How to Toast Oats in a Skillet


Rolled oats are created from oat groats that are rolled into flat flakes and steamed. When you toast oats, it gives them a golden brown hue and a crispy texture. Toasting the oats also can enhance the flavor, which makes them taste better in recipes. The oats are typically toasted in a dry skillet on the stovetop because you can monitor them carefully to prevent the oats from burning.

  • Rolled oats
  • Bowl
  • Place a skillet over medium heat on the stovetop.

Tips & Warnings
