do you need to refrigerate cooked oats?

I'm thinking of making oat balls as snacks to eat through the day. But I wonder whether the oats have to be refrigerated once cooked. I only cook the oats in water. these are old-fashioned oats.

I called Quaker Oats, but they weren't so sure. They did suggest that you could eat the oats from the box raw or mix with nuts like a trail mix.

They also suggested their granola bars - but that has sugar.

Your thoughts?
