The store bought pouch contains fiber in the form of inulin, which acts as a prebiotic to nourish beneficial gut bacteria. Inulin naturally occurs in oats, so using rolled oats in this recipe instead of oat milk ensures that this fiber is present. According to the Australian Food Composition Database, 20 grams of oats contain 0.08 grams of inulin.
