When I was in New York a couple of weeks ago, I found a raw, vegan, gluten free granola made of mulberries and walnuts. It was absolutely delicious, though just a bit sweet for my palate.
I saved the package (it was made by International Harvest and they have other flavors as well), and this weekend found a dash of spare time to recreate their product without using the agave they add to sweeten it. I think it’s quite sweet enough ... read more →

I have been craving a good, healthy, tasty, gluten free bran muffin for quite some time. Finally, thanks to flaxmania (I’m on a string of flax recipes this week) here it is.
My friend Chris was one of my guinea pigs for this baking endeavor. She took a flax muffin home from my house one day and ate it the next for breakfast. Later, I received a phone call from her requesting this recipe. I take that as a good ... read more →

These hearty breakfast bars remind me of a granola bar or an omega-3 packed power bar. They’re filling and tasty.
After I made a batch of these and was waiting for them to cool before cutting and stylizing them for a “photo shoot,” my younger son proudly taunted me that he had picked out all of the raisins from the top of the bars.
Needless to say, I was quite miffed. Especially since I have a couple of half gallon jars ... read more →

Because of all of the requests I have had for more videos as well as for recipes using coconut flour…I have created a short video tutorial using coconut flour.
In this quick and easy tutorial I invite you into my kitchen to be taken step by step through a recipe for mini blueberry muffins. These muffins are mighty tasty.
My children and their friends (who can eat as much gluten as they want) fought over these muffins after I was ... read more →

These gluten free carrot muffins make a great addition to any brunch menu, though especially one for Mother’s Day.
These lightly sweetened muffins are made with high fiber coconut flour. Don’t let all that healthy stuff scare you off though, they’re mighty tasty. And with yacon sweetening them, they’re not too sweet. If you want to replace the yacon with agave your muffin will be just a bit sweeter. I tried making them both ways and preferred the yacon version.

We will be making these gluten free lemon poppy seed muffins at my class on March 17th at the Culinary School of the Rockies. I am sharing the recipe here for those of you that won’t be able to make it.
This is my mother-in-law’s favorite little muffin. When she came out to visit, I baked a batch and sent them with her so she would have sustenance for the plane ride home.
I like these muffins because they are not only ... read more →

These gluten free Pumpkin Pie Muffins are, of course, a favorite of my younger son. When he was little, he ate so much pumpkin and winter squash that he turned a slightly orange hue. Luckily, he’s back to normal now.
I often forget how much I love cooking with pumpkin until fall arrives. Well, fall is back and I have been using this vegetable with a vengeance.

1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
¼ teaspoon celtic sea ... read more →

UPDATE: Check out my revisited Gluten Free Pancakes recipe!
Baseball is finally over. We lost in the semifinals yesterday to the Rockies. It was a good game; we fought to the end.
This last week, the tournament had virtually taken over our lives with 7 games straight, all during dinner time. This successfully disturbed the rhythm and routine in my household, so I must confess to some relief that the season has come to an end. To celebrate ... read more →

UPDATE: check out my Mini Blueberry Muffins How-to video!
Blueberry muffins are such a classic little treat. Great for breakfast, an afternoon snack with a cup of tea or even dessert. These Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins, made with coconut flour, are light, fluffy and satisfying.
This is the first coconut flour recipe I have posted. My favorite taste tester (that would be the beloved husband) and I had a conversation last night about my coconut flour recipes during which he gave me ... read more →

My favorite taste tester is going on a diet. This is not good news.
This diet deal will require some serious re-inventing of the wheel over here. New standards will need to be implemented. No more –he ate two whole trays of that so it must be good– type ratings.
My favorite taste tester is also my best friend and has been for 16 years. He does not like it when I call him my “partner,” says it makes us sound like ... read more →

I love gluten free granola; sweet and crunchy, it always satisfies a good snack attack.
I also get a kick out of using the term “granola” to ridicule my Boulder brethren. However, when I’m feeling earthy, dousing myself in patchouli (which my husband dislikes to no end) I can easily apply the term to myself –even though I’m more of a yuppie than a hippie. I guess that would make me a yippie.
Alas, I digress. Several years ago when I ... read more →

My children love these pancakes. High in protein, we eat them for breakfast, lunch and every now and then, dinner.
Here’s an easy recipe for gluten free pancakes. These pancakes are so simple that my younger son makes them from scratch. The high protein ingredients alone in this recipe beat any pancake mix.
My husband and I were talking about pancake mixes last month when we had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants with friends Gary and Nancy. Gary mentioned ... read more →
