Nairn's Gluten Free Oatmeal Grahams

As gluten free becomes more mainstream, people are seeking options that are not only nutritious, but delicious as well. Nairn’s creates gluten free products that are oat-based, which means they are high in fiber, essential vitamins, minerals and beta-glucans. Oats have been shown to be a quality source of energy as well as promote healthy digestion and lower cholesterol, making them the next big superfood.

Nairn’s treats are bursting with natural flavor and are free of artificial colors. Full of wholegrain Scottish oat goodness, this alternative to gluten will leave you wanting more. That's right, they are a product of Scotland!

Flavors available include:

* Oatmeal Grahams
* Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies
* Stem Ginger Oat Cookies
* Oatmeal Raisin Oat Cookies
* Whole Grain Oat Crackers
Recently I received a box of the Nairn's Gluten Free Oatmeal Grahams to try out for all of you. I admit, I don't have any issues with gluten but my husband does. With that said, since we cook and eat together...I've been trying hard to switch some of our food items over to gluten free options. These cookies come 4-packs to a box so they make a great on-the-go snack. Plus, they are certified gluten free.

First of all...if you are looking for a chewy & moist cookie or snack...this is NOT for you. They are not brick hard but they are crunchy and firm. Hence...I like dunking them in my coffee or hot cocoa because I have a sensitive jaw. My hubby has no chewing problems and loves how crunchy they are! Each serving consists of 2 cookies with that serving consisting of 90 calories with 35 calories of fat. So, I like dunking them and he likes just snacking on them!

Overall, they have a nice taste to them...you can definitely taste the graham flavor and the oatmeal adds a nice texture to the cookie. Finally...these snacks are totally suitable for Vegans too!

Disclosure: Shelly H. received a complimentary package of cookies from Nairn's. No monetary compensation was received. Regardless of receiving a complimentary sample...all opinions, thoughts and words are 100% her own.

As a dunking cookie these sound perfect. I like tomtryngluten-free items to see how they compare with non gluten products even though I do not have a gluten problem.
