Gluten Free Cranberry And Oats Flapjack Bars And An Easy Peasy Cupcake Selection

Gluten Free Cranberry And Oats Flapjack Bars And An Easy Peasy Cupcake Selection.

Happy Tuesday. We did not venture out too far over the weekend. The amount of snow we had was ridiculous. Who would have thought it was more or less Spring?! Our weekend back up plan, then was to stay indoors and do some gluten-free baking.

{You may already know, but if not my Daughter has just recently been diagnosed with the Coeliac Disease}.

She finds that a lot of the gluten-free treat recipes in the shop are not as nice as the ones that she is used to eating with gluten. I have tried to make some of her favourite treats gluten-free. Read on for the results.

Gluten-free cakes and treats are crazy expensive in the shops too. So experimenting with homemade recipes is worth a go. I have yet to find a bargain in the treat aisle which is Gluten free.

She finds home baked cakes and biscuits a lot nicer.

Over the weekend we made lots of her favourite recipes and experimented with how to make them gluten-free.

We made traditional pancakes, which we found to be a lot thinner consistency. However with extra cooking time still turned out the same. Oat pancakes were a lot thicker and she said she thought they were both tasty.

We also made yummy flapjacks for lunch box treats and some cupcakes too. We found out that using gluten-free products in our baking turned out almost the same. So I was well chuffed with that. Result!

Yummy homemade cakes and biscuits 1 point. Shop bought cakes and biscuits 0 points ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ha!

I can now make her yummy lunchbox treats in bulk on Sunday knowing they will last the week out. More importantly, She enjoys the taste, She doesn’t feel left out and I save a few quid on the Gluten Free cake shop prices.

Here are the gluten-free recipe version but you can make the same recipe up with rolled oats and margarine of your choice if you do not need to be gluten-free.

All these recipes are bursting with flavour thanks to Ocean Sprayยฎ who sent us some of their tasty Ocean Sprayยฎ Whole Berry™ To Review earlier last week. Thankfully I managed to nip out before the snow arrived to buy some more as we drank the first 2 cartons straight away.

Firstly we made some flapjacks. Perfect for lunch box treats.
