Grain free, gluten free chocolate cupcakes made with coconut oil for your Paleo celebrations.

Coconut Bars

Posted on January 12, 2012

Lightly sweetened gluten free, grain free Coconut Bars contain good fats from heart healthy coconut oil.

These rich and moist coconut bars are made of not one, but three different forms of scrumptiously healthy coconut, including shredded coconut, coconut oil and coconut milk in their ingredients list.

I have Shirley at Gluten Free Easily to thank for this recipe as it is based upon her famous gluten free Crustless Coconut Pie. I’m a big fan of Shirley’s crustless pie recipes. They’re perfect ... read more →

Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake

Posted on August 18, 2011

This simple gluten free shortcake recipe is easy enough to make with your children

One summer evening as I baked countless batches of gluten free cookies, my older son popped into the kitchen. Determined to join me in my culinary adventures, he decided to make gluten free strawberry shortcake from scratch (as in using no cookbook or recipe). The twist?  He’s a chocolate lover, so he made Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake.

As you may know, Jewish mothers tend to think of their sons ... read more →

Espresso Fudge Brownies

Posted on June 14, 2011

I was working my way through the Cook’s Illustrated website the other night and came across an amazing recipe for Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies.  As soon as I laid eyes on that recipe I knew I had to create a high protein, gluten free version.  While my husband enjoys all of my gluten free chocolate recipes, this is his fave.  He even left a special love note on the fridge for me late last night after sampling them.

Of course this ... read more →

Chocolate Almond Joy Bars

Posted on June 10, 2011

These gluten free Chocolate Almond Joy Bars were inspired by Carrie of GingerLemonGirl.com who wrote a recipe for Almond Joy Impossible Pie.  Who doesn’t like the combination of chocolate, almonds and coconut in the form of a high protein, gluten free treat?

I don’t generally discuss nutrition because I assume most people who find this site know that that my recipes are different than most other gluten free offerings.  Ingredients such as almond flour and coconut flour do not compare to ... read more →

Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies

Posted on January 28, 2011

These healthier gluten free brownies are the perfect Super Bowl snack. My family loved them and I’m hoping my guests will too when I serve these treats along with my gluten free Super Bowl Cake Pops come next Sunday when the Packers take on the Steelers and I have my big, bad, gluten free Super Bowl party.

These brownies use high fiber coconut flour and are based on a recipe by Michelle from Gluten Free Fix; her recipe is called Gluten Free Fudge ... read more →

Blueberries and Cream Cupcakes

Posted on May 21, 2010

The idea to make these gluten free Blueberries and Cream Cupcakes came from the book Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes. You can view her original recipe over at ivillage.com.  While testing, the boys and I were referring to these yummy little gluten free treats as blueberry shortcake cupcakes and as you can imagine, the 3 of us enjoyed every bite.

My husband, unfortunately, was not privy to a tasting of these gluten free cupcakes since he was on an extended business trip ... read more →

Coconut Cupcakes with Key Lime Icing

Posted on May 7, 2010

Thanks everyone for your cupcake suggestions.  The idea for these gluten free Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes came from comments left by sas and laura in my Jelly Donut Cupcake post –the post that launched my own personal month of cupcakes.

These gluten free cupcakes were a real winner with my children.  Whenever I get out the icing bag, they go bonkers and yesterday was no different.  I had to hold them back when they arrived home from school, so that I ... read more →

Jelly Donut Cupcakes

Posted on May 4, 2010

In honor of Celiac Awareness Month, I have decided to make May my own personal cupcake month.  Today’s post is Jelly Donut (or Doughnut) Cupcakes, and I’m going to attempt to do a gluten free cupcake recipe every time I post in May –wish me luck!

These gluten free Jelly Donut Cupcakes are filled with yummy raspberry jam and oozing with fruity goodness.  My husband liked them so much that he took the entire batch to his office to (hopefully) share ... read more →

Chocolate Cupcakes

Posted on June 12, 2009

The New York Times blog, Bitten, just did a feature on chocolate cupcakes, which made me realize that a recipe for gluten free chocolate cupcakes is conspicuously lacking from this site.  Well, I am happy to say that is no longer the case.

In my quest for the perfect gluten free chocolate cupcake, I made these 5 times.  Today.  Luckily, my boys and their glutenoid friends happily scarfed the “failures.”  Here, I share with you my success.

Twinkies

Posted on May 15, 2009

I’ve been on a quest this week for gluten-free, dairy-free healthy Twinkies and after several attempts (make that 7) I seem to have come up with a good approximation of this infamous Hostess treat.

Whenever the subject of Twinkies comes up in our house a certain Twinkie vandalism story is told (of which I was not a part!).  My husband likes to talk about the time (in his college days) when he and a buddy were coming home from a night ... read more →

German Chocolate Cake Revised

Posted on February 17, 2009

We will be making this gluten free German Chocolate Cake (and many other dishes) in my next cooking class at the Culinary School of the Rockies, March 17th.  If you want to sign up there is still some space left.

As we all know, there are many ways to make German Chocolate Cake.  An entire chocolate cake can be frosted with a coconut pecan icing as I did a while back in this post.  Alternatively, the sides of the cake can ... read more →

German Chocolate Cake

Posted on December 26, 2008

When I recently posted my Accidental Mocha Mousse recipe, Samantha requested this German Chocolate Cake so that she and her mother would not miss out on it during the holidays. I am more than pleased to add it to this blog, as German Chocolate Cake is a classic.

Although my boys are in a finicky stage lately, boycotting most of the things I make (even dessert!) they eagerly wolfed down this sweet, rich chocolaty cake.

Six Layer White Cake

Posted on September 2, 2008

My children have been stuck with me and my veggie creations for the past month; these final days of summer, they are not drawn into the kitchen so quickly. Sure, they eat the vegetable dishes I make, however they are not particularly excited by my recent culinary explorations.

Imagine their interest the other day then, at the very end of their summer vacation, when I offered to bake cake with them (and the four friends they had over). They ... read more →

Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

Posted on April 22, 2008

I am happy to introduce gluten free vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting and continue on my coconut flour recipe roll. I have been making (and testing) this dessert for close to two years and it is one of my personal favorites. I think it might be a hit with you too based on reports from taste testing friends.

Passover really threw me for a loop. It wasn’t the guests we had visit for the holiday. It ... read more →

Vanilla Torte with Raspberry Filling and Chocolate Frosting

Posted on April 11, 2008

Ok, so in yesterday’s “reach out and touch someone” post I failed. In fact, I fell flat. On my face. Do you know how many comments were posted? One. Not much community in one post.

To cheer myself up, I can always read some Dooce. That woman makes me laugh out loud. Or I can listen to the Captain and Tenille’s Love Will Keep Us Together. Either way, I do not despair, Passover is near and ... read more →

Chocolate Cake

Posted on March 18, 2008

A decadent dessert recipe that’s high protein, gluten free, dairy free and nut free.

Yes, I continue to roll out the coconut flour recipes. This time it’s gluten free Chocolate Cake. I am having a great time experimenting with this unique flour. I have been doing so for almost two years now and have created a small stockpile of recipes that work well with its light and fluffy texture.

This gluten free, dairy free chocolate cake (nut free too) is a ... read more →
