Indie Candy, The Funky Muffin Bakery, and Gluten Free Birmingham would love for you to join us for a gluten free cupcake social for the kids.  It is not often that our gluten free kids get to go places and not have to worry about the food that will be there.  I have a celiac child myself and I know those feelings.  Together we want to celebrate these kids and let them know that they are special!  So, we hope that you will come join the fun tomorrow. 

If you plan to come, please RSVP here so we have enough

Kind Bars and Granola Review


Have you ever had Kind granola?  Oh my are you missing out if you haven't!  I don't typically buy oats and foods that contain oats because my daughter cannot eat it, even gluten free.  I do believe this has made my weekly grocery list!  My other kids can eat oats and it has been amazing to watch them ask for this for breakfast and snacks!   This granola is absolutely amazing!  Oh and we also put it on our ice cream!! 

Kind Granola flavors are:

  Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters
Vanilla Blueberry Clusters with Flax Seeds
Cinnamon Oat Clusters with Flax Seeds
Maple Walnut Clusters with Chia & Quinoa
Dark Chocolate & Cranberry Clusters
Oats & Honey Clusters with Toasted Coconut

We got to try the Cinnamon oat clusters with flax seeds and the dark chocolate and cranberry clusters.  It was a tough decision on which was best, but we really enjoyed the cinnamon oat clusters.  We would eat it straight up in a bowl with almond milk, or my favorite, on top of greek yogurt with fresh fruit.  This makes a great snack, or meal!  I love that it is so fresh and not processed.

We also got to try what seemed like every flavor Kind makes of the granola bars!  Our favorites were:  Dark chocolate nuts and sea salt, Fruit and nuts in yogurt, Fruit and nut delight, and peanut butter dark chocolate.  There was not one that we didn't like, we just liked these the best. 

  Some of the things that attract me to Kind bars:

They taste amazing and make a great snack leaving you feeling satisfied

They are 100% gluten free

Non GMO (yay!)


Low in sugar

High in fiber

High in protein (I love this for my little athletes who need a protein packed snack bar after their practices)

Kind bars are pretty much sold in any health food store, grocery stores, and online.  If your family can eat nuts, I would invite you to give Kind bars a try!  Let us know how you like them!

Disclosure:  Kind sent me a box of granola bars to try and some bags of granola in order to do a review of their product.  As always, thoughts and opinions are all my own.

Amazon has a great deal on gluten free Bisquick when you subscribe and save!  They also have a $3.00 coupon you can use at checkout.  So, you choose subscribe and save for $11.91/3 boxes, check out and your $3.00 coupon comes off your total making this $8.91/3 boxes or $2.97 a box!  I had some sort of reward credit and my total came to $0 so I ordered another 3 boxes and still had some reward so my total came to $3.30!  So, 6 boxes of gluten free Bisquick for $3.30.  Now that's a deal!
