I have a lot of close friends and family who are on gluten-free diets. This means that I am always on the look out for yummy, gluten free snacks that are inexpensive, easy to make and, most importantly, taste great.
Like a lot of people I assumed that gluten was only found in bread products – but I was surprised to learn that trace amounts of gluten can be found in everything from pickles to coffee. Because gluten is found in SO MANY food items these days, I am always reading labels to make sure that I am not serving any gluten containing foods to the wrong people. And when I was in the cereal aisle last week I was truly excited to see that Chex are gluten free – because this meant that I could count on my favorite recipe for Muddy Buddies whenever we need a snack for our gluten free friends.
