Gluten Free Brownie Recipe with Peanut Butter Swirls

Image: Gluten Free Brownie with Peanut Butter Swirls

I already have a recipe for a Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Brownies. They are very moist. This gluten free brownie recipe calls for chocolate versus cocoa powder. They are both delicious, but the creamy peanut butter swirls make it taste like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. If you enjoy Reese’s, you’ll really appreciate these brownies. I like this recipe because of they are moist and not overly sweet. Continue reading “Gluten Free Brownie Recipe with Peanut Butter Swirls”

Dairy Free Gluten Free Brownies Recipe – Rocky Road Style

Image: Dariy Free Gluten Free Brownies

This gluten free brownies recipe contains marshmallows and walnuts like any rocky road dessert. The marshmallows melt into the batter while it bakes, creating a lighter, almost cake-like texture, but chewier. Once in awhile you’ll get a taste of the marshmallows, which is the characteristic my husband most enjoyed. For a heavier brownie, just cut the baking soda in half.

Gluten Free Honey Graham Blondies (Egg-Free with Dairy-Free Options)

Image: Gluten Free Blondies

For the bottom layer of these gluten free blondies, or dessert bars, if you wish, I used my gluten free graham cracker recipe. I added a bit more honey and butter to soften the crust. You may add sweetened condensed milk, or for dairy-free, coconut milk and honey. After that you top it with your favorite toppings: chocolate chips, nuts, oatmeal, and/or shredded coconut. I skipped the coconut due to allergies. Of course, if you’re dairy-free you’ll use your favorite brand of dairy-free chocolate chips. I’ve listed the most popular, easy to melt brand below. Once baked and cooled, you have yourself treats for home or on-the-go! And they are made egg-free! Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Honey Graham Blondies (Egg-Free with Dairy-Free Options)”

Gluten Free Dessert Bars: Lime Mint Shortbread

Image: Lime Jello Mint Bars

To add to the few Gluten Free St. Patrick’s Recipes I have, in addition to a few requests I have received, I created these gluten free dessert bars. I wanted to appeal to my Jello using readers. I don’t use Jello myself, as the chemicals are bad for those with food allergies, and I have several. However, you can make so many colorful creations with Jello, and it’s wonderful for firming up a soft custard or dessert. You can skip the mint and use any jello flavor you desire; and add fruit and/or nuts. I hope you enjoy this recipe! Continue reading “Gluten Free Dessert Bars: Lime Mint Shortbread”

Gluten Free Apple Strudel

Gluten Free Streudel Recipe

Again, I am honored to be able to create a gluten free recipe for KitchenAid. Today I present an amazing gluten free apple strudel, made with the new KitchenAid 13-Cup Food Processor with ExactSlice System. The strudel is absolutely amazing, as is the food processor! It’s right up there with my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. It has the ability to slice in 6 different thicknesses; works at 2 speeds; has 3 different sized openings to feed food items; comes with an adjustable slicing blade, as well as a shredder and dough blade (for yeast dough); is accompanied by several attachments, all in its own little carrying case/box. The best part…it has a separate chef bowl, with its own sized blade, which enables you to mix or prepare one food, while keeping the main bowl clean for your next food item. Heaven! When KitchenAid made this product, they read my mind! – and yours too, I bet.

UPDATE: I now use my Gluten Free Puff Pastry Recipe for the dough in this recipe. It is divine! See the below updated recipe as well as the updated photo.

Chocolate Gluten Free Rice Crispy Treats

These little babies are not only the first chocolate gluten free rice crispy treats I’ve ever made, but the first ever Rice Kripsies® treats I’ve ever made. As a child I not only never made Rice Krispies Treats, but had never tasted one. I know! I had a mother who loved dessert, and if there was going to be dessert in the house, she was going to want some. So…we usually had more adult desserts. Though she used to make a 3-layered Jello dessert only us kids would eat. Continue reading “Chocolate Gluten Free Rice Crispy Treats”

Gluten Free Dairy Free Brownies

A couple of years ago I created a Gluten Free Brownie Recipe, but I wanted to ensure that I addressed the needs of those who are dairy-free, as well. Therefore, I created this gluten free dairy free brownies recipe. Now that I have, I must say, these turned out incredible! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. I don’t know if my husband will see any of this batch since he’s out of town on business. And that is very much unlike me. Brownies are his favorite gluten free dessert, or any dessert, for that matter. I know he’ll love these, and he’s not 100% gluten free! He’s only gluten free by default (me being gluten free). Enjoy!

Gluten Free Nanaimo Bars Without Coconut

Gluten Free Nanaimo Bars without Coconut

With the hot weather we’ve been having, I thought I would make a no-bake dessert. Nanaimo bars are a Canadian treat. I substituted the traditional packaged pudding (or packaged pastry cream, depending upon brand) with gluten-free cream cheese (just 2 tablespoons). You can always use your own homemade custard. Mothers and grandmothers used to make these for their kids beginning in the 50’s and 60’s, and some still do. I made them without coconut, due to food allergies. Shredded coconut is usually used in the bottom layer. I substituted coarsely chopped almond meal. You can use regular. I just ground my own. This is a special treat that everyone can enjoy because you can change ingredients fairly easily to allow for food allergies. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Nanaimo Bars Without Coconut”
