Does anyone know if a company makes Oatmeal in grinded powder form? Im wanting it to use for post workout shakes and such.
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?

Been using it for years, works great. And it's sooooooo much easier than the coffe grinder thing.
Alot of supermarkets have it.

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
Mmmm, Oreo Cookies....
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
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?
