Easy-Gluten-Free-Banana-Peanut-Butter-Muffins

Easy Gluten-Free Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

These easy gluten-free banana peanut butter muffins are quick to make and have for breakfast or snacks without a lot of fuss and bother, and, to make it even better, they taste great.

The other day I baked some of these for an easy breakfast and enjoyed two of them right away. Then I unexpectedly found I had to take a family member to the doctor immediately.

That trip took a lot longer than I expected. About half-way through waiting for our turn to see a doctor, I realized I should have taken a couple of these muffins with me. They would have packed easily into my purse and they would have made a terrific snack!

Tolerant Organic Red Lentil Rotini Salad with Cauliflower, Peppers & Tomato

Tolerant Organic Red Lentil Rotini Salad with Cauliflower, Peppers & Tomato

I discovered a new brand of rotini with good flavor and lots of nutrition.

I was interested in this new product from Tolerant when I saw that it is made solely of lentils – Non-GMO Organic Red Lentils… Nothing else.

That makes it gluten-free and also free of the top eight allergens. This low-glycemic rotini is certified gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, vegan and kosher.

Since it is made from red lentils, it has a delicate pink tint that is lovely and appetizing whether in a salad with greens and dressing or in a skillet with peppers, onion and sauce.

Hamburger with Horseradish Sauce

Gluten-Free Hamburger with Dill Sauce for a Great Cookout!

Are you ready for a great cookout this weekend? I look forward to a gluten-free hamburger with all the trimmings throughout the year, but I enjoy them even more when we can grill them outside.

Gluten-free hamburgers are just as easy as any other kind, as long as the grill is clean when you start.

Gluten-Free-Oatmeal-Applesauce-Snack-Cake

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.

You can put one of these sandwiches together in 10 minutes or less for a quick and easy meal.
