Is There a Nutritional Difference between Raw Oats and Cooked Oats?
If you’re wondering how many calories are in a cup of oats, raw versus cooked, you may be surprised to find out they don’t have much of a difference in nutritional value. Raw or cooked, oats are a great source of fiber and essential vitamins. Source
Eating a bowl of raw oats “moistened with water” doesn’t sound all that appetizing. And I am not sure it makes sense from a nutrition perspective. Normal cooking takes little away from oats. In fact, cooking helps release some nutrients that your body can’t extract from raw oats. Source
