A Gluten Free Oat Alternative

Have you tried Certified Gluten Free Oats?
I have and unfortunately I cannot tolerate them. I was surprised by how fast I reacted. It really hit me like a ton of bricks.....3 days of lethargy and un-wellness.

If you can't tolerate GF Oats or do not want to take the risk, I have an alternative. A safe and satisfying one. When I bake cookies, I add Quinoa Flakes (Ancient Harvest Quinoa to be exact) to the recipe. Add as much or as little as you like and you will be awed with the texture. Just like a real oatmeal cookie, minus the unruly side effects.


There is a whole world of recipes that you can add these neat little flakes to. All it takes is creativity and  a little a lot of patience. 


Here is some inspiration for adding Quinoa Flakes to recipes:

  • Cookies
  • Muffins
  • Yogurt
  • Apple Pie
  • Fruit and Nut Bars
  • Crusting Meat
  • Crab Cakes
  • Burgers
  • Stuffing
