Instant and rolled are not the same.

From less processed to most processed you have:
- oat groats ... look like rice kernels and take the longest to cook (most of an hour)
- steel-cut oats ... 1/2 to 1/3 the size of groats, because they are sliced up (steel cut!) groats, take less time (~25 minutes) to cook
- rolled or *traditional* oats ... groats that are steamed and rolled flat; at Walmart they're in the cannister with the *blue* ribbon and take about 15 or so minutes of simmering to cook
- *quick* oats are rolled oats that are cut up a bit and rolled thinner, so they cook within about 5 minutes (they may be the reddish cannister)
- *instant* oats are precooked and soft, and cook within a minute ... or just add boiling water and stir.

In baking rolled and quick oats are *mostly* interchangeable. Instant oats are not.

As far as I know, rolled oats are the same as the instant kind.

I have seen rolled Oats have used them before, but I have not been able to find them at wal mart or Martins. they have 100 whole wheat and the instant kinds. Help I want to try some recipes but I can't until I can figure out where to get these at. Have they changed names being packaged differently. am I just not with it. lol
