Hollandaise and Faux Béarnaise | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Hollandaise and Faux Béarnaise So… here is the recipe for gluten-free, casein-free Hollandaise and faux Béarnaise sauce I promised you!   I love Hollandaise sauce but can’t eat the regular stuff anymore.  So we’ve adjusted it to be gluten-free and casein-free yet still rich, creamy and decadent. Instead of butter and cream we’ll be using coconut fat and ghee.  I’ve spent a lot of time over the years getting it just right. Yum! You really need a mini-prep for this because a blender is too big unless you double or triple the recipe. Since we are cooking for two, we don’t make a lot of it.  But it does freeze really well.  So you could make a bigger batch, freeze it and pull it out...

homemade gluten-free spiced zucchini muffins

Spiced Zucchini Muffins | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Summer = zucchini, zucchini, zucchini! I’m actually not a huge fan of it sautéed or grilled but always love baked zucchini goodies, like zucchini bread muffins.   See my delicious gluten-free recipe for chocolate zucchini muffins, too. Yum! There are so many recipes for zucchini bread out there, but I really wanted to try this spiced version from Martha Stewart because of all the spices in it. We love spice! And I prefer making muffins because it’s easier and quicker than making a loaf of bread. So to make this healthier, gluten-free, dairy-free and casein-free version, we change a few things: use a high-quality extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil homemade vanilla extract (unstrained so specs of vanilla bean are floating around in there) HEB organic...

gluten-free recipe for blueberry muffins

Blueberry Muffins | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

All-Purpose GF Muffin Recipe I love the fresh berries, especially blueberries! And I don’t think there is anything better than a blueberry muffin filled with fresh ripe blueberries. There are many recipes out there for delicious blueberry muffins but my challenge is to not only make them gluten-free but casein-free as well.   And then I came across a perfect recipe for all types of gluten-free desserts!   I use a bean based gluten-free flour from Bob’s Red Mill, which is healthier than most all-purpose flours.  It has a little more calcium than other white flour blends and fiber.   Plus it doesn’t contain xanthan gum, which is disruptive to gut bacteria. This is a quick and easy recipe, too.  I didn’t even use the...

Banana Oat Muffins #vegan #glutenfree #caseinfree

Vegan Banana Oat Muffins I’ve been working on a basic breakfast muffin recipe that is quick and easy to make as well as healthy and nutritious without eggs because I know so many people have a sensitivity to eggs. This one for vegan banana oat muffins is my favorite so far. Some Celiacs are sensitive to oats as well so if you are newly diagnosed check with your doctor about adding oats to your diet. I like using oat and sorghum flour and walnuts and rolled oats for the nutrients and fiber, but I’m pretty sure you can adjust the flours and nuts to your preference. It just takes a little practice and patience getting used to new flours when baking. What makes this recipe...

ingredients for making carrot cake muffins

Carrot Cake Muffins | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Muffins Who doesn’t love carrot cake?  And especially in the form of an easy-to-eat muffin! We love making homemade muffins from scratch.  They are much healthier than store bought muffins filled with preservatives, vegetable oil, and who knows what else. Some of our favorite muffins are filled with hidden veggies and a little more fiber filled flours, too.  Like Spiced Zucchini Muffins and the ever popular Chocolate Zucchini Muffins and Blueberry Muffins! And my weird little creation that turned out to be really yummy combo of sweet and savory – Sweet Potato Casserole Muffins. I found this recipe for carrot oatmeal muffins on allrecipes.com.  Then made a healthier gluten-free, casein-free version that tastes just as decadent. What we substituted to clean it up: a bean blend...

Banana Oat Muffins | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Banana Oat Muffins Today I’m sharing a recipe for gluten-free and dairy-free muffins.   I’ve been making different types of muffins and breakfast bars almost every Sunday for my husband’s breakfast during the week.   Some of his favorites are the chocolate zucchini muffins, sweet potato brownies, and cranberry oatmeal cookies (they make great bars, too). Even though he isn’t gluten-intolerant, I want them to be healthier than stuff you get at the store with preservatives, additives, hydrogenated oils and refined white sugar. I make them gluten-free and dairy-free so I can have a couple, too. He used to eat boxed mix cakes for breakfast in his bachelor days so we’ve come a long way.  He’s a picky eater but they got his stamp of approval!...

gluten-free chocolate zucchini muffins

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins These gluten-free, dairy-free  chocolate zucchini muffins are so easy to make and really delicious.   The hubs definitely approved of these for breakfast.   There are lots of flavor and nutritional goodies packed into a chocolaty muffin! I love hiding veggies inside of a sweet treat.  We have a wonderful recipe for spiced zucchini muffins, sweet potato brownies and carrot cake muffins.   I also like using sorghum flour and oat flour in the recipe because they contain dietary fiber. Most people with Celiac disease or on a gluten-free diet miss a good source of dietary fiber, especially if they turn to processed foods. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye, which are also really good sources of dietary...
