Large Flake Oats
Large Flaked Oats are simply oat groats that have been toasted and rolled into flakes so they cook quicker. Large flake rolled oats are one of the most common types of breakfast oatmeal, and are the oats most often used in baking applications. Our Gluten Free Large Flake Oats take 5 – 10 minutes to cook, and if that isn’t fast enough for you then check out our Gluten Free Quick Oats.
Quick Oats are simply oat groats that have been toasted and then cut into thirds before being rolled into a flake. This is done in order to produce a gluten free oat flake that will cook quicker. Quick Oats are very commonly found in the pantry of people who need quick, easy, and healthy breakfast options (aka the pantry of busy parents everywhere!). Our Gluten Free Quick Oats take about 2 – 3 minutes to prepare in the microwave.
Steel Cut Oats
Steel Cut Oats are simply oat groats that have been toasted and then cut into thirds. This type of oatmeal is the least common in North America, and they are also known as pinhead oats, coarse oatmeal, or Irish oatmeal. The steel cutting process results in a chewier and courser oatmeal that digests slower, leaving you feeling full for longer. Our Steel Cut Oats take a long time to cook, 35 – 45 minutes. In order to save time in the morning consider pressure cooking them (3 mins), or prepare them the night before.
