In our home, no one drinks coffee on the regular, but we always keep a box of instant in the cupboard for when we have guests over. You can find all the ingredients in a regular grocery store. You can make it gluten free if you choose gluten free oats in the shop. And you can make them completely raw. You’ll find the recipe under.
