Healthy Gluten-Free Strawberry Banana “Cake”

I had a strawberry yogurt incident the other day.  When I thought my strawberry-obsessed daughter would like strawberry yogurt, I was very, very wrong.  This left me with a half dozen containers of strawberry yogurt to use up.  Having finished the holidays, I am “over” all the flavors of pumpkin, gingerbread, and even apple.  I…

Fast Gluten-Free Jam Bars

This recipe is FAST, everyone.  Fast also means easy clean-up, in my book.  I don’t like super sugary foods, and these jam bars fit the bill.  I used blueberry jam because it’s my favorite, but of course you could use blackberry, raspberry, strawberry, apricot, or any other jam flavor you can think of.  The blueberry…

All things Gingerbread!

I’ve been getting into the holiday spirit recently, and over the weekend I decided to have a  gluten-free gingerbread day at my house.  I made a Gluten-Free Gingerbread Loaf, a spicy and deliciously moist gingerbread, and then figured that since I had everything out already, I might as well make gingerbread men with my kids,…

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins

Every Fall and Thanksgiving, I make sure to buy multiple cans of pumpkin puree.  I love pumpkin, and it’s definitely a “Fall Flavor.”  However, after I baked my yummy pumpkin bread (and ate it all) and made a delicious pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, I found myself with an extra can of pumpkin puree. I wasn’t…

Gluten-Free Apple Pie Bars

This week I was craving the flavors of apple pie, without having to make the whole pie from scratch!  Also, I wanted to keep filling my freezer with individually wrapped  frozen, gluten-free treats for the Fall.  Most of what I’ve baked and frozen over the past month is already almost gone.  I also love baking…

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Bread

When the weather finally gets cooler, and pumpkins appear on everyone’s porches, I am ready for all things pumpkin-flavored (except for pumpkin spice coffee drinks; for some reason I don’t like the flavoring in those).  As I’ve mentioned before, I try to limit gluten-free baked carb-type goodies during the week for health reasons.  So, I…

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Oat Muffins

I like to have gluten-free overnight oats during the work week for breakfast, but on the weekends and days off, I usually want something a little different.  That way I don’t get too tired of my go-to breakfast.  I don’t eat a ton of gluten-free carbs because it usually makes me feel too full and…

Gluten-free Caramel Applesauce Cookies

I am still on an apple kick, everyone.  I had more apples left over from our apple picking excursion, even after making the apple crisp.  I decided it was time to make applesauce!  Then, after I made the applesauce, I wondered what to do with it all.  So, I decided to make gluten-free caramel applesauce…

Everything Apple

I love going apple picking in the Fall as a family.  And, of course, you can make so many things from those yummy apples that you picked.  Apple sauce, apple pie, apple crisp, apple strudel, apple cake.  I could think of more, but you get the picture. For my first recipe, I wanted to make…

Gluten-Free baking – Mini Blueberry Banana Muffins

Gluten-free baking can be kind of disappointing when you first venture out into the gluten-free world.  Some baked goods turn out too dry, taste a little off, or the dough is so sticky you get frustrated trying to get it to do anything.  The gluten-free baking mixes available these days make things much easier, but…
