If you have had reactions to certified oats, then you may not be able to tolerate them at all. The protein is very similar to that of wheat and that's why some people cannot eat them. I tolerate them just fine and there is no rule of thumb on quantity. Whatever amounts you tolerate well, then that's what you can eat. Not very scientific but some things science can't predict. Everyone is different on this matter so you have to go by how you feel after eating them.

Some gluten free oats have a "challenge for toleration" chart on the package. Day one -2 Tablespoons, Day 2 -3 Tablespoons. (as example) Using a gradual increase, you may be able to tolerate them.

Now that is interesting!! Not because I eat rolled oats for breakfast -- can't stand them!!, made me sick as a child -- but because they are such a useful ingredient, especially in my favorite cookies, Anzac biscuits (Aussies and Kiwis used to bake them and send them to soldiers during WWII), and in Karen's crumble topping, and such things. I think I might be brave enough to try that.

A little at a time. I over did it at first and had to try again later. I am glad I did. A little in cookies and occasion breakfast is a nice change once in a while.

Don't eat them won't try since diagnosis. GI actually told me to not even try either. My sister has serious skin issues when she eats oats also.

I ate oats my entire life. My favorite breakfast since I was very small was

Irish steel cut oats, Quaker, whatever was available.

After DX, I waited 2 years before trying them because I had read that was "recommended".

.

My GI doctor said there's no reason not to eat them if I want.

They do not cause me any trouble whatsoever. In fact, they work well for added fiber and protein in my diet.

I eat a 1/2 cup serving a few times a week.

Sometimes, I have them in granola cookies or as a crumble on desserts.

Like anything else, test your tolerance level first and see what happens! Hope it works out for you!.

I found this article by Shelley Case, RD to be very interesting:

Udi makes a delicious Granola. I've been eating it in my yogurt a few times a week with no problem. Its also dairy, soy, and egg free.
