Place oats on a cookie sheet in a thin layer. 

Toast at 325°F for 15-60 minutes turning every 5-10 minutes until desired level of toasting is acquired.

  • Untoasted oats have no toasted flavor.
  • Golden toasted oats have a nice biscuit/cracker flavor, tasting almost exactly like saltines (sans salt).
  • Darker toasted oats have a distinct biscuit/cracker flavor. Not quite a burnt flavor.
Place toasted oats in a brown paper bag and let rest for 2-14 days, allowing volatile chemicals and burnt smells/flavors to dissipate.
