A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye).

A gluten-free diet is used to treat celiac disease. Gluten causes inflammation in the small intestines of people with celiac disease. Eating a gluten-free diet helps people with celiac disease control their signs and symptoms and prevent complications.

Grain-free Tiramisu Double Chocolate Brownies – Gluten-free + Refined Sugar-free  this recipe does contain some dairy (eggs & cream cheese) by Tasty Yummies

Tiramisu Brownies
Yields 10 Brownies
Prep time 20 minutes
Cook time 30 minutes

Ingredients Brownie Base

  • 2 1/2 cups cashew flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup bitter sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup freshly brewed espresso (add 1 sachet instant coffee and dissolve for a more intense coffee flavor)
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup raw virgin coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoon unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 eggs

Ingredients Tiramisu Cream

  • 8oz mascarpone
  • 8oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 egg yolks (only if you have fresh eggs; it will taste good without yolks, too)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (in place of Amaretto)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking dish with parchment paper (I use a square spring form, 9×9″ – similar to this).
Add coconut oil to a small saucepan and melt over low heat.
In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients for brownie base: cashew flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and chocolate chips.
Using a medium sized bowl, mix all wet ingredients for brownie base: espresso, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, apple sauce and eggs.
Make sure the eggs are mixed in well and there are no strings. If necessary, use a hand mixer.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix (by hand) until well incorporated. The batter will be thick, that’s ok!
Fill brownie batter into your baking dish and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes. Do the tooth pick test: If you stick a tooth pick down the middle and batter crumbs stick to it, you need to continue baking.
Allow brownie base to fully cool off.

Mascarpone and cream cheese should be at room temperature. Combine all Tiramisu Cream ingredients and mix with hand mixer until you have a smooth cream.
Spread on top of your now cold brownie base and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Brownie base by itself keeps for up to 5 days. Tiramisu cream containing egg yolk should be consumed within 2 days.

Vegan Gluten- Free Waffles with Raspberry Lemon Syrup

Crispy gluten-free waffles that are ready in under 25 minutes. A sweet-tart raspberry lemon syrup is the perfect topping.
by The Fitchen
Serves: 4


INGREDIENTS
Wet:
1¼ c. coconut milk
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
¼ c. melted coconut oil
1½ t. vanilla extract


Dry:
1 c. white rice flour
½ c. tapioca flour
¼ c. coconut flour
1 T. flax seed meal
⅛ t. sea salt
1½ t. baking powder
2 T. cane sugar
¼ t. cinnamon [optional]
olive oil spray


Raspberry Lemon Syrup:
⅔ c. maple syrup
4 T. lemon juice
1⅓ c. raspberries [frozen or fresh]


INSTRUCTIONS
In a medium bowl, combine coconut milk and apple cider vinegar. Set aside for 5 minutes.
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and use a fork to mix.
In the coconut milk/vinegar bowl, add vanilla, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil and mix well.
Add wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients. Use a spoon to mix until mostly smooth.
To make the raspberry syrup, combine ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat on low. Use a fork to smash the berries and stir until the mixture is very liquid. Set aside for later, when you smother your waffles in it.
Preheat a waffle iron on medium. Spray lightly with olive oil.
Scoop about ⅓ c. of batter into the iron and cook for 2-3 minutes. Time will vary depending on your waffle iron.
Drizzle raspberry syrup all over your stack of waffles and enjoy!


NOTES
This waffle batter is thick! Don’t let the texture fool you, that is what gives the waffles their perfect crispy outside and dense inside.

Ok, I have to ask, if you're not eating gluten, where do you find all the flours to make these foods. We live an hour or more away from any really good stores (although we're getting a Publix soon, they've broken ground and its gonna be a reality). Our Walmart doesn't carry a lot of the good for you stuff. Not sure why.

What are some sources you can find these flours other than Walmart?

Mara - even our Walmart has started carrying some gluten-free flours, so you might ask yours if they would consider carrying them. So many more people world-wide are recognizing this as a real issue - either celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity. Most health food stores will have the largest selections, as they cater to people with food preferences of all kinds. Gluten-free flours can also be ordered online from Amazon or you could google it to find them all over the place.
