Sugar Free & Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

These are mostly sugar-free because I used chocolate chips instead of a sugar-free alternative like carob chips. Substitute carob chips for the chocolate chips and you have yourself some delicious sugar-free cookies. The cookies are made with Isomalt, which is a sugar substitute that is suitable for those who suffer from diabetes. Isomalt also has only half the calories of sugar, ...

The Fabulous Gluten-Free Bean Bake

Bean bakes are the best thing to come my way, foodwise, since I learned that I was not only lactose intolerant and needed to diet but also gluten-sensitive. Seriously. I’ve now made three versions: Lemon Bean “Cheesecake” with Fruit Sauce Cauliflower Bean Bake with Cheese, Dill, and Olive Banana-Coconut Bean Bake   The taste of each isn’t like anything I’ve ...

Gluten-free Buttermilk Biscuit Peach Cobbler Recipe

One of my passions in life is baking, but once I learned I had to go gluten-free, I felt I had lost this ability.  Not only was I horribly mistaken, but gluten-free baking can actually taste better than baking with wheat flour, yes, even better!

Gluten Free Flourless Brownie Recipe

I may have mentioned how much I love the Whole Foods Recipes app a time or two dozen on here. It’s very user friendly and has a great bank of recipes. I particularly like the Flourless Brownies because they’re made with a secret ingredient: black beans. That’s right, you use a can of unsalted black beans (that have been well rinsed and drained) ...

Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies

  gluten free shortbread cookies It’s that time of year again… when you allow yourself to bake with real butter… and lots of it! At first I was planning to make this recipe with margarine (since that’s what I had), but my mom adamantly informed me that shortbread is made with REAL BUTTER, and anything less is sacrilege.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe

This is my first attempt at making any type of pie, but my mom has made this pie recipe dozens of times, so I know it’s good. As with most gluten free pie crusts, you have to press the dough into the pie plate instead of rolling it out. I messed up a bit with this part because I forgot ...

Gluten Free, Low Sugar Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I look forward to the holiday season – visiting family, friends, the exchanging of gifts. And of course there’s the food. When you aren’t hosting your own thanksgiving, it can be stressful to make sure you aren’t getting any gluten in your diet. I had to call my boyfriend’s aunt to make sure that the turkey was okay for me ...

Gluten-free and Vegan Gingersnap Cookies

I loved the idea of gifting my homemade cake stands to friends and families for the holidays. (Thanks everyone!) Thing is – you can’t really give a cake stand to someone without having treats on it, especially if they know that you love to bake. So I tried to figure out what seasonal recipe I could make for the stands that I ...
