What Type of Oats Can Be Used for Cinnamon-Toasted Oats?

We used rolled oats for this recipe. There are three types of oats—steel-cut, rolled and instant oats. Rolled oats, also known as old-fashioned oats, go through a flattening process after removing the oat hull. This process gives them a softer texture and reduces their cooking time.
