I made this for Father's Day and what a big hit it was. A delicious gluten-free treat for a hot summer day. I use Kinnikinick "oreo" cookies and gluten free maraschino cherries. Works great with oreos and maraschino cherries for those who can eat wheat. I made my own chocolate frosting but gluten free chocolate frosting is easy to find in the supermarket.
A nice light summer pasta salad for those nights when you don't have a lot of time or desire to spend over your stove. Plus it's delicious and a great way to get those omega fats that are so good for you.
Because of wheat allergies, I use quinoa pasta. This recipe would work well with any kind of pasta.
I use Enjoy Life chocolate chips. For a nut free chip, you can also try Vermont Nut Free Chocolates. Earth Balance works for a dairy free option.
Make sure the cookies are small. I use a small melon baller which I fill level. Bigger cookies will spread.
Fluffy on the inside crunchy on the outside. Use sweetened dried cranberries if you want something without the "tang". Best with maple syrup or (any sweet you prefer). Serve with sausage and eggs for a nice brunch or casual winter supper. Or tofu scramble for the vegetarian in you.
We love our sweets but unfortunately with diabetes in the family desserts can be problematic. This is a reduced calorie version of an old fashioned favorite. Bob's sells certified gluten free oats for those who are on a gluten free diet but can eat oats. This is a loose crisp that can be spooned , hot, over vanilla ice cream.
A sweet, rich cookie loaded with chocolate and butterscotch chips. Enjoy Life makes a great allergen-free chocolate chip that you can get at Whole Foods. Bob's has gluten free oatmeal. Substitute Earth Balance for the butter if you can't have dairy.
