No your are not the only one! I do it all the time! pretty much daily! except i don't mix any sugar with them i eat them just plain! I think they taste better dry than cooked too. i eat them daily right before my workout usually about 100-200 calories worth right in my car right before i go into the gym and drink bottled water to wash 'em down.
uncooked oat is how it's most often eaten in Denmark - as cereal with milk (and sugar), or turned into Muesli - Also try giving them a quick roast on a hot skillet (light brown) and sprinkle over yoghurt natural.... yummmmmmmy
Dry uncooked oats mixed with chopped apples, raisins, and a little sugar and cinnamon, mmm mmm. Or I like them mixed with some fruity yougurt-it sticks with you for quite a while.
I add uncooked oatmeal to my cereal every morning and I love it, I do this because I can't stand it cooked.
I like dry oats mixed with an equal amount of cold applesauce, a few raisins, a dash of cinnamon, a few grains of salt and a slash of cold vanilla soymilk or almond milk. It's like a deconstructed apple crisp with vanilla ice cream (after it gets all melted and gooey).
raw oats + cheerios + brown sugar = SO good.
Raw oatmeal mixed with yogurt is yummy for breakfast - and keeps you full for a long time!
Yep, I can eat dry raw oats by the handful (several handfuls that is!) Also like them with milk. Sometimes gives me a stomach ache though...
I've always like them uncooked, but if someone will cook them for me.. I will eat them. I add 1/2 uncooked raw oats to 1 cup of yogurt, and a half scoop of whey protein powder. This is my before the workout breakfast. I really like eating them this way. It's quick easy and I'm done in mins and out the door..
As a little treat I sometimes mix together peanut butter, honey and dried oats. It's delicious!
I love just plain raw oats. I will open the container and get a handful. My kids now will do the same thing. I can't get them to eat cooked oats now.
I screwed up a Gordon Ramsay recipe by not using enough butter, but it turned out so fabulous, that we make it all the time.
4 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
Dried fruit to taste (I used 5 ounces of a cranberry/cherry/papaya mix from Sams')
3 tbs honey
8 tbs butter (this is where I screwed up. I only put 4)
Mix together, pat into a pan, and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or so.
It is supposed to make a bar, but we got more of a granola texture. It was SO GOOD! My kids and I fought over the last few servings. It really wasn't too high in calories, either.
Well I like making those no-bake oatmeal chocolate cookies! Instead of cooking the oats with the cocoa, I just pour the chocolate stuff over dry oats and freeze them.
For breakfast every day. I mix them with berries and yoghurt - yum yum. And sometimes for desert I mix the oats with some defrosted frozen raspberries which are all slushy and yummy - totally delicious! And I thought I was the only one.....Ax
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
