About this blog

This is a area for me and select others to post recipes we have created to meet certain dietary needs. I will be compiling many of my recipes posted over the years here for ease of access. I would love feedback, pictures, etc of said recipes if you try them out. PLEASE NOTE many of these recipes are made to meet dietary restrictions, all will be Gluten, Dairy, Corn, and Soy free. Some will be Vegan, Keto, Paleo, etc and I will try to tag and label  them to help people out.

The goal is to make foods, that will give some symbolence to the old foods people used to eat, or meet cravings, all have a focus on being healthier alternatives, and although odd will help people to try to enjoy food and life again.


About me, I am a Chef with Celiac, I worked in the food industry for over 7 years before being diagnosed with celiac and took my culinary lessons to create specialty dietary foods for people with a limited diet. I also run a small bakery and do gluten free and grain free baked goods and almond butters selling at local farmers markets. I have been active on the celiac.com community for a few years and often give advice etc. I do have Asperger Syndrome so often come off odd and with quirks.

Most ingredients for the recipes can be found on either

Grain Free "Pastry" Pie Crust

I have created a pie crust before with almond flour, but it was more of a gram cracker. This time playing with one of my favorites, coconut flour, I have created more pastry like crust.

48g (1/4 cup) Erythritol like truvia, pyure, or now foods blend avoid swerve for this as granular worked best
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
7tbsp Nutiva Butter Flavored coconut oil melted.
2 large eggs room temperature (must leave out to get to room temperature or the oil will harden.

1. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly oil a pie pan
2. Mix dry ingrdients in a bowl
3. Combine eggs and liquid ingredients in other bowl and mix well then pour into the dry and mix well
4. Put dough into pie pan and using your fingers and hands work it out evenly spreading it to form your pie crust.
5. Bake for 10-12 mins
6. Take out of the oven and using the back of a spoon or spatula press the crust back down into the pan.

Protein Sticky Dough

This is a fun one just a small bowl of sticky gooey dough fun to eat with a small spoon, its stretchy and oh so gooey. Careful though it is packed full of fiber.
This is a acquired taste, I for one was the kid that ate the cinnamon rolls out of the oven before they were done...I loved that super gluten stretchy yeast doughy centers and that is what this replicates.

2 heaping scoops pure pea protein (36-40g)
1/2-1tsp pure cinnamon
Pinch of baking powder
1/8th heap tsp pure uncut stevia (I use Nunaturals or Pyure for sugar one feel free to use 1-2tbsp of sugar and up the liquid the same amount)
1/2-1tsp unflavored psyllum husk (1/2 tsp is suggested for standard dough, if you want this to be super chewy like the center of pop can Pillsbury cinnamon roll half cooked raw then up it.)
8oz hot water
Optional add 8 drops of a extract.

1. Wisk your protein, cinnamon, baking powder, and psyllum togheter
2. In a measuring cup put the stevia and optional extracts in the water and heat 2mins in a microwave
3. Stir the water then pour into the dry and fold well with a fork til it starts to get sticky and doughy, you can zap the mix for 10-12 seconds to make it super stretchy.

https://www.amazon.com/Protein-Isolate-North-American-Farms/dp/B00NBIUGA2/ Comes in 5 and 1lb containers. The 5lb is the most cost effective proetin powder on the market
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PHCD6OS/ Spicely Organics Ceylon certified gluten free
https://www.amazon.com/Metamucil-Smooth-Texture-Sugar-Free-Unflavored/dp/B001H9X8IY This is one form, I get it from another brand local stores but you want unflavored/unsweetened powder.
https://www.amazon.com/Nustevia-white-Stevia-NoCarbs-Ounces/dp/B000HC0M1S/ Pure Uncut NuNatural Steiva 1/8tsp is like a tbsp of sugar or more.

