Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies with Dates (Gluten Free)

Gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookiesAs a vegan with celiac disease… one thing that I thought I may never enjoy again was a classic Tollhouse style chocolate chip cookie. So I took it upon myself to de-glutenize and veganize a recipe I happen to consider perfect in every way (except for all
the animal ingredients it calls for, of course). Let me tell you … I kicked its ass.

I am betting that no-one could tell these cookies are missing like 90% of the original ingredients- and why waste your time telling anyone when you can be stuffing your face with such deliciousness? And since I’m a glutton for tastiness–-I added little bits of Medjool dates.

Banana-Scented Vanilla Cake or Cupcakes (Gluten Free)

banana cupcakes with chocolate frosting

This cake has just a light banana flavor combined with fragrant vanilla. The banana helps add stability and moistness, so don’t leave it out to make a vanilla-only cake. It is such a subtle flavor that is most lovely, and the cake is fluffy and moist, perfect for any special occasion. Recipe reprinted from Let Them Eat Vegan* by Dreena Burton (Da Capo, © 2012), by permission.

Almond Thumbprint Cookies – Vegan & Gluten Free

almond thumbprint cookies - vegan and gluten freeThese cookies are as simple to make as they are beautiful. Use any flavor of preserves you’d like in these…. I happen to really love the amber glow of the apricot preserves. A thicker jam or fruit preserve is key to having a uniform color puddle in your cookies. Sprinkle with a touch of confectioners sugar for the ultimate eye-popper. Recipe and photo contributed by Allyson Kramer, from Manifest Vegan. more→

Gluten-Free Poured Pizza Crust

I was inspired to create this pizza crust after attending a gluten-free baking class at the Culinary Institute of America. I had tried packaged gluten-free pizza mixes with allergen-free substitutions, and I wasn’t completely happy with any of them. Most of them used yeast and required a rise cycle. They took too long to prepare and were just a little too hard to sink your teeth into. The pizza crust we made in Chef Coppedge’s class also used yeast and still required some rising time, but he did something I had never seen before: He taught us how to form individual pizza slices, using a pastry bag to spread the dough on a baking sheet. more→
