  • Irish or Scottish oats, this variety is made when the whole groat is cut into several pieces, rather than rolled.
    • used for porridge, to make meatloaf and savory congee (a nice alternative to rice), or add texture to stuffing.
  • Old-fashioned or whole oats, rolled oats look like flat, irregularly round, slightly textured discs.
    • used for warm breakfast bowl, granola bars, cookies, muffins, and other baked goods.
