  6. Nutrition note: Old-Fashioned vs. Instant Oats Old-fashioned rolled oats is what most of us know as oatmeal. It's made from whole groats that have been steamed and flattened by large rollers. They cook in about 5 minutes. Instant oats are regular rolled oats that have been flattened even more, then cooked and dried. Instant oats are not the same as the sugary pulverized oats in individual packets.
