Are oats gluten-free or not?

One last recommendation: if you are looking for a fully gluten-free Vegan Baked Oats recipe, be aware of which type of oat you choose to buy. Indeed, oats are a naturally gluten-free grain. However, they are often contaminated with gluten because they may be processed in the same facilities as gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye, and barley. Therefore, make sure to buy gluten-free oats, especially if you are celiac or allergic to gluten.

Strawberries

Look for strawberries that are firm and with fresh-looking caps. Make sure that they have a bright red and no green spots. You can use your nose to check if they are fresh and ripe enough: they should have a nice and pleasant smell!
