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!
Is it Entenmanns? Is it from New Jersey? No! It’s a gluten free crumb cake I made at home! As I continue down my never-ending gluten free journey, I get these little cravings of foods I used to love dearly. Growing up in Jersey, this was probably one of the best foods. Ever.

Getting tired of the same old gluten free cereal or eggs for breakfast? These little gems are ready in about a half hour. It makes six mini cakes (I like two per serving), so I make them one morning and have breakfast for the next three mornings. Convenience is a beautiful thing. These have very little sugar, and the banana in the batter keeps them moist (even the following days), but doesn’t have a banana flavor to them. They remind me of a store-bought, individually wrapped coffee cake from my pre-gluten free days. Continue Reading
Bored with the same ho-hum breakfast? If you have 10 minutes to spare, you can whip these up, toss them in the oven and continue with your morning routine for 15 minutes while these bake. They will rise tall, like the photo, as they come out of the oven, but will quickly settle in. They are not overly sweet, but have a crater of crunchy sweet cinnamon in the middle. Add a little more sugar to the batter if you like things sweeter. This recipe makes three babies- which is one serving in this household.
Mix up a bunch of these spices and store in a jar to add instant yum to smoothies, yogurt, pancakes, Gluten Free Chai Cereal – Hot or Cold, muffins, hot chocolate, and more. Watch for more recipes that include this tasty mix!
