I love to snack. I have never been good with just breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love grabbing something quick in between meals. Unfortunately, if I don't have something healthy, I end up eating just anything lying around.
Yea, not good.
I have been eating gluten free and oats have not been a problem for me. Thank goodness because I LOVE oats and making oat bars. I've made these several times and we just love them!
Great to have around when you're in that snacking mood!
