There's some fine print here – oats, by themselves, are considered gluten-free. However, many oat and granola manufacturers work with contaminated products that include ingredients like wheat and gluten and therefore can cause cross-contamination. Think of it like this: Would someone with a serious peanut allergy eat cashews manufactured in the same building as peanuts? Probably not.

That's why we recommend making your own homemade gluten-free oatmeal cookies. They'll taste great, keep you feeling good and your house will smell great, too!
