Gluten Free Stovetop Recipes
I love to bake but no one wants to bake every day. Stovetop recipes are usually easier and quicker than baking and probably don’t involve flour. If that’s not enough here are three more reasons these Eatmore bars are perfect for late night cravings.
- It’s too hot to bake.
- You don’t feel like baking.
- Someone needs a treat and the kids are old enough to use the stove unsupervised. Yeah!
The reward will be ready to eat by the time the clean up is done. Sometimes that’s just the motivation you need.
Treats vs Snacks
Everyone wants to eat healthy but labels are confusing, advertising is compelling and we’re all busy. Over time the line between snacks and treats has been blurred. The gluten free diet makes you examine everything you eat but I’d argue we all need healthy snacks and treats.
A gluten free diet is hard enough so no matter who eats gluten free look for treats everyone will love. Lean toward recipes that are naturally gluten free and fun to make. Once kids (and adults) learn to have fun in the kitchen they’ll eventually move toward cooking with real food. Make eating healthy and healthier a life long project and it will serve you well.
