We had some leftover strawberries from making this salad and decided to use them up in some gluten free muffins. The delicate flavour of strawberry can easily be overpowered in baked goods, so to intensify the berry-ness of these muffins we use strawberry coulis both as a wet ingredient and as a garnish while serving. We also use mild and slightly sweet coconut and oat flours which compliment the strawberries, keep these muffins moist and light and pack nutrition and fibre into every bite. With your favorite morning cup of “pick me up,” these muffins make an awesome weekend breakfast!

Makes a super banana bread that tastes great warm or cold and stays moist – even after a few days! You may want to make two of these so you can have enough for banana bread french toast in the morning. Amazing!My mom brought one of these over the other night. She’d made it using Cup 4 Cup gluten free flour and it was exceptionally good. Below you’ll find two versions of this recipe. Our old one – which is gluten and dairy free and is also great – and one using Cup 4 Cup flour which is shown in the photo above.
This chocolate potato cake is one of the lightest gluten free cakes we’ve tried. It has a fluffy, crumbly texture and a mild chocolate flavour. You’d never guess that the recipe uses mashed potatoes!This is a conversion of a recipe that I came across in our local paper. (I also halved the recipe which explains some of the odd measurements.) The caption in the paper says that the potatoes boost nutrition, but I’m not so sure about that!
Inspired by our trip to Maui, Geoff and I decided to try to make something that would bring together some tropical island flavours. Made with Tahitian vanilla, shredded and ground coconut, and chunks of fresh pineapple, these Pina Colada Muffins certainly do the trick. On top of all that, the almond flour base makes them hearty and the applesauce keeps them moist for days. We will certainly be making these again! These are based on the almond flour raspberry muffins we posted earlier. Like those muffins, these should be stored in the fridge and taste even better the next day when the flavours have a chance to meld.
These muffins are like a light & fluffy bowl of oatmeal! Make them on the weekend and enjoy them warm from the oven, and then keep the rest in the freezer for a quick on-the-go meal. They are hearty and wholesome and the coconut flour and fruit filling keep them super moist.

Made with a combination of coconut, quinoa, and rice flour, this gluten free carrot cake brings together the flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla with just a hint of cloves.
