What can you do with oats?

Oats come in three popular forms- Rolled oats, quick oats, and steel-cut oats. They can also come in lesser known forms, like oat bran and oat flour.

Rolled oats, quick oats, steel-cut oats, and oat bran can all be enjoyed as oatmeal or overnight oats.

All forms of oats, along with oat flour, can also be used in many more ways, including baking, desserts, and snacks.

Can you eat raw oats?

Besides steel-cut oats, you can technically eat oats raw. However, the texture is chewy and lacks any real flavor.

It can be added in its raw state to many things, like yogurt, smoothies and even used to coat proteins, replacing breadcrumbs.
