I am sharing a recipe for gluten free and dairy free graham crackers today.
Crackers?
I thought I was sharing a new cookie recipe every day.
Well, even though these graham crackers are called crackers they really are a cookie to me. Primarily graham crackers are used, all ground up as a crust ingredient.
A sweet crust for pies and tarts.
Graham crackers are a necessary baking pantry ingredient and because of their sweetness I am sharing a new recipe with you all as a cookie!

Gluten Free Dairy Free Fruit Pizza

gluten free fruit pizza recipe

Here is the 3rd of 4 new easy recipes I promised you. I have already shared recipes for gluten free dairy free carrot cake as well as gluten free dairy free brownies.
Today’s recipe is for Gluten Free Fruit Pizza. Have you ever had a fruit pizza? It seemed when I had been playing with the recipe that either you grew up eating fruit pizza like myself, or you had never heard of it.
Fruit pizza was a summer dessert I had as a kid, but it was also a dessert I made for my own kids.

For other recipes your kids will love, click here.

Truly, I have not had fruit pizza since my diagnosis of Celiacs over 7 years ago. Silly really, that I have not tried to make a gluten free version. Maybe I needed to become a better gluten free baker to be able to come up with a recipe.#

gluten free fruit pizza recipe

Not only is this recipe gluten free, I decided to make a dairy free version too. What surprised me, as well as the folks who got to sample my first couple of fruit pizzas, is that no one could tell that it was dairy free. To me, that is a great feeling of accomplishment as a recipe developer.
I love to hear comments such as: “I didn’t know it was gluten free.” “Really, there is no dairy in here?”
There are 2 parts to this recipe:

  1. The gluten free pizza crust is a sweet cookie dough that you can bake the day ahead.
  2. The creamy dairy free filling that you spread over the pizza crust and then top with an assortment of fresh fruit.

I find it easiest to bake the pizza crust on a simple aluminum foil pizza pan, found at the grocery store.

Carrot Cake.
Is it one of your favorites?
Do you make sure that your bite has an equal amount of icing as cake?
Or do you eat the cake and save the cream cheese icing for last?
Have you been looking for a gluten free dairy free carrot cake?

gluten free dairy free carrot cake recipe

This gluten free dairy free carrot cake is super-moist and delicious.
Try using fresh carrots from the farmers market for they add a definite sweetness to the cake.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Carrot Cake

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups gluten free Sobeys Compliments gluten free flour blend
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cardamon
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups canola oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup raw chopped almonds
  • 3 cups grated carrots

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a small springform pan with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl whisk the gluten free flour, spices, baking soda, salt and xanthan gum.
  • In a stand mixer beat the brown sugar, apple cider vinegar and oil until blended.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time until batter is smooth.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients until batter is blended.
  • Add the shredded carrots and almonds and mix on low.
  • Pour batter into springform pan.
  • Bake in oven for 50-60 minutes.
  • I allow the variance in times because it took a full 60 minutes for it to bake for me, however I am at a high altitude and a lower altitude would take less time.
  • Allow cake to cool on a wire rack.
  • Once cooled, cut cake in 1/2 and icing.
  • For the dairy free icing I use Tofutti cream cheese which is a dairy free product.
  • I find this cream cheese substitutes wonderfully for an icing and in fact is beats up quite smoothly.
  • For this cake I used 2 containers of Tofutti cream cheese, 2 Tbsp softened vegan butter, 1/2 tsp vanilla paste and about 1/2 cup icing sugar.
  • I am not a big fan of over using icing sugar in icing recipes.

Gluten Free Nut Crust

gluten-free-nut-crust998.jpg (630×630)

Spring has finally arrived in Calgary and with that comes a feeling of newness, of change, of growth and for me happiness. It’s been a long winter here again and when the weather finally breaks I just want to be outside all the time.
I want to smell the grass growing again, see the tulips coming up from the earth and witness everything being “born” again in Calgary.

gluten-free-nut-crust971.jpg (630×840)

If you follow me on Facebook you will see that I am learning to run now. I am an avid walker and last year averaged 20,000 steps a day.

You can also follow me on TwitterPinterest and Instagram.

That’s 2 1/2 hours of walking every day or about 20 km. It was a ton of walking!
And while I still love to walk, I found my weight loss had plateaued and I needed a boost in my workouts. I started with a personal trainer 3 days a week and he has me lifting weights and is showing me that I am stronger than I think.
I truly love it!
Don’t tell Kyle though or he will get me huffing, puffing and sweating more.
With spring here Kyle put me on a running program and I started off with just 5 minutes of running, 1 minute of walking for a bit and now I am able to run 6 km.
We took it slowly and I have discovered that I like to run. It is really difficult at times but I feel really proud of myself when I accomplish a goal.

Amber Approved: Avocado Chocolate Pudding

gluten free avocado chocolate pudding recipe
amber approved and wheat free mom


Today’s recipe is an Avocado Chocolate Pudding by Amber Romaniuk.
I met Amber through a photographer that was taking my photos for Catelli pasta. The photographer was unaware that I had a gluten free blog and mentioned he had just finished taking photos for a new cookbook that was coming out by Amber.
He then texted Amber to ask if she knew my blog and surprisingly she was a fan of my blog and was excited to meet me.
Amber invited me to her cookbook launch and I enjoyed meeting her and hearing her talk passionately about food issues, sugar addiction and the power that food has in wellness.
Her recipes are gluten free, dairy free and also sugar free.
We had coffee recently and I knew when a 1 hour lunch turned into 2 hours of chatting that we would learn from each other but also support each other in our passions. Amber has such passion about food and it’s issues that I hope you check out her site.
I asked Amber if she would be interested in sharing her story on my blog plus a healthy recipe with my readers. She said “Of course!”

