Some people can handle oats while not being able to handle gluten/wheat so you'll have to try it out for yourself and see if it affects you. Banana Bread is made of wheat so if you're avoiding wheat, you'll want to be avoiding all breads(aside from those blah overpriced gluten-free things).

Banana bread also has sugars, eggs and fats - don't just look to stopping wheat, stop refined white flour products, and sugar. You can stick with old fashioned oatmeal without adding sugar. Try adding a cut up apple, a few walnuts and some cinnamon. It is very tasty. Ground flaxseed is also a good choice to add. Some can't tolerate any grains, but try and see by eliminating the obvious bad choices.

yeah.. i'd definitely stick with the 'old fashioned' oatmeal as minny suggests, as opposed to instant oatmeal, which breaks me out. i don't have trouble with the old fashioned, slow cooking whole oats.

Yes those are instant.

Those are the ones she's probably talking about. Just the oats with no additional sugars or flavorings.

yep - you're eating the instant, which would likely cause breakouts for me. the 'assorted' varieties are flavored with lotsa sugar, which is definitely a problem for me. check the ingredients.

I buy the 100% oats in bulk form. They are not expensive and are the best you just add water and raisins or apples.

Okay.. so generally when people say to avoid wheats, they mean breads pretty much?

That doesnt include oats, or flax?

When people say wheat, they mean anything that has wheat in it which includes a lot of prepared meals/easy to make meals(ramen, a lot of frozen meals etc.), most breads, cookies, candy bars and the like.

Oats do contain gluten but I don't know if that's a problem for you.

Flax is fine.

Ahh, those MAY have wheat and...well... chances are that they do. ;-)

"wheat" is also known as "flour" unless otherwise specified.

Wheat is also durum, semolina, matza, couscous, bulgur, farina, spelt, and for you vegans...seitan!

So you "bread" lovers want to look for items that say Wheat-Free or Gluten-Free, but bear in mind that Wheat-Free may be usng Spelt (low gluten cousin).

Best wishes
