Going gluten free means never having that chewy, soft pillowy substance of real honest to goodness bread. There are many, many substitutes out there and some that come almost close but it will never be bread. This in my opinion, is just something we have to learn to live without and move on to new tastes and textures.  Gluten free eating is not a "diet" and not a "fad", it is a way of life for many of us.  Though I don't have Celiac, I am gluten intolerant, extremely so as is my sister and brother.  Every once in awhile I do say screw it and have a slice of pizza or that yummy hot bread that some restaurants serve.  If I take an antacid before hand, the effects won't be as bad, still bad but tolerable.  I've done this less and less over the years. I don't call it "cheating" because I don't think of being gluten free as "on a diet".  
Now with my little rant over, there are alternatives to those items we have left behind.  These are muffins that I make in the microwave when I want to make a breakfast sandwich.  The one made with the Pamela's is much better for a sandwich but both are good when I just want some toast with peanut butter or jam on it. The one made with Oat flour is denser and sweeter while the one with Pamela's is lighter. Both toast up just fine and the only way I will eat them.
