I know, I know. These look more like a Peanut Butter Cup than a Kit Kat Bar but without a proper chocolate mold this was what we came up with! These gluten free Kit Kat “Bars” taste like the real thing and are not that difficult to make. No oven required – just a blender and a microwave. For a dairy free (and all-around healthier) version, check out the recipe at Fork and Beans that inspired our own.
These ginger cookies have just the right amount of snap and are loaded with sugar and spice and everything nice. Warm from the oven, they are soft and chewy and they harden up just a bit as they cool. If you can keep them around, they’ll last for days in an airtight container. This is an adaptation of a recipe that a friend of ours gave us years ago. Thanks Bernice!
Been missing Ferrero Rocher since you went gluten free? Well Geoff has. It used to be one of his holiday favorites, so this year we decided to try to make some that were gluten free. The results were incredible – although perhaps not as pretty as those little gold and silver foil-wrapped balls of chocolate! We did, however, feed them to some unsuspecting gluten eaters who all said they liked these even better than the original. In fact, they
ordered requested we make more! If you like nutella and chocolate then this is the recipe for you!
I wish I could photograph the crunch and the sweet toffee goodness of this almond roca – not to mention the buttery caramel scent of my kitchen at the moment! This candy is easy to make – it takes about an hour – and tastes like the real thing. You can add chocolate if you want, but we like it just like this!
This recipe came from a friend of ours from Vancouver B.C.. Thanks Carole!
With American Thanksgiving just around the corner, Geoff and I thought that – even though it feels like midwinter here – we’d post some of our favorite fall recipes for our readers further south. As always, all of the recipes are gluten free. Happy Thanksgiving!
Great for parties, game nights, family movie nights, or even as a gift, these nuts ‘n bolts are a spicy, salty, and extra crunchy treat. Your GLUTEN-EATING friends will LOVE THEM and your GLUTEN-FREE friends will LOVE YOU for making them! The recipe makes a big batch so you may want to half it. However, they do last for up to three weeks in the cupboard and can be kept even longer in the freezer.
These scalloped potatoes are cheesy and creamy and made completely without flour. They make a great side dish with ham and reheat wonderfully in the microwave, oven, or on the stove top. Continue reading
These muffins are like a light & fluffy bowl of oatmeal! Make them on the weekend and enjoy them warm from the oven, and then keep the rest in the freezer for a quick on-the-go meal. They are hearty and wholesome and the coconut flour and fruit filling keep them super moist.
Oats lower cholesterol, are an excellent source of plant protein, and good source of iron. However, not everyone who has celiac disease can tolerate oats, even when the oats are gluten free. If you have questions, talk to your physician or dietitian.
One day when Geoff and I were out for dinner, the waitress walked by our table with an amazing looking beef dip. Geoff instantly wanted one so a few days later we decided to try to tackle a gluten free version. The resulting recipe is one of our favorites. The roast is really good on its own – nicely browned and full of beef flavour – and the jus is salty and savory with just the right amount of spice. For a beef dip, we use Udi’s baguettes. The crust is a bit hard for dipping and eating, so we pour the jus over the sandwich and eat it with a knife and fork. It’s one of the best beef dips we’ve ever had.
We love our crusty breads but we have been searching for a really great recipe for gf sandwich bread. Then Geoff’s massage therapist – the BEST massage therapist – told him about this recipe she’d found on the Gluten Free Real Food website. IT IS FANTASTIC! The crust is crusty but not hard and the crumb is soft and malleable with lots of good air pockets. It produces a good size loaf (bigger than our old bakery wheat bread), slices thin or thick, freezes well and can be lightly thawed in the microwave. Oh, and it tastes great too – sweet, salty, and a bit nutty. As for shelf life, it’s still good on day two and just starts to lose its flavour and fluff on day three – not bad for a no preservative bread of any kind!
