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 convenience.  Another wonderful thing is, these are no-bake 
or raw.


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?
