Gluten Free Oatmeal Coconut Squares Overview.

Or, we LOVE oatmeal coconut squares! Whatever the reason, these vegan squares are a great choice!

Each square is made primarily with whole grain certified gluten free oats. The recipe includes other ingredients like coconut, dried fruit, nuts, and seeds to create delicious and nutritious squares for breakfast or snacks.

Why must celiacs eat only certified gluten free oats?

Oats are often processed on the same equipment as other gluten-containing grains. This creates a risk of cross-contamination with gluten.

Oats without a label stating that they are certified gluten free are not considered safe for those who have celiac disease.

How to Prepare and Store oatmeal squares

Preparing these gluten free oatmeal squares is pretty straightforward.

If you have a food processor, you only need about ten minutes to prepare the dough for baking. The entire recipe is made in the food processor.

If you don’t have a food processor use a magic bullet or a blender to prepare the oats. The oats are partially processed to create a smaller flake, then mixed with the remaining ingredients to create a dough.

The dough is spread in a square baking pan and baked before cutting into squares.

the flavor,

For flavor, the squares are made with raisins and unsweetened coconut. You can also add good-quality chocolate chips for extra deliciousness.

The fat used in this vegan recipe is coconut oil. The shredded coconut and coconut oil create a good balance of oats and coconut flavor in these healthy gluten free squares.

The squares are also made with almonds for extra protein, texture, and heartiness. The entire gluten free recipe is made with ten nutrient-rich ingredients keeping the squares healthy.
