It only takes 1/2 cup of dry oatmeal to make 1 cup of cooked oatmeal. Each cup of cooked oatmeal has 166 calories, 5.9 grams of protein, 3.6 grams of fat and 28.1 grams of carbohydrates, including 4 grams of fiber, or 16 percent of the daily value.
Accordingly, can you eat too much oatmeal?
Oatmeal isn't free of calories, so if you eat too much of it, it's just as likely to cause weight gain as any other food, especially if you load up your bowl with calorie-rich extras. According to the USDA, 1 cup of oatmeal cooked with water has approximately 165 calories.
Can I make oats with water?
Bring water to a boil in a saucepan, and stir in your oats. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook oats until soft, 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. If all the liquid has reduced before your oats are tender, stir in a bit more water or milk and continue to cook.
