    This recipe comes to us from Rosemarie Menassas.

    1 ¾ cups quinoa flakes (or quick cooking rolled oats if you include oats in your diet)

    ½ to ¾ cup cold butter
    ¼ teaspoon baking soda
    ¾ to 1 cup brown sugar

    Mix all of the above together till butter is all worked in and pat half of the mixture into a nine inch cake pan.

    Meanwhile: Add 2 cups chopped dates, no pits, ½ cup white sugar, 1 cup water and 1 tablespoon lemon juice to a medium saucepan and cook slowly stirring to prevent burning till mixture is thickened. Cool the mixture.

    Now pour the date filling over the mixture in the pan. Then add the remaining topping mixture and pat slightly. Bake at 350F for about 45 minutes or till golden on top. Cut in squares when cool.

    Way too much dry mix! Tastes good but the top dusts off. I would advise using 1 cup quinoa flakes and 1 cup gluten free flour mix.

    Celiac.com's Founder and CEO, Scott was diagnosed with celiac disease  in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    Here's a recipe for gluten-free cookie clusters. They’re delicious as a dessert, but depending on how much of a sweet-tooth you have, they could even serve as a good breakfast snack/pastry! One of the things I like about this is that the recipe comes from a naturopathic dietician who has been able to work the "Konsyl Original" fiber supplement directly into the recipe itself.
