Why You’ll Love Gluten Free Rolled Oats
Oats that are gluten-free? You’re not dreaming, it’s now a real possibility thanks to Bob’s Red Mill. Each 32 oz. bag of these old-fashioned rolled oats has modern protective measures in place to ensure that those with Celiac disease and gluten intolerance can still enjoy morning oatmeal, cookies, shakes, and everything else you can create with this hearty grain.
Each batch is sampled numerous times to ensure the absence of gluten, and advanced color-sorting is used to remove any impurities. The oats are then packaged in a 100 percent gluten-free facility before being shipped to you.
Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Rolled Oats are crafted by hand from pure whole grain oats and contain absolutely no additives—they are free of dairy, cholesterol, dyes, sugars, and preservatives. Each serving has five grams of dietary fiber, seven grams of protein, 15 percent of the daily recommended value of iron, and good amounts of vitamins A, D, and B, making it a substantial part of any wholesome meal.
History of oats
Oats are one of the world’s oldest grains and have been used for thousands of years for food, medicinal, and farming purposes.
Research from Iowa State University claims that oats found their way from Europe, where they have long been a major crop, and were first planted off the coast of Massachusetts during colonial America. In fact, President George Washington had around 580 acres of oats on his land.
In the 1800s, the crop moved towards the Mississippi River, which is where most American oats are grown today.
What's the difference between rolled, steel-cut, and instant oats?
There are three main types of oats. In the beginning stages, raw and unprocessed oats are called groats. How they are processed determines what style of oats will eventually be made. Here are the main differences.
Rolled oats are also commonly called old-fashioned or whole oats. They are groats that are steamed to make them soft and malleable. They are then rolled over with a rolling pin and pressed down to flatten. Once that part is complete, rolled oats are texturized and look like irregularly-shaped ovals.
They cook slightly faster than steel-cut oats and maintain their shape during cooking by absorbing more liquid, which makes them ideal for things like granola bars and oatmeal.
Steel-cut oats are often referred to as Irish or Scottish oats. They are made when the oat groats have been cut up rather than rolled over. As such, steel-cut oats look similar to rice.
They have more of an earthy and toothsome flavor that takes slightly longer to cook than rolled oats. Steel-cut oats are commonly used for things like porridge and stuffing for a turkey dinner. They also make a solid rice alternative. However, because steel-cut oats are so solid, they are less ideal as a replacement for rolled or instant oats.
Instant oats are the most processed of the three styles. That’s because they’ve been pre-cooked then dried out. Once dried, they are rolled and pressed even thinner than rolled oats. One of the benefits is that instant oats cook the fastest, but the trade-off is that they don’t maintain their shape when cooked and frequently come out mushy.
Because they’re both partially prepared the same way, you can use instant oats as a replacement for rolled oats and vice versa.
Health benefits of rolled oats
From the time our parents tried to feed us oatmeal as children, most of us have come to respect oats as a health food. But there’s more to it than just image. Oats, particularly the unprocessed varieties like rolled oats, actually provide a number of important health benefits.
- Good for the heart. Oats naturally contain high levels of fiber, which has been proven to be a tool in lowering cholesterol and helping to prevent heart disease.
- Supports healthy weight. The complex carbohydrates in oats are slowly absorbed into the body and give the sensation of being full over time. That helps stop cravings and leads to less snacking between meals. This phenomenon also helps to stabilize blood sugars and prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
- Assists in controlling blood pressure. Recent studies have found that the consumption of oats may help reduce blood pressure and lessen the risk of hypertension.
- Gives the immune system a boost. Consuming oats may help your immune system fight disease and infections more rapidly. Part of this is due to the fact that rolled oats have antioxidant compounds that prevent the formation of harmful molecules that can lead to a range of diseases.
- Promotes better bone health. Oats are rich in calcium, which helps to strengthen bones and the entire skeletal system.

Good quality, good taste and great price.
Love this for making gluten free and healthy granola.
I absolutely love these oats! The taste is fresh, the oats are filling and there is no slimy residue from gluten. I'm very happy I had ordered three bags because now I want to make my butternut raisin oatmeal cookies!
Best Oatmeal ever
This is the best oatmeal I have ever had since I lef Ireland 56 years ago
- brian mc donald
What can I say? They make great oatmeal porridge, snack bars, cookies, etc. without worrying about the oats being tainted with gluten from other grains. They are processed in a gluten free facility. This is another staple in my kitchen.
Gluten free rolled oats
Great product! Had no issues with my celiac. A (gluten free) cookie recipe was on the back which, I think, has now become my family's favorite cookies!
Awesome price for this item
I normally pay $13.99 for this product in my local store if they stock it. Most of the time I can't even get it here in Green Lake County, WI were health food store are unknown to mankind
Can'f go wrong with Bob's Red Mill products
It may be gluten free but its a great oat meal product.
I love the way these cook up, and eat them nearly daily. They are always and predictably fresh.
Good price on a very good product! My family loves these oats.
My Go-To For Oats
I got diagnosed with Celiac disease two years ago. This was the first kind of gluten free oats I tried, after getting sick on regular oats. They taste like "normal" oats without the effects of gluten! Yay!
A great addition to smoothies!
I have never been a fan of oatmeal. Something about the texture when it's cooked is just hard for me to digest. I don't know any more uses for it but I understand the healthy benefits derived from it.
I purchase many of Bob's Red Mill products and wanted to try the brand's oats. I added a small scoop to my morning smoothie and the combination turned out pasty. There was a slight smokey taste but this is definitely more tolerable than the oatmeal. I can gradually get used to it.

