Oats are naturally gluten-free. They don’t contain gluten in their natural form. Oats help restore and calm the nervous system, lower cholesterol and regulate weight and is the ideal ingredients for breakfast. Eating oats porridge in the morning can be really boring and so “dressing up” the porridge will not only make it interesting and palatable but also add other nutrients to your breakfast. Perhaps you should try having your oats with coconut milk! However, if you are using coconut milk, refrain from using citrus or sour fruits as these may curdle the coconut milk.
