    • 2½ cups gluten-free rolled oats
    • ½ cup raw almond meal
    • ½ cup flax seed
    • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
    • ⅓ cup sesame seeds
    • ½ cup blanched cashews, chopped
    • ⅓ cup slivered almonds, loosely chopped
    • ⅓ cup canola oil
    • 4 tablespoons honey
    • 4 tablespoons molasses
    • ⅓ cup mixed dried fruit
    • ⅓ cup raisins
    • ⅓ cup dried coconut
    • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
    • dash of cinnamon

    Heat oven to 300°F.

    Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

    Add the canola oil, honey, and molasses in that order; this helps the honey and molasses pour more easily.

    Stir until well combined and all the dry ingredients are coated.

    Spread the granola on a baking sheet with a spatula

    Pack more tightly for granola with clusters

    Keep baking and stir every 10 minutes until the granola is golden brown—about 30–35 minutes.

    Remove the pan from the oven and stir in the dried fruit and raisins.

    Allow the granola to cool. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

    Here is a fancy twist to the ever popular rice crispy treats. Using gluten-free ingredients, and adding in some chocolate and peanut butter, this is a dessert that you will have to hide from gluten eaters. Sure to be a hit, these chocolatey peanut-butter crispy rice treats are a yummy snack that you can add to your kids lunches,  take on an outing or freeze for a later date.

    This is one of my favorite desserts to make; it’s so fun to cook and serve. The sauce becomes incredibly aromatic as it cooks down. As simple, yet exotic desserts go, it’s a perfect way to top off a meal with flair. I usually poach peaches or pears in wine, but the rosemary in this recipe does something magical with the peach, I didn’t want to hide it behind the wine.

    Exactly @Scott Adams  In my six years as a celiac and being quite curious looking into celiac related issues it's quite clear that the there is a wide range of disagreements among the many celiac organizations. IMO, there are too many ...
    The fact that we have several "major" support groups/centers in the USA is an issue itself, as they don't agree on everything and have a long history of strong disagreement on many things, so I would not wait around for them to make any decisions...
    It's not an attack, simply, at this point it's wasting my time responding to posts that say "the studies aren't clear" when they are. You may have an argument if we haven't had one done on celiacs to measure how many reactions would be avoided...
