Delicious Gluten-​Free Baking

gluten-free.104807Recently I was informed that I am gluten insen­si­tive and, after some resis­tance, I real­ized it could be a healthy choice. I also learned that I do not have to go with­out dessert, which was my biggest con­cern with this diet change.

At the begin­ning of the year, I was in New Zealand, which is far ahead of the USA with non-​gluten options. Most restau­rants offer gluten-​free bread and cafes have deli­cious gluten-​free muffins and cakes. My BFF in NZ intro­duced me to a fan­tas­tic book and blog writ­ten by Eleanor Ozich.

Here are a cou­ple of my recent favorite recipes. You can use gluten-​free flour for any bak­ing, but the sticky apri­cot and almond but­ter pud­dings and coconut oil and lemon short­bread cook­ies do not use any grains, sugar or dairy and are absolutely delicious.

Happy bak­ing.

The col­or­ful foliage is breath­tak­ing in these pho­tos and the kids look adorable in their match­ing out­fits. The Nutt fam­ily really knew how to dress for the occa­sion. This is our third year shoot­ing them, and we look for­ward to see­ing the chil­dren and doc­u­ment­ing how much they’ve grown through­out the years. It’s always a pleasure.
