.

Thanks for the advice, I have always been curious about that as well and thought it would just clump. I can't wait to try it now!

I would suggest adding the pro powder AFTER its been cooked, as the heat will denature the protein.
I like taking egg whites, mixing in say about 1/4 cup oatmeal, and protein powder, and then cooking, mixing every minute until its formed a delicious scrambled egg/oatmeal mixture. I just picked up some cinnamon oatmeal flav isolate (nutrabolics,) thats delisshhhhh in oatmeal.
