Gluten free banana bread with crunchy cinnamon struesel is delicious any time of day!
Paired with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, these beer-infused cakes are a delicious treat!
It is strawberry season here….yes, I said strawberry season. While everyone up north is freezing, down here in South Florida we are just beginning to harvest. U-pick farms will open soon and there will be an abundance of sweet, ripe strawberries.
You may be wondering…
Why would you put beer in a Strawberry Shortcake?
Normally, I wouldn’t, but awhile back I was in the midst of taste testing gluten-free beers for the 8 Gluten-Free Beers to Celebrate Oktoberfest post and I came across New Planet’s Blonde Ale. I had already planned to use one of the beers for a recipe, and had been thinking brownies, but the crisp sweet taste of the Blonde Ale made me think dessert and I wanted to use it. I remembered I had a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Vanilla Cupcake mix sitting in the pantry and a thought of genius struck me. Why not use the beer to make the cupcakes? No one is paying me for this idea (though if they wanted to I would not refuse!), it was just a light bulb moment. I originally tried out these cupcakes in October, but I wanted to wait until strawberries were in season to share!
Delicious cookie bars filled with peanut butter, oats and chocolate. There is something for everyone!
Can’t forget about the cookies!
This holiday season has me running around like a chicken with my head cut off. It is my daughters first “real” Christmas. Technically it was last Christmas since she was born on the 23rd, but we were in the hospital, so it doesn’t really count. There is so much excitement surrounding her first Christmas. Taking pictures and buying presents, I almost forgot about making out favorite holiday cookie. Monster cookies are awesome and I needed a cookie for our cookie exchange. They have something in them for everyone- peanut butter, m&ms, oatmeal, chocolate chips. I knew they would be perfect.
Rich and Chocolaty, these gluten free brownies are a treat everyone can enjoy!
Baked in a ceramic mini loaf pan, these gluten-free banana breads are perfect for everyone on your gift list!
Nothing says Christmas like fresh baked banana bread!
Before going gluten-free, every Christmas I would bake tons of mini banana breads and pass them out as little gifts. Everyone goes bananas for banana bread! This simple recipe was inspired by a recipe of a good friend (I don’t know where she got it, but it’s really good!). Miss Jane is quite the expert when it comes to banana bread.
I couldn’t let becoming gluten-free ruin my Christmas tradition. I had to make the recipe gluten-free. Turns out it was not that hard and no one can tell that it is gluten-free. I get requests for this recipe all the time. You are going to love it!
