Kinnikinnick offers Gluten-Free Panko, Graham, and Cookie Crumbs

Last night, the boys wanted chicken fingers. I little while back, I got some Panko-Style Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free Crumbs. I now knew what I would be making with them.

Kinnikinnick Gluten Free Crumbs - Dairy-free, Nut-free Panko-Style Bread Crumbs and Graham-Style Cracker Crumbs for cooking and baking needs!

Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free Crumbs: Panko Style Bread

My husband is a good ‘ol Southern boy and he has dearly missed his fried chicken since being diagnosed with celiac disease. Well, I don’t typically fry things. Call me a health nut…I don’t care, but I will come up with another alternative to frying any day!  So, breaded baked chicken fingers it is!

Trust me, one bite of these Kinnikinnick gluten-free crumbs and there was no complaining!  Honestly, I have never heard all three of my boys speak so highly of breaded chicken like this! They absolutely loved it. In fact, my husband has already asked me when we are getting more of “those” bread crumbs. The boys had the chicken fingers for leftovers today and even after being microwaved, the bread crumbs were still crispy! I used the directions on the box and it works perfectly. I will definitely be buying these again!

Oven Fried Chicken made with Panko-Style Kinnikinnick Gluten Free Crumbs (dairy-free, nut-free)

Since I don’t eat meat, I decided to use them in some bean burgers for myself. I cooked up a mess of quinoa the other night and was trying to think of something to do with the rest of it. I had made burgers with it before, but they just did not hold up to my standards for a good burger. I hate when they crumble and fall apart. It totally ruins the experience for me. I like a crispy outside and I want the inside to have some texture (not be mush). So, last night I took out my original recipe, changed it up a bit and added the Panko-Style crumbs.

Veggie Sliders made with Panko-Style Kinnikinnick Gluten Free Crumbs (dairy-free, nut-free)

I used chickpeas in the mix and while rummaging through the herbs and spices…I picked turmeric. I love that stuff, especially with chickpeas. The Kinnikinnick gluten free crumbs were the perfect addition!  I made little patties and they were perfect for sliders.  My husband loved them too!  I loved the crisp texture the bread crumbs gave them… perfection.

Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free Crumbs: Graham-Style

After such success with the Panko-style, I decided to try out the Graham-Style Kinnikinnick gluten free crumbs in a dessert.

I blame Jessica at How Sweet It Is for this… Smore’s Brownie!  I followed her directions except, these are gluten and dairy free thanks to the Graham-style cracker crumbs. They are so good!  Here is what I did …

Kinnikinnick Bread Crumb Recipes

Easy Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Smore’s Brownies

Preheat your oven to 350ºF and spray a 10-inch round dish or a 9 x 11-inch baking dish. Mix 1 cup Graham-Style Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free Crumbs with 1 cup melted buttery spread (like Smart Balance or Earth Balance – light is okay) in a bowl until well combined.

Prepare 1 package Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Brownie Mix (or your brownie mix of choice) according to the package directions (I used buttery spread to keep them dairy-free. Spread the brownie batter in the pan and then pour the graham mixture on top. Take a knife and swirl the graham mixture into the brownie mixture. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

After it cooled, I put large marshmallows cut in half on individual servings and broiled them for a couple of minutes until nice a toasty.

The Panko crumbs made some of the best oven-fried chicken that my boys raved about, while the Graham cracker crumbs were the perfect stand-in for a S’mores themed dessert.
