Gluten Free Bread


One of my challengers, Jen, shared this good gluten free bread recipe.  I excitedly got my ingredients gathered and started mixing it up.  It works up quickly and slices thin which is always good when you are being intentional about portions.  You can find the recipe here 

Serve with a little sliced apple and a healthy nut butter and just maybe a drizzle of honey or 100% fruit spread. 


It’s this easy – no mixer needed.  I used 3 Tbsp organic butter and 3 Tbsp of coconut oil.  Next time I want to try replacing the eggs with ground flax seed (3 Tbsp of water and 1 Tbsp ground flax seed = 1 egg.  Mix well and let thicken for a few minutes)  This is a good alternative for those that need to limit their egg consumption.


Place it in a well greased loaf pan. I used a coconut oil spray.


Bake It.  Let cool for 10 minutes.  Run a butter knife around the edges and flip out.  I use another cooling rack.  Place on top of the loaf pan and flip.  Then I flip back onto another cooling rack.

Even had a chance to straighten out my baking center while the bread was baking.

For 21 Day Fixers – 1 serving = 1 blue container, .5 red container

Cinnamon Bun Scones

Today I’m making this short and sweet and sharing an amazing recipe I found at the blog Recipe Girl.  I made a few changes for my family (used spelt flour, unsweetened almond milk, and cut the glaze in half).  This is now my husband’s favorite take to work coffee break food right now.  So without further is the link where you can find this recipe.     Cinnamon Bun Scones

Here is a picture of the scones I made…

Cheese Scallion Biscuits

I love biscuits because they are fast.  These are extra special because they have a little monterey jack cheese and green scallions.  They are great with dinner, or with a bowl of soup for lunch or split one open for a Breakfast Egg Sandwich.  If you have any leftovers – they freeze well.  Using a gluten free flour mixture can provide a gluten free option.
