Gluten-free, Vegan Chocolate Brownie Muffins

Gluten-free, Vegan Chocolate Brownie Muffins

This started out as a hunt for the best gluten-free brownie recipe. I started with Simply Recipes Gluten-free Fudgy Chocolate Brownies and ad libbed a little because I thought the batter looked a little too thick and I opted to leave the chocolate chips whole […]

Vegan, Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Vegan, Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Vegan, gluten free banana chocolate chip muffins, mmmm. The original recipe came from The Real Food Dietitians recipe for Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins but I made the vegan version, swapped in Bob’s Red Mill Baking Mix for the flour, coconut oil for the oil, […]

Gluten-free, Dairy-free Meatballs

Gluten-free, Dairy-free Meatballs

Continuing on down the gluten-free, dairy-free road I decided to have a go at remaking the meatballs that my kids love. As it turned out this was going to be a tall order because normally I just use Lipton’s onion soup mix, bread crumbs, milk […]

Gluten-free Oatmeal Bread

Gluten-free Oatmeal Bread

I’ve started to play around with gluten-free baking and today’s experiment is gluten-free oatmeal bread. Initially, I was going to make the oatmeal bread from “How it all Vegan” but I was intrigued by this recipe for Gluten-free Vegan Oat Bread from Rhian’s Recipes (Woot […]

Gluten-free Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Experiment #2)

Gluten-free Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Experiment #2)

Ok, so the vegan gluten-free chocolate chip cookies I made were a tasty experiment but the coconut oil made them quite hard if you over cooked them even a smidgen. This time I tried a variation of Meaningful Kitchen’s The Best Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie […]
