Rolled Oats, Quick Oats, Instant Oats... whats the difference anyway ?
Rolled oats are flatter, and are exactly that, rolled between rollers. They are steamed a bit so they cook a little faster than the thicker Old fashion Oats.
Quick Oats are even flatter and a bit pulverized, so they cook even faster than rolled oats. Many prefer quick oats when baking cookies, so you do not get big flakes of oatmeal.
Instant Oatmeal ... is actually already cook and dried before packaging. No wonder they take an instant.
