Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

These gluten free chocolate chip muffins have that moist and tender cake-like crumb everyone loves, and just enough chips to tempt your pickiest eater. They’re just right for breakfast, or an afternoon snack.

What makes this recipe special

These gluten free chocolate chip muffins, like all muffins, have a slightly denser texture than cake. But the crumb is so tender and moist, it leans a bit closer to cake-like than is traditional.

I do have a very adaptable recipe for gluten free muffins, and it’s a great recipe. But like an all purpose gluten free flour is good for all purposes, but not ideal for certain more nuanced applications, this muffin recipe is what my dream of a chocolate chip muffin looks like.

To me, a really special chocolate chip muffin has a slightly more tender crumb. So it starts with a slightly softer batter. Here, the flour blend … Read more

Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

This gluten free Irish soda bread is a lightly sweet quick bread that tastes best slathered with some extra Irish butter. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or any day, the way you remember.

What makes this Irish soda bread special?

I first developed this recipe many years ago when my gluten free son, who is now considerably taller than I am (and I’m not short) was in the early years of grammar school. They were “celebrating” St. Patrick’s Day by sharing Irish soda bread.

Since he was already gluten free, and necessity is the mother of invention, I developed this recipe. I’ve been making it ever since—and when my son is feeling generous, he will remember the grammar school times to me.

Irish Soda Bread is a quick bread, not a yeast bread (although frankly I think it would make a fabulous yeast bread). And it’s not your typical quick bread. … Read more

Dairy Free Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

This decadent dairy free gluten free chocolate cake is made with a ‘secret ingredient’ that makes it super tender without any added butter or eggs.

What makes this chocolate cake different?

The “secret ingredient” that replaces eggs and butter in this cake is mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is a stable emulsion made of eggs and oil.

I promise it doesn’t make the cake taste like mayo. I’m not a mayo person for the sake of it. I love this cake.

I don’t generally like to bake with neutral oils like canola and vegetable oil, since they tend to create an oily-tasting cake. Baking with mayonnaise allows us to bake without any dairy substitutes, but still bake a moist and tender, super decadent chocolate cake that is also dairy-free.

If you love mayonnaise, you won’t taste it in this cake. If you can’t stand mayonnaise, you still won’t taste it in this cake.… Read more

Almond Flour Banana Muffins | Grain Free

Almond flour banana muffins are naturally gluten free and grain free, and even Paleo, but taste just like “regular” banana muffins. The perfect hearty, grab and go breakfast!

A crowd-pleasing breakfast muffin

Listen, not everyone (in my house, even) loves the taste of almond flour. And when I bake, I like to keep my ideal reader (that’s you!) and my ideal eater (that’s my youngest) in mind.

She doesn’t like the taste of almond flour—but she really likes these muffins. That is a win. 🙇🏻‍♀️

If you add a few diced ripe bananas to the tops of them, like you see in the background of the photo above, they will spread a bit more on top. Try adding them to some, but not all.

They have everything I look for in a muffin: tasty, hearty, satisfying, and they freeze well. That means that I can make a batch, and let … Read more
