I finally found a dairy free chocolate hazelnut spread (also meaning that it is 100% vegan!) Having only 7 grams of sugar per serving, it is not nearly as sweet as Nutella, which has 3 times as much sugar! It certainly is just as delicious though, if not more delicious because you know you’re eating something natural.

Bought these from an AMAZING allergen free bakery called Sensitive Sweets!
I’ve tried their bread, brownies, cupcakes, cookies, donuts, and they are all absolutely delicious. Best of all, nothing is overpriced. 

click photos to englarge: from left to right, chocolate brownie topped with cookie crumbles, cake push pop (brilliant idea), and last but not least, the cookie dough truffle.

If you live in Orange County, you must come here! You will not be disappointed!

The most simple treat: a grilled chocolate peanut butter sandwich.
Here’s how I made it-
What you’ll need:A George Foreman grill2 slices of Udi GF bread (or other brand of gluten free bread)About a teaspoon of Earth Balance Butter SpreadAs much peanut butter as desired Dairy free dark chocolate sprinkles (most brands of chocolate sprinkles are already dairy free, look at the ingredients!)
Instructions:
1. Get one of your slices of bread and spread as much peanut butter as desired on it. Sprinkle your chocolate sprinkles on top of the peanut butter. Put the other slice of bread on top.
2. Lightly spread Earth Balance butter on the top and bottom of the sandwich (not too much is needed, a little bit goes a long way)
3. Plug in your George Foreman grill and place the sandwich on the grill and close. Wait until it beeps, and you’re done! The chocolate sprinkles will melt and you’ll have this sandwich that’s crisp on the outside, and ooey gooey, peanut butter & chocolatey on the inside.
So simple and so delicious.
*This recipe would be vegan if Udi bread did not contain eggs. There’s many gluten free bread mixes that could easily be made vegan using egg replacer.

My favorite Gluten-Free bread brands

My 2 favorite brands are Glutino and Udi. Their bread is just like real bread. It’s not crumbly and dry like most gluten free breads I’ve tried. My favorite thing to do with this bread is use it for sandwiches, or making peanut butter toast in the morning.

Both of these brands also have tons of other awesome gluten free products. My favorites from Glutino are their pretzels and their pie crust mix, and my favorites from Udi are their cinnamon rolls and chocolate muffins. Everything is delicious and you can’t even tell you’re eating something that’s gluten free!

Just a note for preparing the Udi cinnamon rolls and muffins: they are usually found in the frozen section. The packaging unfortunately does not have instructions on how to heat it up, but I’ve found that the best way is to keep them frozen, and when you’re ready to eat one, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes. (Preparing them in the microwave is fast and easy, but doesn’t produce results that are nearly as good as when you bake them.)

*Both breads are dairy, soy, and nut free, but both contain eggs.

I baked this awesome zucchini bread and the best little zucchini bread muffins today! 

I followed this recipe that I found on google, and just swapped out the flour for a GF All Purpose flour.

Here’s the recipe:

It’s free of

  • Gluten 
  • Dairy
  • Soy

Ingredients-
3 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 1/4 cups white sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions-
1. Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch pans. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

2. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl. 

3. Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well. Stir in zucchini and nuts until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans. 

4. Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean. (if you decide to use some of the batter for muffins instead of a second bread, bake the muffins for about 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.) Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes. Remove bread from pan, and completely cool.

And here’s a simple icing recipe:

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon almond milk (or other dairy alternative)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together until well combined.
