A note about gluten-intolerance. My daughter, who is gluten-intolerant, can eat these safely. (That's not to say all gluten-intolerant individuals would have similar results.) The gluten grains are sprouted and dehydrated prior to becoming flour. I also soak and dehydrate the rolled oats ahead of time.
