How do you add oats to your diet?

    I think i need a new blender as well...i usually add some milk to the bottom of my shake (as all the unchopped oats are stuck together there) swirl it around and kick it back...its not the tastiest shot but better than grain alcohol

    How much oats do most of you use in a single shake, i know i put usually around a cup or a little less?

    Bump on the Bobs Redmill products. My local grocery store carries the line of foods.
    I know this is a little old now, but when you grind the oats up do they get oily or anything in the coffee grinder?

    No they're dry. Don't worry, it won't hurt your coffee grinder.

  4. Good, I dont want to use my blender multiple times a day. Cleaning it out sucks ass.

  5. Sorry to bump this old thread, but I feel that this is a good thread for the new guys to read over. Oats are essential to gaining and overall health. The coffee grinder trick helped me to increase my daily oat intake threefold on average.

    The oats will not ruin the grinder, but the trick is to keep going until you really get a powder. I grind a bunch at once and keep in a thick plastic bag (freezer bags work well). If you weigh them inside a few different leftover supplement scoops from your scoop stash, you can likely find one equal to a serving size. I found one which is exactly a serving by weight at two level scoops.

    To avoid the clumpiness or all the oats sinking to the bottom, my best recommendation is just to get in the habit of swishing it around a bit before each drink is taken. This keeps everything evenly mixed.

    I have also found that you can grind other seeds and grains for a more complex nutrient profile. Flaxseed, hemp, and sesame seeds all work well. Chia seeds will, however, make a thick, gelatinous mess as they thicken the shake up to almost solid. Anything else I've found shakes up perfectly as long as you grind the life out of it with the coffee grinder.

  6. I don't own a coffee grinder, but making oat flour from rolled oats works quite well in my blender. I blend about a weeks worth at a time, similar to what you are doing. Aside from shakes, I've found that the ground up oats cook up similar to cream of wheat. And then I'll add a few scoops of protein powder for flavor. Not too shabby.

  7. Edit: didnt see how old this post is.

    Surely it can be closed.

    Funny that you'd mention about the blender--my roommate just advised me of the same thing today after trying it with my Ninja. Thats a good idea for the cooking as well. I enjoy cream of wheat-style porridge, but have not been consuming it lately.

    Blended oats are very similar to cream of wheat when cooked, which is on of my favorites too. Cream of Wheat on its own is also a great carb source.