Enter Amber

So it’s the New Year and we are halfway through February, which is hard to believe. It’s also hard to believe that it’s been 2 years since I kicked my sugar and gluten-addictions and have had a whole world of awesome open up.
After dealing with a food addiction and binge eating which were fueled largely by gluten, sugar & MSG as well as a large lack of self-love void, I feel so free and in a space of such empowerment to share my story with the world, as well as my recipes and knowledge/experience as a Holistic Nutritionist who now specializes in supporting those who deal with emotional eating, intense cravings for sugars and other ingredients that can throw our lives for a loop.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Carrie by a very talented photographer here in Calgary who mentioned we should meet. I felt very privileged to have them attend my book launch for “Amber Approved: Gluten, Dairy & Sugar-free” in December.
The book is my first of many Amber Approved versions to come. It’s a collection of 65 recipes that are all gluten, dairy, corn, soy and refined-sugar free. A bit of everything from breakfast to salads to sweet treats and desserts that you do not have to feel guilty about indulging in.

While going through my own cycles of deprivation and binging, I vowed there would have to be a balance, a happy medium where I could still have the chocolate or my favorite cookie, but that I could shift all of the refined ingredients to more natural whole foods options, where my creativity exploded and Amber Approved was born. The blood sugar spikes aren’t as big, and the satisfaction after having a few bites is so fulfilling.
There’s no more need to want to just devour everything in sight when you are using really top quality ingredients.
So being that we are in February, and there has just been a lot of chocolate boxes going around for Valentine’s Day, I thought why not share one of my most favorite recipes for a basic Chocolate Avocado pudding.
Simple, easy to make and absolutely delicious and satisfying. This recipe contains some great whole foods including avocado which are a great source of healthy Omega 9 fats which especially help to support balance of female hormones. Maca is great for supporting proper adrenal function as well as increased libido and fertility, while raw cacao is a great source of magnesium, antioxidants and has mood enhancing properties.
I really am passionate about sharing the health benefits of each ingredient, as when society can be educated on what they are eating and the benefits, they can start to look at their food as more than just food to survive or taste good, they can look at it and feel good knowing they are aware of what they are putting in their bodies. They can be proud to be educated and know that they just had nutrients their body can use and have more balanced health physically, mentally and emotionally because of that. It’s such a satisfying feeling!
So I’m happy to share my Chocolate Avocado Pudding Recipe as well as that I will be hosting an Amber Approved Love Chocolate Workshop Thursday March 20th you to come out and learn some fantastic new knowledge while you sample some of my most favorite.

3 Holiday Treat Recipes that are Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free and Low in Sugar.

gluten free date coconut pistachio balls
Happy New Year everyone!
It is hard to believe it is already 2014 and I am going to be 49 years old this spring.
Yikes!
Last year on my 48th birthday I realized I needed to get healthy.
The first thing I did was buy the UP bracelet from Jawbone (insert jawbone website) and get walking.
I’ve used pedometers before and I like the accountability they give to me. This bracelet not only keeps track of my steps, but it allows me to input other exercise I do, and it also keeps track of my sleep.
All this was important to me.
I started off wanting to get 15,000 steps in per day and by July I upped it to 20,000 steps per day.
Walking became my part time job and I started to slowly lose weight.
Then winter arrived in Calgary and my weight also plateaued. I was walking 2 1/2 hours a day and not losing at all. I knew I needed to up my workouts if I was going to continue on this journey.
Seriously, I am not on a diet. I have tried every diet out there, and have always gained it back. This time it is about getting into shape and eating healthy.
My daughter had started seeing this personal trainer and I liked what I was hearing about her workouts. It didn’t hurt that she really liked her trainer either. I decided to give him a call and see about getting starting some personal training.
In November I started training with Kyle at Vagus Fitness 3 times a week and I am very, very glad I made that initial call.

Here is a little background on me in case you are all thinking I’m some sort of an athlete.
First of all I never exercised as a kid. Sure I road my bike around but I grew up in the country and gravel roads aren’t the best. I never played any sports and still to this day do not know how to skate.
Really I am just trying to get into shape.
I will never be a size 0 nor am I trying to be. I would like to be a healthy size and weight for me and be in good shape. Last year the kids bought us bikes for our anniversary and it is something I really enjoy and would like to bike a lot more this year, so that means I need to be in better shape.
Exercising is darn hard work at times, and I am sure I complain to Kyle too much about certain routines he has me doing. But truly, I am thrilled.
I feel better, I am stronger and I am challenging myself past my comfort zone which makes me smile!
Before Christmas, Kyle asked me to come up with some recipes for his blog that were gluten free, dairy free and lower in sugar.
He does have a fitness facility so healthier baked goodies would be best.
I came up with 3 recipes and I encourage you to go on his site and take a look.
How about Gluten-Free Date Coconut Pistachio Balls?
gluten free date coconut pistachio balls
These no-bake balls are delicious and super healthy for you too. Gluten Free Rice Krispies, coconut oil, raw pistachios and dates.
Next there is a recipe for Gluten Free Elderflower Marmalade Oat Bars.
gluten free elderflower marmalade oat bars
I challenge you to make these squares and see if anyone notices they are low in sugar, gluten free and vegan.
They really are just that good.
And last is a recipe for Gluten Free Vegan Gingerbread People.
gluten free vegan gingerbread people
These cookies are gluten free, egg free, vegan and low in sugar.
You will be very pleased with this recipe too.
Check out vagusfitness.com for these recipes and if you are in the Calgary area I would highly recommend these guys for helping with your fitness goals.
