    Yes, the 1 minute stuff is over processed. Regular rolled oats only takes 3 mins. in the microwave and they are much better for you.

    That's funny...I did the same thing when I first came to this site.

    They are still in my cabinet over a year later.

    You can get them cheaper at health food stores if you buy them in bulk.

    I don't even cook the three minute oats for three minutes. I like them semi-raw. It's sort of like how I prefer al dente pasta. Maybe it has something to do with the Italian in me.

    are you referring to the quick oats or the instant oats? The only thing in the quick oats are 100% rolled oats

    Sadly,

    Jodi is right. Is it so hard to wait 2 more minutes for the regular oats to cook???

    It doesn't make that much of a difference, just finish the quick oats and get the old-fashioned next time. As long as you're eating the quick oats with a good portion of lean protein I believe you will be fine, they're the same thing, just shredded up into smaller bits.

    Peace.

    Yea can someone explain why regular oats are better then the 1 min? I mean its the exact same ingrediant just look like they put it in a blender. Some people, like me, dont care about the extra time but I like the texture better with the 1 min Oats. Plus the regular Oats bubble up spilling all over my microwave

    The one minute oats are processed, that's how they cook faster. Processed foods breaks down faster, that's why the regular oats are better and the steel-cuts oats even better.

    The regular oats don't bubble up if you have the right amount of water.
