There’s nothing like baked fruit desserts in summer. With seasonal, fresh, luscious ingredients, this gluten free Apple Blackberry Crisp is the perfect healthy and scrumptious, warm weather delight. When finished off with a high protein almond flour topping, baked treats such as this are superfood in the form of dessert. Now what’s better than that?
Our summer started last Thursday when the boys finished school, and we are having an excellent time thus far. Our house has been the setting for ... read more →

I have been a huge fan of Michael Ruhlman’s book Ratio for quite some time. His work really came to life for me when I saw him speak at Blogher Food last year. He conveys his love of good food in a passionate manner, which I find compelling.
So, when my friend Silvana invited me to participate in this month’s Ratio Rally, I said yes, even though I have not really baked using ratios and scales. I am definitely a numbers ... read more →

I’ve been on a gluten free Hamantaschen rampage the last few days and these are my latest and greatest. I’ll be serving them at today’s Purim party for my younger son’s Chavurah. We’re having 7 families over in a little while to celebrate Purim and the story of Esther.
I hope you all enjoy these gluten free Chocolate Raspberry Hamantaschen!

As a Jew, Irish Soda Bread would not be something that comes naturally to me. However, over the years, I’ve received numerous requests for a gluten free, dairy free, gum free, high protein Irish Soda Bread. Well, here you have it.
Given that all things Irish are not my native habitat, I had to do some research to actually figure out what Irish Soda Bread is. Here’s what Wikipedia had to say about it:
“Soda bread are a variety of quick bread ... read more →

Did you know that I am obsessed with all things muesli? I have a recipe for muesli bread in my book, and I make just about everything else I can with muesli. While traditionally muesli has oats in it, I make mine grain free, as I follow as diet that is very close to Primal/Paleo.
So what exactly is muesli? According to Wikipedia, it is a “popular breakfast cereal based on uncooked rolled oats, fruit and nuts. It was developed around ... read more →

Looking for a quick and easy gluten free chocolate cake? This one is so simple that you can make it one pot and it doesn’t need a drop of frosting. I’m hooked on this thick, fudgey, yet cakey treat. I made it a couple of weeks ago during our Super Bowl party and it was gobbled up in mere minutes by our boisterous gang of guests.
If you are not in the mood for white chocolate, or wish to make a ... read more →

The recipe for these gluten free crackers comes from my friend Betsy
Don’t be confused by these gluten free Multi “Grain” Crackers. Because they are in fact gluten free and grain-free. That’s right, these crackers don’t contain grains. What are they made of? They contain a multitude of high protein, high fiber superfoods including almonds, flax and hemp.
So as you can see, even though these are called Multi “Grain” Crackers, I have not started eating grains again. And yes, I’ve been ... read more →

Once again, it’s all Joy the Baker’s fault. This scone obsession of mine. When I saw those cute little hand cut squares of Orange Chocolate Buttermilk Scones on her blog, joythebaker.com, I knew I had to make them mine. And I did. And then some.
So, here’s the latest in my scone series, gluten free Cranberry Orange Scones. As you can see, there is a strange “orangeness” on the top of my scones. That’s because I had a little extra zest ... read more →

These Nacho Cheese Triangles are the perfect healthy gluten free Super Bowl snack to quiet the hunger of your rowdy guests come the big game. Full of high protein almond flour, egg, cheese and spices, no one will guess that they are gluten free.
Better yet? You can serve them to Steelers and Packers fans alike. Who do you want to win? And more important, what will you be serving for Super Bowl XLV?

It really is Joy the Baker’s fault. I have been baking scones every day since I read her post for Orange and Dark Chocolate Buttermilk Scones. I knew I would have to make my own gluten free version. So I did. And it’s scone mania over here. It’s gotten so bad that last weekend I made 5 batches of scones. All gluten free of course.
Joy, I wish I was your gluten free neighbor. And by the way, I do not ... read more →

These healthy, higher protein, gluten free Date Walnut Bars are a nice alternative to my more indulgent gluten free Cake Pops. If you follow me on Facebook, you know I’m obsessed with cake pops. After I put the words “cake pops” in my status update bar for the umpteenth time, one of my followers said, “yes, I have noticed them!” I think she may have had just a twinge if sarcasm in her response, though who can blame her.
Anyway, back ... read more →

Gluten Free Cake Pops dipped in antioxidant rich dark chocolate.
This recipe for cake pops is one of my favorite gluten free desserts and can also be considered a gluten free candy.
I bought Bakerella’s fabulous book Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for More Than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats just after Thanksgiving.
Our chavurah came over for Shabbos dinner one night in early December and my friend Paige brought over a bunch of leftover cake balls that she had made from ... read more →

Okey dokey, here comes a turkey day fave. I’ve had a lot of requests for a gluten free biscuit lately, especially in my forums. These biscuits are super easy to make and high protein fare to boot. So you just might want to add these to your Thanksgiving menu. Or your Christmas dinner menu. Or a brunch menu. As you can see, they’re quite versatile.

In honor of fall, I spent several days last week in a pumpkin “trance,” experimenting with various iterations of gluten free baked goods containing pumpkin.
At first, I had terrible failures. Suffice it to say that my pumpkin cookies and pumpkin scones while edible, were not at all blog worthy. Next, I decided to make pumpkin loaves –while they didn’t look too pretty, they were delicious. Finally, I made these gluten free pumpkin bars, which my 10 year old declared “addictive.” Every day last ... read more →

It’s been a busy summer, with baseball, boys and everything else that goes on around here. Now that it’s the “harvest,” it’s the perfect time to announce what I grew over the summer. I cultivated a new book called:
Gluten-Free Cupcakes: 50 Irresistible Recipes Made with Almond and Coconut Flour
The book is available for pre-order on amazon.com and will be published next spring. If you need to get an immediate cupcake fix, check out the cupcake recipes from my Month O’ ... read more →

Spunky Coconut’s Chicken Meatballs!
This giveaway is now closed.
This recipe comes from The Spunky Coconut Cookbook by my adorable friend, Kelly Brozyna of the spunkycoconut.com.
Last weekend, between all of my writing deadlines, I snuck out of the house, away from the computer to meet up with Kelly and her family at the Boulder Farmer’s Market. We grabbed some grub from the market, splashed around with her gorgeous daughters in the creek, then walked around downtown together for a while.
How refreshing! I ... read more →

Finally, a gluten free cracker that is egg free as well! Who do I have to thank for this tasty cracker? Mark Sisson of Mark’s Daily Apple and author of The Primal Blueprint and The Primal Blueprint Cookbook. I am a huge fan of Mark and his work.

These healthy Chardonnay Crackers have a deep, rich and buttery flavor. They’re great for everyday snacking or as an hors d’œuvre. I like that they’re high in protein and have good fats (due to the blanched almond flour) and full of antioxidants (in the Grape Seed Flour). They’re a wonderful recovery snack as well after a good workout!
This isn’t the first recipe I’ve made using Grape Seed Flour from AprèsVin. Earlier this year I posted Chardonnay Grape Seed Flour Chocolate ... read more →
