Gluten Free Sweet Potato Muffins

These gluten free sweet potato muffins have the weight and texture of a quick bread, such as banana bread, but perhaps a little lighter. They are very moist, and more importantly, packed with nutritious ingredients which I wouldn’t mind giving my grandchildren. And being that I used xylitol instead of sugar, I look forward to using them as a healthy snack for myself more often. These gluten free sweet potato muffins would make an excellent substitution for cornbread this Thanksgiving, as well. And they are a great way to use left over sweet potatoes! That was my reason for creating this recipe. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Sweet Potato Muffins”

Corn Free Gluten Free Sweet Potato Spoon Bread

Even gluten free sweet potato spoon bread usually contains cornmeal, but for my corn free readers I thought I would make a corn free version. You can definitely substitute half of the flour for some cornmeal which will need to be cooked in the milk prior to adding it to the food processor or blender. However, my husband really enjoyed the corn-free version, and he’s a cornbread lover, and I hope you enjoy it, as well.

Note that this gluten free sweet potato spoon bread bakes like a souffle, rising and pulling away from the sides of the dish. Continue reading “Corn Free Gluten Free Sweet Potato Spoon Bread”

Gluten Free Cornbread for Stuffing or Dessert

Moist Gluten Free Cornbread

Last year I had a request for a good gluten free cornbread stuffing recipe, but I hadn’t created a gluten free cornbread recipe, and never got around to it. So, this year, it is my top priority. Once you have a good gluten free cornbread recipe you can make any stuffing recipe you choose using that gluten free cornbread. Preferably it should be a soft, absorbable one. This recipe is more of a cake-style cornbread recipe, however, you can adjust it to create a more traditional gluten free cornbread for stuffing.

I love the¬†dessert version. I think my hubby’s favorite foods are stuffing and cornbread, and he was in heaven with this gluten free corn bread recipe this morning, and he’s not 100% gluten free! With the adjustments above, hubby says it tastes just like cornbread. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Cornbread for Stuffing or Dessert”

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free Eggnog Recipe

I had never tasted a sugar free eggnog recipe before today, but the holidays are almost upon us and who cannot resist all of that sugar, dairy, chocolate, what have you? I certainly have trouble doing so! I do not have eggnog very often, but when I do, I just cannot seem to stop myself from having a second glass. Heaven knows if we have a holiday dinner and there is left over eggnog, I’m having it for breakfast instead of my healthy protein shake. This year, I just had to get a hold of myself prior to the holidays. This is what inspired me to come up with this sugar free eggnog recipe.

You can double, triple, etc. as needed.

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Recipe with Caramel Sauce and Nuts

I get a lot of requests for a gluten free chocolate cake recipe. And¬†I had run across a recipe for caramel sauce which made me think of a cake recipe my sister used to make. It had a caramel-like sauce and walnuts placed beneath a chocolate cake batter in a bundt pan. Often some of the caramel and nuts would stick to the pan, but it was so so good! I wanted to convert this to a gluten free chocolate cake recipe, but she has lost the recipe. I’m sure she’ll find it one day but stored it away once the caramel sauce wasn’t turning out right. She thinks the corn syrup is made differently nowadays. Continue reading “Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Recipe with Caramel Sauce and Nuts”

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

These gluten free pumpkin pancakes are perfect for this time of year, whether served in October or for a Thanksgiving breakfast or brunch. I always make my banana pancakes with white rice flour and no gum at all, but with the bananas, you do not taste any grittiness and these definitely needed a bit of xanthan or guar gum. When I used regular white rice flour in this gluten free pumpkin pancakes recipe, I did notice some grittiness. I suggest trying sorghum flour or oat flour instead. And because it contains no starches, superfine rice flours should work well, too. Meanwhile, these were delicious anyway! Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Snacks: Spiced Nuts or Agave Candied Spiced Nuts

With the holidays soon approaching you may find these gluten-free snack recipes will come in handy. It’s definitely less expensive than purchasing canned nuts. These spiced nuts make a great everyday gluten-free snack, as well. Use your favorite nuts. I would have definitely added some macadamia nuts, but I was out. You can change the spices to fit your tastes, as well. For Halloween, use¬†allspice, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon with pumpkin seeds! Mix up your gluten-free snacks with mixed nuts. Check out the two recipe versions below and have fun! Continue reading “Gluten-Free Snacks: Spiced Nuts or Agave Candied Spiced Nuts”

Tri-Tip Roast Recipe with Gluten Free Gravy

I made this tri-tip roast recipe with gluten-free gravy right before I left last week to take care of my father. Now that it’s fall, it’s time for some comfort food, and with Dad terminally ill, I surely needed the comfort. Plus, the tri-tip roast was on sale and I couldn’t pass up the bargain. I like roast because it lasts for more than one meal in our house since it’s just the two of us. And this left my hubby plenty of food in the freezer to tied him over while I was gone. He found it comforting, too, since I was leaving. Not to mention, this tri-tip roast recipe is very flavorful! Enjoy. Continue reading “Tri-Tip Roast Recipe with Gluten Free Gravy”
