Serving Size for Oatmeal or Oats

What amount of Water makes up one Serving of Oatmeal or Oats?

The typical serving size for oatmeal uses 1 cup of water. This is true for rolled oats (like Quaker brand rolled oats) or for steel cut oats (such as McCann's brand).

How much Uncooked, Dry Oats makes one Serving of Oatmeal?

For rolled oats, like Quaker brand or others, the serving size is 1/2 cup of uncooked oatmeal (rolled oats). That's:

For example: 1.5 cups of dry oatmeal serves 3 people, using 3 cups of water.

For steel cut oats, such as McCann's brand, the one serving is 1/4 cup of uncooked, steel cut oats.

Quaker's Heart Healthy Serving

I follow the "heart healthy" suggestion on the Quaker Box – mostly because it fills me up in the morning. This is 1.5 cups of water. To that I add 3/4 cup of dry rolled oats, or 4.5 tablespoons (one and one-half "quarter cup scoops") of steel cut oats.
