Only Oats is simply that – only oats. There is no other grain in any of their products. I was honored to test a number of this company’s products. I had no idea oats could be made into so many ready-made mixes without another grain, resulting in our palates being quite surprised and satisfied. I was so pleased we decided to have an Only Oats Give-Away!
The oatmeal cookies were absolutely delicious, light, and not at all overly sweet. The pancakes tasted like a light “whole grain”—yes, sweet wheat—pancake. I have a unique oatmeal cookie recipe sent in to me by a tester using Only Oats as well as a pancake and unusual chocolate chip oat cookie. All extremely delicious!
The Decadent Chocolate Muffin Mix muffins were rich and delicious. The surprising point in their mixes was that they didn’t taste like a “substitute” to the real thing, yet my testers and I agreed they all tasted truly healthy and good. We felt we could eat more and not feel guilty. We only knew we had been missing out on something—truly good tasting oat mixes.
The Quick Oats taste like Quaker Quick Cooking Oats, but with flavor, not cardboard-like and without the need for a load of toppings—healthy, hearty, and flavorful.
The company is located in Canada with a dedicated GF facility. The products go through many stringent steps from the farming all the way to leaving the facility’s doors. The strictest testing is along every channel with each supplier needing to supply a letter of guarantee or certificate of analysis declaring all products to be gluten-free with no other allergen present.
They have well-educated staff in their state-of-the-art allergy-free manufacturing plant, who care about adhering to the gluten-free standards that have been set. Based on what I’m told, we can be guaranteed all oats fall under the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO, US). The R5 ELISA test is used every step of the way. Their oats are proven to be less than 10 ppm!
This company offers every type of oat imaginable, including mixes that are not only delicious but also very nutritious. Their website supplies additional printable recipes as well as videos. The oats are quick to prepare and versatile in many dishes and meals, offering the health benefits of the grain which many celiacs are lacking, such as fiber and oils.
