How To Prepare Oats

Oatmeal is a staple in my house because it’s healthy, delicious and easy to make. We have it most mornings.I love that it keeps you full and gives you energy all morning long.

Oatmeal is such a versatile recipe. Once you know how to cook oatmeal, you can get as creative as you’d like with all of your toppings and add-ins.

 

 

IN THE STORE, you will typically see these varieties:

Whole oat groats – Whole oat groats leave the grain intact. Consequently, they take the longest to cook and require the most liquid.

Steel cut oats – These are oat groats that have been roughly chopped. They cook more quickly than whole oat groats and result in a hearty, creamy porridge. 

Old-fashioned oats – Old-fashioned oats, or rolled oats, are made by steaming oat groats and rolling them into flakes. They have a short cooking time, 5 minutes, and they only require 2 cups water for every cup oats. 

Quick oats – Quick oats are similar to old-fashioned oats, but they are steamed longer and rolled more thinly. Like old-fashioned oats, they require 2 cups water for 1 cup oats, but they only take 1 minute to cook. Quick oats are great for days when you’re in a hurry.
