Gluten Free Grain Free Dinner Biscuits and Pizza Crust

In my last post I discussed almond meal verses blanched almond flour. You can read the post here.

I know some of you are itching to see my almond meal recipes, but like I said, I found blanched almond flour on sale at Aldi of all places. So I bought it and have been trying out recipes I printed off the internet a long time ago and have been waiting in my “recipes to try binder.”

Almond Flour Biscuits

I found this gluten free, grain free biscuit recipe. It is very good, but a bit on the salty tasting side. I only made one half of the recipe. Out of respect to the original recipe creator, I am sending you to her site to grab the recipe. You can find the biscuit recipe here. (This one does contain egg).

Then there was this pizza crust. This was probably the best gluten free pizza crust I have ever had. And it’s grain free too. Seriously, this crust is M-A-R-V-E-L-O-U-S! It is by the same blogger as the above mentioned biscuits and she states to not half the recipe because it is so good. Well I did half the recipe and wish I hadn’t. I could have easily eaten two pizzas with this crust. You can find this recipe here.

Almond Flour Pizza

These recipes are so great I wish I had created them, but the least I can do is pass them along. Both of these recipes use blanched almond flour. I do not think they would work or at least not near as well with almond meal. So, treat yourself to some blanched almond flour and taste gluten free, grain free food like never before.

Almond Meal vs. Blanched Almond Flour

Almond Meal Flour

Many gluten free bakers and Paleo diet followers use blanched almond flour in their baked goods. I always find this intriguing, but also cost-prohibitive as blanched almond flour is expensive. Blanched almond flour is almonds without their skins ground up into a fine flour. Almond meal is ground up almonds with their skins on and is a course meal. There is a difference in how the two perform and usually cannot be used interchangeably. Almond meal is $5.99 for a 16 oz. bag at Trader Joe’s. Almond flour usually runs around $13-15 dollars for a 16 oz. bag. I recently … Continue reading

Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Blueberry Banana Smoothie

If you are a fan of food blogs, I’m sure you heard mention of high-speed or high-powered blenders such as Vitamix, Ninja, or Blendtec by now. I’ve finally joined the ranks and I am not looking back! Never will I go back to a standard blender again! My high-speed/powered blender can obliterate anything! In mere seconds. Take this blueberry smoothie for instance. (Yes, the picture isn’t great….I had to take a picture of leftovers and before it got gobbled up). In a regular blender, blueberries do not get completely pureed and you are left with chunks of blueberry stuck in … Continue reading

The Gluten Free Cheat Sheet Book Review

Gluten Free Cheat Sheet

If you have read my blog, or my submissions for My Life With Food Allergies, you know that I really love cookbooks. Today I have the pleasure of reviewing The Gluten Free Cheat Sheet by April Peveteaux. I was given the book (for free), but the opinions are all my own (non-affiliate link). April Peveteaux writes with sass and humor. This book is part “how to go gluten free” and part cookbook. It is a must-read for the newly “going gluten free” person; anyone who needs to go gluten free whether due to Celiac, intolerance, wheat allergy, or auto-immune diseases … Continue reading

Quit Your Food Intolerances/Allergies With These 10 Tips

Tips for Quitting

For me, changing my diet to exclude dairy, eggs, gluten, corn and refined sugars was not that hard. I wanted to feel better!

Gluten Free Graham Crackers

Buckwheat grahams

One of the main reasons I do not post every day, or every other day or even weekly is because I will only put up recipes that actually work and taste great. Honestly, I am surprised by the number of food bloggers that “put up recipes” that do not work. I know my way around a kitchen very well, and if I can’t make a recipe that I read on another’s blog work, then I really don’t think the average reader can. I have had this experience time and again when trying other’s gluten free cracker recipes. I have never … Continue reading
