Ingredients:

Large Version – Fits into a 1/2 gallon mason jar

Small Version – Fits into a quart mason jar

Method:

Place all ingredients into the blender, here is the one I used, and blend on high until it is creamy and emulsified.

If you follow the Trim Healthy Plan, you can have up to 1/2 Cup of this in a Fuel Pull setting, as written. 1/4 Cup in a sipper.

***If you cannot tolerate sunflower seeds, you can use any nut or seed butter in place of this ingredient for a crazy easy DIY dairy free milk recipe. Some ideas include tahini, hemp butter, pumpkin seed butter, almond butter, even peanut butter. The final 2 options(almond and peanut butter) would, obviously, NOT be nut free, so use them at your own discretion. And, you would need to calculate the fat for your new variety of butter, to see how it fits into your Trim Healthy Plan. If you cannot tolerate sunflower lecithin, you can leave it out, you will just need to shake it up before you use it.***

Buckwheat English Muffins

This oat-free spin on my Gluten Free Sourdough English Muffins, is hearty in structure and has a very earthy taste due to the buckwheat flour.

My large family really enjoy buckwheat bread-like products, and these are one of their favorites!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 Cups Buckwheat Flour, we get ours from here or here
  • 1/2 Cups Gluten Free Sourdough Starter, or if you do not have a mature starter and would like to purchase some of mine dry, you can go here.
  • 1 Cup untreated water
  • 2/3 Cup Egg Whites
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Mineral Salt

Method:

Pull unfed, active sourdough starter out and mix with the water and the buckwheat flour.
Let it sit for 4-12 hours, I have let it sit 24 hours and it still worked well.
Mix in the remaining ingredients.
Let sit another 30 minutes to let the Baking Powder and Baking Soda activate fully.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Prepare the baking sheet with Aluminum or parchment, and wide-mouth mason jar lid rings. Or, use a silicone muffin top pan.
Spray lightly in the rings with cooking spray.
Fill to just under the top of the rim with the rested batter.
Bake for 25-35 minutes
Pull from the oven and let them sit and be cool enough to pull the muffins out of the rings without burning yourself.
Let fully cool before you cut into them.
These are compatible with an E meal on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, keeping it to 1 with room for some fruit, or 2 with no additional carb sources.

Single Serve Free-From Bread

This is a simple recipe for quick gluten free bread, that an allergy mama can use.

I do not own a microwave, so if you make this I would love to know how long you cooked it, and how it worked for you, so these are made in a mini waffle iron. Because I own six of them, you know I have a large family, I mix these up in three small bowls and do the top and bottom at the same time.

***I have linked some of the products we used below. If you choose to make a purchase through any of these links I may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. This helps me continue to create free content, and support my little, large family.***

Ingredients:

Method:

Mix all dry ingredients, and then add the wet. The batter should be looser than a microwave muffin batter, but not soupy. Have a mini waffle iron, or two, hot and ready. Spray lightly with coconut cooking spray(or any other you can use). Add half the batter to the waffle iron, and cook for about 5 minutes until browning and cooked through. Then, add the other half to the waffle iron and cook he same way.

***This is a fuel pull bread on its own, but keep an eye on your added fat if you are using anything other than the Creamy Dreamy Hemp Protein Powder in your baking blend, because it could tip you into a light S or crossover on the Trim Healthy Mama plan.***

Root Beer Shake

I used to be a bit of a jerk when I was a teen…a Soda Jerk, that is! Yep, I worked in an old-fashioned soda shop for 4 years.

Hand-dipped shakes, floats, fries, and hand-made burgers were my whole world there. I made al the things, and the recipes are forever etched into my brain. My kids were pretty impressed when I made them a shake for one of their birthdays this year with huckleberries that we had picked ourselves in the woods.

Almost all of these things I used to make, I have been able to recreate on our gluten free lifestyle, and this shake has been on my list for some time to make a recipe for my THM Lifestyle, because it was my absolute favorite from when I worked at the soda shop.

Think of the best vanilla-flavored shake you have ever had, and then add a bit more vanilla, and you have it!

Ingredients

Method

Peel the banana and freeze it the night before. You need this to be frozen solid. Then add it and all other ingredients to the blender, except the protein powder of your choice. Blend until smooth and free of banana or ice chunks. Add your 1/4 Cup of protein powder and blend until fully incorporated.

