Simply Delicious

This simply delicious breakfast might seem ordinary to most, but to a celiac who has been unable to eat oats since diagnosis ten years before, the discovery of certfied gluten-free oats is a real treat! The recipe is simple: 2 cups water brought to a boil, then the addition of 1 cups of raw oats. Simmer until tender and liquid is absorbed. Served with a sprinkle of cinnamon, a dab of sweet stevia, some sliced banana, and a dash of cold soymilk --- it's just about like eating dessert after living for so long without! Appreciating the simple things of life takes on new meaning. If you too are required to live gluten-free and would like a source of delicious gluten-free oats, a link is here.


  1. I like the bowl and plate in the picture. Bob.

  2. Well, I'm not a huge fan of oatmeal unless we're talking the highly sweetened, full of preservatives and calories, instant kind.

    But, I'm happy for you!!


  3. I'm with you. Keep the health first and primary. There are some oats that are raw cut out there. Yummy!

  4. Hi LaDonna~
    Thanks for visiting our blog, and posting your comments. Also, many thanks for adding a link to Rosemary's Sampler. My sister and I appreciate it.


  5. Sounds delicious! Thanks for the post!

  6. We eat Oatmeal nearly every morning and I must confess that I didn't know it was off limits to celiacs. Hmm, I learned something new. (kind of a good thing to know with the extended family)

  7. Can you believe I never had oatmeal until I was in college, and I thought it was delicious - so that looks fantastic to me!

    So glad you made that discovery - so nice to enjoy things once lost.

  8. We love the old-fashioned oats for breakfast. I always thought it was the healthy thing for everone to eat, I didn't know it was off-limits to celiacs either. Interesting.
