Is any nutritional value lost from not cooking oatmeal?

Sometimes on long backpacking trips, I will eat oatmeal without cooking it first, usually due to a lack of either time or fuel.

Is there any nutritional value lost from that or would I gain less calories from doing so?

No, no nutritional value is lost from not cooking oatmeal. The only thing you will miss are the nutritional components of whatever liquid you would usually use to cook it.

The only side effect might be that the digestion is slower as your stomach relies on liquids to help digest very "thick" food. Because of that, it might be that your body takes in more slowly the ingredients within the oatmeal but in the end it will be the same.
