Banana Bread Quinoa

I like to mix things up a bit when it comes to quick, gluten free creations. And, this loaf I decided to try to make it egg free, even though we have over 40 hens and eggs a plenty most of the long days of the year.

So, here is my “banana bread” version of baked quinoa.

Ingredients:

Method:

Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I placed mine in a standard loaf pan with parchment lining it, but a silicone loaf pan would be great for this. It will be done when the middle is set. Let cool for about 15 minutes before cutting and serving.

This is egg free, so it will be crumbly. Best Results will be when completely cool.

Pumpkin Baked Quinoa

This baked quinoa takes a simple seed, and turns it into a tasty breakfast or snack that can be made in advance and eaten hot or cold for busy days.

My kids really enjoyed it, and it helped mix up our oatmeal days, by providing a different flavor and texture profile.

Fluffy Oat Pancakes

As the mother to 7 children, and believe me we may be completely gluten free, but pancakes are a universal language in the breakfast universe! A good recipe is worth its weight in maple syrup, pure grade A of course!

So, I set about to make one, just for my crew…..

It’s not an easy thing to transition to a gluten free lifestyle, because at first nothing tastes or acts right. Fluffy pancakes are few and far between, especially in the whole grain gluten free flour world.

But, I do believe these ones are the ONES! Even my husband thought the texture was amazing.

Ingredients

Method

Mix all dry ingredients together, with a whisk, until well combined. Add all your wet ingredients, except for the ACV or Lemon Juice (whichever you want to use). Mix well, and until there are no lumps. Then, add the vinegar or lemon juice. Let this mixture sit for at least 10-15 minutes to let the action happen.

Preheat a ceramic griddle, yes you can use a pan but make sure it is non-stick because oat flour is crazy sticky even with spray, to about 250 or 300 degrees. Then drop the batter by 1/4 Cup-fulls on the the surface and even out the surface so it is all the same thickness. Let the pancakes become very bubbly all over the top and “dry-ish” looking before you flip. Then, flip and let cook an additional 3 minutes.

***These are an E fuel on the Trim Healthy Plan, and approximately 1/4 of this recipe would be a serving size*** And, they go fantastically with my Maple-Nut Syrup!

Gluten Free Sourdough Waffles

If you have spent anytime around my blog, or my social media, you will see that I am so in love with my Gluten Free Sourdough creations….Thanks to “Brice” my Gluten Free Sourdough Starter!

I was looking for a way to use the starter in more recipes, and I came across several recipes for waffles, but they all had off-plan flours. If you know anything about gluten free flours, then you know that whole grain flour does not product a very fluffy final product, and waffles are supposed to be fluffy, right?

I am starting to love a good challenge, regarding our limitations around food, and this was one that I wanted to get done. Not just because I miss waffles, but also because They can make a good substitute for slices of bread…you know, sometimes you just need a good sandwich!

Here is what I came up with…..

Ingredients:

Overnight Sponge-

Other ingredients-

Method:

Mix up the Overnight sponge. Cover with a light cloth and leave overnight on the counter.

The next day add all your ingredients, except glucomannan and psyllium because both will need to be mixed immediately and completely to avoid clumping. Add those two, and mix with a whisk as you add them slowly.

I used a mini waffle maker like this one, and about 3 Tablespoons of the batter was just right for my machine to handle without a mess.

This recipe falls into an E setting on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, and I would recommend about 3 mini waffles as a serving. These also freeze well, and do not come out dry.

Easy Oat Bars

Want an easy, gluten free bar that ca be made in minutes?

Then, these are the bars for you, Lovely Lady!

I just wanted something that could be mixed and eaten without having to wash a lot of dishes, and quick enough for me to eat it before the baby woke up.

The oat flour I use is Certified Gluten free, because I buy those type of oats and blend my flour in a blender. You can find a reel I did on Instagram about making it, here.

The green banana flour is new to me, and so far I am finding that I really like it! Very Little flavor, with some nice health benefits as well as some hopeful results in future gluten free baking ideas.

Goodie Bowl

I got the bones for this recipe from a blog, “Counting All Joy”, that used to be around when I began following the Trim Healthy Plan to feed my family but seems to have been shut down now, so I adapted it from memory.

We were gluten free and dairy free at that time, so anything I found that could possibly fit the restrictions we had, and felt like dessert, we were going to try it!

As the phonetic sound of the name implies…this is a “Good E” meal or snack on this plan…I know, funny name right, I thought so too?

It seems sad to call it a recipe when it’s just a pour or two here and then throw in a spoon, but I must share this!

This is a single serve, no special ingredients meal. It is very important that you use FROZEN fruit or it will ruin the effect of this simple meal, in my opinion.

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce

1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries

1 Teaspoon Nuts or Seeds

Mix it all together and let the berries get a little melty, and you have something that feels like dessert, and is extremely fast to prepare for one person, or 8 in my house….

I do add a Collagen or Gelatin Tea to this if it is intended as my meal because it is very light on protein. My kids have it with full fat peanut butter drizzled on top as a crossover.
