Baked Pumpkin Crunch Oatmeal *Book Review The Baking Beauties*


I was so thrilled to get my hands on the new book, The Everything Guide to Living Gluten-Free and read all of the wonderful content.  The author, Jeanine Friesen from The Baking Beauties did such an amazing job of explaining all the important aspects of living gluten-free.  This book is so well written and informative and it’s a great resource for anyone who is thinking about going gluten-free or someone who has been gluten-free for years.

Jeanine also provides 100 recipes as well, and when I saw the Baked Pumpkin Crunch Oatmeal, I knew I’d have to make this for my family.  And boy was I right, it was delicious.  I had to make a second batch right away.  The only thing I added was a little ground flax seed.  You know I looooooooove my flax!  Oh and I made this the night before so all I had to do was pop in in the oven in the morning.  Perfect.

    I made this last weekend and we really enjoyed it. I only had whole flax seeds but they worked fine (I tried to grind them in the food processor but they’re so tiny it didn’t really work). I will definitely make it again!
