Though summer time is usually the season people consider for food picnics and outings, fall is certainly my personal favorite. I really like the heat of Indian Summer time and also the seasonally-themed outings that include it.
A lot of our family favorites are apple picking, visiting the local pumpkin patch as well as an annual Pig Roast at our CSA farm (Cure Organic Farm) that celebrates the bounty from the harvest and also the crest of year because it relaxes toward the awesome weather several weeks.
As goes our Colorado fall weather, we’ve gone from being bathed in beautiful fall light and heat eventually to the first snow, and also the commitment of temperatures within the 70’s again a few days ago. Versatility is type in our neck from the forest however i feel getting fun, periodic menu options prepared for anything is essential.
Anticipating our fall outings I created a transportable dessert which i find pretty charming: Little Apple Oat Cakes inside a Jar. The great factor about being gluten-free is the fact that I’ve met a lot of new flour types. I don’t love all of them, I’ll be candid, as virtually anything that's a grain, bean or nut may become (and it has become) a flour. Many are very eco-friendly tasting in my experience in a manner that fights having a modest desserty baked good. Oat flour is a I really like. It features a little more texture than standard potato starch/tapioca starch/grain flour blends (though I personally use individuals too frequently) and a few light flavor. I don’t need to use a binder like xanthan gum either.
These little cakes are super moist and flavored with apple when i incorporated both applesauce and finely chopped fresh Honeycrisp apples. I sprinkled the tops with Organic Honey Granules that are like adding sprinkles of pure honey. They melt in to the top a little but nonetheless then add texture and honey flavor once the little cakes are finished baking. Lastly we're able to not resist trying them out along with some homemade Pumpkin-Salted Caramel frozen treats. It had been an ideal fall addition.

I understand after i obtain the gluten-free oatmeal it particularly must state that for it to become GF. could it be exactly the same way w/ flour also? If that's the case, where would you get yours when i never view it inside a store around here. I'm able to only find bob’s red mill oat flour after i really will find it that's. Or organization your personal? thanks.
Hi Jacquie. The package of oat flour ought to be marked as Gluten-free otherwise I'd assume it's not. You will find both gluten-free and gluten oat flours, Bob’s Red Mill really makes both from the quick scan from the internet. When I comprehend it oatmeal themselves don’t have gluten however the conditions that they grow introduces it (maybe they're a protective cover crop for wheat or something like that) so always choose gluten-free for oatmeal.
I made use of Bob’s Red Mill with this recipe and acquired it at Lucky’s Market in North Boulder. I’m sure you can order it on the internet too from Bob’s Red Mill or Amazon . com.com. Hope that can help!
