    I shop at one of those discount scratch and dent stores regularly. Found out a few weeks ago my girls love oatmeal. Stopped today to restock and as is the nature of these places- they had no oatmeal. They did however have "steel cut oats". I bought some but had no clue what to expect. Since they were in a similar container to what I usually get I hoped for something ok. Opened it up when I got home and its pieces I guess rather than flakes. I to give to the ladies and is there any difference if using as treats?

    No difference in nutrients. It is just that they are cut rather then rolled.
