GlutenFree Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with Honey

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with Honey

Anything containing oatmeal and raisins is usually among the all-time favorites in my house, and these muffins are no exception. So, I made several batches of them and experimented a little with the sweetener. These Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with honey are what we like the best. In fact, a not-to-be-disclosed family member declared that these were absolutely delicious!

I like that the honey is a little better for us than the more traditional granulated cane sugar or brown sugar that is in many of my other muffin recipes.

Three Gluten-Free Lunches

It’s really hard to keep making lunches and snacks that are interesting even under the best of circumstances.

Plus, the vending machines at work or school have a siren song that almost always sounds better than a lunchbox’s boring old tune.

When the need to be gluten-free is added, lunches can seem even more challenging.

Gluten Free Avocado, Black Bean and Bacon Omelet

Gluten Free Avocado, Black Bean and Bacon Omelet

This eye-appealing omelet is topped with bacon and filled with an avocado and black bean combination that’s full of different textures and flavors. It’s easy enough to cook for breakfast, but it would be ideal also for a lunch or even dinner. Most of the time when I cook an omelet for my family, they ask for cheese in it, but no one missed it in this one.

Not only is this nutrient- and protein-packed dish gluten-free, it’s also dairy-free.

The avocado and black bean filling is more like a salad around which the omelet is wrapped. It isn’t the kind of filling that cooks in the omelet. Neither is the bacon cooked in the omelet. I added it as a topper. However, if you want, you can add optional ingredients such as cheese or diced ham while cooking the eggs, although I didn’t add either of these this time.
