Gluten Free Blueberry Banana Oat Muffins Recipe

Blueberry Banana Oat Gluten Free Muffins Recipe

There’s something about a good, warm muffin right out of the oven that’s hard to beat. Even more so when it’s gluten-free muffins that are just as good (if not better!) than the regular version. We’ve experimented with a variety of recipes over the years but this one for gluten-free blueberry banana out muffins has been a hit on many levels: Healthy? Check. Tasty? Check. Liked (loved) by the kids? Check. Easy to make? You guessed it, check!

I’ve made these muffins with both regular unbleached flour and GF flour and you can’t tell the difference, they’re that good

If you’re gluten-free, you know how satisfying it is when you find a recipe that doesn’t taste like cardboard, isn’t loaded with sugar, and is as good (maybe better?!) than the regular version. Whip up a batch of these for weekday breakfasts or snacks, or add them to your weekend brunch selection. Whatever way you make them, I hope you enjoy them as much as our family does!

Whip up a batch of these cookies in just 20 minutes!

We’re heading into baking season (and bake sale season… and cookie exchange season…!) and while we have favourite classics, it’s always fun to try something new. I recently tried this cake mix cookie recipe from MomEh and it’s safe to say we’ll be making them again. Sometimes you just want a recipe that’s quick and easy, no fuss, and these cake mix cookies are perfect for that- especially if you’re looking for ideas to make for bake sales and cookie exchanges!

1 box of cake mix (I used the one with sprinkles already mixed in)

1/2 cup softened butter or vegetable oil

1 egg

Optional: food colouring and/ or sprinkles 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven according to cake mix and line cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. Combine wet ingredients in one bowl and dry ingredients in another (if your cake mix doesn’t have sprinkles already mixed in, add them to the dry ingredients). Mix together until batter is a smooth consistency
  3. Roll into approx 1 tsp size balls, spacing them about 2″ apart
  4. Bake for 10- 15 minutes or until edges start to turn golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool and enjoy!

The cookies in this post were made using a regular cake mix, but we also made a batch using a gluten-free cake mix and they turned out just as delicious.

Tip: If you make these cookies using a gluten-free cake mix, simply scoop batter onto cookie sheets if you can’t get the batter to form a ball.

For this recipe, I used a Betty Crocker Cake Mix and added sprinkles, but we’ve tried a few different gluten-free cake mixes including Kinnikinnick, and XO Baking CO and have enjoyed them. Your local grocery store probably carries some, but you can also find a variety on Amazon

Easy Gluten Free Apple Crumble Recipe

gluten free apple crumble recipe

Comfort food season is right around the corner and what’s better on cozy evenings than a plate of warm, yummy apple crumble? Top with some vanilla ice cream for extra decadence… yummmmm. A friend brought one over a few weeks ago and when a neighbor gave us some apples from her tree I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them. Gluten-free crumbles are an easy way to combine all the goodness of a pie without having to fret over perfecting the crust (something I’m trying to find a good gluten-free recipe for).  View Post

Gluten Free Pull Apart Cinnamon Rolls

Who doesn’t love their house smelling of baking in the oven? This recipe is yummy. Just. Plain. Yummy. And it’s perfect to make for Christmas morning as a sweet brekkie while you open presents. I came across a recipe on Pinterest a while ago for cinnamon roll bread and thought I’d adapt it and make a few changes for GF cinnamon rolls. You can make this one of two ways: baked in a bread pan or on a baking sheet. This does make a difference and while I think the roll baked in the bread pan looked better, my taste testers (aka family) preferred the roll baked on the baking sheet (I’ve got photos below to show you how differently they turn out). I also made up two batches: a GF one (which is in the above photo) and a batch using regular flour (in the photos below). The nice thing is you don’t have to make any adjustments to the measurements between a GF and regular version, you’ll just find that they bake up differently (which is pretty much how I find these recipes always go anyways). You can prep everything ahead of time and simply pop the rolls in the oven on Christmas morning or enjoy whipping up a batch for a cozy Boxing Day snack. Either way, it’s hard to resist something that’s this cinnamon-y good!



