I don’t have anything against gluten – as far as I know, my insides happily accept the stuff, but please, don’t hate my guts for it. I was born this way. Some people have a gluten intolerance or are basically horribly allergic to the stuff. That sucks. Some people also just eat gluten-free for the health benefits, of which I’ve researched literally none, but I’m sure there have to be many.
Coming to us today is a recipe from Marie of Lady Ace Kitchen. If you can conjure up the picture of health, it would probably be Lady Ace, or possibly Lady Ace’s baby, cause when I found myself in the deep rabbit hole of all her awesome videos the other day, the first one I watched was how to make your own baby food using natural ingredients. That is one lucky tot.
Anyhow Lady Ace features a shit ton of Gluten-Free and Vegan/Vegetarian recipes on her blog. If you are into that kind of thing (like me, on January 2), then you should pop on over and peruse. In the meantime you’re getting a taste of what you mind find over there with her Gluten Free Cranberry Oat Bars. They look super awesome, and you can’t even see they’re missing the gluten ;)
