Ideas for preparing rolled oats

Despite being the most commonly made dish using oats, oatmeal is not the only delicious way to prepare organic oats. In this blog we will talk about some of the ways oats are prepared. These so-called “old-fashioned oats” are made by steaming raw oats and rolling them into flakes. The process stabilizes the healthy oils within the oats, maintaining the oats freshness while also giving them a softer texture. The soft texture of the oats allows them to cook faster.

Rolled oats are also available as quick or instant oats when they have been made into thinner flakes and steamed longer. Quick oats, as the name indicates, take a shorter time to prepare and are ideal for baking or making a quick bowl of cereal. While both quick oats and whole rolled oats have the same nutritional value, the two variations differ in texture: quick oats will give the recipe a creamy texture, while old fashioned oats give a nutty texture. 

How to cook rolled oats

To prepare oatmeal, boil water and add a pinch of salt. Cook oats in water for about five minutes and serve warm with toppings of choice. Oatmeal is a perfect breakfast base to add whatever fruit or flavors you would like. we recommend maple syrup, strawberries, Chia seeds, and even some supplements like Maca Powder to boost energy and brighten your mood. Oats are also great when cooked into pastries like muffins and oatmeal cookies. There is no wrong way to prepare oats, check out our organic recipes to see some more ways we use them!
