About 1 Hour or Less, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Paleo Friendly, Recipes, Sweet, Vegetarian

I had the pleasure of working side-by-side with Michelle at Totality Living Well at the Gluten & Allergen Free Event in Knoxville, where we did a segment on fast and fun sweets. I demonstrated the ease of Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough and Michelle made this recipe to make sure we had all of the chocolate lovers covered. The addition of coffee and spices give these some incredible depth, and are a perfect fit for autumn! They are super-easy to make and free from gluten, grain, soy, gums and dairy (if you choose a DF chocolate). Yummy!

Cookie dough is a fantastic way to enjoy something sweet, and something perhaps a bit healthier than a store-bough treat laden with sugar, additives and gums. Like all of the cookie dough recipes on this blog, they are all gluten, grain, gum, soy, egg and dairy free. It takes about 5 minutes to assemble, then store in the fridge for a few days. Bake for 12 minutes or so, then let cool – they need a little time to set. Scroll down below the recipe and print a label for the lid of your storage container.

They are pretty nutrient dense, and could possibly double as a nutritious snack, or maybe even breakfast? Make them big or small and toss a spoonful of your favorite ice cream in between them!  Just yummy!

This is perhaps one of the most allergen friendly recipes I make. Gluten, grain, egg, soy and dairy free (so long as you select a chocolate chip product that meets those requirements). With just a few minutes to mix up the dough, then under 15 minutes in the oven, you’ll have some yummy, soft chocolate chip cookies- just let them cool for several minutes before eating so they firm up. Use the dough in a few days. Continue Reading

What comes to mind when you think of gluten free sandwich bread? Thick as a brick, dry and crumbly, can only be eaten toasted, expensive, or just plain yuck and something that was written off years ago. People always ask if I’ve ever come across a really good GF sandwich loaf recipe, which for years the answer was “nope,” until now!

I’ve been gluten free for so long now, I think I’ve developed an aversion to store bought loaf breads that crumble at the mere thought of a piece of turkey and some lettuce. Here’s a Gluten Free, Grain Free, Gum Free, Yeast Free, Soy Free and Dairy Free loaf bread (which can be made with dairy if you prefer). Continue Reading

Some people love white bread, others prefer a honey-wheat flavor. With that said, finding one that’s gluten free that you actually like is another story. Like the white bread recipe, this one stays together when you’re eating a sandwich. It’s also grain free, dairy free, yeast free and xanthan gum free! And the little extra sweetness makes for the perfect nut butter and jelly sandwich or some yummy French toast!

This recipe is the base for my Cinnamon Raisin Bread too!  Note! No wheat was used to make this recipe!

If you like a visual on how it’s made, visit the gluten-free-way You Tube channel to see this short video that includes a fast and easy way to line a loaf pan with parchment! Continue Reading

Oh Joy! This recipe was super-approved in our house! It’s basically the Honey Un-Wheat Sandwich Loaf with tasty cinnamon-raisin-nut blend swirled throughout. We will slice it, then freeze it to keep it fresh. If you have leftovers, you can turn it into French toast in no time.

This recipe is not only gluten free, but grain free, xanthan gum free, yeast free, soy free and dairy free too, although you can make the dairy version if you are good with dairy.

I created a short video on how to make this, with a super quick instruction on how to line a loaf pan with parchment.  Click here for a White Sandwich Loaf or a Honey Un-Wheat Loaf!

It’s been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And breakfast foods usually fall into the category of the least time consuming in terms of preparation in our house. Be it cereal, a cup of yogurt of a banana, sometimes a more substantial food like waffles is worth the few extra minutes. With so many gluten free products out there, it’s pretty easy to find a flour blend that will make some pretty good waffles in a short timeframe. Like lots of gluten free stuff, once you find the flour blends that provide the taste and textures you like, gluten free life isn’t so bad.. Continue Reading

Oh the stuff you can make with vegetables! Wraps are a great way to get extra veggies in your day and in some instances, enjoy them even more than ever. And, sometimes a wrap seems just better than bread because I don’t know about you, but I think GF bread can get a bit boring, or just takes a little too long to defrost when I’m hungry.

This is the third wrap recipe I’ve created this year (see the other recipes HERE). This gluten-grain-dairy-gum free recipe came about after trying a raw wrap made from zucchini of all things, while I was on a camping trip – the wrap itself tasted awesome, but it was the texture that I was not a fan of.

No longer a casualty of your gluten free lifestyle! Pizza Rolls are back, baby!  Our family used to love these little gluten-filled gems – they were a snacking go-to back in the day because they were convenient and tasty.   Because I haven’t had them in maybe a decade, I started getting that craving for an off limits food experience that couldn’t ever happen. You know how that goes, right? So I went to work on making these. The main flour used is cassava flour, and it is readily available in many healthy grocery stores or online. It’s really a great flour to have on hand if you’re gluten free and grain free. Continue Reading

I’m thinking of starting a new category for my blog called, “Foods You Wish Were GF, But Aren’t… But Now Are!” This one took several tries to get it right, thanks to some really tough criticism from my gluten eaters who pushed me to keep making it so it could be as close to perfect (and crispy) as possible. They are really easy to make, once you get the hang of it (I’ve included a visual guide below to show you the technique).  Continue Reading
