Get a coffee bean grinder and grind them yourself.

I just blend them up with my shakes....alittle bit funny texture, but it's okay.....better than eating them cooked, IMHO

Coffee Grinder works very well for this, I make oat powder with one to use in my shakes every morning.

Wouldn't grinding them into a powder kind of defeat the purpose of using oats?
I just blend them into the shake.

1 or 2 ounces of oat, even grinded is gonna be very tick and hard to drink isn't it? How can you guys drink that? Is there something "special" to do to prepare it or you just grind the oat, and add it to your shake?

I was going to mention oat flour. I notice that when I use regular rolled oats in my homemade MRP that the oats are heavy and tend to sink to the bottom. Those last few sips are nothing but oatmeal. The oat flour is lighter and would probably mix a little better. I haven't used oat flour yet, but I noticed that a local health food store has it in bulk so I might switch to oat flour for this reason.

But oat flour is row isn't it? Must be harsh on the stomach.

Then fire up the coffee grinder then!Originally Posted by SJA

Not a bit. And it mixes way better than rolled or cut oats.Originally Posted by sir.kevin

Oats are for suckers, just use Dextrose

Or, if you're really extreme, oreo cookies! ExNihilo approved

i like the oreo cookies idea ex, but i'll never see 8% again if i start thinking like that...lol
I just throw a cup and a half of oats in the blender with the protein powder and it chops them up small enough to get donw easy with only a little bit of a funny texture...very tolerable though IMO
06-01-2005, 05:26 PM
I have used oat flour for quite a while but the stuff doesn't mix very well. Ground oats seem to mix better and don't settle out as much.
One thing to note, if you have hayfever there are reports of oat flour getting contaminated with ragweed (verified but not common). I also read somewhere that uncooked oats tended to collect toxins from fungus but cooking eliminated them both. No idea if it's true? Anyone happen to know about that part?

yeah i grind up my oats in the blender with a trasy cup of milk and a cup of egg whites. not the most delicious taste but definitely easier than eating the actual oatmeal, for me atleast.

Oatmeal Cinnamon Shake
2 C. Oats
2 C. Skim Milk
2 scoops Vanilla Whey Protein
Splenda & Cinnamon to taste
Extra milk or water if necessary
1/2 C. Fat Free Cottage Cheese (optional)
6 T. Pasteurized Egg White (optional)
1 T. Flax oil or Extra Light Olive Oil (optional)
1260cals/107gPro/145gCarb/29gFat (w/ all options)
The whole works will fit into a 1qt bottle. Just don't drink it all in one sitting. When I'm lazy I'll make one of these in the morning and sip it until lunch time.

A coffee grinder works well, but only grinds enough for 1 serving. I use a blender & grind enough for 2-3 weeks at a time. I have a real nice blender, not sure if a cheapo would work as well. I've also used a food processor with good results.
Oats are one of the few grains where the GI really doesn't change when ground up.
Also note- a half cup rolled oats & a half cup ground oats are not the same quantiity. The density is much greater when ground & a smaller scoop will equate to a serving. I use a 70cc scoop from a protein container, it holds 39g of oats, I've weighed it on a scale.

here ya'll go
I have bought both the brown rice and oat bran fiber powder. The oat bran fiber is awesome. Great for at work or at the gym with nothing but a shaker
06-02-2005, 11:47 AM
A little spendy on teh brown rice. I get 25 pounds for $7 at Costco.
06-03-2005, 08:37 AM
I did see that, but don't know if it's just grinded brown rice or kind of "cooked" brown rice powder.Originally Posted by Max32
How is it? easy to drink?
06-03-2005, 08:39 AM
Yeah but you still need to grind it.Originally Posted by SJA
06-06-2005, 11:52 PM
i grind about 200g carbs worth of oats per day, split into 2 homemade mrps....it goes down fine, trust me. its 4 times in the grinder. i dont have a problem with settling in my shaker cup, i just swirl it up before i take a swig....i put in extra so i dont feel bad about not drinking the crap at the bottom though, so i still get the right amount.
hey, the price is right....and no chewing.

If you put the "Double Stuff" oreos into the formulation do you think it would double the results?Originally Posted by exnihilo
I purchased some and mix it in with some of my protein shakes. Changes the flavor somewhat but it's pretty good and easy to drink. Gets a little sticky to my hand held blender but I just let the blender in for a little more time than usual and it takes care of it.Originally Posted by sir.kevin

Double stuff oroes cause incredible mass development. Beware though, overuse of the double stuff oreo is the true cause of the modern bodybuilder's "GH gut"Originally Posted by RMT
06-07-2005, 12:03 PM
That's ok..... I figured out how to overcome that. When cutting instead of just 6 diet sodas for lunch I drink 8 and "ABRACADABRA!!!!" I look thinner!!!!Originally Posted by exnihilo
Give it a try LOL!!!

Oat bran (ground or not) is a lot grittier than grounded oat meal. I wouldn't use it in a shake.
07-14-2007, 03:36 PM
1 cup oats in coffee grinder then down the hatch chase with water
