Gluten and Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal

by livingfreelygf

My family is a huge fan of baked oatmeal. I created a recipe for the cookbook, and it is also on the blog of a Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal that is healthy, but tastes like dessert! Recently I was planning to make my Baked Oatmeal, but realized I was out of peanut butter. I have been in a fall mood and thought- let’s make a gluten and dairy free pumpkin spice baked oatmeal! I was amazed with how perfect this healthy pumpkin baked oatmeal recipe turned out on the first try!

I have been trying to get a lot more creative in the kitchen lately. Our budget is super duper tight since moving to California. This state is insanely expensive and we are constantly wondering if this was the right thing to do, but our roots are here and I know that there is a path, we just need to follow it.

We are also battling multiple food sensitives in the Bigler household. Of course gluten is the main contender. My daughter is lactose intolerant and I am sensitive to dairy. My daughter is sensitive to almonds and my son has a mild corn allergy. When the corn allergy showed up in his blood test he was not showing any sign of it. The plan was to monitor it, but not cut it out of his diet.

About 5-6 months ago he started getting red bumps on his elbows. We tried everything to clear it up. A couple of time I had it almost gone, but then it cam back full force and could not get rid of it. I mentioned to my husband maybe it was the corn. We took him to the doctor and she said it was dermatitis. The same thing that was out of control on my arms for over a year before I went gluten free. I decided to evaluate how much corn he was eating.

Holy OMG. Everything he was eating had corn in it, I mean everything. 95% of what you buy gluten free prepackaged has corn in it. The main reason is because starches work great for gluten free foods and corn is cheap. It was in the bread, soup, snacks, French fries, yogurt. Every-single-thing.

So, right now I have him on a corn detox. The plan is remove it and then allow monitored amounts back in and keep the amount that he consumes very low.

With all of this going on I am literally having to bake everything from scratch and that is why I created this healthy pumpkin baked oatmeal. Oatmeal is a grain that we can all tolerate in our house, so I am going to be using it a little bit more.
