Thought I’d jump right in and make a quick post.  Tonight was the first evening this season that I’ve spent in the garden.   I really enjoyed breaking up the clumps of dirt with my hands. I was amazed that this little activity could be so therapeutic. As the clumps of dirt broke down,  I sifted through the clumps in my mind that needed breaking down. After a few hours, I felt so peaceful. Gardening is wonderful  medicine for our soul. Give it a try.

1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

1-1/4 c. gluten free flour mix
1/2 tsp. gluten free baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
2 c.  gluten free crisp rice cereal or gluten free millet puffs
1-1/3 c. flaked coconut

1 cup chopped pitted dates (I use raisins)

Cream butter, brown sugar, and  granulated sugar. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir together dry ingredients. Stir into creamed mixture. Stir in crisp rice/millet, coconut and dates. Form into 1 inch balls, place 2 ” apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 350 until lightly browned. About 10 min. Cool. Enjoy.
