Nothing says “fall” like the smell of fresh pumpkin bread wafting from the oven. This lusciously moist, gluten free, dairy free pumpkin quick bread is made with high protein almond flour, and came about by popular demand.

Granny Smith Apple Crisp

Posted on October 6, 2011

Baked green apples topped with high protein almond flour crisp; low carb and low sugar, sweetened with xylitol.

Here’s a lovely seasonal treat –gluten free apple crisp that’s simple and easy to make with very few, and very healthy ingredients. This recipe for Granny Smith Apple Crisp is particularly low carb because I use the low glycemic sweetener xylitol.

This Paleo recipe for banana bread is a high protein gluten free treat that is quick and easy to make. When I posted my recipe for Paleo Bread, the feedback was so amazing that I knew I’d need to come up with more gluten free Paleo bread recipes for you all.

Goji Power Bars

These gluten free Goji Power Bars were a hit at the gym the other day.

My fellow gym rats were delighted when I brought these Paleo friendly, high protein, gluten free snacks to the gym last week. The consensus? These gluten free power bars hit the spot.

Made with healthy, high protein almond flour and nutritious goji berries, the gang wolfed these down, then asked for more. I promised them I would post this recipe for gluten free power bars and so […]

Paleo Bread

Posted on August 30, 2011

This gluten-free bread is easy to make, tastes great, and is full of nutrient dense ingredients.

Gluten-free isn’t necessarily healthy, especially when it comes to bread.  Here’s a gluten-free bread recipe, made of high protein ingredients that won’t leave you dragging.  I’m loving every slice that comes from this new Paleo diet friendly bread recipe.

This bread is just a bit lighter and fluffier than my other breads.  It has a nice nutty flavor from the flax meal which makes it almost […]

Lemon Almond Biscotti

Posted on August 19, 2011

I’m a big fan of gluten free cookies, especially gluten free biscotti.

These Paleo friendly gluten free treats are a great addition to a high protein breakfast and also perfectly suited for dunking in healthy coffee for an afternoon snack that won’t leave you dragging.  My children like them too.  So do their friends. I wish I could certify certain gluten free desserts that I make as “kid friendly,” like some sort of good housekeeping seal of approval. Alas, no such luck.

If […]

Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake

Posted on August 18, 2011

This simple gluten free shortcake recipe is easy enough to make with your children

One summer evening as I baked countless batches of gluten free cookies, my older son popped into the kitchen. Determined to join me in my culinary adventures, he decided to make gluten free strawberry shortcake from scratch (as in using no cookbook or recipe). The twist?  He’s a chocolate lover, so he made Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake.

As you may know, Jewish mothers tend to think of their sons […]

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Posted on July 29, 2011

These peanut butter cookies are gluten free, grain free and vegan to boot.  I based them on Heidi’s Peanut Butter Cookie recipe over at 101 Cookbooks, one of my favorite websites.  Though I did cut the amount of sweetener in half and make a couple of other changes.

I have been on a bit of a peanut butter kick lately.  I didn’t eat peanut butter for a long time.  I just didn’t feel great when I ate it, however, I’m feeling […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Posted on July 18, 2011

Last night I had a hunkering for gluten free peanut butter cookies. I went over to Elise’s site, Simply Recipes, and found a yummy looking recipe for gluten-filled Peanut Butter Cookies. I experimented a bit, made a couple of changes to her recipe and came up with a nice gluten free cookie dough. I then decided that it might be fun to make a gluten free peanut butter and jelly cookie.

So here you have it, high protein, gluten free peanut […]

Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies: Video

In this video Lillian demonstrates in her own inimitable, wacky way, how to make gluten free cookies from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. For more great video recipes make sure to head over […]

Espresso Fudge Brownies

Posted on June 14, 2011

I was working my way through the Cook’s Illustrated website the other night and came across an amazing recipe for Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies.  As soon as I laid eyes on that recipe I knew I had to create a high protein, gluten free version.  While my husband enjoys all of my gluten free chocolate recipes, this is his fave.  He even left a special love note on the fridge for me late last night after sampling them.

Of course this […]

Chocolate Almond Joy Bars

Posted on June 10, 2011

These gluten free Chocolate Almond Joy Bars were inspired by Carrie of GingerLemonGirl.com who wrote a recipe for Almond Joy Impossible Pie.  Who doesn’t like the combination of chocolate, almonds and coconut in the form of a high protein, gluten free treat?

I don’t generally discuss nutrition because I assume most people who find this site know that that my recipes are different than most other gluten free offerings.  Ingredients such as almond flour and coconut flour do not compare to […]

Apple Blackberry Crisp

Posted on June 3, 2011

There’s nothing like baked fruit desserts in summer.  With seasonal, fresh, luscious ingredients, this gluten free Apple Blackberry Crisp is the perfect healthy and scrumptious, warm weather delight.  When finished off with a high protein almond flour topping, baked treats such as this are superfood in the form of dessert.  Now what’s better than that?

Our summer started last Thursday when the boys finished school, and we are having an excellent time thus far.  Our house has been the setting for […]

Almond Flour Muffins

Posted on April 4, 2011

I have been a huge fan of Michael Ruhlman’s book Ratio for quite some time.  His work really came to life for me when I saw him speak at Blogher Food last year.  He conveys his love of good food in a passionate manner, which I find compelling.So, when my friend Silvana invited me to participate in this month’s Ratio Rally, I said yes, even though I have not really baked using ratios and scales.  I am definitely a numbers […]

Posted on March 15, 2011

I’ve been on a gluten free Hamantaschen rampage the last few days and these are my latest and greatest.  I’ll be serving them at today’s Purim party for my younger son’s Chavurah.  We’re having 7 families over in a little while to celebrate Purim and the story of Esther.

I hope you all enjoy these gluten free Chocolate Raspberry Hamantaschen!

Irish Soda Bread

Posted on March 10, 2011

As a Jew, Irish Soda Bread would not be something that comes naturally to me.  However, over the years, I’ve received numerous requests for a gluten free, dairy free, gum free, high protein Irish Soda Bread.  Well, here you have it.

Given that all things Irish are not my native habitat, I had to do some research to actually figure out what Irish Soda Bread is.  Here’s what Wikipedia had to say about it:

Soda bread are a variety of quick bread […]

Muesli Scones

Posted on March 4, 2011

Did you know that I am obsessed with all things muesli?  I have a recipe for muesli bread in my book, and I make just about everything else I can with muesli.  While traditionally muesli has oats in it, I make mine grain free, as I follow as diet that is very close to Primal/Paleo.

So what exactly is muesli?  According to Wikipedia, it is a “popular breakfast cereal based on uncooked rolled oats, fruit and nuts. It was developed around […]

Easy Black and White Cake

Posted on February 18, 2011

Looking for a quick and easy gluten free chocolate cake? This one is so simple that you can make it one pot and it doesn’t need a drop of frosting.  I’m hooked on this thick, fudgey, yet cakey treat.  I made it a couple of weeks ago during our Super Bowl party and it was gobbled up in mere minutes by our boisterous gang of guests.

If you are not in the mood for white chocolate, or wish to make a […]

Multi “Grain” Crackers

Posted on February 15, 2011

The recipe for these gluten free crackers comes from my friend Betsy

Don’t be confused by these gluten free Multi “Grain” Crackers.  Because they are in fact gluten free and grain-free.  That’s right, these crackers don’t contain grains.  What are they made of?  They contain a multitude of high protein, high fiber superfoods including almonds, flax and hemp.

So as you can see, even though these are called Multi “Grain” Crackers, I have not started eating grains again.  And yes, I’ve been […]
