I won't star this because I haven't made it yet, but to the chef who said oat bran has wheat in it - you are incorrect. WHEAT bran has wheat in it, oat bran has GLUTEN which is a different thing. People allergic to wheat may still tolerate gluten in forms of spelt, Kamut and oats but can't eat the wheat berry itself. Celiacs cannot eat anything wih gluten including barley, spelt, most oats, and Kamut.
??? just wondering how its wheat free, oat bran has wheat in it....
