What Are Rolled Oats?

Question: What are rolled oats? Can I substitute old fashioned Quaker Oats oatmeal?

Answer: Rolled oats technically are made from the oat groats that come from oat grain and have been rolled so that they cook quickly. The easy answer is, yes, old fashioned oatmeal is a good choice for making Fruit and Yogurt Overnight Oats. In fact, any type of oatmeal can be used–it’s just that the thicker the rolled oat, the more chewy texture it brings. For ideas on substitutes, see the Cook’s Thesaurus.
