Gluten Free Recipes

Many people now days are jumping on the No Gluten bandwagon. As you may have read in my previous post about My Lifestyle Change Journey I not only went gluten free, but I also went chemical free. I am an all natural wild woman now. In that, I lost 10 pounds in my first month and I am more healthy now than I have been in my entire life. I will make another post updating everyone on how my diet and body is doing. For now, I am going to kindly provide you with some of my favorite recipes that I like to make now. Everything is 100% gluten free and healthy. No chemicals, nothing bad for you.

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins: 

These are a hit at my family's weekly Sunday dinners. If I show up without these muffins I will hear the wrath of the family. Super easy to make and great with a glass of milk.
  • 2 Bananas
  • 1 Cup Smuckers Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup all natural Honey
  • 1/2 tsp. aluminum free Baking Soda
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Pinch of Cinnamon
Super easy, just mix everything together in a mixer until incorporated and put into a muffin pan and bake on 350 for 15 minutes. I like to lather some butter on top when they are fresh out of the oven. >br>

Chocolate Chip Cookies: 

When you have gone gluten free it seems like all you crave are those darn chocolate chip cookies and a huge glass of milk! Well, these are the worlds best cookies. These are a hit with my family and friends as well. Even my non gluten free friends love them!
  • 1 3/4 Cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour, I use Bob Mills
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. aluminum free Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 3/4 Cups Chocolate Chips. I use Enjoy Life brand's mini chips.
  • 1/2 Cup Butter, softened
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
Mix together Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, and Salt. Set aside in a bowl. In a mixing bowl, incorporate Butter and Sugar together. Add egg. Slowly add in the dry mixture until everything is mixed together. Add in the chocolate chips. Scoop spoonfuls on a baking sheet and bake for 6 minutes on 325. If you have an electric oven you may need to alter this. Probably on 350 for 6-8 minutes. Store excess batter in the fridge while the rest is baking. Enjoy :)

These are my two favorite recipes. I will share more at a later time. I hope you enjoy these. Please comment with any success you have had. Or failure. . Also, if theres anything you want me to try to make gluten free, let me know. I love experimenting. I actually have a gluten free angel food cake in the oven right now! Namaste! :)