Ingredients

For the buns
4 cups gluten free flour (I use a blend of coconut and brown rice flour- or swap for your favourite regular flour)
1/4 cup water (you may need to add a little more to achieve the dough consistency you desire)
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup eggnog or milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the filling


6 tbsp butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt

For the frosting


4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup icing sugar
1- 2 tbsp of milk or cream to thin (optional)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients until well combined; add the eggnog/ milk, water, and vanilla extract and stir until dough has formed with no lumps (you may want to use your hands to help with this). Set dough aside.

2. Mix together the ingredients for the filling and set aside (if you find it hard to get rid of the lumps, warm over low heat until the brown sugar and butter have melted).

3. Separate the dough into two equal halves and roll into rectangles approx 1/8″ thick onto pieces of parchment paper.

4. Pour the filling over the dough and spread out evenly. Roll the dough into a log, pinching the end of the dough to the roll to hold it together. Make diagonal cuts into the dough almost all the way to the bottom.

5. Transfer the rolls to a baking sheet or into a bread pan and bake: if using a baking sheet it will take 25- 30 minutes; if using a bread pan it will take approx 40- 45 minutes. Bake until the top and edges are turning golden brown.

6. While the cinnamon rolls are baking, mix together the frosting. Add more or less milk until you get the consistency you want.

7. Remove the rolls from the oven and drizzle with the frosting (tip: keep some aside for dipping). Serve hot.

See the difference: The roll on the left was baked on the baking sheet and the roll on the right was baked in a bread pan. Both delicious, but a little different. It’s totally worth trying both methods to see which you prefer.

Easy Chocolate Layer Cake {Gluten Free}

Does anyone else crave comfort food this time of year? For me that’s carbs (well, I pretty much crave cabs all year, but let’s not go there right now…) and sweet things like baking. If you saw my post last week with The Sweet Life Apparel, you saw the chocolate cake Ari and I whipped up together. It was one of our messier endeavours (and crankier- at least in the beginning- for Ari), but we ended up having a blast and the cake turned out amazing (sprinkles EVERYWHERE!). While we still make everything gluten free, I’ve been able to add dairy back into what we eat since the end of Summer, re- introducing it in meals and baking. I’m not going to lie, I’ve missed cooking/ baking with butter. And milk. But that’s not to say this recipe wouldn’t turn out if you used a dairy- free milk, I just enjoyed the chance to try it out (this is the first cake I’ve made with milk in a long time, yahoo!). It’s about as easy as it gets, with simple ingredients, and if you’re like us, the decorating is at least half the fun (and most of the mess 😉 ). If you want a sweet treat for holiday parties, why not whip up this baby? Enjoy. 

Ingredients:

2 cups gluten free flour (I used 1 cup brown rice flour & 1 cup coconut flour)
use an unbleached or all- purpose flour if not gluten free
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

Decoration ideas:
– frosting (I cheated and used the store- bought stuff)
– sprinkles
– toasted coconut
– fresh flowers
whatever you like! 😉

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cake pans with parchment paper- use two 9- inch pans for 2 layers, or four 6- inch pans for 4 layers

2. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Tip: to help make it lighter- especially if making a gluten free cake- sift the dry ingredients to aerate them.

3. In another bowl, combine the wet ingredients and slowly add to the dry mix, stirring to avoid lumps as you go.

4. When combined, pour the batter into your pans, distributing equally among the 2 or 4 that you’re using. Bake for 30 -35 minutes until you can insert a toothpick into the centre and it comes out clean. If baking four 6- inch cakes, bake them two at a time.

5. Allow to cool before removing from pans. Use frosting between the layers and frost the outside however you like. We went more for a naked cake look (at least that’s what I”m calling it!), but pick an icing/ decoration that you like. This is a nice, moist cake that’s not too rich/ heavy so there’s lots of options.

6. Decorate to your heart’s content!
