You can make almond meal, or coconut porridge, there are some instant paleo porridge ready to go grain free ones....you can also use Miracle Rice blended in to give it oatmeal texture. If you miss flap jacks look up coconut flour ones if you want a mix look up Simple Mills Pancakes mix it is grain free and if you need sugar free also look up Julian Bakery Pancake mix. Need Links?
Thanks for all the replies everyone - its very useful to have the support, particularly as my gp today said 'a tiny but if gluten three times won't cause an upst stomach for weeks'
I just wanted to print off the entire forum for him to read!!
I'm not sure what your symptoms are when you are cc'd but if you are suffering from pain and D, and you are newly diagnosed, it could just be that your system is still healing and you are finding it hard to deal with this type of fibre.
I was unable to eat lentils for a very long time after my diagnosis - it brought back the same sort of burning pain that affected me when I was still eating gluten. Now I can eat lentils.
However, I'm still unable to eat pure oats, sad to report, which bring back that burning epigastric pain. I wish it were the other way round, I miss flapjack and porridge!
