Gluten Free Oh Henry Bars

This year, my strategy for the holidays was to make all my Christmas goodies with gluten, so I wouldn’t be tempted to eat them. Even if the recipe didn’t call for gluten, I’d sprinkle some in there, just to keep me honest.  I resisted almost all things sweet, except for one of my absolute favorites, Oh Henry Bars!

Last year, I couldn’t enjoy them, because I found out that oats contain gluten, which was very disappointing.  This year, however, as I was perusing the gluten free aisle in Safeway, I discovered that my old friend Bob and his trusty Red Mill had been at it again, creating delicious gluten free products for the masses, including Gluten Free Oats.

Usually, when I see a new gluten free product from Bob’s Red Mill, a bright light shines on it and the angels in the heavens sing, but when I saw Bob’s Gluten Free Oats, I had just one thought, “Oh, Henry!  Come to mama!”  Just one more reason I love Bob and his magical Red Mill.
