Carob, Chocolate or Chocolate Chip Gluten Free Oat Crepes

Gluten Free Oat Crepes with Chocolate or Chocolate Chips

These crepes are simply amazing! I enjoyed making these gluten free oat crepes by halving the recipe and adding finely chopped carob chips (you can use any gluten free chocolate or chips) to part of the batter. To the other portion of the batter I added 3/8 to 1/2 cup of homemade ganache. Then I used the remaining ganache to spread on some of the crepes, along with peanut butter and sliced strawberries. To die for! What makes these crepes a healthy choice is that they are made without the use of high-carb white starch or gums. All you need is gluten free oat flour or ground oats. Enjoy.

Gluten Free Angel Food Cake

Gluten Free Angel Food Cake

Cake flour is used in angel food cakes because it contains low protein, which means less gluten. This makes baking a gluten free angel food cake ideal! Because cake flour is a finer texture than regular wheat flour, it is extremely important that you use a superfine gluten free flour for this recipe. I used my Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour Blend, which is made up of superfine white rice flour. You’ll find the link below. I use it in most of my baking recipes. However, I did not use my Gluten Free Cake Flour Blend recipe in this cake, as it contains leaveners such as baking soda and baking powder, which you do not want to add to an angel food cake. Angel food cake uses egg whites as the leavener, and a bit of cream of tartar to stabilize the egg whites and prevent them from drying out.¬†¬†It contains no fat, making this an ideal dessert for waistline watchers!

Gluten Free Flourless Chocolate Cake Kosher for Passover

While I am still working on my gluten free matzo balls recipe, I thought I would share this wonderful gluten free flourless chocolate cake recipe with you all, but especially my Jewish readers. During Passover, it customary not to bake with certain grains. Some refrain from consuming grains altogether. Another custom is once matzo meal touches water it must be cooked within 18 minutes. In addition, yeast is avoided, and some avoid all leavening ingredients such as baking powder and/or baking soda. Despite my¬†lack of knowledge for baking for Passover, I believe that this recipe pleases all. Happy flourless, leaven-free baking to you.¬†I hope you all enjoy it whether you’re Jewish or not.

Gluten Free Crepes (Sweet or Savory)

Though I already have a Gluten Free Crepes Recipe, it is flourless and high protein. Today, after a Facebook fan requested a gluten free crepe recipe, I began to crave them myself. I wanted a traditional flour crepe; therefore, I used my gluten free all-purpose flour blend recipe. Though I suggest using a blender to make crepes, they can be made by whisking by hand. The use of a blender provides a smooth batter, so they will turn out perfectly.

In case you have never made crepes, I provide the instructions on how to swirl them in the pan, for a perfect crepe. Just note that sometimes your first crepe doesn’t turn out perfectly, just as in making pancakes. It allows you to adjust the temperature of the pan. Perhaps the first one will provide you a little snack to keep you satisfied until the others are done. Enjoy!
