You could make a granola or a muesli pretty easily. You'd need steel-cut oats. But very easy to make, reasonably healthy (in the right portions), and it'll keep forever. A great use of oatmeal in my book. Mark Bittman has a good granola recipe and I got the muesli recipe from Saveur, but I am sure lots of recipes are good for that type of thing.
The lunch truck at my work has this drink called "avena", which I guess means oatmeal in Spanish. It was pretty good, a sort of watery semi-smooth oatmeal "smoothie". Apparently it is a popular drink in South and Central America. I saw a couple recipes when I googled the word. Check it out.
