What Type of Oats Can Be Used for Cinnamon-Toasted Oats?
We used rolled oats for this recipe. There are three types of oats—steel-cut, rolled and instant oats. Rolled oats, also known as old-fashioned oats, go through a flattening process after removing the oat hull. This process gives them a softer texture and reduces their cooking time.
How to Serve Cinnamon-Toasted Oats
One of our favorite ways to enjoy these quick toasted oats is on top of yogurt with sliced fresh or frozen berries. Top a Strawberry & Yogurt Parfait with cinnamon-toasted oats instead of granola, sprinkle them on Mixed-Berry Frozen Yogurt Bark or try them on an Acai-Blueberry Smoothie Bowl. Enjoy it in your cereal, on top of a salad or as a quick snack.
