Dad's Cinnamon Banana Nut Skillet Cake, gluten free

My hubby loves banana bread and sticky buns with tons of nuts. I had the idea to combine the two and made this skillet cake for him with organic bananas from my friends at Space Girl Organics. It turned out amazing! It would be easy enough even for kids, with a little help from Mom, to make Dad breakfast on Father's Day. Here's how I did it...

There's nothing I love more than eating a desert that's filled with healthy organic vegetables! This amazing Red Velvet Mousse Cake is gluten free, grain free and organic! For many years I ate no carbs, no goodies, no bread, no cookies, until I was driving myself mad with deprivation. I was skinny and crazy for a cookie! Now I'm happy and eat healthy. I enjoy low carb gluten free goodies in moderation. No more craziness! My baking is greatly inspired by my  beautiful organic produce from Space Girl Organics.  Here's what I did with their beets...

Stunning Squash Brownies, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, grain free

Looking for ways to use up your squash?  How about baking them into a healthy brownie full of vitamins, antioxidants and fiber?  I know, I didn't think it would work either, but I have to say these Stunning Squash Brownies really take the cake!  Now, whenever I see squash in my box from Space Girl Organics, I will be making brownies!

Paleo Pear Clafoutis, free of gluten, sugar, dairy and grains!

In 2005 I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroid disease and in 2010 I started tackling the challenges of living gluten-free.  It's been fun, pull your hair out frustrating, but slowly I've healed.

I baked everything I craved, had epic failures and fabulous triumphs like my Spectacular Gluten Free Bread, but I wasn't feeling as healthy as I hoped I would, and I knew there was more that I needed to do to heal my body.   I started taking probiotics and vitamins but my tummy still hurt so I started to research again.

I learned that the next step to healing is cutting out dairy, refined sugar, most grains, and legumes. Tough stuff for the baker girl!  I console myself by making big batches each week of my favorite  lactose free Greek yogurt and Almond Milk.

I also learned that avoiding all pesticides and GMO produce is important for my gut so I'm now eating organic fruits and vegetables!
My Pear Clafoutis is easy to make and so delicious using fresh organic butter, eggs and pears. I make it with local honey for refined sugar free or stevia for sugar free!

Peach & Mango Berry Crisp, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, grain free

 
Do you love Berry Crisp as much as I do?  Especially when it's still warm with frozen yogurt made from my homemade Greek Yogurt on top!  I used frozen peaches, blueberries and a fresh mango that I needed to use up but you can use whatever you have on hand.

Tony's Rockin' Low Carb German Chocolate Cake, gluten free


This is the best Low Carb cake I have ever made.  My hubby gave it a big thumbs up!!  I made it in the blender and it works great every time!  

Low Carb Gluten Free Cranberry Almond Biscotti, grain free, sugar free

I am crazy about Biscotti.  This new gluten free low carb biscotti recipe thrilled me to my toes. 
I've been making biscotti for years and didn't want to mess with the recipe but I gave it a shot. Wow, it's great is it to have a cookie that is lower in carbs and has the same crunch and flavor as the ones I make with flour!!

Gluten Free Low Glycemic Almond Lace Cookie

I made up this recipe last night that I found handwritten in the back of  one of my oldest cookbooks.  You know the ones we have with the bindings falling off and spots on the pages?...I love my cookbooks! I think I got this recipe from my Scandinavian Mother in law a million years ago.  They roll nicely and are very flexible so I'm going to work on fillings for them too.  I think I'll try the recipe again soon and see if I can cut back the honey a bit so they aren't so sweet.  I'll let you know how the second try comes out, but in the meantime if you want to give it a go, these are fun and easy.  xx
10/9 follow up note-  I haven't worked on changing this recipe yet because I LOVE them now!  I found the second batch that I made that night is pretty darn perfect.  I let them get a little darker brown (I forgot them for a second) and I notice that as they cooled, the darker cookies "crisped up" much better than the first batch.  I put them in the fridge overnight and when I bit into the darker rolled cookie...it shattered a bit...yum!! now I'm hooked....Best of all, I calculated the calories at only 100 per cookie!! 

Gluten Free Low Glycemic Peanut Butter Cookie, no grains

Hi everyone,   This is a super easy, no grain cookie that turns out soft and yummy!!  The cookies raise and get bigger so a small spoonful will make a nice sized cookie.  I like to add flax for the extra Omega 3's but it's optional and the cookies are great without it. Hope you enjoy my Gluten Free Low Glycemic Peanut Butter Cookie!   big hugs,  Ali

Skinny Gluten Free & Sugar Free Happy Cookie

I've had quite a bump in the road to health this past week.  I have acid reflux now, on top of Celiac and Hashimoto's Thyroid disease, so I'm revamping my diet once again! Two years of learning to cook Gluten Free, and feeling pretty darn good with it all, and now I need to take out all of the foods that cause acid reflux.  That means cutting way down on sugar, coffee, tea, pop, citrus, fats, spicy food and many others...ugh! so here's some research just in case you are dealing with this too.  
Here's the list of Unsafe Foods for Acid Reflux
I adore my latte's in the morning, and no chocolate? but I know I need to protect my health and I'm so thankful for all the great info on the internet!!
See this list for info on Safe Foods for Acid Reflux
I went off coffee for 2 days, had a terrible headache, but I had a tiny cup this morning with no problem.  I guess I could give it up, but I hope I don't have to completely.
Now cookies are another thing all together...I made these cookies this morning and we'll see if they hurt me tonight.  I'm going very slow and keeping everything to tiny bits.  Even just a bite made me happy.  Thus the name.  Hugs to you all,  Ali

Super Easy Gluten Free Thumbprint Cookie. grain free

Gluten Free Almond Orange Cake, grain free

This amazing cake is originally from Italy.  It's so good and so easy that Starbucks put it on their menu for awhile, but removed it when it didn't stay fresh long enough on the shelf.  That's a shame,  but we can just make it ourselves!  It's wonderful as is, or frost with a simple orange glaze and fresh whipped cream.
