Gluten Free Baked Donuts

IMG_1034

I know I haven't been around for a while, but we made these donuts this morning and I just had to share! They are absolutely wonderful! We are always looking to try new things especially for breakfast. I need QUICK and EASY and GOOD. It is hard to find recipes that meet all 3 criteria especially when you are baking from scratch!  They were truely a hit!  I made one batch just to try them (made 6 donuts) and the kids BEGGED me to double the batch and make more, so we did…..thought we would share 🙂

Here are the ingredients:

1 cup gluten free all purpose flour

3 Tbsp coconut sugar (can use regular sugar)

3 Tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. buttermilk

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 large egg

1/2-1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

Vanilla Glaze:

1/2 cup confectioner's sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 tsp. milk

Directions:

Add all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  Then add wet ingredients.  Stir until combined well.  Pour batter into a donut pan filling 2/3 the way.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.  Let cool.

Once cooled, mix together ingredients for vanilla glaze.  Dip top of donut in glaze and allow to set.  Repeat.

Enjoy!

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies as Promised! Updated Version!

IMG_6838

I have been making chocolate chip cookies since the first year we went gluten free.  It is something that a kid just shouldn't have to miss out on….or an adult for that matter!  I started off with this recipe and have been making it for years.  You will see that the new recipe is not that much different.  I lessened the amount of all purpose flour mix from 2 1/4 cups down to 1 1/4 cup and substituted the other cup with 1/2 coconut flour and 1/2 almond flour.  Oh the difference!  Try it for yourself, then let me know what you think!  We love them and those who are not gluten free, cannot tell the difference from regular gluten cookies!  We say they are even better!

 

 

 

Gluten Free Meltaway Cookies

These are so good!  So light and buttery tasting!  I was inspired by a pinterest post I found, but used my gluten free flour blend to make it a gluten free success!  These are sodium free, egg free, and could be made dairy free as well!

To make the cookies:

1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)

3/4 cup confectioners sugar

3/4 cup cornstarch

1 cup gluten free flour

Cream together the first 3 ingredients.  Add the flour and continue to mix well.   Drop the cookie dough by the teaspoonful on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Let them cool completely before removing from the cookie sheet.  These are delicate cookies and will crumble if not handled carefully.

Once cooled completely, you can eat plain, or add some icing. 

We added some icing.  We (me and my oldest) experimented some.  This is what we came up with and loved it!

Lemon icing:

Lemon zest of 1 lemon

1 cup of confectioners sugar

Juice from the lemon approx. 1-2 Tbsp.

Mix together but start with the 1 Tbsp. of lemon juice 1st, you can always add more.  You want the icing to be a consistancy that you can drizzle over the cookies.  Once to this consisitancy, do just that…drizzle the icing over the cookies.  Let the icing set, then enjoy! 

 

Nutella Fudgesicles

Nutella is one of our favorite things around here.  We love smearing it on toast or crackers, dipping our fruit in it, and now, making fudgesicles!  These are so easy and fun to do.  We experimented for the first time today with this.  This is what we did:

1 cup 2% milk

1/3 cup Nutella

Whisk together until well blended.  Pour into popsicle holders.  This amount made 5 popsicles, but it depends on how big and how many popsicle holders you have.  You can easily double, or triple this recipe!  Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 

Gluten Free Chocolate Krispy Delights

I am always seeing such yummy looking granola bars and oatmeal cookies that look so good!  My little celiac is one of those who cannot have the oats either, not even the gluten free oats.  She misses them so….I recently came across a recipe that was making these cookies, except using oats.  I thought I would substitue the oats with Kellogg's Gluten Free Rice Krispies and they turned out great!  I had to hurry and take the picture because all 4 kids were eating them up!  They will definately be a hit!
