Make a Great Fall Snack! Delicious & Gluten free!

Did you know The Country Cupboard has a Gluten-Free section?

Many of you know someone who eats gluten-free or has celiac disease. We have several flour blends and also tapioca starch, potato flour, brown rice flour, almond meal and xanthum gum. Also in our GF section is rice pasta shapes, GF pretzels and sweet potato chips. My GF friend said that the pretzels are the best she’s had. I think they taste fabulous, too. All of our meat and cheese is also gluten free. In honor of all our gluten-free friends, check out our recipe for this week. We’ll be sampling it all next starting Monday.

We’re looking into getting some gluten-free bread, cookies, muffins, bagels, etc., but we are not sure how much interest there is. If you would be interested, please let us know. We are still “new” at gluten-free, so if you have any other suggestions, please let us know.

Roasted Pumpkin Pie Chickpeas allergy-free, vegan (click for a photo)
serves 2
  • 1 15 oz. can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed well – I purchase mine dried and cook them. It’s more cost effective and better for you – but it does take much longer. (dried chickpeas available at The Country Cupboard)
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (available at The Country Cupboard)
  • 1 Tbsp. erythritol (or sugar)
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin butter (available at The Country Cupboard)

1.Preheat oven to 375 F.

2. First, drain and rinse the chickpeas. Dry them off very well with a few paper towels. Do not skip this step. Then place them in a medium bowl.
3. In a small bowl mix together the oil and the pumpkin pie spice. Drizzle over the dried chickpeas, and toss to coat evenly.
4. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread out the chickpeas and bake at 375 F for 20 minutes.
5. Once the time is up, place the chickpeas back into the medium bowl and coat with the sugar and pumpkin butter. Scatter them back onto the baking sheet and continue to bake for 15 minutes.

6. Allow them to cool before eating.
