Oatmeal Product Reviews

So, oatmeal is one of those iffy grains for gluten-free people, but if you buy the certified gluten-free oats, you can have wonderful comfort foods using them, like meatloaf or even just oatmeal for breakfast...its amazing how you take those little things for granted.  Well, I've been trying a few things and having my little one try them as well.  So, now I can review some oatmeal products for you.

First up is Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats. I love them!  It's oatmeal, plan and simple.  If you want oat flour, grind them, they are as versitile as oatmeal is and my son still gets his oatmeal once a week for breakfast.  Of course, we have to add plenty of brown sugar too it, and I actually pulse it once or twice in the blender to break it up a little before cooking it...but still, we have oatmeal! It's a bit pricy, you'll probably pay between $5-$6, but it is so nice to have on hand!

Rating: 10 out of 10! For the fact that we have regular oats that are certified gluten-free.

Next up is Glutenfreeda Instant Oatmeal: Apple Cinnamon with Flax. (I also bought the Banana Maple with Flax, but haven't tried it yet).  Another great investment, I love to open a packet of instant oatmeal, add water and microwave.  It was really good on top of that, excellent, excellent product. I got mine on sale for $3.80 and one box contains 6 packets.  It's a little bit more expensive than you're Quaker oatmeal, but not by that much.

Rating: 10 out of 10 It's ease of use...I can send a packet with my son to Day Care, it makes my life so much easier and it tastes good on top of that!
