Notes

*To make gluten free: make sure to use oats that are specifically gluten free, as well as that all other ingredients are gluten free. Not all brands are gluten free or free from the possibility of cross contamination.
*When avoiding anything is your baking for health purposes, always make sure that YOU verify that YOUR ingredients are safe and meet your particular dietary requirements. Also, if you are baking for someone else with food allergies, sensitivities or special diets, make sure to consult with them (or their parent) regarding ingredients to verify if everything is "safe". Food allergies are not to be messed with, and it is always better to check and double check versus assume. To state the obvious, I am not a doctor, and this is not medical advice. :)
