Welcome to our community.

The oat question is not a simple one.

Commercially grown oats are contaminated with wheat. To consider oats, they must be specially grown and processed to be gluten-free. Even then, a minority of people with celiac disease react to pure oats. Most advise avoiding oats completely during the early stage of recovery, then trying certified gluten-free oats to see if you react.

Some recommend waiting at least 6 months before you eat gluten free oats.

I found in the beginning, even gluten free oats were bothering me. I waited until 4 months gluten free to add gluten free oats back in...and I seem to be handeling them fine now!

I stayed away from oats for several months, then tried a certified gluten-free brand, Bob's Mill. They assure us that their oat fields are nowhere near a wheat field and there is no cross-contamination in their processing. I did fine with it! And now I can make my own granola and love it!
