Rolled oats simply means oat groats (hulled grain) that have been husked and crushed between rollers and then dried. There are different varieties of oats depending on how thinly they have been pressed. Quick cooking (like the regular Quaker oats), instant oats (the ones that come in a sachet and can be added to boiling milk or water in a mug and eaten instantly), old fashioned oats (the same as rolled oats), steel cut oats (where the groat is simply split up - takes the longest to cook)
To make your own buttermilk take 1 cup of milk and add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lime juice to it. Stir and let it sit till the mixture curdles. Use as required. For this recipe only 3/4th cup is required so I used about 2 teaspoons of white vinegar.
If you want you can reduce the amount of sugar from 1/4 cup to a little less than that. Alternatively you may use honey but it will make the dough more sticky so try reducing the amount of buttermilk to maybe just 1/2 cup instead of 3/4th cup (only if you are using honey)
