Gluten free tart crust, made with only four ingredients; the perfect base for a variety of fillings.
I love making gluten free crusts with almond flour. This gluten free flour is super easy to use, high in heart healthy protein and fats, and of course delicious.
If you wish to experiment and try to make a gluten free pie crust out of this tart crust, feel free. Just be sure to stop back by and let us know how it works.
I am […]

Easy gluten free pumpkin bread recipe spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves.
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.
So many of you left comments on my Paleo Bread post requesting a healthy pumpkin bread, that I was moved to make yet another Paleo quick bread for all of you.

I was recently invited to develop an appetizer recipe for the Mushroom Masters, a global competition that helps celebrate National Mushroom Month (September). Since I love mushrooms, and they are so easy to prepare gluten free and Paleo, I jumped at the chance to participate.
For the competition, I created the recipe for these Herb Stuffed Mushrooms –they make a lovely gluten free appetizer for a cocktail party or nice nosh for a gluten free brunch. While this convenient finger food looks […]

This recipe was adapted from one by Pam Vagnieres‘ in an article called Make Your Own Protein Bars that ran last year in my local newspaper The Daily Camera. These high protein, gluten free power bars are easy to make and remind me of a Lärabar, though these are super fresh since they’re homemade, and they’re also not quite as sweet.
My boys and their friends loved these bars and gobbled them up during spring break, when our house was boys […]

This Gefilte Fish recipe is based on one by Ellyn Goodrich at epicurious.com, called “Alaskan Halibut and Salmon Gefilte Fish Terrine.” While Goodrich’s recipe makes a gefilte fish “loaf,” mine is for traditional (yet gluten-free) gefilte fish balls (like my Bubby made) only with more vegetables, so that they are a bit lighter and healthier than the standard gefilte-fare. What are gefilte fish?
Here is Wikipedia’s definition: “Yiddish Gefüllte Fisch (Gefilte fish;from German gefüllte “stuffed” fish) (Hebrew: dagim memula’im, literally “filled fish”) […]

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 […]

These healthier gluten free brownies are the perfect Super Bowl snack. My family loved them and I’m hoping my guests will too when I serve these treats along with my gluten free Super Bowl Cake Pops come next Sunday when the Packers take on the Steelers and I have my big, bad, gluten free Super Bowl party.
These brownies use high fiber coconut flour and are based on a recipe by Michelle from Gluten Free Fix; her recipe is called Gluten Free Fudge […]

A perfect addition to your Paleo Thanksgiving.
I’ve been making this mashed cauliflower recipe for several years now. So I must be on the same page as my readers –when I posted my Cauliflower Rice recipe I received suggestions from Jose and several others to make mashed cauliflower.
This cauliflower dish (which I make in place of mashed potatoes) is perfect for a gluten free, Paleo Thanksgiving. I like to have something mashed and gooshy at Thanksgiving not only as a […]

The recipe for this gluten-free Cinnamon Apple Cake comes from one of my favorite bloggers, AndreAnna “The Primal Matriarch” and her food blog, Life as a Plate. I adapted my version of her recipe, Apple Spice Bread, eliminating the step of pre-cooking the apples, adding a ton of cinnamon, and making a couple other changes as well.
I think that you’ll be delighted whether you go for her original recipe or my interpretation of it below. By the way, this is […]

In honor of fall, I spent several days last week in a pumpkin “trance,” experimenting with various iterations of gluten free baked goods containing pumpkin.
At first, I had terrible failures. Suffice it to say that my pumpkin cookies and pumpkin scones while edible, were not at all blog worthy. Next, I decided to make pumpkin loaves –while they didn’t look too pretty, they were delicious. Finally, I made these gluten free pumpkin bars, which my 10 year old declared “addictive.” Every day last […]

