I  received free samples of Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax and Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic from Dare Foods Incorporated mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Dare Foods Incorporated and I am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

Although the cause is unknown, celiac disease (an immune reaction to eating the protein gluten) is four times more common than it was 60 years ago. May is celiac awareness month, an annual event supported by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.  It’s fitting that Dare Foods, in recognition of Celiac Awareness, is sponsoring a  recipe contest challenging the Recipe Reduxers to create tempting gluten free recipes using one of two delicious gluten free cracker varieties: Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax and Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic.Breton Gluten Free US

68810_US_Breton_GlutenFree_HerbGarlic_BB300-5With a background in clinical nutrition, I ‘m accustomed to providing  medical nutritional management for  individuals with a myriad of health conditions requiring food modifications (diet altered to include or exclude certain components). Yes, I have seen a dramatic increase in the number of  gluten free meal plans since I first began my nutrition career!  In addition to educating my patients, I find it equally important to expand their culinary knowledge to include ways to  deliciously prepare meals/snacks tailored to both their health needs and their discriminating tastes. But that’s not all. . . it’s necessary  to incorporate foods that the entire family will enjoy, because nobody dines alone!

That’s why I love the two Breton gluten free cracker varieties. They have a tender-crisp texture and a wholesome flavor that’s appealing to all palates.  Made with arrowroot flour and green lentil flour, free of artifical flavors and colors, they are so tasty you’ll find it hard to believe they are gluten free!

Today I am showcasing the Breton Gluten Free Cracker with Flax  in a delicious and easy to make finger food dessert. Inspired by a  decadent dulce de leche banana cream pie, I created  a single serving version,  gluten free of course.  This sweet, single sized dessert is undeniably adorable, fun to eat, easy to serve and gives everyone a perfect portion. I assembled this batch for my family, arranged them on a vintage serving tray, and watched them dissappear. Proof they are down right delectable!  Please check out the links at the bottom of this post for more delicious ways to use Breton gluten free crackers in  foods that will  please everyone’s palate!
