Basically my only experience with oats is in oatmeal but I need some new ideas
I generally get a little creative with Chocolate Whey Powder when trying to gain weight, and sometimes will blend one scoop of whey powder with a cup of milk, and then microwave a cup of old fashioned oats with water (water is fully absorbed) and mix these together for a chocolate treat (540c/60carbs/40pt/under 10 in fats). Sometimes I will add in some natty PB to up the fat content. Chocolate-whey/PB oatmeal rocks.
In addition, I will make Whey-Oatmeal cookies as well, if interested in the recipe let me know!
You can also add in raisins, cinamon, variety of fruit (like blue berries, bananas, stawberries, etc: Your just limited by your imagination when it comes to oats and what you like and dislike when adding in something.
