Gluten Free Peach & Pear Crisp

July 10, 2016

 

peaches

So, it is the middle of summer and my family and I are craving all things Fall.  Why, you ask?  No idea…

Maybe since moving to Southern California from Minnesota, we miss the seasons.  I have been told we have 4 seasons in So Cal, but I have yet to see them…at least not in the drastic manner in which we were used to back in Minnesota.

Pies, crumbles,crisps, mulled spices, anything pumpkin or apple consumes our thoughts and I did the only thing I could think of that is fast.  Peach and Pear Crisp.  I haven’t set out to make this grain free yet, and I will!  But this worked in a pinch!  And in the healthiest manner possible!

Recipe Notes

If you cannot use the brands that I have listed above, it is NOT a deal breaker.  These are just the best possible and healthiest versions that I have found through all of my years of research and testing.  With regards to canned anything...avoid corn syrup whenever possible.  And your sugars should be the least refined if possible.  Most of all, use your common sense.  If it has too many ingredients and ones you do not recognize as FOOD, avoid it.

Granola won't brown and therefore cannot be used as an indicator of done-ness.  Instead, look for bubbling along sides of ramekin.

Coconut Whipping Cream is optional and recipe can be found here

Paleo Cassava Waffles

July 1, 2016

Paleo Cassava Waffle Img

We offer Gluten Free Breakfast…they say. We offer allergy friendly breakfast menu items…they say. Come and check out our new and exciting GF options…they say.

YOU DON’T HAVE GF WAFFLES???…I SAY!!

My experience at many, many restaurants have left me feeling defeated and depressed. When Gluten Free options are advertised…Especially for Breakfast..I experience dreams and aspirations of a glorious baked good blowout.

Only then I find their options include…EGGS.

REALLY?!

You are lucky if they offer a good GF bread and you really hit the jackpot if there are decent pancakes.

Walking away, I feel empty and dejected….thinking to myself, ‘I could do better.’

I understand eating out grain-free is a pipe dream, but I always hold out for someone brave to make something delicious that is Gluten Free.

And what is worse is I KNOW….I CAN do better. So I did.

And here it is.

Recipe Notes

You will notice there are weights for flours instead of cups. Weighing flours in Gluten Free or Grain Free is ESSENTIAL. Flours are typically heavier than traditional gluten containing flours. Always allow yourself more liquid if batter starts to set up and get too dry.

Mama’s Mocha

April 29, 2016

There are many posts about the ‘Paleo Coffee’ or ‘Buttered Coffee’ or the ‘Bulletproof Coffee’. Indeed, I find this to be a wonderful energy source with the great profile of fats that it contains. BUT, as always I have to push the envelope and ask, “How can I make this even better?”

So here is what I came up with, Mama’s Mocha! I am seriously in love with subtlety of the cacao rounded out with the vanilla. It is seriously delish. Even my kids enjoy their doctored up ‘hot cocoa’.

There is one secret weapon that I do use, Sunfood’s Tempered Cacao Paste. While I love Raw Cacao Powder, I find the paste really allows me to use it in other applications and still retain its rich flavor and smooth texture. Where the powder can be a bit of pain and have that chalky texture that I do not like in my drinks. A little head-up here. It really isn’t a paste…it is more like very hard chocolate candies. So,get out the meat tenderizer and go for it!!