***This is an E meal or snack on the Trim Healthy Plan***

Celebration Sip

If you live a sugar free lifestyle, certain traditions become more of a challenge, especially when concentrated fruit juices are at the heart of them.

Specifically communion, biblical feasts and celebrations like Shabbat(Jewish Sabbath from sundown Friday evening to Sundown Saturday evening).

As a Trim Healthy Mama, I don’t drink juice, specifically concentrated fruit juices without the whole fruit included for fiber. So, this is SIPPER, yes I was able to make it a sipper, is going to be my new celebratory grape juice-style drink!

Ingredients:

Method:

Put the Butterfly pea flowers or tea bags in 2 cups of hot water, for several hours or overnight to steep. Strain and put into a quart sized vessel. Add all other ingredients, and mix well. Fill to the top of the vessel with ice cubes and use as an all day sipper on the Trim Healthy Plan or a sugar free celebratory drink to replace grape juice and wine as you would like.

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.

I have included links to products we use, below. If you choose to make a purchase through those links I may receive a small commission, at no additional cost to you. This helps me continue to offer free content on this site, and support my little, large family.

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.

Squeeze Sauce

When you are raising dairy free, and gluten free children, you start getting really creative when it comes to getting veggies into them!

And, who doesn’t want broccoli with cheesy sauce on top?

Pin This

This cheese sauce is good on all the things!

Now, we are very blessed that all of our children eat vegetables willingly, for the most part, and we no longer live with the degree of sensory processing challenges from our early days of parenthood, thanks to lots of consistent exposure.

Noodles, veggies, breakfast burrito mix, all of it…..and, you will need a powerful enough blender to pulverize all the veggies in this sauce, there is over 3 Cups, into a nice smooth product.

We use a Vitamix, but there are other blenders powerful enough to do this too, even though this blender is on our must-have kitchen appliance list in our home. We went without it once for multiple months, and 0/10 would not recommend!

But, If you want the recipe here’s the deal. It is an exclusive gift for those who have signed up for my monthly newsletter. No worries, I will not sell your information or use it for any purpose other than sending information about what is going on in the Treehouse.

Buckwheat Sourdough Pizza Crust

***There are affiliate links in this post, and if you choose to make a purchase through the links I may receive a small commission at no additional cost to you***

Are you ready for a tasty GLUTEN FREE Sourdough crust? Look no further!

This one has been on repeat in the Treehouse for about 6 months, and it is the most like a “real” pizza crust in our opinion…my husband myself were raised on bread, so our children really don’t know any different.

What’s the Secret?

Flip & Flop!

cook the crust for 20 minutes on on side, parchment paper will save your sanity I promise, then flip it over and cook it on the other side BEFORE you add any toppings, but I will explain this process more below.

Sturdy enough to hold, but soft and chewy inside! What’s not to love, right?

Can we skip to the good part now, Nicole?

Yes ma’am! Your recipe awaits……

Ingredients

  • 1 C mature sourdough Starter, I use Gluten Free Sourdough Starter
  • 2/3 C Buckwheat Flour, we get ours from here or in bulk from here
  • 2 tsp Italian seasonings, we buy our bulk spices from here and mix our own.
  • 1 teaspoon Mineral Salt, from here or here
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2T oat fiber, from here or here
  • 1/4 C plus 1 T un-treated water
  • 2 T psyllium husk, from here or her

Method

Create a sponge with the Buckwheat flour, mature starter, and untreated water. Let this sit in a covered bowl overnight, or 7-12 hours. Then add the rest of your ingredients, with Psyllium Husk added last after everything has been well incorporated.

line a pizza pan with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Press the dough into the shape you like with water-wet hands. Press until is is even and approximately 1/4 inch thick.

Bake on the first side for 20 minutes. Pull the pan out and then use the parchment to flip the crust over and cook it for 15 more minutes. Add your toppings and broil to melt your cheese or until your toppings are warmed enough.

***The crust is an E compatible fuel on the Trim Healthy Mama Plan, but the final product will likely be a crossover if you are adding full fat cheeses, or large servings of pepperoni. To keep this pizza an E, non-starchy veggies, and very low-fat meats and cheese products will need to be used***
