Oats are a terrible trigger food for me - I can't have them in the house. I've been known to destroy boxes of muesli and granola, not to mention flapjacks. They may not be as bad as wheat but for me, personally, they're a disaster.
Oats are often contaminated with gluten since they are usually processed on the same lines as wheat and other grains. Since I am gluten-intolerant, I often react to oats in the same way as wheat, so the contamination must be significant. There are gluten-free oats (processed on separate lines) but who needs any grains anyway?
