Have brown bananas? Yay! Make these banana apple sauce muffins. I used the recipe for Quick & Easy Banana Muffins from Sally’s Baking Addiction as a base and swapped apple sauce for the milk and threw in a cup of chocolate chips. The apple sauce […]
I happen to love rice pudding. There’s something nostalgic from my childhood about it that says comfort food to me (ok, I’d had kind of a bad day). Anyway, I found myself with six cups of cooked basmati rice (don’t ask, I forgot about a bunch I’d tucked in the fridge) and I thought I’d give this a whirl. It’s based on Simply Nourished Livings’ Slow Cooker Rice Pudding Using Cooked Rice recipe (thank you Martha) with some substitutions.
- 6 C cooked rice (I happened to have Basmati)
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 400 mL can of coconut milk
- 400 mL milk (I just filled up the empty coconut milk can with 2%)
- 1/4 C coconut sugar
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 large cinnamon stick
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Put the cooked rice in the slow cooker.
- Add the coconut milk and stir.
- Fill the empty can with 2% and beat it with the 2 eggs until well combined.
- Add the egg and milk to the slow cooker.
- Stir in the coconut sugar, sea salt and vanilla.
- Add the cinnamon stick and cook on low for 2 hours until the liquid is mostly absorbed. Give it a stir now and then if you need to break up the rice.
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, 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, and Rice Dream for the Almond milk. They don’t rise a lot but they are very tasty.
- 1½ C Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Baking Mix
- ½ C organic coconut sugar
- 3 medium ripe bananas
- 2 vegan eggs (2 Tbsp ground flax whisked with 6 Tbsp warm water)
- ¼ C Rice Dream (Silk or Almond Milk are other options)
- ¼ C melted coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 C chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- Line 12 cup muffin tin with parchment paper liners
- In large bowl, combine baking mix and coconut sugar.
- In a Kitchen Aid with the paddle attachment mash the bananas.
- Add the vegan eggs, Rice Dream, coconut oil and vanilla.
- Stir banana egg mixture into the dry ingredients just until moistened.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Fill greased or paper-lined muffin wells half full.
- Bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then remove muffins from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
I started out making this recipe with beef empanadas for a picnic in mind. However, gluten free dough is a little trickier to work with than I bargained for. I made three little ones, cursed (a lot), and then rolled the remaining dough into a […]
So I had this lonely little bag of chickpea flour (about 1 C) and I really try very hard not to waste food so I went looking for something to make. What I found was Joanne and her Fifteen Spatulas and a great little recipe […]
I had a bunch of organic lemons I needed to use and lemon curd is one of my favourite things so I thought I’d make some. Initially I thought I’d do up Ioanna’s fabulous microwave lemon curd thinking it didn’t have eggs in it. I have no issue with eggs but some people do so I thought I’d see if there was an eggless version on the web. And voila, Hannah of Domestic Goddess obliged (thanks Hannah!). You can get Hannah’s recipe here
I found the vegan version to be lighter (in colour) and a bit thinner than the eggy, buttery version I love but all-in-all it was worth it to try it out.
This recipe is a slight adaptation of Nicole’s recipe from Gluten-free on a Shoe String’s awesome Gluten-free Morning Glory Muffin recipe. If you are looking for a great source of tasty gluten-free recipes…her site is one of the best I’ve seen. Thank you Nicole for […]
