Gluten Free Coconut Granola

Posted in Gluten Free

If you’ve ever priced gluten free granola at the store, you know it can get pretty pricey which is a problem if you have someone in your family who really likes granola. When you have several people who like granola, you end up using granola as a garnish rather than as the main breakfast dish because it’s just too expensive.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Nut Muffins

Posted in Gluten Free, and Homemaking

For some reason, I was craving something pumpkin yesterday, so I decided to make some pumpkin muffins. Knowing that muffins make a quick and easy on-the-go breakfast, I went ahead and made a double batch, so I could freeze some for later.
