Today, I'm going to experiment with making some snacks and other things by scratch - and gluten-free. I figure the worst I can make is dog food. Actually, I've had some pretty good results so far by taking traditional recipes and subbing in a mixture of gluten-free flours and starches, along with eggs and xantham gum. It's all hit and miss, but when I get it right, I make sure that I write down what I did so I can repeat the action.
This morning, I had a gluten-free, wheat free, dairy free, cholesterol free snack bar that my son, Evan, got in the mail. By looking at the description, you'd think it was gross. UNTRUE! I loved it! I'm going to try to find these at the store,
If you've found creative ways to eat gluten-free economically, I'd love to hear about it!
