Here is a good snack idea that my children enjoy, one has Celiac and one doesn't. I got the recipe from www.clanthompson.com in their cooking section. Hope it helps :)

Fruity Pebble Muffins

Ingredients

2/3 cup of sugar

3 TB. shortening or butter

3 eggs

1 cup of rice flour

1/4 cup corn meal

1/4 cup soy flour (or bean flour)

3/4 tsp. salt

3 tsp. baking powder

3/4 cup milk or water

1 1/2 cups gluten free fruity pebbles type cereal (adjust amount to taste)

Mix sugar and softened butter. Beat in eggs. Mix flours, salt, baking powder together and add to egg mixture alternately with milk. Add fruity pebbles cereal. Put a small pat of butter on the bottom of each muffin tin. Pour batter into tins and sprinkle with a little extra sugar and butter if you like. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Hi, I am 17 and do a lot of cooking and baking! My parents both work so they don't have much time but I really enjoy cooking and baking!

Cookies:

I make cookies almost every week with Gluten Free Pantry's Old Fashioned Cake and Cookie Mix. I either add chocolate chips or coconut to the mix (my fav is coconut!)

Try ordering gluten-free cookies online or get them at a health food store. I have tried many and try new ones all the time! Some are okay, some horrible, and some great! It's really up to you to find ones that you like! That goes for all gluten-free food, including recipes and baking mixes.

Other Snacks:

Fruit

Vegetables and dip

Yogurt

gluten-free crackers with cheese

salsa and chips

chili

rice krispy treats made with gluten-free puffed rice cereal

rice cakes

pizza made with chebe pizza crust

garlic sticks made with chebe mix (www.chebe.com- i use the original mix and add my own spices)

thai kitchen instant noodle soup

and for the good stuff:

Ice cream

French Fries (make your own or McDonalds are fine)

Chips (Frito-Lay has a gluten-free list and I follow it even though some people have issues with cross-contamination)

thats all I can think of but there are many, many more! Just use your imagination! :P

Yea,

the genisoy bars are really good, also break bars from glutano are really good if you like chocolate they are basically a gluten-free KitKat. :D Blue Doritos are gluten-free and those are really good go to frito lay website and they have a gluten-free list of all their chips and dips. I have a lot of fruit also because I really like fruit and it is really good for you.

My mom makes some really good peanut butter cookies that don't have any flour in them. You need:

one egg

one cup of sugar

one cup of peanut butter

You put them on the cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. If you like hershey kisses put one in the middle of each cookie after baking them and you will have your self some really good peanut butter cookies.

Personally I think these cookies are better than the peanut butter cookies with flour!

Who likes pancakes? Well, almost every weekend my dad makes me some pancakes made from corn bread mix. We use Betty Crockers' Golden Corn Muffin and Bread Mix. You just fallow the directions like you are making corn muffins but just add a little more milk than what it says too ( so that it is kinda soupy/ runny). Then you just make them like regular pancakes. ( FYI there is some flour in it just so you know I can say that they don't bother me and hopefully not you!)

Hope you like these!

In response to "JoeMoe"

"some" flour is extremely harmful to a celiac and I hope that you were not mislead by this! If you have celiac you absolutely cannot eat even a TRACE of gluten! Not to scare anyone, but even the slightest bit of gluten will damage your intestines, and over time lead to complications such as anemia, osteoporosis, and even cancer!

If you want good pancakes, try pamela's pancake mix:

I think it is even better than regular pancakes!

You are sure right about the flourless peanut butter cookies, they are really easy to make and good too! I like to add whole peanuts to them sometimes or some gluten-free cereal like Bakery on Main granola.

I don't know if this is the same corn bread mix you are talking about, but this one has wheat flour in it, so it is not gluten-free. I don't think I have found any mainstream cornbread mixes without wheat flour in them. Specialty gluten-free cornbread mixes are ok tho.

Well gummie bears, I just noticed this thread is from 2004! I guess joemoe is long gone by now.

If you haven't tried those cookies yet I highly recommend them! I also flatten them with sugar on the bottom of the cup and then smooth out the kiss on top after it has been on for a minute...mmm....I am actually eating them now :)

Betty crocker makes EXCELLENT gluten-free cake and brownie mix. I'm not a fan of their cookies, but some people are.

Some times I make a trail mix with peanuts, m&m's and popcorn.

Chocolate covered fruit always hits the spot.

Quick pancake mix....I use Betty Crocker gluten-free mix. It's fantastic!
