These Raw Vegan Blueberry Bars are amazing… Made from whole grain certified gluten
free oat flour and sweetened with maple syrup and organic blueberry puree. They are
gluten free, dairy free, peanut free, tree nut free, soy free, Vegan, raw and simple to make.
Seriously, they have changed our lives.
I'm excited to officially announce my son has passed his oat food challenge at home!
I can't tell you how exciting this really IS!! This opens up so many more possibilities
for meals and snacks. And it's one less allergen to worry about :-D The thing I'm most
excited for is the extra nutrition. Oats have loads of protein, fiber, zinc and other
essential minerals. Not only is a great for breakfast, oat flour is another great option
for baking gluten free.
He's been enjoying oatmeal for breakfast and sprinkled on top of muffins. I've been
working on a few recipes but honestly I've just begun dreaming up ideas. We have
been without a granola bar for so long that was on of the first things I wanted to make.
Obviously, this is not a granola bar but I have to say, it's pretty awesome. Imagine eating
hot oatmeal a hint of maple syrup and blueberries mixed in. These taste just like that but
with no mess and on the go convenient. Another wonderful thing is, they are no-bake
This is hopefully just the beginning of out growing some food allergies. (fingers crossed)
What about your family? What small but significant success stories do you
have for new food?
