Coconut Flour Cut-Out Cookies

Coconut Flour Cut-Out Cookies

ShareI always grab my almond flour when I’m making a batch of cookies, and I really love my other cookie recipes. But, when having to bake cookies for my daughter’s class I was faced with a dilemma – nut free school – eeek!  Surprisingly, coconut […]

Freezer Chocolate Candy

Freezer Chocolate Candy

Share Let’s face it, the most common gift to receive on Valentine’s Day is a box of chocolates.  But unfortunately for many of us there isn’t much variety or options in the stores of chocolates we can eat, due to food restrictions or just a […]

Caramel Walnut Tart

Caramel Walnut Tart

This is a rendition of a favorite recipe I learned in pastry arts school.  Obviously, made adapted to be gluten free and sweetened with honey.  Very simple and easy to make, but for whatever reason tarts look so impressive??  It’s just a pan, and I think everyone needs one!  The chocolate glaze on top is completely optional and can either be drizzled or completely poured over as a top layer.  For the drizzle, only make a half recipe of the chocolate glaze. This recipe is completely SCD compliant without the chocolate glaze.

(if you don’t have a tart pan, you can make this in a pie plate)

Caramel Walnut Tart

Chocolate Glaze Ingredients

* (can be made in any quantity, just use equal parts of ingredients)

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

  1. Fill pre baked tart shell with walnuts.
  2. Prepare caramel and pour over walnuts.
  3. Place in freezer to set.
  4. Prepare chocolate glaze:  gently melt together honey, butter and cocoa.  Pour over cooled tart.
  5. Let caramel set completely before serving.

Everyone always brings a Classic Pumpkin Pie or Pecan Pie, so this will be a nice surprise.  I like to make freshly whipped cream or coconut whipped cream to serve on top.

Or if you just aren’t into making pies or tarts, try out my Gluten Free Gooey Pumpkin Pie Cake, which always gets rave reviews with my family!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I have so much to be grateful for and can’t wait to spend the day with family.

Many blessings

Bacon-Cornbread Stuffing

Bacon-Cornbread Stuffing

Share So in all of my years gluten free, I have never really attempted to replicate stuffing.  For one, growing up my idea of stuffing was from a box, I think we all know which one I am referring to.  And secondly, I was never […]

Gluten and Grain Free “Corn”bread

Gluten and Grain Free “Corn”bread

Share Ok, I know…. grain free cornbread is an oxymoron… but I promise you won’t miss the corn in these :) Obviously, corn is gluten free, but there are many who can’t do corn, those who follow the SCD or the Paleo diet, myself included. […]
