I'd have to say oat bran, although truthfully I'm not sure!

Hey lydia, i thought I'd let you know the Bobs red mill is 20% off at job lot this week. Happy cooking!

the answer, I believe, is oat bran, known as "salvado de avena" here in Costa Rica!

I would have to guess "oat bran"

I'm going with oat bran. None currently in my pantry.

Rolled oats

I would assume that oat bran has the most dietary fiber per measure. Technically, rolled oats and oatmeal are one and the same product, just interchangeable names. Since I am gluten intolerant, I always have the certified gluten free oats in my pantry and use them in various forms.

Oat bran, fer sure. Well, almost sure :)

So sneaky, to encourage us to doubt the obvious -- or else we're all wrong!

Oat bran.

(I've no idea, but I want to soak oats in buttermilk now!)