Two-Per Paleo Porridge

This is a fun blend, can be a bit thin, and consistency is dependent on a hand blender and how much you work with it. But easy to recall, and your choice of adding a extra extract and jam of choice changes it up. I made a orange one this morning.
2 cups milk of choice (or water)
2 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp ground flax
2 tbsp almond meal or butter
2 tbsp sweetener of choice (I use swere)
2 tbsp Jam of choice (I use sugar free smuckers)
2 tsp vanilla
(Optional fun extracts for any dessert your desire, Look up http://www.lorannoils.com/1-ounce-larger-sizes[1/2tsp of their supers will do] for any flavor you could imagine cheap. Or for a premium look up https://www.capellaflavors.com/4oz)
2 ways
1. Blend water (not the milk), and all other ingredients in a 2 cups measuring cup
2. Heat 2 mins in the microwave, pulse with hand blender again and pulse heat til it starts to boil, blend again.
3.Pour into a large 4+cup pot and add your milk blending with the hand blender then simmer while stirring and it should thicken up.

2 tbsp coconut, olive, or avocado oil
2tsp seasoning of choice divided 1. Put a baking sheet or pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 375F

3. On a sheet of double covered foil dump your ball of dough. using a sheet of wax paper over this and either you palms or a dough roller spread out into a thin sheet evenly. (the thinner the crispier)
4. Using a dough knife cut the sheet into squares1.5-2" be sure your not cutting the foil only slight pressure should be used and a non sharp dough knife. Now sprits with a bit of spray oil and sprinkle the other tsp of seasoning of the top
5. Place the foil on the stone/cookie sheet that is preheated in the oven and let cook for 15-20mins, Then turn off the oven and crack the door slightly and let dry out for 30-45mins
6, When dried out and crsipied you should be able to peel back the foil from under neath and remove the sheet of chips breaking them along the lines you made. If you find them to be soft or chewy you need to increase the bake time The edge should be a bit "extra" crispy and browned. I loved using my Chili & Cheese vegan seasoning on this, you will soon be able to purchase this in stores if everything goes right. My nacho or ranch seasoning also go great with this.
OH if you want a "Cheeze It" like flavor use 1-2tbsp nutritional yeast, and Nutiva Butter flavored coconut oil

Vegan Bacon Cheese Dip
Feel free to half the recipe for a smaller batch this makes about 5-6cups depending of if you want to thin it out a little or like it extra thick.
10tbsp coconut flour
6-8tbsp Nutritional Yeast (I used 6 but 8 makes it nuttier)
2 tsp Smoked paprika
2 tsp Psyllium husk unflavored
4 cups unsweetened Nut milk (I used cashew makes it extra creamy)
4tbsp Coconut Aminos
9tsp Liquid Smoke (I used Hickory)
4tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
3-4tsp maple syrup (I used sugar free Lakanto Maple) 1.Mix dry ingredients in a bowl wit a whisk breaking up clumps and incorporating well.
2. place in a blender add the milk and the liquid ingredients then blend well til it is all mixed
3. In a sauce pan or small pot heat over low-medium heat stirring constantly this will thicken up as it gets hot, NOTE it will get really thick, feel free to water down to desired consistency with more cashew milk. I loved this flavor, goes great over broccoli just heat it up and pour it over stuff or use it as a dip. I made a gratin potato dish with it even thinned out more and poured over potato slices and baked. Can be used in a broccoli casserole this way. Can also be used anywhere you want Bacon Cheese Sauce. NO starch, hardly any carbs, and keto friendly. Best of all Vegan

Almond ButterFinger Bars

These were like the insides of butter finger but gooier, can not eat them anymore, especially since they stopped making sugar free coconut flake cereal. Last time I made them with xylitol sugar free honey,  lakanto sugar free golden, and that grain free cereal was last year. Figured I would share the missed love so someone else can have them. Almond Butter Bars 1/4cup (60g) Agave
1tbsp (15g) molasses
3 1/2tbsp coconut sugar (40g)
1cup smooth almond butter (225-240g)
1 1/2 cup (56g) flake cereal (Buckwheat, corn, or coconut flake [check thrive market from blog top link for discount and search their coconut flake cereal for a paleo grain free option])
1/8tsp salt 1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small sauce pan and brink to a boil on medium heat.
2. Boil about a min stirring constantly, then remove from heat.
3. Add almond butter and salt and stir into a paste
4. Add the cereal and stir well to coat, partially crushing the cereal flakes as you stir. Make sure they are evenly coated.
5. Press into a 8x8 pan that lined with parchment paper and place in freezer. After 30-40 min cut into bars before it completely hardens, then return to freezer.
