    Don't use the instant oats that come in the tiny packets. There are two types of rolled oats in large cylindrical containers. There's the "Old Fashioned Rolled Oats" and the "Quick Oats." If it's calling for rolled oats and that's all that it says, then use the Old Fashioned Rolled Oats.

    I buy rolled oats for making oatmeal cookies because you get larger oatmeal flakes. I like to have some texture and body to my cookies. It would depend on what recipe you were doing. If it calls for rolled oats they probably mean the longer cooking ones not the instant ones.

    This reminds me of a story about DH's sister when she was learning to cook. Apparently she was making oatmeal cookies and she asked her mom, "How do you roll the oats?" I think of that every time I hear the expression rolled oats.

    Rolled Oats are Old-Fashioned Oatmeal.

    I'd use the Old Fashioned Oats and if it was too much texture for me I'd just wizz them in my food
    processor a second or two. It depends on you , what you like.
    Oh they sound good.

    I usually use the old fashioned version - for cookies, apple crisp topping, in meat loaf, eating as cereal!

    I way prefer the old-fashioned oatmeal - can't stand the instant stuff anymore. One can cook an extra serving or two - and it reheats in the microwave beautifully.
