Different Types of Oats
Quick Rolled Steel-cut
If your like me you might be a little bit confused about all the different types of oats…instant, quick, rolled, steel…aren’t they all the same? No.
have been cooked, dried and rolled and are the most processed way to eat oats. Instant oats are very thin and need only hot liquid to soften. They are ready in about 60 seconds. While they are the most convenient, they often have a lot of added salt, sugar, and other strange ingredients. Why is it the most convenient things are the most unhealthy???
are simply rolled oats that have been cut into smaller pieces. They cook in about 3-4 minutes.
are also known as Old-Fashioned Oats. They have been steamed, pressed with a roller, and dried. Cooking time is between 5-10 minutes. These are the oats that I use in my oatmeal recipes and in some baking recipes.
are also known as coarse-cut oats, Irish oats, or Scotch oats. They are oat groats that have been cut into 2-3 pieces rather than being steamed and rolled. Steel-cut oats are coarse in texture and remain chewy even after cooking and re-heating. They generally take about 20-25 minutes to cook.
