This is, hands down, the best granola bar recipe I have made in a long time. It is also gluten free and freezable! You can probably tweak this recipe to suit your needs. For one of my children, I would make this without pecans and it would taste just as good!

Ingredients for Gluten Free Granola Bar Recipe

Flax seed

1 c. coconut

8 ozs. mini chocolate chips

6 Tbsp honey

1/2 tsp vanilla

8 Tbsp butter

1 3/4 c. gluten free oats

1 c. oat flour (put a cup of your gluten free oats in a blender and mix well)

3/4 c. brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

dash salt

1 1/3 c. chopped pecans


Mix all together well. I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper to keep it from sticking. Bake in a preheated oven (325) for 25 minutes but you need to turn it every 5 minutes to keep it cooking evenly.  Get out of the oven and cool. Once cooled, put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes (the entire pan). This step helps you to cut the bars without making a mess.

After that 30 minutes, get it out and cut it into bars. I wrapped each bar in plastic wrap and placed each individual bar into a gallon sized baggie. I did this to help keep their shapes. Also, I pack these in my child’s lunch box and didn’t want to make a mess. I kept mine in the freezer to just keep them fresher longer. There really wasn’t a need for that because we ate them pretty quickly.

Gluten-Free Beef Scalloped Potato Casserole

Oh, this Gluten-Free Beef Scalloped Potato Casserole is so good! I have also used a roast that I had cut up and marinated. It was equally as good!

2 pounds ground beef cooked with chopped-up onion and some seasoning.

Once that is cooked up, drain. Add in 1 c. beef broth or vegetable broth. Sprinkle over 2 Tablespoons gluten-free flour. Stir until it is thick.

Place this in a greased 13×9 dish.

Cut up some fresh mushrooms and sprinkle them over top of beef.

Next, cut some kale (can use spinach) and sprinkle it over mushrooms. Add a bit of seasoning.

Grate up some smoked gouda cheese (you can use any cheese, this is just what I had on hand).

Scalloped Potatoes

Take 8 small-medium-sized potatoes. Peel and Wash. Use a mandolin to slice them up very thin. In an instant pot, put potatoes and add enough water to cover the top of the potatoes. I also added 3 tsp. Gluten-free chicken bouillon cubes. Manual for 2 minutes. Quick pressure release and drain.

Layer on top of kale. Add some seasoning and thyme. Place 1 c. milk, 1/2 stick of butter, and the rest of your gouda cheese in a pot. Allow to melt, and then pour over your potatoes.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, then place under the broiler for about 5 minutes to crisp up the cheese.

It was yummy!

Side Note:

I will say that I have made this several times. I have substituted the ground beef for chicken, as well as ham. The recipe was delicious, no matter the meat used. You can also substitute homemade scalloped potatoes for the boxed kind, though that doesn’t do much for me. I try to stay away from processed food as much as possible. You could also sneak in shred-up zucchini or squash for even more nutrients. These items take on the taste of whatever you are cooking.

Screaming Moment

Have you ever had one of those days where you want to run down the road naked, screaming at the top of your lungs? Enter Gluten-Free Chicken and Noodle Soup cause it is my jam. Well, any soup, for that matter. It, quite literally, soothes my soul.

Yep, I had one.

As an illustration, my day started with a butt through a wall.

As well as some nosy Nellies.

Add a splash of liars.



Manual labor.

Saturday in a Nutshell: Fall Recipe

We did, for fun and all, add in some ticks, fits, crap in pants, paint, a mini-remodel (because of the butt issue), and a battle between a tree and a child.

Cause what a Saturday would be without all that fun?

Oh, I forgot that we start school (on the 24th), and I lost ALL my notes, schedules, and curriculum.

So, there’s that.

At 7:30 pm, my sweet (not so much sweet on this day, but a bit salty) H said he was hungry. I forgot to cook :/

I was so busy micromanaging misbehaving kids, working on the bathroom, doing some spot cleaning, and doing schoolwork prep. It just slipped my mind.

So, here is what I threw together because I had nothing else in the house to fix, and we did not want to eat out.

Gluten-Free Chicken and Noodle Soup

One bag of Tyson pre-cooked diced chicken (again, all I had, and it was frozen)

Minced onions


Cream cheese

2 c. Monterey jack cheese

Splash of milk

Rice spaghetti noodles

Broccoli (gotta get those veggies in)

Chicken stock (GF)

I put stock, chicken, seasoning, and minced onions in the instant pot (sniffing up 8 pm) and set it on soup for 12 minutes.

To save time, I started the water for the noodles and cut up the large pieces of broccoli. I also had A shred my cheese because pre-shredded cheese is processed, which is no Bueno.

When the instant pot was done, I quickly released the pressure. I added a splash of milk, the cheese, and then cut-up broccoli. I did turn it back on manual for 2 minutes to soften up the broccoli.

By the time that was done, my noodles were done. I drained them and put them in the soup.


It is finished.

Thank. Goodness.
