Once I got home, I started to regret my decision to splurge $10 on 6 rolls, knowing that I'd built them up too much in my head. I was going to wait for breakfast today, but finally gave in and had one for dessert last night. Let me tell you, they were DELICIOUS and when I had them again this morning for breakfast....just as delicious. I usually add pecans and raisins to mine, which this one was missing, but the cinnamon cakey flavor was perfect. I thought the mock cream cheese icing would be a let down, as this pregnancy as turned me into a dairy fiend, but I was pleased all the way around.
This is something I would buy again. It's nice to have cinnamon rolls, in the freezer, ready to eat when I want them. Thank you Cookie MOMsters for another enjoyable, GFCF treat!
* banana, frozen
* pineapple, chopped
* half orange
* Stonyfield Vanilla yogurt
* Tbsp coconut flakes
Toss all ingredients in blender. Blend. Enjoy!

I made some small modifications and these were such a great treat!
3/4 cups rolled gluten free oats
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk (7oz)
1 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cups flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 8 x8 baking dish.
In small bowl, combine oats, peanut butter, butter; mix well. Press mixture into bottom of baking dish. The results may not seem like a crust at all, but it will come together once you cook it.
Layer remaining ingredients in order: chocolate chips, coconut, almonds, and evenly pour condensed milk over top.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Today, at the grocery store, I found Al Fresco Buffalo Style Chicken Sausage and not only were they gluten free, but they were also the same price as the generic brands and they had a $1 off coupon. They were not as spicy as I had hoped for, but they had a nice mild buffalo flavor.

The prices are high, but I didn't expect anything different, after all we all know how expensive gluten free baking is. The quality and convenience of their products were worth the price. The woman running the store was very nice and allowed me to sample a few things before purchasing. I picked up:
* Chex mix (chex, pretzels, and some puffed cheese thing with a soy free soy sauce)
* Half a loaf of bread (8 normal sized slices) $5 and DELICIOUS! It was considerable more than I like to spend on bread, but after getting home and making a sandwich, I would definitely eat less bread in order to be able to afford having really good bread when I want a great sandwich.
* A 6 pack of cinnamon rolls with a mock cream cheese icing $10
* Chocolate chip ice cream sandwich $2.50 (the cookies were soft and extremely tasty, however I was not a fan of the Tempt-Hemp Ice Cream. I would probably buy their cookie dough and make my own ice cream sandwiches in the future)I look forward to going back in the future to try their other cookies, muffins, and maybe even some of their pre-made entrees.
