Avoid Sticker Shock - Make Your Own GF Crackers

By October 14, 2009

Follow me on:

Do you experience sticker shock when you buy gluten-free crackers? I did the math on the per pound cost of a popular gluten-free cracker product and discovered that they cost almost $20 per pound! Does it make sense to pay this much for a product made with cheap, highly refined, high carbohydrate starches? NO!

There's one way to save money and improve the nutritional quality of your gluten-free diet- make your own homemade gluten-free convenience foods!

Making your own gluten free flour mixes, crackers, pizza crusts, waffles, cookies, muffins and gluten free bread are just the beginning of ways you can save money on a gluten-free diet.

Start saving on your GF food costs- try these recipes for Gluten-Free Cheese Crackers and Gluten-Free Herb Crackers. Unlike packaged crackers, these crisp gluten-free crackers are free of preservatives, made with nutritious ingredients, like amaranth flour and almond meal and cost substantially less than commercial, packaged products.
