Gluten Free? Whole Foods Is Here To Help

Special thanks to Whole Foods Annapolis for sharing this article with us:
Thanks to a wide range of new gluten-free products like breads, rolled oats, condiments, sauces and more, plus naturally gluten-free alternatives like amaranth, millet and almond flours, it is easier than ever to avoid gluten when you’re cooking and baking. Here is one of our favorite simple recipes for a quick afternoon snack or breakfast on the go.  For more gluten free recipes visit
Cherry Orange Oatmeal Outdoor Bars
·         Natural spray oil for pan
·         3 cups gluten-free rolled oats
·         1/3 cup smooth almond butter
·         1 cup dried sour cherries, or a mix of cherries and raisins
·         1/2 cup orange juice
·         1/3 cup honey
·         1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
·         1/2 teaspoon salt
·         3 egg whites
·         2 tablespoons finely ground flaxseed
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly spray an 8-inch square pan with oil; set aside. Mix together oats, almond butter, cherries, orange juice, honey, nutmeg, salt and egg whites in a bowl; press firmly into pan. Bake until golden brown around the edges, about 35 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes, sprinkle flaxseed over the top, let cool completely, cut into bars and serve.
