Gluten Free

Sweet and savoury goodies without a single speck of gluten but loads of flavour.

I don’t have a gluten intolerance but I have friends and family who do and I know some of you, my readers, are gluten free so I try my best to give you a good range of yummy treats, both meals and desserts.

Sweet potato and red capsicum frittata

Posted on October 29, 2012

Here we are at Meatless Monday again. Gosh they come around fast!

This week I’m going to do a bit of annoying boasting… all the herbs in this dish came from my garden. Cue smug smile.

And, we’re done. I’ll be back boasting again when I can claim some vegetables too.

Nothing much to say about today’s recipe except that frittatas are just fantastic for breakfast, lunch or dinner when you need to clean out the fridge of odds and ends. Bits of cheese, odd vegetables, limp herbs – they can all go in – and what comes out is a quick and filling meal.  (more…)

30 sec Salted Macadamia Caramel {raw, vegan, gluten-free}

That’s right, there’s no cream or butter… there’s buttery macadamia nuts instead.


How to never dilute your smoothie with ice, ever again!

Are you sick of your smoothies getting watered down by ice cubes? Me too, but don’t worry – I’ve found a solution!

Simply make ice cubes out of milk and raw cacao (or cocoa powder) and jazz up a glass of milk or smoothie with ice cubes that will keep it chilled AND tasty. You can even eat the cubes on their own as a guilt-free treat, yum! (more…)

Nutty chocolate cake with peppermint tea syrup

Posted on October 11, 2012

Chocolate and mint go well together, right?

Today I have taken that concept just a little bit further.

This is a super moist chocolate cake made with ground almonds and walnuts and then poked all over and drowned in a sweet and sticky syrup of refreshing peppermint tea. Sounds like heaven, doesn’t it? (more…)

Gluten free banana bread recipe

Posted on October 10, 2012

My banana bread recipe is the most popular recipe on this blog. I get countless people turning up here every day after searching Google for banana bread recipes. Hello if that’s you right now!

My hubby just loves banana bread, and I love making it for him. His mum loves banana bread too, but she can’t eat my recipe because she follows a gluten free diet. So I decided to develop a GF banana bread recipe so that we could all enjoy this luscious treat together! (more…)
