Oats are my favorite grain, if I had to pick one. I used to cook them, but then started eating quick oats uncooked with whatever fruit I had on hand. I partly did this because quick oats are too mushy for my taste cooked, and partly because they're a healthy, fast breakfast on a summer day when I don't feel like cooking anyway, or don't want to take the time.
As I understand it, quick oats are not raw (as Veggie Primer already mentioned), but the brand I use is whole-grain. For some reason I started having trouble digesting slow oats, even when they were cooked, unless I added them to my bread dough.
