Gluten Free Snacking

When you eat a lot of rice and vegetables, you need to eat a little something before bed to keep your stomach from growling in the middle of the night.
My snack of choice is often cereal, with a little granola added for interest.
I recently tried these two versions.

gluten-free-granolasI don’t remember much about the McCabe’s. I picked it up on clearance at Kroger, so I may never see it again.
I liked the Udi’s because it had lots of chunks of fruit and nuts and no flax seed. The no flax seed part rocked. This one I would buy again.
I also had a hankering for brownies, so I made a batch using this recipe. I substituted gluten free baking mix for flour and added a tablespoon of water because the batter was a little thick. I used the first recipe with the chocolate squares. Maybe next time I’ll try the one with cocoa powder.
Just like the wheat version in texture and taste.


Not the best picture, but you get the idea.

I’ve moved away from the recipes with specialty flours and adapt my favorite recipes instead. I don’t have a lot of time to bake and find this easier.
Whatever works.
