Granola Breakfast Cookies with Dried Fruit and Crispy Nuts

Granola Breakfast Cookies with Dried Fruit and Crispy Nuts @ Common Sense Homesteading

Cookies for breakfast?  You bet!  I’m not talking about a certain boxed cereal with fluffy little bits that leave you hungry an hour later, I’m talking about chewy, crunchy go anywhere granola cookies with all the stuff you want and none of the stuff you don’t.  These easy granola cookies can be gluten free if you use certified gluten free oats (oats do not naturally contain gluten, but can be cross contaminated).  They are also casein free (when the oats are soaked with vinegar) and soy free.

Pizza Flavored Whole Wheat Sourdough Crackers

Pizza Flavored Whole Wheat Sourdough Crackers @ Common Sense Homesteading

I purchased my Alaska sourdough starter from Cultures for Health  several months ago, and have been happily baking sourdough bread, but I wanted to expand my sourdough repertoire.  Enter GNOWFGLINS’s sourdough e-course.  While I didn’t purchase the entire course, I did purchase the recipe book, and I highly recommend it.  If you are interested in sourdough – buy this book!  The pictures are great and I appreciated the level of detail in the instructions.  It’s wonderful!
