As the temperatures are dipping into the single digits in many parts of the country, households are scrambling to come up with warm and delicious breakfasts. In the winter, we want gluten-free breakfasts that not only taste great, but contain wholesome ingredients that fill us up. Gluten-Free Oatmeal is the perfect meal that will keep your belly happy all morning long!
There is a secret ingredient in this oatmeal. I’ll let you in on it – it’s No Sugar Added SunButter. Did you know that SunButter offers a No Sugar Added variety? No Sugar Added SunButter simply contains delicately roasted sunflower seeds and a dash of salt. That’s it – minimal ingredients and maximum sunflower butter taste.
SunButter is a delicious gluten-free treat for people who love sunflower seeds, for those who crave unique new flavors, or for people who can’t eat nuts. All SunButter products are gluten free, non-GMO and free from the top 8 allergens. They are also free from mustard, sulphites, and sesame.
SunButter is made in the USA and processed in a dedicated peanut and tree-nut free facility. The sunflower seeds that are used to make SunButter are grown in a region of the United States where peanuts are not grown – eliminating the risk of cross contamination.
This SunButter gluten-free oatmeal is a quick and easy breakfast that you can whip up on a busy school day morning. Chances are you already have many of the ingredients in your kitchen! This oatmeal will give your child the fuel they need to power through a morning at school. Oatmeal provides a fairly balanced breakfast with both soluble and insoluble fiber, and it is said that those types of fiber can help to stabilize glucose levels and cholesterol. This recipe contains 32g of fiber – all because of the SunButter.
