Choosing oat varieties at the grocery store:
If you’re new to making oatmeal, or using oats in general. You might find the process of selecting oats a little tedious. There are so many varieties! From quick cooking oats, to instant oats, old-fashioned rolled oats, and steel cut oats. It can feel a bit exhausting!
Typically, I always choose old-fashioned rolled oats oatmeal recipes and baking. They cook quickly (just 5 to 10 minutes) and are a more wholesome form than instant oats (which can usually have added sugars and preservatives).
Just to note – not all oats are gluten-free. So check package labelling to see if they’re gluten-free certified if this is important to you.
Here’s a great article from All Recipes about the difference between types of oats and how they’re manufactured, and another one from Jessica Gavin on all the various types of oats varieties and culinary applications.
