In Need Of A Good gluten-free/sugar Free Dessert Recipe

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I am searching for a good gluten-free/Sugar Free dessert recipe and was hoping maybe one of you would have one. My mom was just diagnosed with Diabetes a few days ago and I would love to make a dessert for Thanksgiving that both she and my kids can eat.

So, if you have some suggestions, please post them here!

Thank you,

Shannon

Hi Shannon - what type of dessert are you looking for? I have lots on file.

Actually anything would be ok! I wasn't going to be picky because I wasn't sure how easy it would be to cook gluten-free/SF. Cookies or a pie or something would be nice for Thanksgiving. I'll take anything! :-)

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi, I'm not sure this would be good for a main dessert of Thanksgiving but my mom always makes this really good jello mold. It is a combination of sugar free jello and sugar free cool whip. She makes it in a ring and then scoops cool whip into the center. It slices up almost like a pie filling. It is very good.

when you say 'sugar free', i am not sure your stand on artificial sweeteners...

however, i think that a lot of desserts don't even need them (or much).

any sort of pie would be good - if you use some sweeter fruits, that would definitely do the job.

or even a compote on ice cream?

i'll get them tonight when i'm at home on my computer, but did you want ones with artificial sweetenres, or naturally sweetened ones?

Nicole,

Thats a good idea and sounds yummy! Thanks!

Lorka,

I am not anti-Splenda. Is it terrible for kids? I typically don't use it, but am not opposed to it on occasion. I don't think that having it a few times a year will kill anyone.

Thanks again,

Shannon

Fancy meeting you here!!! I could hook you up w/ zillions of recipes. Take any favorite recipe and use that Stashu all-purpose flour mix w/ splenda for Baking. I have some killer recipes! You can convert almost any recipe. I'm loving that Stashu flour mix. I just baked banana bread. I used applesauce instead of oil and it turned out great!!! I have a great chocolate cake recipe that you make in a bundt pan. YUM!!! Call me!

You might want to consider a cheese cake dessert. On the low carb forum I participate in they're always very popular. You can find tons of recipes here: http://forum.lowcarber.org/forumdisplay.php?f=41

Also check out celiac.com or org. there is a clickable recipes section on the side

I have tried a few they are good.

here are two of mine that you might enjoy. i made them for thanksgiving. i will put sugar-free ideas in brackets.

[pineapple/peach crisp in crockpot]

good with ice cream! i make my own, but you can use whatever you would normally use. this also good as is, or in crepes.

3 large, fresh peaches, sliced

1 600mL can of crushed pineapple, drained with 1/4 c. reserved juice

1/3 c. raisins

1/4 c. sucanat (use about 1/3 c. splenda, if that is what you like, or agave syrup if you can)

2/3 c. quinoa flakes

1/3 c. butter [i use SoyGarden]

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. coconut extract

2 tsp. cornstarch, dissolved in reserved juice

grease crockpot. mix together fruit and pour into bottom. mix remaining ingredients, then pour on top. loosely cover (so steam can escape) and cook on high for 2 hours.

[pumpkin pie]

2 c. fresh or canned pumpkin, pureed (NOT pie filling)

2/3 c. Sucanat (splenda, about 2/3 a cup or more. we don't like things 'too' sweet here, so you might want to increase it)

1/2 c. unsweetened soymilk

1 c. water

6 tbsp. cornstarch

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. cloves

1/2 tsp. salt

crust:

1/4 c. teff flour

3/4 c. Mesa Sunrise cereal, crunched

3 tbsp. vegetable oil

2 tbsp. soymilk

2 tbsp. Sucanat (Splenda)

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. xantham gum

mix crust ingredients together, and press into lightly oiled pie plate. Bake at 350F for

10 minutes. remove and let cool.

meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine pumpkin, Sucanat and spices. Add water and milk, and bring to a boil,

then add cornstarch. Boil again, then simmer until thickened.

once cooled, add into crust, and bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

*note: i made the crust and filling the night before, so i did not have to wait until

they were cooled.

we have a local pizza joint called Stashu's. They make the best Gluten Free rolls, calzones, and pizza. They also have an all-purpose flour mix that is WONDERFUL!! I made the most delicious banana bread yesterday. You cannot tell the difference. I even use applesauce intead of oil. Our community is so lucky to have this gentleman. It took him two years to come up with the pizza crust and it has been a Godsend! :)

I know he would ship it to you. The owner's name is Jim Krohl and he is a wonderful man. The phone number is 309-797-9449. This is the number for Stashu's. It's a sausage shop/pizza place. Ask for Jim, or leave a message. Two brothers own it, but Jim is the one who developed it. Tell him you heard about it from me, Kandi, on the Celiac message board. He's a great guy and I'm sure he'd be happy to ship it to you. Have you tried other all purpose flour mixes? I'm telling you, this stuff is great. I baked banana bread three days ago, today is day four, and it's still fresh and wonderful. Good luck!
