Gluten Free Banana Drunk Macaroons

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 Read More »

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Mini-Muffin Recipe

Gluten free chocolate chip zucchini mini muffinsZucchini is a veggie that you can easily add to just about anything, and that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing with it. Grated, it makes a wonderful “raw” pasta substitute, I love it lightly stir-fried with other veggies, it’s delicious sauteed and added to salads, omelets, or whatever else is cooking, and then of course there’s always zucchini bread. My grandmother used to make it every summer. She would bake it in loaves, and then sandwich softened cream cheese between thin slices. It tasted like cake, and I suppose it practically was the way she made it. YUM.

I started looking online for gluten free zucchini bread recipes, and I came across some zucchini mini muffins with chocolate chips over on Elana’s Pantry. I love that website, and I have her Gluten Free Almond Flour cookbook, which I use regularly. She now also has a Gluten-Free Cupcakes book, which is now on my wish list, if anyone is feeling generous.

But I digress. Here is the original Gluten Free Zucchini Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins recipe, and the only things I changed were my typical substitutions using Read More »

Gluten Free Chocolate Genoise Cake Recipe

Fothergill_Amy_SF_CA

Often times, when baking gluten free items, a small substitution is needed. However, if you don’t bake a lot, some recipes can be a bit complex. It’s best to follow a good recipe and make sure to make it once before you decide to make it for a big party.

genoise_cakeChocolate genoise cake can be used to make any type of jelly roll cake but it’s especially popular around the holidays to make a yule log. Creating a gluten free version requires only a few changes. Always make sure the other ingredients are gluten free like the cocoa. For the best flavor, use a local cocoa powder like Ghirardelli. It gives the cake a great flavor. Read More »

Gluten Free Christmas Fruit Cake Recipe

Erin Emms gluten free works

Fruit Cake seems to be one of those things that you either love, or you hate. Personally I also find them really hard to bake and not have them dry out, so this year was a double challenge to make the perfect gluten free fruit cake without it drying out. Like most recipes it’s a personal taste on what you’d like to add, obviously if you have a nut allergy you can exclude those. If you like your cake frosted with frosting you can also do that too.

Enjoy!

It’s texture is wonderful and very similar to banana bread. Read More »
