Quick Cook Oats and old-fashioned oats are nutritionally identical. Old fashioned oats are rolled whole-grain oat kernels. In quick oats, on the other hand, the oat kernel is first cut into smaller pieces before being rolled. This makes it much easier for quick oats to absorb water than an old fashioned oat.
For baking, quick oats can be used in place of old fashioned oats particularly if the cooking time is short. A recipe that calls explicitly for quick oats generally has too short a cooking time for regular oats to fully cook (e.g. pancakes).
Quick cook oats are not instant oats, which are parboiled, dried, and often have sugar and salt added.