Quality oats and safe for gluten allergies!
These oats are great! After cutting gluten out of our shopping for my husband, we've experienced a lot of changes to our diet and many of the familiar, comforting dishes we're accustomed to have been completely transformed or cut out of our diet indefinitely. Not so with these oats. We both enjoy eating oatmeal and we normally have a bowl for breakfast and share a sweeter bowl for a healthier dessert sometime. It was great to feel safe purchasing these oats knowing it wouldn't trigger my husband's gluten allergy and it was a great source of familiarity and comfort during a time when our entire lifestyle was changing. Oatmeal is such a versatile food, you can make it sweet or savory, you can use it in baking, and you can combine it with other ingredients to make homemade granola. Bob's particular brand is exceptionally satisfying. They're a little thicker, yielding a delicious, chewy mouth-feel and they retain this hearty quality even if you cook it a bit longer. I used to gladly pay almost $7/bag and we would go through them pretty quickly. But after seeing it on Thrive for $5 and some change, this definitely helps us save a good amount of money on this staple food of ours.

Slow Cooker Overnight!
When I have family as overnight guests or during cold winter mornings, I put these oats in my slow cooker with almond milk for an amazing breakfast! When I serve it in the mornings, I add berries and brown sugar! My family loves these!
One of the items that I am not happy about is that the bag is hard to reseal. I wish it had some kind of zipper or Velcro to help keep the oats fresh. When I buy oats again, I might try the steel-cut or whole grain.
- Timothy Malone
A Gluten-free must have!
I used to have oatmeal everyday and then found out I had to cut gluten from my diet. I'm so glad I can have oatmeal again and it tastes even better than before thanks to this product! It makes for delicious granola, oatmeal, and cookies. I definitely recommend this brand of oatmeal for health benefits as well as taste!
These are the best oats out there, hands down!
Yummy, but time-consuming
These are great oats - taste just like oats should! Do not, however, think you can make these in the microwave...that turned into a huge, messy disaster for me (even though I followed the microwave instructions on the bag). They are definitely the type of oats that need tender loving care on the stove. Since I never have time to do that in the morning, I'll make a big batch on Sunday night then reheat portions throughout the weak for breakfast. Not quite as good as fresh that way, but still a good, wholesome breakfast that is also quick!
Safe to eat
I love these rolled oats from Bob's Red Mill. I prefer the quick oats, but only because there is less of a wait for a great bowl of oatmeal.
I love my Bob's oats with cinnamon and just a touch of sugar.
- G. Gardener
Great for breakfast
I love rolled oats and these are roasted to perfection. They are certified gluten free, so I know I can eat them. I use these oats for many things. I have them for breakfast as hot cereal. I mix them in trail mix. I use them in homemade snack bars.
However, my favorite thing to do with them is make oatmeal cookies. They are the best, and you know you can trust any product from Bob's Red Mill.
- Greg O. Rich
This is a very wholesome breakfast food. I really like the Bob's Red Mill rolled oats. They taste much better than any other GF brand out there and even some of the regular rolled oats. This oatmeal is great with blueberries or bananas and are extremely wholesome. I like to eat them, especially on days when I'm going to work out later.
- Steven W.
I have to admit breakfast always has tasted better hot. I like hot cakes, eggs, bacon...But one of the most common hot breakfasts we eat in our house is oatmeal. It is an easy go to and there are so many ways to make it.
I recently found out I needed to go GF and while most oats are mostly GF, many are not made in GF facilities the way these rolled oats are. These have an excellent flavor and I love to make it with cinnamon and light sugar. They taste better than any other brand of rolled oats we have tried in the past.

Great for Breakfast
We gave up on the instant oatmeal varieties in store because they just weren't particularly nutritional and they had a lot of worrying GMO ingredients. My wife and I decided this would be a good idea to try, and we've loved it since. It takes a bit longer to make than the "instant" type, but we can feed all three kids at once, and some of their old sugar-high crashes on the way to school seem to be disappearing. We can get it to cook up in about 10 minutes, and it's enjoyable to mix with maple syrup while adding in some fruits or veggies. The kids have been asking for this by name lately.
Great for muffins and cookies
Yes, we've joined the gluten free revolution! And instead of giving up stuff we loved like oatmeal cookies, I just use Bob's gluten free oats.
I always loved old fashioned rolled oats because they're chunkier and taste the way I remember from when I was a kid. These are great and my kids have no clue there's even a difference.

Dairy and wheat free
I'm not gluten intolerant, but I like a lot of the gluten free products because of how they're made.
I use these oats to make oatmeal, and I add raw coconut flakes for a nice crunch. These are very good and taste lighter than Quaker Oats' version. No added sugar or anything except whole grain oats.
- Delbert Ford
Amazing texture and taste!!!
Started using this product because it is gluten free. Now, even if I wanted to, I wouldn't go back to any other brand. The taste and texture is so much better than the very well known brand we used to use. My husband and I eat it every morning and love it. Cooks up in about 10 minutes. Excellent consistency and tastes good with a few berries and a little brown sugar.
- Nora Duncan
All set for my winter morning oatmeal!
I love a warm, comforting bowl of oatmeal and its health benefits, but I've recently learned I have a wheat allergy. Unfortunately not all oats are gluten-free, and others are contaminated by the equipment they're processed with. I'm so glad to have found these oats. Now I can enjoy my morning oatmeal again. These are a great alternative for anyone on a gluten-free diet.
