the Soulful Spoon to thank for this method. She has been a wonderful source of nutritional information and for food ideas while my insides have healed. Last year I suffered from a bowel infection that left me unable to consume foods with the exception of green grapes and rice.
I was still having some difficulty with oats, yet wanted to be able to eat them as they are so good for me and I enjoy them. Hence my willingness to try soaking them. I have no idea if the soaking removes any good benefits, but it does take away that gooeyness. It is also recommended for raw buckwheat, which I have done before.
Here are a couple of articles/posts on the subject:

On to my recipe.
Overnight Oats with Pumpkin and Blueberries
1/2 cup 5 minute oats
1/4 - 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup blueberries
1 tbsp maple syrup
Soak oats in water overnight. You can leave these on the counter, thought a loose cover is a good idea. In the morning, pour the water and oats into a strainer and rinse well with fresh water. At this point your oats are ready to eat. They are a bit chewy still. If you want you can cook them, but it is not required. Mix in the pumpkin, blueberries and maple syrup. Sprinkle with cinnamon. i also like to add a tablespoon of raw pumpkin seeds.
Here's another breakfast oat recipe from The Soulful Spoon.
Do you soak your oats or any other grain.
