    Quaker Instant Oats


    Ive tried many recipes for just plain old quaker oats but I have the hardest time getting them down;
    How do you guys feel about the low sugar Quaker Instant Oats as a sub for dried oats?

    Try the quaker weight control maple brown sugar kind first. Practically plain oatmeal with whey protein in it. Good stuff

    Just get the plain Oatmeal. Mine comes in big jug, the store brand. It just says "Quick Oats" on it. The ingredients are : 100% WHOLE GRAIN ROLLED OATS. No sugar at all, just oats.

    Banana Bread Weight Control is delicious. I also have my own method of taking pure rolled oats and either put too little water in or put it in the microwave for extra time and it comes out in one big clump. I then put some sugar free jelly on it and its really good. I also do the dry out method on the instant flavored ones and its really solid as well.

    I always cook mine, but I would bet that there is advantage to NOT cooking them. THe more you cook them, the higher you make the Glycemic index. (it makes the oats dissolve faster in your system, and therefore makes your blood sugar jump up faster). If you cook them less, or not at all, you actually lower the glycemic index.

    I would agree that eating them raw (uncooked) would be more beneficial since heat is usually an enemy of nutrients, I just cant imagine tryin to eat a cup of dry quick oats, I may consider suspending them in my water and protien mixture and just chugging them down

    uncooked oats + plain yogurt + whey + splenda depending on whey flavor = my usual cheat meal. The only reason it is a cheat is because I usually have way to much of it.

    I grind up rolled oats in the blender (magic bullet actually) before adding the rest of my morning shake ingredients.

    For cooked, I prefer steel cut oats over rolled. Better texture. I add chopped walnuts, dried dates and some coconut oil...

    I can't stand oats cooked! Just the texture of them i don't like. By the time i've eaten half of it the other half is just all gooey

    I just chuck a cup of oats into my shakes instead

    I'll take brown rice over ANY form of oatmeal everyday of the week, and twice on sundays. Not for any nutritional reasoning, just cuz I like the taste so much better and it's just as easy to make in the micro

    Another thing you can use is a coffe grinder. I buy a huge tub and grind them up and put them in a canister. Then I just mix a couple of scoops in my protein shakes and some times in just milk when I just need the carbs. I am not a carb fan, at least not good ones. Baked potatoes are about all I really enjoy so this helps me get my good carbs through out the day.
