Gluten Free Cranberry and Hazlenut Biscotti Recipe

November 30th, 2012 by Lois Parker

gluten free cranberry hazlenut biscottiThese hazlenut biscotti have a warm, complex flavour with a lighter texture than my usual biscotti.  They have a hint of cinnamon but if you want a spicier flavour just add more spice, perhaps with mixed spice or ginger as well as the cinnamon.  If you like an iced biscotti, making a glace icing with icing sugar and ginger wine would work well.

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

November 26th, 2012 by Christie Bessinger

Everyone loves Chocolate Chip Cookies! Now you can enjoy some that are not only Gluten-Free, but GRAIN-FREE as well. Almond Flour is high in protein, and a good source of magnesium and vitamin E. I hope you love these as much as I do!

 

I adapted this recipe from The Wannabe Chef  Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe:

Big Lots Surprises With Lots of Gluten-Free Products

September 6th, 2012 by Trish Deitemeyer

bob's red mill gluten free brownie mixYou expect to find gluten-free food online and in health food stores and big grocery stores, but you never anticipate finding it in your local discount store. I was recently pleasantly surprised to find, among the curling irons and cat food, many GF products in Big Lots, the largest broadline closeout retailer in the U.S.

Big Lots has recently begun carrying several types of Bob’s Red Mill products, most of them gluten-free, and all of them much cheaper than they can be purchased on-line or in a grocery store. I bought Bob’s Gluten-Free Shortbread Cookie Mix and Pizza Crust Mix for 2.90 and a bag of Bob’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread Mix for 3.95. In my regular grocery store, these mixes run from 4.95 – 6.95. Big Lots also carries a few brands of GF pasta, all for under 2.00 per package. And you can always find (more…)

Gluten-Free Chocolate Truffle Cookie Recipe

What makes these gluten-free cookies so good? They are moist and delicious and taste like brownies! But what really sets this recipe apart is the small amount of flour, sugar and butter called for, especially compared to most cookie recipes.

Based on a recipe for "Chocolate Truffle Cookies with Sea Salt" from Ghirardelli Chocolates, our recipe calls for a healthy measure of chopped walnuts and we've omitted the additional sea salt called for in Ghirardelli's original recipe.

After baking be sure to let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for at least 10 minutes before using a spatula to remove them to a wire rack. Place the cooled cookies in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for an extra chewy brownie-like texture and (more…)

Yesterday I mentioned that I was trying something different. I love Elana Amsterdam's recipe for gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, only I make it with coconut oil instead of grapeseed oil and maple syrup (the good stuff!) in lieu of agave because I hate agave. But everything else is the same, unless I sub out a handful of the almond flour for coconut flour. This makes more of a dense, soft cookie that doesn't spread when baked.

I'm the kind of person who usually wants something sweet after dinner, and chocolate should be involved somehow. When I don't have a healthier alternative, I eat junk. I decided to stop buying junk earlier this year, so I make this recipe all the time.

While eating these cookies, I get ideas. Such as, what would they be like as a crust? Could I make them bigger and really thin, then shape/roll them like brandy snaps? How would they do sandwiched together with chocolate ganache or some other kind of filling? And so on.

Instead of just making more chocolate chip cookies, yesterday I decided to see if I could bake the dough as one big rectangle and make bar cookies out of it. (more…)

Gluten-Free Shamrock Sugar Cookie Recipe

March 15th, 2012 by Teri Gruss, MS

Gluten-free shamrock sugar cookies are buttery good, easy to make and a charmin' St. Patrick's Day cookie.

You will need a small (about 3/4-inch diameter) shamrock cookie cutter to use as a stencil on your cookies. If you can't find this type of cookie cutter you can make your own stencil by tracing and cutting a shamrock shape on a plastic kitchen mat (available at most stores in housewares.)

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

For this recipe, you will need:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (more…)

 

Valentine's day is approaching! Instead of spending hours searching for allergy-friendly Valentine's candy for your loved ones, consider offering safer sweets with Lucy’s cookies.

 

If you haven't had the pleasure of tasting them yet, Lucy’s cookies are delicious treats that are gluten-free, vegan, and made without milk, eggs, peanuts or tree nuts, but they taste like "regular" cookies! My favorite thing about Lucy's cookies (beside the great flavor) is the (more…)

Sugar Free & Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

gluten free sugar free chocolate chip cookies

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, however it is suggested that adults should not consume more than 50g per day and 25g for children. I first learned of Isomalt while I was in my Baking and Pastry course at school. I am in no way an expert of working with sugar alternatives but I wanted to give this a try seeing as Bryan’s dad has diabetes and both of my grandfathers (who have now passed away) had diabetes.  We are really trying to cut back out sugar intake this year and when I was sent samples of this I wanted to give it (more…)
