Unfortunately for this celiac, oats and my gluten-shredded intestines haven't gotten back on talking terms since my diagnosis. For a while, I was riding the quinoa flake train, but I abandoned those in a desperate jump to stop the unexplainable itching that hit me a few months ago. What's an oat-cravin' gal to do? Buy packs of Bob Mills' rice and buckwheat flakes and hope for the best! For a little while, I was dancing the Goldilocks. Just rice was too thin; buckwheat alone tasted a bit too nutty. And then my taste buds landed on the perfectly thick, chewy, no-oat oatmeal! Having a bowl of this magic to look forward to makes my early college class schedule a little easier to swallow (food pun, of course, intended).

  • Ingredients: 2 TBSP buckwheat flakes
    2 TBSP rice flakes
    1/2 mashed banana
    1-2 TBSP chia seeds for extra thickness and satiety
    Preferred amount of water (I like my oatmeal really thick, so I usually pour just enough to submerge all my ingredients. One tip: add the water and wait a few minutes to see how much the chia seeds expand, then add more water as needed!)
    Optional: spices like cinnamon, nut meg, pumpkin spice, cacao, maca, vanilla extract, etc.
    Choice of toppings: banana, berries, granola, trail mix, nut or seed butter, dried fruit, etc.
  • Instructions: Simply mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

    Then, pop your oat-less oats in the microwave for a total of 2 minutes.

    Personally, I microwave the bowl for one minute with just the base. Then, put on your toppings and microwave for another minute to make everything a pool of melted yum!
