gluten-free apple crisp

From 09/23/2011 (by Eye-Fi)

Technically, mine isn't gluten-free, since I added a bit of spelt flour to thicken up the "crisp," as the recipe said to "crumble" the topping over the apples, and mine was too wet to crumble. It left a bit to be desired, but with some ice cream on top, it tasted pretty good. I like that it's sweetened with agave nectar. And, we picked the apples ourselves this morning.

healthy spelt banana muffins

I stumbled across this tasty recipe for wheat-free banana muffins here when we had two ripe bananas that no one wanted to eat. I'm finding that spelt flour (not gluten-free) is a nice substitute for all-purpose or wheat flour in baking.

  • 2 tsp Baking Powder

  • 2/3 cup No Sugar So Delicious Coconut Milk
  • 2 cups Mashed Banana

~Preheat Oven to 325 degrees and spray muffin tin with baking spray (I found a coconut oil one and it's great!)
