I have so much nothing to post about that it’s scary

So, I guess I’ll resort to a recipe! (Can the memes be far behind?) If you’re a gluten-eater, keep in mind that most (if not all) gluten-free recipes I post started out containing gluten. For this one, you would switch graham crackers for the rice bran crackers, gluteny flour for the gluten-free flour mix, and skip the xanthan gum.
