Can you bake with quick oats?
No, you really shouldn't. Quick-cooking oats are cut smaller so they, well, cook quicker. This is not good for baking oatmeal because other ingredients need time to cook as well. The same goes for Instant oats you don't want to use them in this recipe either. Stick to steel-cut oats or old-fashioned oats.
Can Oatmeal be reheated?
Yes, I do all the time. I microwave it for 30 minutes at a time adding just a splash more of water or milk as needed to keep the consistency I want. Make sure to stir the oatmeal so it heats evenly and you are good to go!
How long can you keep baked oatmeal?
About the 3 days. Any more than that and it gets too hard to reheat. Always check it before reheating and eating it. If it smells off, looks off, or is too hard to touch toss it, don't even try to save it. This then gives you a good reason to make another batch!

How do I save oatmeal for later?
In an airtight container in your fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month. A good Tupperware container is perfect for storing in the fridge.
Food Storage Options
If freezing wrap oatmeal in plastic wrap then store it in a freezer bag and smooth all the air out. Try freezing in individual portions for a great freezer breakfast you can take out the night before and go!
How do you know if cooked oatmeal is bad?
Obviously, if there is mold toss it. But also look for any discoloration and of course do the sniff test. If you think it's even a bit off just be safe and toss it! No point in getting sick when it's so easy to make another batch!
