Baked oatmeal is a healthy breakfast option. Oats contain many important vitamins and minerals and are full of soluble fiber and beta-glucan which has numerous health benefits including helping reduce cholesterol and helping to regulate blood sugar.
Rolled oats, also known as old-fashioned oats, are oat groats that are steamed and rolled into flakes. The larger surface area means they will cook more quickly than steel-cut oats. Quick oats on the other hand are cut into smaller pieces, rolled thinner, and steamed longer so they cook more quickly but don't end up with as much texture as rolled oats.
