Here is what one customer had to say about our Only Oats Cinnamon Spice Muffin Mix:
Just a note to say that I really enjoy your products very much. A friend of mine introduced me to Only Oats products last year. Since then I have tried your Cinnamon Spice Muffins, Decadent Chocolate Muffins and Pancake Mix. Each of these mixes is easy to use, has only a few healthy ingredients in the package and they taste delicious. I usually like to make things from scratch, but with your products I have been purchasing the mixes and find they taste better than homemade "scratch" baking.
I have been adding grated carrots to the Cinnamon Spice Muffin mix and they taste moist and keep well refrigerated for a week or so.
Thanks for manufacturing and selling such great products. I have told many of my friends about your products and several are purchasing and enjoying your Only Oats products too.
Keep up the great work!!
Here is more feedback on our Only Oats Decadent Chocolate Muffin Mix:
Just wanted to say I love your gluten free products and recently bought the Only Oats Decadent Chocolate Muffin Mix. I doubled the recipe and didn’t want to use 8 eggs so I substituted 4 eggs with 1 cup of a puree mixture of some frozen mixed berries, 1/2 banana, 1 pear. I also substituted 1 cup of mix for Only Oats oatmeal, added about 3/4 cup of raisins and 3/4 cup of cashew pieces. I cut the water down to 1/2 amount. The muffins came out absolutely delicious and moist, didn’t taste like a gluten free product at all. I will continue to use your gluten free products and also try variations of the mixes. I love cooking and experimenting with recipes. Thank you for putting out a good gluten free product...there’s so many bad ones out there!
January is National Oatmeal Month! Coincidentally, it is also National Fiber Month. Which makes sense, as oats are an excellent source of fiber.
Simply said, oats are high in fiber. There are two types of fiber and you need both… Insoluble fiber, the type that doesn’t dissolve in water and is found in vegetables, bran and whole grains, helps keep you regular and prevents constipation. While soluble fiber, the type that dissolves in water and is found in beans, oats, flax and nuts, helps lower blood cholesterol levels and may help regulate blood sugar levels. As a whole grain, oats contain both insoluble and soluble fiber.
New Research published in Nutrients 2013 followed 106 Finnish celiac patients for eight years. Two-thirds of the subjects ate oats on a regular basis. The oat consumers suffered no damage to small-bowel villi, inflammation or gastrointestinal symptoms. Click here for the article: http://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/5/11/4380
Long-Term Consumption of Oats in Adult Celiac Disease Patients. Nutrients. 2013; 5(11):4380-4389. Kaukinen K, Collin P, Huhtala H, Mäki M.
Abstract: Many celiac disease patients tolerate oats, but limited data are available on its long-term consumption. This was evaluated in the present study, focusing on small-bowel mucosal histology and gastrointestinal symptoms in celiac adults maintaining a strict gluten-free diet with or without oats. Altogether 106 long-term treated celiac adults were enrolled for this cross-sectional follow-up study. Daily consumption of oats and fiber was assessed, and small-bowel mucosal morphology and densities of CD3+, αβ+ and γσ+ intraepithelial lymphocytes determined. Gastrointestinal symptoms were assessed by a validated Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale questionnaire. Seventy (66%) out of the 106 treated celiac disease patients had consumed a median of 20 g of oats (range 1–100 g) per day for up to eight years; all consumed oat products bought from general stores. Daily intake and long-term consumption of oats did not result in small-bowel mucosal villous damage, inflammation, or gastrointestinal symptoms. Oat-consumers had a significantly higher daily intake of fiber than those who did not use oats. Two thirds of celiac disease patients preferred to use oats in their daily diet. Even long-term ingestion of oats had no harmful effects.
