Raw oats, 600 calories (they are pretty dense). Think of a cup of any whole grain, it's pretty heavy compared to oatmeal.
Dry rolled oats (with the outside layer milled off), about 300 per cup. If you look at the actual weight, which is listed after the 1 cup volume, you can see that a cup of oatmeal weighs about half as much as a cup of raw grain, so it makes sense.

Rolled= 150 per 1/2 cup, 300 per cup
Steel cut= 150 1/4 cup, 600 per cup
All dry."9 Out of 10 Americans Do not get eat enough whole grain"....
...Making up for the other 9 since 2004

lots of nutrion info there, good way to keep track of how many cal. your getting too.
WTF is the difference between rolled & steel cut oats? I use raw quaker oats, I'm assuming that's rolled since they're 300cal/cup

Rolled oats have the outer layer (and a lot of fiber) milled off so they do not offend the average person by being too crunchy, then steamed and flattened to be more fluffy.
Another reason for separating the outer layer from the inside of the grain is b/c they can be sold separately for more $$ as rolled oats and oat bran...
