FAQ

How long does oatmeal last?

Most uncooked oatmeal’s last one to two years if they’re stored in a cool, dry place. Though, we do recommend following the printed dates on your oatmeal for safety.

How long to microwave oatmeal?

Microwaving oatmeal should take about one to two minutes. However, this time can vary depending on how much oatmeal you have and what’s included in your oatmeal. We recommend starting at one minute, then checking your oatmeal and reheating more as needed.

What can you put in oatmeal?

Fresh fruit, nuts, honey – just about anything you can think of pairs well with oatmeal; it’s up to what your flavor preferences are. We love throwing some diced avocados into our oatmeal!

What is the difference between steel-cut oatmeal and rolled oats?

Steel-cut oats aren't as processed as rolled oats. Steel-cut oats also have a nuttier flavor and are typically a little chewy compared to rolled oats.
