SEF, I love them. Next to double chunk Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chips, they are my favorite. However, I do not eat them much anymore. I have cut all sugar out of my diet and feel better for having done it.
There are a lot of brands out there that guarantee gluten free. Still, it depends on how serious your allergy is as to whether you would want to chance it. If you take a lot of Tylenol that will cause you to be gluten sensitive.James Y wrote: ↑Mon Jun 10, 2019 8:13 pmI haven't eaten oatmeal for many years, though I like it. In 2011, I developed a sensitivity to gluten, and while pure oats are supposedly gluten-free, the issue would be possible cross-contamination. However, I have had good experiences with Bob's Red Mill gluten-free brown rice farina and GF corn meal, so I'd like to try out their GF quick cooking oats.
I don't want to discriminate so I buy Hamlyns (Scotland) or McCann's (Ireland). Both good and for the record, I adhere to the same policy regarding whiskey. Mostly in cold weather, I like to cook the oats in vegetable broth and then put them in the crock pot with sauteed onions/garlic, red pepper flakes, paprika and chick peas. After it's cooked for some time, I stir in shredded cheese (your choice). I admit it probably doesn't sound too good, but I love it!JD Spydo wrote: ↑Mon Jun 10, 2019 8:07 pmyeah I like oatmeal especially. I really like the "old fashioned" oatmeal that you have to cook a longer period of time. I do not like those instant or microwave oatmeals at all. For the past few years I refuse to eat anything out of a microwave oven after I learned how they destroy the nutrients in your food. Therefore I use the real oats that you have to cook for a long time. I've used Quaker Old Fashioned Oat Meal, I've also used many other brands including those steel cut oats that you get at health food stores. It seems like the ones you have to cook the longest are the most nutritional of all.
I like to put wildflower honey and real butter in mine. Sometimes I put pure sorghum molasses on them with Half & Half and that is really tasty. I really need to start eating them again. They make a great breakfast and after eating oat meal I don't seem to get hungry for quite a while after I eat them.
I wish some of you would give me good brands of steel cut oats or oat meal in general to try out. I'm not sure if Quaker still has the quality they once had.
