Gluten-Free Almond, Oat, Goji snacks

If you are like me and seem to be always on the go, it helps to have healthy, tasty, and portable snacks on hand. I rarely leave home without a few of my homemade Almond Goji Treats in my purse. They are nutty, a little bit sweet, and extremely satisfying.

Over this past summer, I got hooked on hiking. Of course, when you are living in a place where all you have to do is walk out your front door and be enveloped in the verdant alpine glory of Park City, Utah this is something that can happen quite easily. My family and I relocated to what I deem to be a slice of heaven for a good part of our summer. I think the only days that I didn’t hike the trails were the ones when it was pouring rain. But there is another reason that I became so addicted to hiking and movement in general. I bought a Fitbit.

Gluten-free digestive biscuits

I have had a love for English digestive biscuits since I have been a child. These biscuits which are really just grain based shortbread-like cookies are traditionally served with tea or cheese and wine as part of a savory dessert. As I do my very best to adhere to a gluten-free diet, the only way that I was going to be able to enjoy this favorite treat was to create a recipe of my own. Cravings are a great motivator and this recipe is a real winner.
