Gluten-Free Oatmeal Applesauce Snack Cake

If you are like we are at my house, everyone is looking for snacks.

Personally, I like snacks that are healthier and good too!

To accomplish that, I usually try to make something with more fiber and less refined sugar so I won’t worry about “health issues” when the “munchies” attack.

The applesauce, oatmeal and raisins in this recipe provide fiber, vitamins and other “health conscious” nutrients. And, to make it sweet, the fructose sugar in the apples and raisins provide a positively lovely, delicate sweetness and aroma. The brown rice syrup adds more sweetness and helps the bars stick together.

This snack cake is easy to make. It works well for snacks, lunch boxes and it even works well with yogurt. Of course, it’s a “no-brainer” to have or serve it with a big glass of milk.

Sweet and spicy, tender and springy gingerbread …it’s a traditional recipe for any time of the year. But, if you dress it up a little with some decorator’s red sugar, it takes on a more festive air.

Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Tart with Gluten-Free Pie Crust

My husband Al loves apple pie!

His mother made apple pie for him for as long as he can remember.

She would often make a single-crust pie with the apples cut in halves and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, then dotted with tiny clumps butter that would melt and flow through the whole pie while it baked in the oven. I remember her pies’ wonderful aroma, texture, and flavor from BGF (Before Gluten-Free) days. I and everyone else in the family absolutely loved her wonderful creations!

My mother-in-law, Mary, sure knew how to bake a pie that vanished and this recipe is no exception. I is a family tradition … Mary called it a Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Tart… and the secret …

Easy Banana Bread Recipe

This easy banana bread recipe has been a favorite of ours for a long time. We like it every season of the year, and we especially like to have some for gluten-free snacks.

It tastes good alone, but it also is great with a flavored spread like apple butter or pumpkin cream. If I cut regular slices from the loaf like you see in the picture, they are so good to eat plain that we often don’t even think of adding something to them before the whole loaf is gone…especially if I leave it where my husband can see it.

Easy Gluten-Free Snacks – Oatmeal Bars with Molasses

Any time of year is my favorite time for gluten-free snacks, but in the summer I like to make things that take less time in the kitchen. These little bars of oatmeal and molasses are so easy to stir together that I don’t even need the mixer. I stir them together, pop the pan in the oven, set the timer and come back later.

These bars are sweet, so you might like them with less sugar than what I’ve called for. When I follow this recipe, my husband will eat them, too. That’s great because then I don’t need to make a separate pan of treats for him.
