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 […]

I’m on a gluten free cupcake mission, as you can see from the photo above and my other recent posts for Jelly Donut Cupcakes and Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes.
The boys are thrilled when they get home from school and the house looks like its ready for a birthday party. And I’m thrilled to see them with frosting all over their cute little faces.

1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt

These gluten free muffins taste like cinnamon rolls and make the perfect breakfast treat!
One of my favorite readers Courtney recently suggested that I create a gluten free cinnamon roll recipe. She said it would be perfect for Christmas morning. Being smack in the middle of Hanukkah that wasn’t something I had thought about. Thanks Courtney!
So, here’s my little ol’ gluten free Cinnamon Bun Muffin recipe. I hope you all enjoy it during the holidays.

2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey

It’s amazing what you can do without any flour! I made this gluten free chocolate cake using beets. Being “Deceptively Delicious“ I fooled my husband. While my children are game to eat pretty much anything I make, my husband is known as the “picky” eater around here.
Because of his strong critiques and my perfectionist bent, I often find myself testing a new recipe four, five or more times. Though this one I nailed the second time, it was that […]

Recently I was paid a visit by the lovely Eve who not long ago gave up gluten and white sugar. We had tea in my kitchen and chatted about things, oh, I don’t really remember what, just that we had such a pleasant time together. It wasn’t really the content of our conversation (that was great), it was more about making a connection.
Eve emailed me yesterday asking for a gluten free Hamantaschen recipe. While I do have this one from […]

We will be making this gluten free German Chocolate Cake (and many other dishes) in my next cooking class at the Culinary School of the Rockies, March 17th. If you want to sign up there is still some space left.
As we all know, there are many ways to make German Chocolate Cake. An entire chocolate cake can be frosted with a coconut pecan icing as I did a while back in this post. Alternatively, the sides of the cake can […]

Recently, I created a flickr group so that all of you can share photos of recipes that you make from elanaspantry.com. I know that some of you enjoy uploading photos to the comments section and I love seeing your shots of my concoctions. So please, feel free to upload your pictures to the elana’s pantry flickr group. Can’t wait to see ‘em!
The vegan cookies above are pictured with my cashew milk and were quite a lot of fun to make. […]

These gluten free Pumpkin Pie Muffins are, of course, a favorite of my younger son. When he was little, he ate so much pumpkin and winter squash that he turned a slightly orange hue. Luckily, he’s back to normal now.
I often forget how much I love cooking with pumpkin until fall arrives. Well, fall is back and I have been using this vegetable with a vengeance.

This gluten free carrot cake is a healthy dessert for cookouts, picnics and graduation parties.
Today’s post is for of one of my favorite readers, ~M. She requested gluten free carrot cake a while back and I post it now in honor of her recent graduation. I find this to be the perfect time of year for carrot cake.
You may have noticed a new little feature on the sidebar of this website –in computer programming terms it is called the “democracy […]

A decadent dessert recipe that’s high protein, gluten free, dairy free and nut free.
Yes, I continue to roll out the coconut flour recipes. This time it’s gluten free Chocolate Cake. I am having a great time experimenting with this unique flour. I have been doing so for almost two years now and have created a small stockpile of recipes that work well with its light and fluffy texture.
This gluten free, dairy free chocolate cake (nut free too) is a […]

When my husband takes the boys up to the mountains for a night or two, first I call Martha for a hike. Then, I go into soup mode.
For me, soup is all about simplicity –vegetables and protein in a one pot meal. I make soup for dinner and often end up eating it for breakfast and lunch the next day. My husband cringes when I tell him this; he has a strong dislike of leftovers, and has not yet discovered […]

Paleo Walnut Crackers are absolutely fantastic with Fig Tapenade. They’re the perfect party food and I serve them both at intimate summer barbecues and large holiday gatherings as an hors d’oeuvre.
This easy gluten-free cracker recipe also makes a great snack for kids. I often give it to my boys after school with slices of raw organic cheddar cheese, or with organic goat cheese (both boys can eat dairy). The great thing about nut crackers is that they’re low-carb and high-protein, […]

Healthy, gluten free, potato free latke recipe for Hanukkah.
Hanukkah is a day away and that means only one thing: fried food! Lots of it. Yum. I love a good crispy latke, or just about anything fried for that matter.
Below is my favorite recipe for latkes. I have been making these gluten-free latkes for 5 plus years and my family still rejoices each Hanukkah when I serve them.
Butternut Squash Latkes
4 cups butternut squash, peeled and grated
1 small onion, peeled and grated

Every Friday night, I roast a chicken. My children are willing to consume any chicken dish as long as it contains fruit. Such is our unspoken agreement.
This past week, I used apples to lure my children to their protein dish. The combination of rosemary with apples was a natural pairing and the balsamic vinegar, which caramelized during roasting, sweetly permeated the entire chicken.
As I served this up to my family and asked how they liked it, my younger son […]

Gluten Free Banana Bread. Gluten Free Banana Cake. What’s the difference?
Last night we went out with our friends Debbie and Mike. They are quite the non-profit duo. Debbie founded the timely and super innovative Wellness Initiative, while Mike runs Progress Now. Two cutting edge organizations out to make the world a better place. What could be cooler?
Here’s what. Their son Lee will celebrate his first birthday next week. And they have another little one due any […]

Fall is a full time of year; especially for a Jewish family with children in a Waldorf school. Last week we celebrated Rosh Hashannah (Jewish New Year), yesterday was Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and this coming Friday is Succot, the fall harvest festival celebrating the bounty provided to the Jews during 40 years wandering the dessert after the Exodus from Egypt. Whew.
During this time of year the Jewish holidays come unremittingly, like waves beating against the shore, […]
