Gluten Free Oatmeal Honey Scones

I LOVE having something hearty & healthy for breakfast.  I found a recipe for “Oatmeal Honey Scones” at http://www.thehealthychef.com/2011/09/oatmeal-honey-scones/ (Note that the author is from Australia-so the oven temperature is C, so bake for 20 minutes at 350 F.)

Gluten Free Rosemary Almond crackers

I recently attended the Gluten Free and Allergen Expo in San Francisco.  I got to sample so many new gluten free products, and there are some fabulous ones! My friend, Mark Berger was there with his gluten free treats, The Goods (http://TheGoods-GF.com).  One of my favorite goodies was called Kettle Krakkers, rosemary (http://kettelkrakkers.com/products/rosemary/) they are awesome! The best cracker I’ve ever tasted!!

I thought it would be fun to make my own. I found a Rosemary Almond Cracker recipe at http://www.rawmazing.com/rosemary-almond-crackers-two-ways/

And this is how they turned out:

They are really quite tasty, but not as thin as Kettle Krakkers.

Reduced cost of healthy foods!

I am so fortunate to live in a town where I have multiple options to purchase locally grown, organic produce; gluten free products and healthy supplements, however, the cost of these things can really add up.  I just discovered an online store that sells the products I use, at a substantial savings!  It’s called “Vitacost”-
