Can I use old fashioned oats instead of quick oats in cookies?
The worst was when I ran out of fast cook oats and had to run to the store in the middle of a recipe – it’s happened more times than I like to remember! So, I’m reviewing all things oatmeal in this post – specifically, the difference between the two, substitutions, and the simple hack to make quick oats.
Can you use quick oats in a recipe that calls for old fashioned oats?

Each type of Oatmeal is cut and prepared differently. Quaker® Old Fashioned Oats are whole oats that are rolled to flatten them.

What is the difference between rolled oats and old-fashioned oats?
Steel-cut oats are groats that have been sliced into 2 or 3 pieces but not rolled. Rolled oats are groats that have been steamed and flattened with huge rollers to form large flakes. These are sometimes called old-fashioned oats or regular rolled oats. They take about 15 minutes to cook.

A lot of recipes will call for old fashioned rolled oats, and they do add a lot of chewy texture to the cookie. First, quick oats tend to make the cookie softer. Second, it’s what I always have in my house. Instant oatmeal also cooks faster (even in cookie form), and in my opinion tastes the same as the rolled oats.
