Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
1 1/2 cups any variety Bob's Red Mill oats, oat flour, or oat bran
1 cup almond flour*
1 can low sodium garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Add the oats and almond flour to the bowl of a large food processor with the s-blade inserted. Process until a fine powder is formed (about 60 seconds). Add all of the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips and process until smooth and a batter has formed. It will look almost exactly look cookie dough at this point.
Carefully transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Using a cookie scoop, or Tbsp measure, roll the dough into balls, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Enjoy!
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Yield: 30 bites/balls
*The almond flour helps to lower the glycemic index of these treats... meaning it causes less of a spike in blood sugars for people with diabetes. If you don't have any almond flour at home, or don't need to worry about making them diabetes-friendly, you can easily sub an additional 1 - 1 1/4 cup of oats for the almond flour.

No southern Thanksgiving meal is complete without cornbread dressing. And when multiple people in the family have Celiac disease, gluten free cornbread dressing is definitely on the menu! This recipe is based on my grandma’s original recipe, and I’ve adapted it so my husband and other family members can still enjoy it! And yes, it’s dressing. not stuffing . :-)
Gluten Free Chicken Pot Pie
Before my husband was diagnosed with Celiac back in his single days, he lived off of Marie Calendar’s frozen chicken pot pies… yes, I know, not my favorite. So once he had to start eating gluten free, a gluten free chicken pot pie was on my list of things I knew I needed to figure out how to make. I love how easy The gluten free Bob’s Red Mill pie crust mix is and you’ll love the simplicity of the filling in this dish… no canned cream of anything needed!
