Gluten Free Maple Walnut Bars

Gluten-Free Maple Walnut Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

I have been so full all week. Ben and I went on a road trip, hitting Boston, Providence, and New York, and it should come as no surprise that our days were planned largely around our food excursions. We’ve been eating some amazing things, but let’s just say that I feel like my skinny jeans are feeling a little tighter than usual.

One thing that can be tricky about a food trip as someone who has a gluten sensitivity is that it can be very hard to turn down delicious-looking dishes and desserts when everyone else seems to be enjoying them so much. I’m very grateful and lucky that I don’t have Celiac’s, but eating gluten does give me some stomach troubles, so ultimately I have to ask myself whether or not eating the food in question will be worth the tummy ache later on.

And with a food trip? It usually was. Yikes.

I’m on vacation. Thank goodness for vacation.

So far, on our roadtrip, we’ve hit Boston (+Cambridge), Providence, and now we’re in New Haven. It’s so weird to be in all these college towns after applying to and attending college. I feel like I’m three years late to my college campus tour. But these campuses have all been super gorgeous and Ben and I have been eating so much great food. Definitely going to need to cut back a little when we get home…
