Understandably it might be confusing what kind of oats to use. There are old fashioned, quick oats and gluten-free oats so what oats do you use?!
You can use any of the above, however, quick oats are already pre-cooked and rolled thinner so they will cook faster. If using quick oats watch the oats when you bake that they do not get too brown too quickly.
