Grain-Free Matzo

Posted on April 11, 2014

For years my friends, family, and readers have been asking me to create a grain-free matzo recipe. This year, instead of throwing matzo together the day of our Seder, I took time during the last few weeks (well prior to Passover) to work on creating an amazing gluten-free, grain-free matzo recipe.

As you can imagine, my house has become a veritable grain-free matzo factory with batch after batch of matzo spread out all over my kitchen counters.

Matzo is an interesting food. ... read more →

Nut Free Chocolate Hamantaschen

Posted on March 10, 2014

It’s that time of year again –Purim. Which means time for Nut Free Chocolate Hamantaschen. This year because so many of you requested it on my Facebook page, I’ve developed Hamantaschen that are not only gluten and grain-free, they are nut-free as well.

Making gluten-free cookies without grains, nuts, butter, and sugar took quite some time to perfect. While I typically use almond flour to make cookies here, I use coconut flour –a very dense flour that is highly absorbent and soaks up tons of liquid and fat. In my experience, coconut flour yields fantastic muffins, cakes, and baked goods. This is the first time that I have developed a gluten-free cookie recipe using coconut flour.

Paleo Date Walnut Bread

Nutrition-packed walnuts and naturally-sweet dates make this Paleo bread the perfect Paleo treat.

This is not your typical Date Walnut Bread, this is Paleo Date Walnut Bread. This bread is purely fruit sweetened, and has no honey, maple syrup, agave or other processed sweeteners. Because of this, the bread is not as sweet, or dessert-like as other breads of mine such as Cranberry Walnut Bread.

During the last year, I’ve worked on lowering the amount of sweeteners in my recipes, and this ... read more →

Paleo Chocolate Chip Scones

Posted on January 28, 2013

Paleo Chocolate Chip Scones are a delicious gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free treat; naturally sweetened with honey.

I really don’t write a lot on my website because:

I’m not a writer.
I figure you all come here for the recipes anyway.
What’s the point? I like short and sweet. Literally.

Every now and then though, I do get the itch to write just a bit. And this recent comment on Facebook tickled my writing fancy:

I absolutely adore your recipes. I’ve been Paleo for over a ... read more →

Celebrate fall with gluten free muffins made from freshly roasted pumpkin and coconut flour, along with a glass of almond milk.

If I had a grain free muffin of the month club November would be pumpkin spice muffins. September would be banana muffins and May would be blueberry muffins. Of course, I have no such club, however, I do love a good healthy muffin.

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 ... read more →

Espresso Fudge Brownies

Of course this ... read more →

Banana Walnut Muffins

Posted on May 12, 2011

I originally posted this date sweetened, gluten free muffin recipe the year before last in my Great Agave Debate post.  Because it was part of something so much bigger, it kinda got lost in the mix.  I’m re-posting it because I think it’s an easy, super tasty, healthy recipe that will please both agave lovers and haters alike.

For more information on agave, please check out my Great Agave Debate post and all of the amazing reader comments and debate ... read more →

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 ... read more →
