Gluten-Free “Very Easy” Crepe Recipe

Sometimes I can be intimidated to cook certain foods, especially new gluten-free dishes. For some reason, I thought crepes would be similar to going into the chem lab. I’m happy to report it can be made just as easily as regular ones! But, my theory behind knowing how to cook, regardless of whether it’s gluten-free or not, holds true. Technique is very important.

The recipe I used was from Gluten-Free Gobsmacked. I really like her simplicity and explanation of each step. See below for my version and additional instructions. Either way, great product.

I can’t wait for my little girl to try them. She made some in camp this week but could only eat a bite as it was made with regular flour. While at camp, she also had a hamburger bun because she thought it was gluten-free; a bit of miscommunication. Poor thing was so itchy last night, it made me sad. Her gluten sensitivity comes out in her skin. I suppose it is this that motivates me to try things. Read More »

Skillet or griddle.

Process

Blend dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.  Stir in eggs, oil, vinegar, applesauce and water just until mixed.

Gluten-Free Banana Flax Bread Recipe

Gluten Free Works Author Teri Gruss

Our Guide to Low Carb Diets Laura Dolson explains that “While flax is not technically a grain, it has a similar vitamin and mineral profile to grains, while the amount of fiber, antioxidants, and Omega 3 fatty acids in flax leaves grains in the dust.”

All good reasons to add naturally gluten-free flax to your diet! Our recipe for gluten-free banana flax bread is deliciously moist, has all the flavor of our original gluten-free banana bread even though 25% of the gluten-free flour blend has been replaced with freshly ground flax.

Gluten-Free Berry Cornbread Muffin Recipe

Jenny Manseau Gluten Free Works

For me breakfast is the hardest meal of the day. For starters, I get up at 4:00 am and I just can’t eat that early, so I normally take something with me and eat it on my way to campus. My breakfasts usually consist of a Greek yogurt or a scone that I have baked.  This is also the only meal that I get jealous of people without celiac disease, because they could eat just about anything they wanted for breakfast. We with celiac do not have the convenience of stopping at Starbucks (which we have two on campus) to grab something quick to eat.

Making eggs, or pancakes in the morning is just not an option.  It would take too long, can’t really eat it on the go, and I would take the risk of making too Read More »

Gluten-free Buckwheat Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes Recipe

So yummy, and healthy too!

Despite the name, buckwheat is not wheat, it is actually  a pseudocereal, in the same category as amaranth and quinoa, and a great way for non-gluten eaters to get fiber and whole grain into our diet.

Buckwheat is commonly used as a staple in the cuisines of Japan (soba noodles), Korea, Northern Italy, Eastern Europe (kasha), and Western France (savory crepes)*.

This recipe is a great alternative to regular buttermilk pancakes and gives it a healthy spin and an earthy flavor. Read More »

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits Recipe

Kim Bouldin Gluten Free Works

Guess what I was doing the other day?  Browsing Twitter!  Imagine that?   I was instantly drawn to these Easy Cinnamon Muffins that Jo-Lynne shared.  I knew that Jon would love them, so I pre-heated my oven and got down to work.

IMG_0080

Jo-Lynne’s recipe is not gluten-free, so I converted it to be gluten-free using Gluten-Free Bisquick.  Since the GF Bisquick already has leavening & salt in it, I omitted the baking powder & salt in her recipe.  Hindsight says that this may have not been the wisest choice, but the end result was fantastic, so I am not too worried about it.  Adding the Read More »
