Can I use quick cooking oats to make these?
To be honest, I haven’t used quick oats to make these and that’s probably because I hardly ever have quick oats since the traditional oats are more versatile for me. But I would gladly share my thoughts on this. Quick oats are slightly precooked oats if I am correct, therefore they may likely cook faster if used. But I don’t know if they would crisp up as well as these. My candid suggestion would be to get the good ol’ traditional Oats and save the quick oats for your oatmeal porridge ?
Hope that helps. Thanks for saying hello ?
