While I was at the Celiac Awareness Tour’s stop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I got the chance to meet some really nice vendors. Many of the product representatives truly wanted me to try their products because they loved them and thought they should be known more widespread. I received samples of two different types of gluten-free oatmeal. Today I’m going to review the sample from Bakery on Main.
Most people don’t realize that oatmeal and oats are in a grey area for people who have gluten intolerance. For those who have Celiac’s, it’s a no-brainer: most oatmeals are processed with wheat, and they are out of the question. But for people like myself who only have a gluten intolerance, I’m still wary of normal oatmeal.
Here is Bakery on Main’s description of this product, found on their website:
“Say hello to happy mornings! Make your taste buds happy with the sweet flavor of pure maple syrup and make your body happy with a healthy multigrain blend of certified gluten free oats, amaranth and quinoa.”
Let’s see how it does…
Product Review: Bakery on Main Maple Multigrain Muffin Instant Oatmeal
How does it look?
The product came in a stable package and was easily opened. The oatmeal looked like, well, oatmeal.
How does it cook?
The oatmeal cooked like the instant oatmeal pre-gluten intolerance. I boiled water and it was easy to stir and allow to thicken.
How does it taste?
All I can say is wow. I tried this and was shocked by its complete sweetness. I added strawberries and chia seeds and had an absolutely perfect meal. I immediately began to research where to buy this oatmeal while it was still hot in my bowl.
It’s certified gluten-free, it tastes delicious, and it’s easy to make.
Seriously, I’d eat this as a dessert. 5/5
