Recipe: Amarula Muffins (High Protein, Low Sugar, Gluten-free)

Recipe: Amarula Muffins (High Protein, Low Sugar, Gluten-free)

Look, I found yet another way to make moccachocarula muffins! Maybe most people wouldn’t care, but I do. And if you’re into stuff with lots of protein, no gluten and no added sugar (except what’s in the Amarula and chocolate, if you add chocolate), then it might be up your alley, too. If not, fear not. I’ll run out of … Read more

Recipe: Hazelnut-Cocoa Granola Bars (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

I adapted this recipe from a more sugary one I found in Martha Stewart Living. Because these are low in sugar, they’re a bit more crumbly that the Martha Stewart version. (Sugar works as a glue.) But they’re still super tasty. If you’d like to up the cocoa/chocolate flavor, substitute chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips for some of the dried fruit. … Read more

Recipe: Chocolate Protein Muffins (Gluten-free, high protein)

Recipe: Chocolate Protein Muffins (Gluten-free, high protein)

I still have protein powder in my pantry, and no intention of ever drinking it. So I made more protein powder muffins this week, this time gluten-free. I used millet and buckwheat, the latter of which gives the muffins a hearty, whole-wheat-like flavor. I ground my own millet flour and left some of it coarse for texture. If you don’t … Read more

Recipe: Buckwheat Chocolate-Chip Muffins (vegan, gluten-free)

Remember that zucchini glut this summer? We had so many I ended up freezing some so I wouldn’t have to deal with it. Last week, I took some grated zucchini from the freezer and made these muffins with buckwheat flour. Yum! Supplies measuring cups and spoons 1 mixing bowls and mixing spoon blender or food processor muffin tin with 12 … Read more

Recipe: Zucchini-Berry Muffins (paleo, gluten-free)

Dilemma of the day: Amazon has the 6-inch HD fire on sale for $69 today. Do I buy it? I have a first generation Kindle Fire that’s pretty much only good for reading e-books and watching Netflix now. Browsing the web is impossible. But I’m also annoyed that Amazon doesn’t offer any support for the first-generation Fire anymore, so going … Read more

Recipe: Double-Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (gluten-free, vegan)

Recipe: Double-Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (gluten-free, vegan)

  We still have a glut of zucchinis. By the end of the summer, I’ll have figured out a dozen variations on zucchini muffins. Heck, maybe I’ll even try putting summer squash in cookies. These muffins are moist, fudgy and extremely chocolatey. The lack of gluten makes them a little more delicate than a grain-based muffin. Enjoy! Supplies measuring cups … Read more

Recipe: Gluten-free, Grain-free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Recipe: Gluten-free, Grain-free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

The weather hasn’t cooled, so I’m still finding myself unable to eat all the bananas in the fruit bowl before they start turning too ripe to eat. (It doesn’t help that I consider any banana with no green on the skin “too ripe.”) Well, it’s time for more banana muffins! Just to keep some sort of variety in my life, I decided to make this … Read more

Recipe: Slow Cooker Shepherd’s Pie (Gluten-Free)

Recipe: Slow Cooker Shepherd’s Pie (Gluten-Free)

Usually I prefer slow cooker recipes that involve minimal prep. Open a few packages, chop a few veggies, throw them in the pot, and go! This is not one of those recipes. It has three separate steps after you’ve chopped the veggies: prepare the potatoes on the stove top, prepare the filling on the stove top, then cook both in … Read more
