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.
