Oh have I got a treat for you today!
I’ve held on to this recipe for months and am wondering why the heck I waited this long to make it. I guess there just isn’t enough time in the day to try each and every single recipe I have pinned, tweeted and Facebooked.
But there will always be enough time for brownies, always. Even if they are months in the Read More »
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.

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. Read More »
Fall 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.

Pumpkin – General Recipes
Zucchini 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 »

I have tended not to use coconut products as my primary cookie eater isn’t really a fan. However, in an aberrant moment I bought several bags of coconut flour in with my order of brown rice flour, so I need to start using it. I also had a jar of Read More »
