  • Pumpkin Seed Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I have a new favorite flour – pumpkin seed flour.  I’ve been experimenting with it for a month or so now and I just can’t get enough!  Oh, and you won’t believe how well it pairs with maple syrup – it just happens to be maple syrup season in these parts! There’s so much to love about pumpkin seed flour: I can make it at home with my coffee grinder; Pumpkin seeds are high in iron and zinc; Pumpkin seed flour is a nut-free replacement for almond flour; They add ...
  • Gingerbread Cupcakes

    I am so excited to be hosting the final week of Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free’s Gluten-Free Holiday event!  This week we’re focusing on gluten-free holiday desserts AND I’m giving away two fabulous cookbooks! First I must share my recipe for this week's Gluten-Free Holiday Desserts!  I've been saving this extra-special recipe since last Christmas! Who says you can't eat cupcakes at Christmas? My kids LOVE cupcakes. Last year I stumbled across a Martha Stewart recipe for ...
  • Pumpkin Granola

    Since Thanksgiving seems to center around pumpkin, I thought I would share my most recent recipe for Pumpkin Granola. It’s a great way to switch up your standard gluten-free granola, and it’s so delish! Granola is a favorite of Pete’s. I can’t count the times I’ve gone to the granola jar, only to find it’s empty…two days after I made it! Pete eats it for breakfast, as a mid-day treat, and as a bedtime snack! Pumpkin Granola We like to eat our granola with cold almond ...
  • Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (Or Zombie Eyeball Cupcakes)

    Cupcakes are a regular occurrence at our house.  Between birthday parties and school parties, it seems I'm making them every couple of weeks. It's okay though, because I’ve found a few ways to make sure my kids are eating healthier cupcakes. It’s pretty easy to healthify a recipe! Here’s how I did it: I used quinoa flour to add some protein (we make our cupcakes nut-free for the sake of other kids). I limited the amount of starch. I used coconut oil and full-fat coconut ...
  • Pumpkin and Pear Streusel Muffins

    I’ve been on a major pumpkin kick lately.  It seems I just can’t get enough of pumpkin.  And since it’s pumpkin season, it seems to be the one vegetable on everyone’s mind (or is it a fruit?). Pumpkin is jam-packed with vitamins, nutrients and anti-oxidants.  Not to mention it’s low in calories.  Sounds like a perfect veggie to add to just about anything!     This is a perfect Fall muffin.  When I first created it, Bartlett pears were at their peak.  If ...
  • Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, and Dairy-Free Blueberry Buckle

    I don’t know about you, but I am in love with blueberries. They are a powerful little berry. They’re super high in antioxidants, and did you know they actually have anti-aging effects? That's why we start each day with a shot of organic blueberry juice. My two-year old loves snacking on frozen blueberries. Her fingers and mouth get stained and stay stained most of the day. Her clothes undoubtedly get spotted with blue smears, as does the floor. Sometimes I even find a smooshed ...
  • Fabulous Finds: Healthy and Delicious Breakfast Recipes

    Lately I’ve been in a breakfast funk. It seems oatmeal and peanut butter slathered toast just don’t belong in warmer temperatures. Fortunately for me and my breakfast slump, Ricki Heller of Diet, Dessert N Dogs fame recently shared her third e-book. Thank goodness because I needed some ideas and inspiration! Ricki’s e-book, aptly called Good Morning Breakfasts Without Gluten, Sugar, Eggs, or Dairy , is jam-packed (pardon the pun) with amazing recipes and information. If you ...
  • Easy Gluten-Free Living: The Preschooler Version (and Vanilla Cupcakes)

    Living with gluten-free preschoolers is a lot easier than you might think. Callum, our almost five-year-old, has been living gluten-free and dairy-free for a year and a half. His two-year-old sister has never had gluten. Callum’s diagnosis was probably the hardest part. I knew how to live with a gluten-free husband, but I wasn’t sure where to begin with gluten-free kids. The first decision we made was a tough one. We decided to become a gluten-free family. No gluten in our house, ...
  • Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies (With A Twist)

    One cannot have enough cookie recipes. Sometimes I’m in the mood for double chocolate chip cookies and sometimes I’m in the mood for peanut butter cookies. This time though, I had a hankering for classic chocolate chip cookies. We’ve redefined the word classic in our house. We take classic and twist it four times. Once to make it gluten-free, a second time to make it dairy-free, a third time to make it egg-free, and a fourth time to make it a little bit healthier. I jumped ...
  • Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free’s Perfect Bread Goes Vegan

    This is our new favourite bread. It's gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free bread. Isn't it gorgeous? If you read my recent Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger post, you'll know that I tried one of Amy Green's new bread recipes. There are a few things I love about Amy’s recipe for The Perfect Bread: 1. The recipe calls for her flour mix. 2. It’s made in a regular sized loaf pan. 3. It rises nice and high, just like gluten-filled bread does. 4. It’s really user-friendly and it ...
