Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

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

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 Read More »

Review: Lucy’s Gluten Free Cookies – Three New Flavors!

 

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 Read More »

Sugar Free & Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Jenny Manseau Gluten Free Works

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 Read More »

Gluten-free Gingerbread Man. istockphotos

This recipe for Gluten-Free Gingerbread Men is adapted from a recipe by Jacqueline Mallorca, “Rice Flour Gingerbread Cows”, featured in her fabulous cookbook, “The Wheat-Free Cook”.

This version is corn free as well as gluten-free and is extra-extra gingery- so cut back on the ginger if you like.

The gingerbread men are decorated with small amounts of Royal Icing and Chocolate Buttercream Frosting but use raisins and nuts for a charming au natural touch. Read More »

Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies

 

gluten free shortbread cookies

It’s that time of year again… when you allow yourself to bake with real butter… and lots of it! At first I was planning to make this recipe with margarine (since that’s what I had), but my mom adamantly informed me that shortbread is made with REAL BUTTER, and anything less is sacrilege. It’s Christmas after all, right? But what if I would rather not gain ten pounds over the holidays? Apparently buttlerless shortbread cookies are not an option. And I’m not sure that eating less of them is an option either… these things seem to call your name from the freezer. Read More »

Kinnikinnick Begins Offering New Mixes in Time for Holidays

Kim Bouldin Gluten Free Works

Welcome to Monday, December 12, 2011.  Only 13 days until Christmas!  For all of you out there (this includes me) who haven’t finished your shopping, it is time to get busy!   Right now I am out running 8-10 miles to help motivate myself to knock out the rest of my shopping later on today.  Not sure yet if that will include in person or online shopping – it depends on how I feel.

With Hannah home sick with the stomach flu, I had plenty of time to catch up on all things online.   I found some great gluten-free tidbits and plan to share one of them now with you guys! Are you ready? Ta-da….

Gluten-free and Vegan Gingersnap Cookies

Healthful Pursuit - Leanne Vogel

I loved the idea of gifting my homemade cake stands to friends and families for the holidays. (Thanks everyone!)

Thing is – you can’t really give a cake stand to someone without having treats on it, especially if they know that you love to bake.

So I tried to figure out what seasonal recipe I could make for the stands that I could prepare ahead of time, freeze, would appeal to everyone I know (gluten-free, vegan, egg allergies, potato allergies etc), and will stay on the stand with little concern of things breaking.

Tall order, right? Read More »
