Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Covered Rice Cakes

I have had several requests for healthy gluten free recipes. With summertime here, I thought those of you with children would appreciate some ideas for healthy gluten free snacks.  I remember when I first began my gluten free diet in 2005, I tried a rice cake, and could barely finish it. It was so dry and tasteless. I resorted to snacking on watermelon instead. Things have changed, but I have learned different ways to consume rice cakes. When making these chocolate covered rice cakes, be sure to use a gluten free brand of rice cakes if you are gluten intolerant. I have listed one brand below.

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

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 Bars – Apple Walnut (Sugar-Free)

I decided to create my own gluten free snack bars with healthier choices of gluten free flours, and free of many allergens. Though the bar is heavy due its content, you can definitely make them more cake-like with lighter weight flours such as rice, sorghum, millet, etc. Just adjust the baking time as needed. You may also make them higher in fiber by using corn or rice bran to replace some or all of the buckwheat flour. Continue reading “Gluten Free Bars – Apple Walnut (Sugar-Free)”

Gooey Gluten Free Brownie Recipe

Gooey Gluten Free Brownies Recipe

Tropical Traditions sent me a jar of their gluten-free organic brown rice syrup to try. My first thought was either to use it in an ice cream or in a baked dessert. Brownies, I thought! Oh, I couldn’t get them out of my mind! I already have a couple of gluten-free brownie recipes, however, I really was looking forward to making a healthier one, and one that was super gooey! I performed a search online for brown rice syrup recipes and stumbled upon just what I had in mind, a brownie recipe made with brown rice syrup! I converted it to gluten-free brownie recipe and 1 1/2 times’ed the recipe, as it originally made such small brownies. So, here it is – my newest gluten-free brownie recipe. It’s ooey, gooey, sticky and tastes almost like a chocolate caramel. I added a bit of flaxseed meal to make it a little more healthier, but using organic brown rice syrup was such a great start. Brown rice syrup may look like agave, but is barely sweet, and especially when this recipe is made with bittersweet chocolate. Definitely a decadent delight. Enjoy! And stay tuned in tomorrow for the Tropical Traditions brown rice syrup giveaway with 5 winners! Continue reading “Gooey Gluten Free Brownie Recipe”
