Bob's Red Mill gluten-free "oatmeal"

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Giving this two thumbs up!!  I like this!  It's very smooth and creamy.  In the past I've used Quaker Quick Oats and traditional oats, usually make it with milk and add in some craisins.  I like Bob's much better!!!  I made it with 1/2 water, 1/2 milk today just to see how it worked out.  The hardest meal for me is going to be breakfast because I typically have either cereal with fruit or oatmeal and with the limited gluten-free cereal choices the lack of variety is going to be an issue.  I'm not an egg fan.  I did get some gluten-free waffles but I haven't tried them yet because syrup has too many calories for my temporary diet.

I love oatmeal but it's just too much for my body to deal with. I tried it a few weeks ago and It made me very tired and made me stumble all over like I had been glutened.

SMRI, waffles are really good with other toppings other than syrup. I make whole grain gluten free waffles on a regular basis and serve them with unsweetened applesauce, peanut butter, fruit juice sweetened jam, butter, and fresh berries. (like raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, etc.)

True..but I like them with syrup. :D  I could heat up some jam and use that though too.

:(  There are some people who can never handle oats, but many are able to add them back in after a period of good healing.  I would wait about 6 months and try again, with caution.

It's so funny to me, looking back I could eat hot peppers all the time with no problem, but every time I ate oatmeal (pre celiac dx) it would give me heartburn without fail!

The kids across the street put flavored yogurts on their waffles. Some people make sandwiches with them - like ham and cheese or ice cream. :)

Well, that may be a warning sign for the future!  LOL!  Hot foods don't give me a problem unless I eat them with a lot of fat or acidic foods, which is how a lot of things come, doh!

Blessed,

Those waffles sound amazing. I am so going to try those tomorrow, as I have a recipe for  a gluten-free waffles. I am thinking applesauce on them would be  sweet, never thought of that one before.

I make mine with certified gluten free oats and whatever other configuration of ingredients I have on hand. Sometimes I put garbanzo beans in them, sometimes eggs, sometimes cashews. Often flax seed, for the extra omega 3. 

 

Just a general reminder for any newbies reading this thread, be sure to buy a new waffle iron after DX. Waffle irons are very, very difficult to clean thoroughly if they've been used on gluten waffles.

I have recently gotten into millet for breakfast. It is easier to cook overnight in a crock pot. Loaded with protein, fiber and low fat. I feel like its pretty cheap too because 1/4 cup is a serving which cooks up into 1 cup. I treated it like oatmeal and added some sugar and cinnamon, it satisfied my want for oatmeal in the morning but didn't give me heartburn, fatigue and ataxia *thumbs up* Really filled me up and kept me full.

 

My family and friends are starting to label me as the weird eater, then they try my food and are deliciously surprised.
