Judee was my Secret Recipe Club pick for June and she runs a Gluten Free Blog called Gluten Free A-Z. I had only made one other gluten free dessert before for a coworker’s baby shower so I was excited to try this recipe out! Strawberries are so delicious right now
As soon as I saw these on Judee’s blog – I knew I had to try them. They looked so simple and delicious. I have been enjoying one with my coffee in the morning!

Did you know?
Gluten is a protein that can be found in wheat, barley, rye, and some other grains. About 1% of Americans cannot eat foods that contain gluten, and it seems as though this number is on the rise. When these people eat foods that have gluten, their immune systems respond by damaging the lining of the small intestine. This is called celiac disease. Most nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine so this can cause nutrient deficiencies.
