Gluten Free Raspberry Cream Sweet Rolls

raspberry cream sweet rolls
This past weekend I picked a ton of raspberries at a friend’s house. I made two batches of jam and had about 1/3 cup that wouldn’t fit into a jar. I took that and decided to make raspberry cream sweet rolls. I hope you like it!

Roll Dough:
2/3 c. milk (I used almond milk)
1/4 c. sugar
1 Tbs. yeast
2 Tbs. butter or nondairy butter
1 egg
1 1/2 c. gluten free flour mix (I use this one)
1/4 c. sorghum flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
– Heat milk to 110 degrees F and mix in sugar and yeast. Let sit until yeast bubbles and “grows”.
– Mix remaining ingredients in a mixer until well incorporated.
– Spray a piece of wax paper with nonstick spray, spoon dough onto wax paper and top with another sprayed piece of wax paper...

Grain Free (Paleo) Chocolate Zucchini Bread

chocolate zucchini bread

My good friend, Carrie, introduced me to Elena’s Pantry’s Zucchini Bread recipe a few years ago and I loved it. Since then I have made a few tweaks to my liking and the recipe is as follows. Enjoy!


  • 1 1/2 cups superfine almond flour (I use THIS brand)
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs (I’ve used flax gel and it turns out okay, but it is very dense)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup local honey
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 medium zucchini, peeled & chopped coarsely
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, divided (I use THIS brand)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Put all ingredients, except chocolate chips, into a food processor and process until smooth...

Gluten & dairy free chocolate donuts

Chocolate donuts

This morning I woke up craving a donut…a cake donut with chocolate glaze. And, since I’m not working for the rest of 2014, I decided to make some…after I worked out. 🙂 These took about 30 minutes from start to finish and my kids devoured half of them (the recipe made 1 dozen) in no time.

  • 3/4 cup gluten free flour
  • ¼ cup  sugar
  • 3 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup nondairy milk
  • 1 egg (or you can use 1 Tbs. flax meal mixed into 3 Tbs warm water and set aside until it forms a gel)
  • ½ teaspoon gluten free vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbs. nondairy butter, melted
  • 2-3 tablespoons nondairy milk, depending on how thick you want your glaze
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 c...

Gluten free & dairy free eggnog bread

eggnog bread_2

A few weeks ago I saw a recipe for frosted eggnog bread on Pinterest that sounded like something my office would enjoy…only there are two of us in the office that are gluten free, and one coworker is dairy free. So, here is that recipe with my modifications. I will note that I haven’t tried making this egg free yet, but as with most of my bread recipes, I think it’ll work just fine if you use 1 Tbs. flax meal mixed into 3 Tbs. of warm water (mix, set aside and let turn unto a gel) for the egg that is called for.

1/2 c. nondairy butter at room temperature
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. gluten free rum extract
1 egg
2 cups gluten free flour blend
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 c...
