Gluten-Free Round Up…Seasonal Pumpkin Recipes

gluten-free-pumpkin-recipesFall is here and that means pumpkins are starting to appear on your neighbor's door step and in grocery stores, which is the universal signal to start carving and cooking pumpkin. Why is it most of us tend to cook with pumpkin only around Halloween and Thanksgiving?  Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, fiber and it is low in calories, so we should find ways to work it into our diet throughout the year.

Pumpkin is very versatile to cook with, so it can be used in both sweet and savory recipes.  This Examiner did a little research for gluten-free pumpkin recipes and was amazed at all of the drool-worthy recipes we found.  Listed below are just a fraction of the gluten-free pumpkin recipes available online.

What is your favorite way to cook with pumpkin?

Gluten free Fruity Pebbles Cocoa Pebbles

Last year (almost to the day) I posted a recipe for  Fruity Pebble Treats after I had gotten “glutened” by eating a rice krispy treat – silly me for missing the MALT flavor ingredient (see my post about the new gluten-free Rice Krispies here).  So instead of making the same mistake twice, I followed the advice of one of my readers, Kristi, and made the crispy treats using Fruity Pebbles (I’ve also made them with the cocoa pebbles and both are awesome!).  Before making these I called Post to double-check that these two cereals were in fact gluten-free and was assured that they were gluten-free.  You can check out the original post here.

A few weeks ago I received an e-mail from Post with the following information:

Thought you might be interested in hearing that longtime favorite Post cereals, Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles, are gluten-free and can be enjoyed on their own or in gluten-free treats!

They also generously sent me a box of each the Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles to review.  I decided that I would make something with the Fruity Pebbles because as I found out last year Bryan really really likes the Cocoa Pebbles and pretty much (more…)

Triple Ginger Gluten-free Cake

Not One, Not Two, But Three Types of Ginger!

This delicious gluten-free cake has a warm spicy flavour from its three types of ginger - fresh, crystallised and dried. The flavour improves when the cake is kept for a few days, so it is great as a bake ahead treat.

This recipe is based on the Ginger Butter Cake in Williams-Sonoma "Essentials of baking" p 100.

Gluten Free Banana Drunk Macaroons

July 28th, 2011 by Leanne Vogel

I hadn’t realized it while planning this weeks’ posts, but there is an ongoing theme for many of the recipes this week.

fiber + healthy and happy digestion

I just love fiber, don’t you?

Abusing my body throughout my teenage and early adult years left me with a very broken digestive system.

After going through countless tests, x-rays, medications, hospital visits, acupuncture, massage therapists, and exercises I said enough is enough! And I made a promise to myself that I would (more…)

January 31st, 2011 by Amy Fothergill

Can you tell which is gluten-free??

Once you have been cooking and baking gluten free for a while, making substitutions should become easy. This recipe from Whole Foods originally called for regular flour. By simply using a combination of brown rice flour and tapioca flour, a delicious and satisfying gluten free dessert was born. (more…)

Another very creative recipe from Shirley over at Gluten Free Easily just in time for the warm summer weather and one that will satisfy your sweet tooth.  What this Examiner likes most about this recipe is that it can be modified to be dairy free.  This Examiner is trying desperately to stay away from dairy-based ice cream this summer and now there is the perfect excuse to start experimenting in the kitchen.
