Chocolate Pumpkin Chiffon Pudding

Posted on October 14, 2014

When fall arrives I pull my pumpkin recipes out of their file. I’m a huge fan of all things pumpkin as well as pumpkin spice. My husband? Not so much. While I add warming cinnamon and nutmeg to my daily (liver cleansing) Dandelion Coffee, he shies away from the flavors of fall.

I made this Pumpkin Chocolate Chiffon Pudding for my beloved, so that he would have a fun fall dessert to partake in while the boys go to town on ... read more →

Paleo Bagels

Posted on September 23, 2014

Paleo Bagels are perfect for a festive low-carb brunch. They’re fantastic toasted, then topped with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, along with tomato or cucumber. If you can consume dairy, Paleo Bagels are wonderful with organic cultured cream cheese.

When I went grain-free in 2001, I thought my love affair with bagels had come to an end. But these grain-free bagels from my third cookbook, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, have made that thought a moot point. Paleo Bagels also make ... read more →

Sunbutter Brownies

Posted on March 21, 2014

Given the number of requests lately that I’ve had for gluten-free recipes that are also nut-free, I decided to create a quick and easy brownie recipe made out of sunflower butter. What is sunflower butter? It is similar to almond butter, however it is made of ground sunflower seeds. These Sunbutter Brownies are a cinch to make and a chocolatey delight.

Salmon Wasabi Burgers

Posted on March 19, 2014

Salmon Wasabi Burgers are perfect if you adore spicy food, and enjoy the pungent, hot taste of wasabi and ginger. I make these spicy burgers with wild caught salmon and just a few other healthy ingredients, and serve them sans buns. When I do need a bun, I use lettuce or other greens as a serving vehicle for my burger recipes, and find that crispy Romaine lettuce works especially well. Boston, or bibb lettuce also works superbly for this purpose.

I serve these Salmon Wasabi Burgers with my Asian Cole Slaw recipe, the flavor combination is absolutely fabulous, and this is how I depicted these fish burgers in the photo above!

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.

Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Posted on March 1, 2014

These super scrumpdidlyicious healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes are made from only seven ingredients. That includes the coconut oil in which you sauté them. The base of these pancakes (one of my super easy breakfast recipes) is cashews –that’s right, no flour, not even almond flour.

Replacing high-carb wheat flour with lower-carb cashews is fantastic for those watching their blood sugar. Cashews also work well in baking (see my Cashew Bread recipe) for folks who are gluten-free, which is another reason I use them.

While these quick and easy pancakes are a fantastic breakfast on a weekend morning, I also like to serve them along with an egg dish on Sunday nights for dinner. Breakfast for dinner is a family favorite in our house, and the boys especially appreciate the change in routine.
