  1. The cooked oatmeal porridge with ample fruit the crunch of nuts or coconut is the best Sunday morning to myself kind of deal. But often this is still to be shared. I don’t mind, but the change is you see it us not instant so my elbow power gets tested.

Types of oats in the market

Though the aisles are filled with oats, it is important to know the types of oats available so you know you are making the right choice for your family

Whole oat groats

Oats that is harvested is hulled and cleaned of all the inedible husks. This is the whole grain without any further processing. It takes the longest to cook, yet due to its raw nature is the purest of the grain.
I have never been able to use this as I have not found it so far. But I do have my eyes open for this.

Steel-cut oats

To make the cooking process faster, the whole groats may be cut into pieces. This is done using a sharp steel blade. This is steel-cut. This still takes a while to cook. I love the steel-cut oat porridge. Usually, I soak the oat for two hours before cooking to cut down the cooking time.
This is the same I have used in oats idly

Rolled Oats

Instead of cutting, the oats are rolled under cylinders. This flattens the grain into a much faster to cook option. Rolled oats is what I have used for classic oatmeal porridge and chewy oatmeal banana cookies.

Stabilised and unstabilised oats

Stabilised oats are steamed oats that have been rolled. This makes the lipase in the oats denature. This makes the oats stay longer on the shelf. Unstabkized oats are just the oat grain rolled and the enzymes are intact. The digestibility if stabilized oats is quite high when compared to unstabilized.

Instant oats

Precooked oats are dried and then rolled thin. This makes the oats quick to cook. This increases the shelf life yet nutritionally this is the most processed form of oats. Though marketed as useful, it is not the best if you are watching your glycemic index.

The baked oatmeal

Now, this is the coolest of all the baked oatmeal recipes. I absolutely love the streaks of blueberries in it, zero oil, no added sugar and still so yummy. Make as bites or on the sheet pan and then cut into oatmeal squares. It is a cool recipe, don’t miss it and makes your morning so much easier. As most of the ingredients in this baked oatmeal recipe are allergen-friendly, the recipe will work for school snack box too.  If you don’t have blueberries, any berry would work. If not throw in some raisins or coconut it is still all good. Again, this recipe is a make-ahead option, freezes so well and honestly doesn’t last so long for me to test how long it will stay in the freezer. Sometimes it makes up for that cold treat you need to make a better day.
Go ahead, save this baked oatmeal bites recipe pin to use it later. I am sure you will be quite easily whipping them out in the meal preps.
