20 min. Yeast-Free, Gluten-Free Italian Bread & Easy Mezzetta Olive Tapenade

My favorite holiday memories are of having lots of family and friends over for big meals. I love doing the cooking, preparing holiday recipes, the noise and laughter in the house, and of course, eating the food. I've happily adapted most of my old recipes to gluten-free but I had one more challenge. I was missing crusty chewy   Italian bread that I could make into Crostini! I've always loved warm toasted chewy bites of Italian bread at holiday parties. Topped with Tapenade or made into Bruschetta, they are my favorite appetizers, but I hadn't quite found the right gluten-free flour blend to achieve that wonderful chewiness, until now! I'm so excited to share my NEW 20-minute Gluten-free, Yeast-free, Egg-Free, and Xanthan Gum-Free Italian Bread Rolls with you and did I say, they only take 20 minutes?

 Gluten Free Chia Plus Coconut Granola Cereal Recipe, sugar free

I have to tell you a story. I think you'll relate. I bought a box of Nature's Path Chia Plus Coconut Granola. It was a great price at Aldi and cheaper than I could make it myself...
No, it didn't say gluten free but it looked so good and it was organic. I munched some when I got home (it was so good!) and I had a mild gluten reaction the next day, so I put the box away. I know that was silly, but I'm not perfect!

Not long after that, my sister mentioned how much she loved this cereal and I gave her my box. Then it disappeared from Aldi and she couldn't find it anywhere for a good price! 

So, I made up a recipe for her and now we both get to enjoy it! Of course, it's not exactly the same as the original, but it's pretty darn close.
