When we discovered that my daughter was allergic to wheat I assumed that we would no longer be able to eat oatmeal, which would be tough for us. Oatmeal is a staple in our house especially during the winter months. Our kids love it topped with cinnamon, raisins and a little brown sugar. Oatmeal is messy with little kids but it goes down easy and it isn’t very labor intensive to make especially on a cold winter morning.
Fortunately for us we discovered Bob’s Red Mill GLUTEN FREE Old Fashioned Rolled Oats. It’s a fantastic product and our family highly recommends it.

The modern oat draws its ancestry from the wild red oat, a plant originating in Asia. Oats have been cultivated for two thousand years in various regions throughout the world. Before being consumed as a food, oats were used for medicinal purposes, a use for which they are still honored. The growing of oats in Europe was widespread, and oats constituted an important commercial crop since they were a dietary staple for the people of many countries including Scotland, Great Britain, Germany and the Scandinavian countries. In the early 17th century, Scottish settlers brought oats to North America. Today, the largest commercial producers of oats include the Russian Federation, the United States, Germany, Poland and Finland.
Scores of studies have documented the many health benefits of oats. Eating oats helps lower LDL “bad” cholesterol and may help reduce the risk of heart disease. Oats help you feel fuller longer, which helps control your weight. Oatmeal and oats may help lower blood pressure. Oats may help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, since their soluble fiber helps control blood sugar. Oats are high in beta-glucans, a kind of starch that stimulates the immune system. Oats are higher in protein and healthy fats, and lower in carbohydrates than most other whole grains. They contain more soluble fiber than any other grain. Oats contain more than 20 unique polyphenols called avenanthramides, which have strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-itching activity. They also have the best amino acid balance of all the cereal grains.
Gluten Free Quick Cooking Oats make a delicious and healthy “instant oatmeal” alternative to the little packets other brands offer (those being loaded with preservatives and sugar). Add in extras like chia seeds, flaxseed meal, dried fruit, nuts, seeds—whatever ingredients you love in your oatmeal! Mix with steaming hot water and microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes, let stand for another 2 minutes and you’ve got a healthy and easy breakfast ready to go
Please be aware that a small percentage of people cannot tolerate even the purest of oats. If you are unsure whether oats are suitable for your diet, please check first with your health advisor before eating them.