Spunky Coconut’s Chicken Meatballs!
This giveaway is now closed.
This recipe comes from The Spunky Coconut Cookbook by my adorable friend, Kelly Brozyna of the spunkycoconut.com.
Last weekend, between all of my writing deadlines, I snuck out of the house, away from the computer to meet up with Kelly and her family at the Boulder Farmer’s Market. We grabbed some grub from the market, splashed around with her gorgeous daughters in the creek, then walked around downtown together for a while.
How refreshing! I […]

I’m eating one of these Spicy Power Bars as I type this. I’m slightly obsessed with them. Because they remind me of my past.
About 20 years ago, when I was living in New York City and had just hooked up with my adorable husband, I became very interested in Ayurveda. One of the amazing practitioners that I learned from, Pratima Raichur, had created her own version of a healing tonic, referred to in Ayurvedic circles as chyawanprash. Her product was […]

I mentioned in my Stuffed Peppers post the other day that I would give you all the recipe for my Cauliflower “Rice.” Around here, we call it Cauli Rice, and I’m super happy that my husband and children like to eat it as much as I do. Cauli Rice is a tasty, nutritious, grain-free, alternative to white rice for those of us that follow a Primal or Paleo eating plan. Works for the Atkins people too.
I’ve been making Cauliflower Rice […]

Here’s a quick and easy dessert that will wow your guests whether they’re gluten free or “full of gluten”. This Flourless Chocolate Cupcake recipe is dark and rich –my husband absolutely loved it.
He is really benefiting from the Elana’s Pantry month of cupcakes, given that he is my primary taste tester. And thankfully he enjoyed this treat as much as, or even more than, the last (Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes) –though that’s not much of a surprise since he’s quite the chocolate […]

In honor of Celiac Awareness Month, I have decided to make May my own personal cupcake month. Today’s post is Jelly Donut (or Doughnut) Cupcakes, and I’m going to attempt to do a gluten free cupcake recipe every time I post in May –wish me luck!
These gluten free Jelly Donut Cupcakes are filled with yummy raspberry jam and oozing with fruity goodness. My husband liked them so much that he took the entire batch to his office to (hopefully) share […]

Making maror for your Passover Seder is a cinch (even though it can be just a tad dangerous).
Let me explain… While DIY maror is a lot of fun, be sure to proceed with caution. I make my maror in the food processor; danger can arise when you open the lid and the trapped horseradish fumes escape up your nostrils –and severe sinus relief (or burning) can occur. So be careful!
1 horseradish root (about 4 inches), peeled and chopped
1-2 tablespoons […]

Vegan Chocolate Espresso Power Bars made with pecans, dates and decaf espresso.
Who doesn’t enjoy a good power bar? One that is easy to travel with and renders a healthy snack on the go?
These gluten free Espresso Power Bars have a delicious espresso-chocolate-vanilla-ish flavor that makes them equally satisfying as a snack or dessert. I found mine were just a tad crumbly, you may need to add a dash of water to help yours hold together well.

This gluten free Double Chocolate Orange Torte will make a nice treat for Passover, which is rapidly approaching! My family, however, needed no holiday or excuse to devour the entire cake on a Sunday afternoon. This treat is easy to make and even easier to eat. Go ahead, try some and see for yourself.
Double Chocolate Orange Torte
½ cup chocolate chunks
½ cup blanched almond flour
¼ cup cacao powder
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
3 large eggs
½ cup agave nectar or honey
½ cup grapeseed […]

This beet hummus recipe comes from Elise over at simplyrecipes.com. She is one of my favorite bloggers and I was lucky enough to hear her speak at the last Blogher Food conference. I myself, would not have ever thought of combining beets into a hummus type dip, so, leave it to Elise. She is the inspiration for me on many fronts.
When it comes to beets though, I find that there is a bit of a love-hate relationship with them –as […]

When I saw this recipe for a purely fruit sweetened carrot cake from Heidi over at 101cookbooks.com I just knew I would want to make it into some sort of gluten free version. So I did.
Last weekend our friends Chris and Larry came over to sit out on our porch and read the Sunday New York Times with us while soaking in some good Colorado sunshine and we enjoyed these descendants of Heidi’s carrot, banana, date yumminess. Here it is […]
