Gluten Free-zer Friday – Crunchy Chickpeas

by angelaskitchen on January 28, 2011

I have had to put off this week’s Girl Scout Cookie adaption off until tomorrow.  I somehow ran out of a GF flour, so tomorrow I will post the next cookie (trefoils – squee!!).  That means Hot Chocolate Cupcakes will be posted on Sunday.

It seems like everyone on the web is gearing up for game day snacks.  For my post on this, see “game day snacky ideas” for some gluten and dairy free inspiration.

Head over to MJ’s for Freezer Food Friday. Then, if you have a GF recipe to share that freezes well, come on back and join in on the fun!
