breakfast, lunch, dinner & dessert panini – gluten free, of course
Back-to-school is just around the corner and along with it comes the need for quick and easy gluten free meals. We find that on those busy days nothing beats a grilled sandwich, so here are four recipes for gluten free panini that were inspired by Dempster’s new Gluten Zero breads: ham and egg, pizza, pulled pork, and apple pie. All but the pulled pork sandwich are great hot or cold so you can make these ahead of time and pack them up in lunch bags to go! Below you will find a review of Dempster’s Gluten Zero Bread followed by our breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert Panini recipes!

gluten free microwave muffin – makes a simple, delicious breakfast
Looking for a quick and easy breakfast or snack idea? This muffin recipe makes a single, large muffin that bakes right up in the microwave. 90 seconds and you have a warm breakfast to go! And it’s gluten free! The recipe is for a basic muffin that you can then put your own touch on. The one in the foreground of the photo is raspberry and the one in the background is chocolate chip. You can also swap out some of the gf flour for cocoa and build yourself a chocolate version!

bbq cedar plank salmon – you won’t believe how easy this is!
A few minutes on the grill and you’re done —and it tastes beyond fantastic! The salmon is moist and succulent, you can just taste a hint of steamed cedar, and the brown sugar rub caramelizes to produce a slightly sweet yet savory coating. Serve this with jasmine rice and/or gf and me’s spinach salad for a quick and light meal packed with nutrition. Perfect for warm summer evenings.

gf and me’s pizza – you’ll never guess it’s gluten free
This pizza crust is incredibly easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for the dough to rise, but when it does the result is a not-too-soft and not-too-hard pizza crust that tastes divine. I know we said before that Gluten Free Pantry’s french bread mix made the best pizza crust ever, but we were wrong. (It happens sometimes…) This recipe – based on our gluten free white bread recipe – results in a lighter crust and has little to none of that gluten free after taste. No having to make sure that every inch of this crust is covered with sauce! In fact, this is the closest to a wheat flour pizza crust that we have eaten so far – and we have eaten many a gluten free pizza.

dark, dark, dark gluten free chocolate cake …. Did I say it was dark?
The next time you feel like chocolate cake – and let’s face it, there WILL be a next time – try this one. Made with 3/4 of a cup of cocoa, it is chocolatey to the point of decadence, and because it’s made with boiling water, it’s also really, really moist. One of those rare gluten free baked items that actually improves with age, this cake will be even better tomorrow, which is a good thing because the recipe makes one big ol’ sheet cake. For those of you who are better at cake decorating than I am (which will be most of you!) this would make a great decorated layer cake.
I have served this to unsuspecting guests who have had no idea that it was gluten free!

coconut crust for cream pie
The coconut flour in this recipe gives this crust a wonderful tropical flavour and the texture of a medium-hard cookie more than a classic pie crust. Its hint of coconut pairs wonderfully with coconut, vanilla, or banana custard to make an out-of-this-world cream pie that everyone will love.

gf and me’s gluten free white bread
Once you round up the ingredients, this recipe is ridiculously easy and results in a lean, white bread with a soft crumb & a salty light-yet-crispy crust. However, the best part is that it tastes closer to white, wheat-flour bread than anything we’ve tried so far. In fact, it barely has any taste at all. Instead, it doesn’t mind taking a back seat and letting the flavours of whatever you pair it with shine through – just like we believe white bread should do!
I wish you could smell our kitchen right now. It smells like bread! Glorious warm, homemade bread! Oh, and butter, and cheese and tomato…

fire roasted almond flour fruit pudding – camping out will never be the same
When you’re cooking on an open fire, desserts other than s’mores or roasted marshmallows can be hard to come by. If you’re in the mood for something different, follow this recipe and create a sweet, orange-infused pudding with a hint of almonds and cinnamon. The almond flour makes it creamy and the dried fruit adds taste and more texture. Top with a spoon full of gluten free caramel sauce for an extra decadent treat. This pudding recipe is an adaptation of Nourishment for Living Well’s almond flour raspberry muffin recipe. Click here to find a link to the recipe and to read our review of these awesome muffins!
