I just love browsing Pinterest. Not only for food (although this probably is the key reason I browse), but for clothes, hairstyles, make-up, home improvements, and even articles/posts for my copywriting work. It’s brilliant to be able to create boards of all different things you like and can go back to at a later date. This time I thought I’d make a list of all the Gluten Free recipes I’ve tried (or am planning to try in the coming weeks) and share them with you all so you can enjoy them too!
Let’s get cracking!
Gluten Free Recipes: Blueberry, Lemon & Almond Cake ♥
Green Kitchen Stories is a wonderful blog, full of healthy vegetarian recipes, which are made from natural ingredients and everything that’s good for you. They have some wonderful posts, so I recommend checking them out!
Their Blueberry, Lemon & Almond Cake is a firm favourite with me, my boyfriend, his family and our friends. I often replace the eggs with Chia, and honey with maple syrup to make it Vegan too. It’s absolutely delicious, and perfect for breakfast ♥
Gluten Free Recipes: Peanut Butter & Banana Muffins ♥
The best part about Mique’s recipe on her blog 30 Handmade Days is that you can stuff all the ingredients in a blender and away you go!
Her Peanut Butter & Banana Muffinshave no refined sugar or flour, so they are a great healthy alternative and happen to be completely gluten free. Mique also provides info on other nut butters to try if any of your happy munchers are allergic to peanuts. Add chocolate chips if you want to make it a little sweeter ♥
Gluten Free Recipes: Chocolate Lavender Cupcakes ♥
Aren’t these just beautiful?
I love the look of the chocolate sponge and the pastel lavender buttercream. Even though Aimee at Wallflower Kitchen apologises for her piping skills, I don’t think she has anything to worry about. These Chocolate & Lavender Cupcakeslook utterly divine!
To stick to our Gluten Free recipes theme, you will need to use an alternative flour, such as the gluten-free variety, which Aimee says works fine. She also uses coconut sugar and xylitol, which are sugar alternatives you can use to keep track of those pesky carbs.
♦ To make the chocolate sponge richer, and better for you – in my opinion -, use organic cacao instead of cocoa. The last time I used cacao to make brownies, everyone raved about the difference in flavour. Trust me, it definitely is better.
♦ Coconut Oil can be melted and substituted for the other oils that Aimee mentions. Use the extra virgin organic version, for all those wonderful health benefits!
Gluten Free Recipes: Mango Cheesecake & Raspberry Chia Sauce ♥
Look at this beast!
This beauty is completely vegan and can also be included in our list of gluten free recipes.
This Mango Cheesecake with Raspberry Chia Sauce from Trinity’s Kitchen does have more tricky components to it, such as creamed coconut which – when combined with the mango, nuts, coconut, lemon and maple syrup – replaces the cheese, but don’t get put off! Look at what you’ll get at the end of it:
A nutrient-rich feast of deliciousness – Trinity ♥
Gluten Free Recipes: Blueberry & Chocolate Fudge Layer Pie ♥
Now, this is a cake for those loyal Instagram followers!
Dazzle them with this fantastic-looking gluten free Blueberry & Chocolate Fudge Layer Pie made by Trinity’s Kitchen! It’s packed full of healthy nutrients so you don’t need to feel too bad when tucking into a slice (or 2, if you’re like me).
Similarly to the cheesecake mentioned above, creamed coconut is used in both the top and middle layers. And this time you had the added body-benefit of the cacao powder, an excellent anti-oxidant. But most importantly, it’s a very photogenic cakey!
So, there you have it!
I plan to make the chocolate and lavender cupcakes next, and will post pics when they’re done. Stay tuned!
