Healthy Gluten Free Pancakes

Gluten Free Pancakes made from Oats

Last Updated on

This gluten free pancakes recipe was contributed by Joy Bauer, nutritionist for NBC’s The Today Show. Joy is well known for her healthy recipes. I love that these are made with lots of egg white, though you’d never know. I didn’t have any gluten free quick cooking oats on hand so I soaked regular gluten free oats in the egg whites for about 10 minutes and used agave instead of granulated sugar. I also chose to cover the pan to ensure they cooked all of the way through. Usually with regular oats you need a tad bit more liquid. I think I’ll add a bit of water, too next time, or perhaps some of my homemade almond milk. I topped my pancake off with some pure organic maple syrup. They were very yummy gluten free pancakes for being so very healthy! Enjoy! Continue reading “Healthy Gluten Free Pancakes”

Sauteed Swiss Chard (Naturally Gluten Free)

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Garlic

Last Updated on

This sauteed Swiss Chard recipe, is another healthy Joy Bauer recipes. It is wonderful, and naturally gluten-free. Not only is it healthy, but is very flavorful. And if you have any leftovers you may add it to an omelette for a nutritious breakfast. I used it in a gluten free crepe recipe, which I post shortly. This sauteed Swiss chard is great with something as simple as scrambled eggs, and you can make it healthier by using some additional egg whites instead of all whole eggs; or  eat it plain. I only had 3/4 pound of Swiss chard on hand. As you can see in the photo, it made about 2-3 servings. Joy believes 2 pounds is 2 servings. I really have to get with it on the veggie portions. Don’t I? It was perfect for me and the hubby, though, if there’s any left by the time he gets home. Enjoy! And thank you once again, Joy, for this delicious, healthy gluten free recipe!

Gluten Free Oatmeal Recipe: Dark Chocolate Oats

Chocolate Gluten Free Oatmeal with Bananas

Last Updated on

Joy Bauer is known for her healthy recipes. In this gluten free oatmeal recipe (actually whole oats, in this case), Joy has combined healthy, high soluble fiber (keeps you feeling full) oats, or steel-cut oats, with one of my favorite staples, chocolate, making a wonderful gluten free breakfast. And we all keep hearing how dark chocolate is a healthy choice. Simply by adding unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar or sugar substitute (I used xylitol), and some fruit, makes for a healthy, hearty breakfast. Using berries is ideal. (I just didn’t have any one hand.) As berries are also high in fiber, and lower in carbs than bananas. So, if you’re on a gluten free diet or not, give this gluten free oatmeal recipe (oats) a try for your next breakfast meal, and get your New Year’s resolutions off to a great start, as well as you day!

Gluten Free Quinoa Recipe with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms

Last Updated on

Joy Bauer outdid herself with this gluten free quinoa recipe. Typically caramelized onion is made by sauteing onion in butter and oil for about 30-45 minutes until they become caramelized, but Joy created a way of caramelizing them with sugar. This makes this recipe much lower in fat. Just a gem of a recipe. You can make it vegan by using vegetable broth, or not, by using chicken broth. It can also be made with, or without the mushrooms, as I did. Enjoy this healthy gluten free quinoa recipe, as is, or with your favorite tweaks! I used evaporated cane sugar instead of refined sugar. Just delish! See my photo below. Continue reading “Gluten Free Quinoa Recipe with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms”

Gluten Free Sugar Free Chocolate Sauce (Low-Fat)

Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Chocolate Sauce

Last Updated on

This gluten-free chocolate sauce recipe is another incredible recipe, compliments of Joy Bauer. I really like the fact that you can make this recipe with fresh fruit, rather than a refined sugar ice cream, and get the same satisfaction. It also calls for fat-free evaporated milk. What’s not to love? Instead of using refined sugar or Splenda, I used xylitol, and it came out yummy, without that strong bitter aftertaste of some sugar substitutes. You can also substitute the cornstarch for tapioca starch, especially if you are corn intolerant. It truly turned out delicious! It cools as it thickens. The only change I had to make in cooking this chocolate sauce recipe was to raise the heat to medium-high. The warm chocolate sauce atop fresh fruit tasted like an ice cream sundae, without the guilt! Thank you once again, Joy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Sugar Free Chocolate Sauce (Low-Fat)”

Low-Fat Gluten Free Coleslaw with Yogurt Dressing

Last Updated on

Another healthy, gluten-free recipe contributed by Joy Bauer.

My husband does not like yogurt, Greek yogurt or cream cheese. Shhh!  Don’t tell him, but this recipe contains yogurt. To make things worse, when I made it, I used Greek yogurt which tastes a bit like sour cream, at least FAGE brand does. He really enjoyed it, though. Of course, I admitted that I added some yogurt after he ate it, after receiving his positive feedback. You see, this gluten free coleslaw recipe contains more yogurt than mayonnaise, creating a lower-fat coleslaw. In addition, it does not contain any sugar, though I add a few pinches of stevia to mine. If you’re counting calories, trying to lower your fat content, lower your cholesterol, or just plain wish to eat healthier, give this a try! A definite to add to your gluten free recipes to cut back on calories and cholesterol. Joy has done it again! Continue reading “Low-Fat Gluten Free Coleslaw with Yogurt Dressing”

One of Joy Bauer‘s healthy gluten free chicken recipes that just sound delicious. Because it contains tomatoes, I am not able to provide you with a photo, at this time, as I have a tomato allergy, but it sounded so delicious and healthy, I just had to share it with you all! I will have to make this using peppers and a sauce as a substitute for the tomatoes; or make it as is for my husband. Until then, I hope you find this gluten free recipe delicious and report back your findings to us all. Continue reading “Gluten Free Chicken Curry and Vegetables”
