Gluten Wise Granola Review: Gluten Free No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake With Triple Berry Granola Crust Recipe #Glutenfree #Cheesecake #GlutenWise

I received a 12oz bag of Chewy Triple Berry Granola at the Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo I attending this past weekend. When I was talking with the very informative representative and he was explaining all the different dishes you could make with Gluten Wise Granola, I have to say I was impressed. I decided to try my hand at making a dessert with the Gluten Wise Triple Berry Granola that all of you can make at home as I’m sharing the recipe with you.

My family did not even realize that the No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake With Triple Berry Granola Crust was Gluten free. The only thing they cared about was if there was going to be another piece for them because they just LOVED it. We will be ordering more granola from Gluten Wise to make more gluten free desserts, parfaits, and so many other good for you dishes as well. If your starting a gluten free diet or have been gluten free your going to love this recipe. It’s also a great way to eat healthier for your family. Your family will not even realize that you changed to Gluten free!

This is the perfect dessert to make in the summer or anytime of year. If your attending a get together and need to bring a dish to pass this would be the perfect dish to bring. You could easily make the cheesecake into a square pan by doubling the recipe and cutting it into squares. Your sure to be asked for the recipe.
  • 2 (8oz) Philadelphia Cream Cheese at room temp
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 Packet of Knox Gelatine
  • 1 Container of Fresh Strawberries
  • 1 Cup Of Boiling Water
  • 1 (12oz) Package of Gluten Wise Triple Berry Granola
  1. You will make your pie crust first in a 9″ round pie pan, just push the granola down into the pan to make your crust
  2. Bake Crust at 350 for 5-8 minutes
  3. In a bowl add your sugar and Knox Gelatine
  4. Boil your 1 cup of water just till it starts to boil then mix in the bowl with the sugar and Knox Gelatine till they are completely dissolved
  5. Add Your Cream cheese to your blender with your Knox Gelatine from bowl and add 8 Fresh Strawberries then blend it till it is smooth, it will turn a pink color from the Strawberries
  6. Pour the ingredients from the blender into your Pie Crust
  7. Place in the fridge for 2 hours and let it chill, until it is set
  8. Cut more fresh Strawberries for on top of your cheesecake and make any design you wish to add garnish to your pie

**Disclosure** I received a 12oz bag to create this dessert but all opinions are my own and my families of how this recipe turned out and the flavor of the Triple Berry Granola.

Tired Of Kids Leaving Their Things Laying Around??? Get Them Picking Up After Themselves!

Are you tired of tripping over the kids toys, them dropping things in the middle of whatever room they are in, or just not cleaning up their rooms??? This is a great way to get the point acrossed that they need to or they become Mom or Dad’s till they are ready to get it back again. At some point they are going to want it back or need it!

Take a plastic Bin and make out strips of paper to put chores on that they can do to get their things they lost back. Make an envelope to stick all the chores in and attach it to the side of your tote. Then make a sign like they have on the side of the tote and your ready to get started.

No more arguing about “Please put this away” just put it in the bin and when they ask for it point to the bin. They will have to choose a chore to get their item back. They will learn quickly to not leave their items around or they are going to get added chores. It’s a great way to teach children to clean up after themself. I am going to be doing this with my son’s, I just LOVE this idea. You can click on the photo to read the note on the tote.

Thanks to Pam & Geri

My Frugal Apple Fritters Recipe

As I posted a few days ago it’s Apple Picking time and besides the posts about Canning Apple Pie in a Jar, Apple Butter and other wonderful Apple Recipes. We LOVE Homemade Apple Fritters. These are very easy to make but are such a wonderful treat. We make them a lot for movie nights.

Apple Fritters

Serves family of 4

You will need:

* A deep Fryer or a frying pan filled with oil half way. (You may need to add more oil as you cook them.) You can use different types of oils with this recipe to go with what your diet needs are.

* Plate with paper towel on it for Draining oil off fritters.

* 6 Apples-Peeled, cored and sliced in wedges

* Your favorite box or Pancake batter mix made for 10 pancakes.

Topping for Fritters:
In a bowl mix Sugar with 2 teaspoons of Cinnamon and set to the side.

You will heat the oil in the deep fryer while making the batter or in the pan. After you make your batter for your pancakes. You will dip the wedge of apple into the batter. Then slowly place it in the oil. When they turn a golden brown, you will turn them over to cook the other side. Take them out of the oil and drain on the paper towel. Then roll them around in the cinnamon sugar while they are still hot. Then place on a clean plate.

When serving the Apple Fritters you can also serve with a Caramel Dip as well if you would like but they are great with just the cinnamon sugar on them.

I usually make them all, give everyone their own bowl of them and then we put the movie of the night on and sit and munch while we watch. The kids LOVE these! It’s something that is different from the normal snacks or treats they get.

How to make a record Into A Bowl

How great are these! If you have someone on your list that loves to entertain, A teen, A Rec Room or really any age this gift would work for. You can make them a set of Record Bowls. The great part is you can make one in about 10 or so minutes! They would make a great a Set for those on your Christmas List. You could make a set for everyone on your Christmas list in a day! Not to mention you can put your own flair on the design you make them into. If you don’t have records you can pick them up at your Local Goodwill, Salvation Army or other stores like them for very reasonable. They will make great snack bowls for movie night. You could also use them to make Gift Baskets with and then put a movie, popcorn and other items into them. The options are endless. Be sure to get different size records if your making them a set, they will go really well together.
