Hello, I am reading up on all these recipes and noticed that some call for oats.  Are these oats raw or cooked?  I haven't received my Nutribullet yet, but I'm gathering all the recipes for my grocery list.

When you see a recipe with oats, this is referring to old fashioned rolled oats and can be tossed in without cooking (could also be cooked if you'd like). If using Irish or steel cut oats, these must be cooked or soaked overnight (to remove enzyme inhibitors that impede proper digestion). You may also use instant oats uncooked, however, these have been processed more so are not as much desired as the whole oat options.
