GF/CF Peanut Butter Cookies!

Time for another recipe!  This weekend, my wife and I were having a friend over, and found ourselves in need of a dessert.  I hate to admit it, but I totally hadn’t even thought about it until about 30 minutes before our friend arrived.  Now, if you’re on the GF/CF diet, desserts can be a little tricky, since desserts are basically sugar, butter, and white flour.

I am often asked if the Gluten and Dairy Free (GF/CF) diet is really necessary.  While that answer really depends on each individual child, in my practice up to 80% of the children I see clearly benefit from removing foods that contain dairy and gluten!
