Quick Rolled Oats


Rolled oats are a good source of iron and dietary fiber and contain 7% DV of thiamine, which is a critical nutrient to energy metabolism. Interestingly, the soluble fiber in oats attaches to cholesterol molecules and transports them out of the body rather than being absorbed into the bloodstream, which can help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. Oats also help you feel fuller longer, which can help with weight control.

Quick oats are rolled thinner than regular (also known as “old-fashioned”) oats, so they cook more quickly without losing nutritional value.

Cooking Instructions

Use our quick rolled oats as instructed in recipes, or follow these directions to make quick and filling breakfast oatmeal:

1 serving = 1 cup milk or water + ½ cup oats + pinch of salt (optional)
2 servings = 1 ¾ cup milk or water + 1 cup oats + ¼ tsp. salt (optional)

Bring liquid to a boil in a medium-size, heavy-bottomed pot. Add oats and salt (if using), reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 2 to 5 minutes, depending on number of servings. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Remove from heat, cover, and let rest for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy topped with maple syrup, fresh fruit, yogurt, almond butter, Farmer Direct Co-op Hulled Hempseed or Milled Flaxseed, or any combination thereof.

Storage

Oats readily absorb odors, so for long-term storage, it’s recommended to store oats in an airtight glass container. Keep in a cool, dry place for 6 months (or up to 1 year if stored at less than 75 degrees F).
