Grain-Free Blueberry Coconut Chia Muffins, no mixer needed! gluten-free, refined sugar-free, xanthan gum free

I couldn't bake for over two weeks while our air conditioner was being fixed and my goodness, I missed having a muffin or a grain-free cookie! It's not like we can pop out and buy a grain-free and gluten-free goodie muffin from the store is it? Today I was so happy to get back to baking and made these gluten-free Blueberry Muffings with simple grain-free ingredients that I always have on hand.

I love using all of my favorite staple ingredients in baked goods. I keep nuts, coconut, Chia, Flax, berries and my other gluten-free flours in the freezer. Once a week I make up a big batch of my Greek Yogurt recipe here. Just don't strain the yogurt for this recipe and it's perfect for these awesome muffins.

Months ago, I opened a bag of chickpeas/garbanzo beans, covered them in water, and planned to soak them for a day or two before I roasted them for a snack. Well, as life goes, I never had the time to roast the soaked beans, so I dried them off and froze them for another day.

Keeping cool with healthy gluten free recipes at Savoring Saturdays

It seems like the summer just started and it's crazy hot here! On top of the blistering heat wave, our air conditioner has been under repair for a week! So, cool light meals and refreshing drinks are what we are eating right now. Here's what we do to stay cool.

I love cold gluten free pizza like Brianna's gluten free Southwest Breakfast Pizza recipe (I baked mine in the wee  hours of the morning) and my gluten free Pot Stickers are great warmed up in the microwave for a minute. We eat a lot of big cool salads, cook on the BBQ and don't miss Raia's German Chocolate Freezer cookies, they are perfect for dessert! 

Then I curl up in the shade with a good book like Nora Robert's The Liar, it's fantastic! Or a great blog post like Danielle's Which Child is my favorite. This one.

Chickpea High Protein Quick Bread, gluten free, sugar free, fat free, xanthan free

Chickpea flour is remarkably versatile and has a subtle nutty flavor when baked. I've used it for years in my gluten free baking and love it. It's high in protein, iron and fiber making it perfect for breakfast or a late afternoon snack. I made this bread with no added fat or sugar and you will never know it!

Gluten Free Victoria Sponge Sandwich Cake, refined sugar free

In honor of Victoria Day I made up a gluten free Victoria Sponge Sandwich Cake that's delicious, healthy and easy to make! The story goes that this was Queen Victoria's favorite cake recipe and I can certainly see why. It's rich with the flavors of  butter and jam, but in my healthy gluten free cake I cut out the sugar and replaced it with just a bit of local honey.

The jam soaks into the layers and adds a delicious flavor to the cake. Unlike some gluten free cakes it's even better the next day! I stored it covered on the counter for three days (can you believe it lasted that long?) and it never got stale or dry!
