Gluten-Free Nuts & Snacks for the Holidays — Menu Plan December 28

By · Print This Post Print This Post

HolidaySnacksThe Gluten-Free Menu Swap finishes off the month with one more roundup of Gluten-Free Holiday Food Gift ideas. This week, the theme is Gluten-Free Nuts & Snacks.

Just because Christmas is over, doesn’t mean that you can’t still give gifts to friends and neighbors. Make it a gift to celebrate the New Year!

Nuts and Snacks are great to give as holiday gifts or hostess gifts. They are pretty quick and easy to mix up, and they last longer than baked goods. Place them in a nice jar or dish to present as a gift, or just bag it up with a nice bow.

They are also great to serve at Holiday parties, New Year celebrations, Superbowl parties, Cocktail parties, etc. Of course, if you’re giving nuts, I suggest you check to make sure the recipient doesn’t have nut allergies.

I love extending the holiday season a bit! After the main hullabaloo, one can take some time and remember others as you say. 🙂 Lots of great links, Heather! Thanks so much for sharing my Sweet and Crunchy Snack Mix.

Happy New Year!

I do want to come back and add a comment that I personally don’t feel that “gluten-free” Cheerios are safe for anyone who eats gluten free for health reasons. Even after the recall, many are still getting ill from eating them. Now that the Lucky Charms–which are also made of oat flour from mainstream oats, not purity protocol oats–are appearing on shelves, the same thing is happening with them. I know folks have to make their own judgments, but I’m not sure that everyone is aware of the concerns.

Shirley — Thanks for your input. I know there are many people who can’t eat oats at all. The celiacs at my house haven’t experienced any problems with gluten-free oats, including Cheerios.
