- 1/4 c
- all-natural peanut butter (skippy or jif work nicely)
- 1/4 c
- gfcf semi-sweet chocolate chips (ghiradelli works for us- in the gold pkg)

1Microwave Directions: Combine chips and peanut butter & coconut oil, microwave on high about 1 minute, stir, continue microwaving 30 seconds at a time if not melted yet. Add cinnamon, vanilla, and water or expresso if using and stir!
2We quit using a microwave for health reasons, now we use the double-boiler method, doesn't take that long! Same thing, melt the chips, peanut-butter & coconut oil over boiling water in the top of a double boiler stirring constantly till melted, then add cinnamon, vanilla and water or expresso if using.
3Drizzle over ice cream, fruit, cake brownies, nuts or pretzels. Sooo good!
4A Note about Gluten and Casein Free Ingredients: Since my family began this diet, we have discovered that you always have to read the labels on the foods you buy. This week when shopping I may buy something that is clearly gfcf and next week when I look for the same item I will notice they have changed the ingredient list adding dry milk, or maltodextrin, or some other questionable ingredient. I find that it's best to stick to unprocessed foods whenever possible- make it from scratch. My son is on the autism spectrum, its not the end of the world if he gets a little gluten or casein, while it may ruin his day, it isn't life threatening. I always watch him for symptoms and note the offending food. Please keep this in mind while selecting your ingredients for my GFCF recipes. Happy Careful Shopping! :)
