I got yummy real oats to make cookies with; now I see all the recipes I have call for quick oats. Can I not use real oats instead? won't it taste better? Or will it be a big disaster. Thanks!
I make a lot of oatmeal cookies and never use quick oats--you should be fine.
My absolute favorite oatmeal cookie comes from right under the lid of Quaker whole oats. Definitely use the whole oats-- they're way better.
Ditto. That's my favorite recipe. I grew up on it and am planning to make a batch next weekend. I always add golden raisins and sometimes walnuts.
Just don't use steel cut oats. They won't cook sufficiently if used in a cookie recipe and you'll have hard bits throughout.
By all means use the whole oats for your cookies; if for some reason you want a less "oaty" texture, though, you can pulse old-fashioned oats a couple times in a food processor for a quick oats equivalent.
I just made a recipe of oatmeal cookies this morning that called for quick and I used old-fashioned with no problems.
Thanks! The real oats worked, and the cookies were delicious.
