Crunchy Homemade Gluten Free Gingerbread Granola

Gluten Free Gingerbread Granola

‘Tis the season for everything eggnog, pumpkin, peppermint and gingerbread. This gluten free granola recipe is no different, as it is gingerbread flavored. Nature’s Path makes one where for everyone sold, they done one to a food shelter. However, unfortunately, it’s not gluten free. Once I saw it, I just had to create my own recipe. I used most of the ingredients they use, accept I used “gluten free” oats, added tons of nuts, some brown flax seed meal (it has more omega’s than golden flax seeds), agave and honey. I didn’t have any crystallized ginger, but omitted the rice starch intentionally. Because it contains evaporated cane juice sugar, it turns out crispier than the Gluten Free Granola Recipe I usually make. However, because it is sweet, I don’t need to add raisins or other dried fruit. Continue reading “Crunchy Homemade Gluten Free Gingerbread Granola”

These gluten free chicken nuggets areĀ fast and easy to make. The great thing about them is that you bake them instead of deep-frying. This makes a healthier gluten-free dinner. Use the recipe for homemade seasoned bread crumbs, or add dried herbs and/or parmesan cheese to commercial gluten free bread crumbs. You can even grind up gluten-free cereal or crackers to substitute for the bread crumbs.Ā No matter what sauce you dip them in, they are delicious, even plain!

Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream

This is more of a sherbet than a vegan pumpkin ice cream, but is still extremely delicious for a diary free version. Since its development, I have discovered that adding one teaspoon of xanthan gum added to ice cream creates a more chewy texture. In this recipe you would need to mix about 1/2 teaspoon of gum with the oil. Note, that this is not a new recipe, but the original, published in 2010, seems to have vanished from this site. Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate Recipe

Sugar-free chocolate can be expensive, and if you have to find a safe gluten-freeĀ brand on top it, it can be even more difficult. With this gluten-free sugar-free chocolate recipe, you can make dark chocolate or chocolate ganache. If you are also on a dairy-free diet, you can still make both. For dairy-free ganache,Ā instead of using heavy whipping cream, you use coconut milk. For the fat in this recipe, you have the option of using shortening (I use organic palm shortening) or coconut oil. Depending upon its use and your dietary needs will determine which ingredients you use. ThisĀ recipe is low in carbs when not using cream. I hope you enjoy this recipe. It has many uses. You can even break it up to use as chocolate chips in your baked recipes.

Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwiches

My quest to develop a gluten free ice cream sandwich took much more time than I expected. I first tried to adapt my own moist Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate Cake recipe. I just left out the leaveners. However, it turned out very gummy and too chewy. In my search to adapt a gluten ice cream sandwich recipe, all recipes fell short of my expectations by viewing their photos. I couldn’t even turn to Martha Stewart or Joy of Baking, two of my favorite cooking sites. Continue reading “Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwiches”

I have included a link to my article on which lists several gluten free salad dressing brands and flavors. Continue reading “Easy Vegetable Gluten Free Pasta Salad”
