These treats are easy to make and easy on the belly.

About the Activities

Just about everyone loves delicious baked goods, but some people are allergic to the standard gluten-based flours used in most recipes. These simple alternatives from Kristin Osika, the 2021 4-H Youth-in-Action Winner, leave out the gluten but pack all of the scrumptious taste. Plus, they’re easy and fun for kids—or anyone else—to make.
