    I have a question about gluten free oats.
    I have a 8 year old that has been on a gluten free, dairy free diet for about 3 years due to asthma. I have still been using oats in his diet because I had read that there was not much if any gluten in oats. But I’m thinking I need to switch to gluten free oats or just take it out completely. My question is does the gluten free oats still cause inflammation in the body? Does quinoa cause inflammation?

    Thanks for your help

      Quinoa is really good nutritious grain, is gluten free and it is full of great benefits. Hope your daugther keep doing well.

    • Christine says:

      ‘Only Oats’ are oats processed separately from wheat, other brands are processed in a facility that also processes wheat/flour. you can get them at the bulk barn and at health food stores.

      Hi Lea,
      No, oats nor quinoa cause inflammation. They are both very healthy carbohydrate sources. :)
      All the best!

    What is Almond Silk? Is it a brand of Almond Milk or Almond Flour? The ca of Organic Punpkin could I use Puree Fresh Pumpkin. For all your Australian Followers…

    • Anna says:

      Hi Nicoll,
      Almond silk is almond milk, any unsweetened brand you have is fine. Sorry for the confusion. Puree fresh pumpkin should work as well. :)
      All the best!

    What else can i use instead of the protein?

    • Anna says:

      You could use more oat flour and may want to add a bit more sweetener since you’re not getting any sweetness from protein powder.

    The ingredients say “1 cup Oat flour or Quinoa”. Is that supposed to be Quinoa flour or straight Quinoa?

    did you use vanilla powder?

    • Anna says:

      You could try different kinds and see which you like best but I would use vanilla first. :)
      All the best!

    I followed the recipe exactly but it just wouldn’t cook. Had to cook it for 2 hours and the inside was still very moist and soft, so I had to throw it away :( Wonder why it didn’t cook properly. Has anyone elses turned out ok?
