This stuff gives you an amazing boost in energy and is an excellent recovery food for weight lifting. You could even put in a scoop of Dextrose powder to help replenish your glycogen stores even faster.
Note, I under hydrate my oatmeal because I can't eat it if it's not slightly chewy. You might want to add more water.
