Grain-Free Bagels (Dairy Free & Paleo)

Grain-Free Bagels (Dairy Free & Paleo) gluten free

I love a freshly toasted bagel with cream cheese. In college, I loved Einstein Bagels so much I would study over there enjoying my bagel and a hot drink on snowy days for hours.

But over the years, I learned a gluten-bagel and cream cheese just don’t love me back. And these days a traditional bagel is not even an option for my Celiac husband. Thank goodness for healthier, allergy-free alternatives!

The beginning of school is not months or weeks away, but days away now.  As my daughter approaches her first full day of school in 1st Grade, I want to make sure I am prepared ahead of time with lots of fulfilling and nourishing breakfast and lunch recipes.

These bagels are a new favorite at our house, toasted and topped with either grass-fed ghee, butter, eggs or jam. I plan to make a large batch a few times a month to have on hand for a great lunch sandwich base.

Feel free to top with chia, poppy and/or sunflower seeds for a tasty topping. I am going to try adding all three seeds with a little garlic and onion powder soon to see if I can re-create my beloved “Everything Bagel.”

Chocolate Tapioca Pudding (Dairy & Gluten Free)

Chocolate Tapioca Pudding (Dairy & Gluten Free)

My best friend Nichole turned me on to Tapioca Pudding about 6 years ago. She is an amazing cook and I love everything she makes, but I really love her incredible homemade desserts!

I’ve been wanting to make a good Old Fashioned Tapioca Pudding with coconut milk for quite some time. I’m so glad I finally did and I love the addition of chocolate to the original recipe.

Banana Coconut Cream Pie! (Raw, Cane Sugar Free & Vegan)

No-Bake, Banana, Coconut, Cream, Pie, raw, vegan, chocolate, sauce, gluten free, grain free, paleo

I’ve wanted to share this recipe with you folks for a few weeks now. I’ve made it 3 times, yep 3 times in the last 3 weeks! We had 5 guests over a period of 3 weeks in our home and then when I would finally try to take a picture before the pie was gone, it would be too late. My kids and hubby would dig into it faster than I could press click on my camera. Ahh life with a family ,eh?!

Anyways…back to the PIE. It’s delicious! And such a healthy alternative to the store bought Banana Cream Pie I used to love in my childhood. Indeed Chocolate Banana Cream Pie was my absolute favorite pie. I used to beg my mom for a slice of it when we would go out to eat on occasion. And my Mom would comply as long as I ate my veggies first. So while I would like my kids to eat their veggies first before digging into this dessert, there is no guilt to be had with eating it all in its lonesome. It’s got some fruit, healthy fats and fiber. Oh and guests that are not gluten free in the least, love it!

No-Bake Banana Coconut Cream Pie! (Raw, Cane Sugar Free & Vegan)
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: Dairy Free, Grain Free, Raw & Vegan
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1/ 2 cup dates
  • 1 can chilled Natural Value coconut milk (or other brand with just the cream)
  • 2 Bananas
  • ⅔ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup agar powder
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
Instructions
  1. Optional: Soak pecans for 8 hours (I do it the night before I make the recipe) in 4 cups of water. Rinse pecans and discard water. Set aside.
  2. Soak the dates in 1 cup of water for 5 minutes. Discard the water and remove the pits from the dates.
  3. Place pecans in the food processor and pulse until ground for 2 minutes. Add in the dates and pulse for another 3 minutes. Take the pecan and date mixture and press it down into a glass pie dish to make a crust. Make sure the crust is evenly spread out to fill out the entire pie dish.
  4. Place the coconut milk, bananas, sugar, agar, vanilla and sea salt into a high speed blender or Vitamix. Press ingredients down prior to starting the blender. Blend on high for 2 minutes.
  5. Carefully pour the "cream" on top of the raw pie crust. Use a spatula to spread the topping out evenly. Place the pie in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Remove from freezer and serve!
  6. Note: I like to add a chocolate drizzle to the pie. I do this by slowly melting dairy-free chocolate chips in a saucepan over the stove. Once the chocolate has melted, let it cool and then drizzle over the pie.

 

Pistachio Gelato (Dairy Free, Cane Sugar Free & Vegan)

I remember the first time I discovered gelato. I was on a road trip in college with my best friend and we were headed back to Boulder, CO from Moab, UT. We stopped in Glenwood Springs to hit up the hot springs after a camping and hiking weekend. My friend mentioned we should check out the Gelato store on the corner. I had no idea what gelato was. She said it was better than ice cream. How was that possible I thought?! And indeed it was!

Years later another friend mentioned how amazing pistachio gelato was. I was pretty skeptical. I loved traditional gelato flavors: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, raspberry, but hadn’t ventured into more exotic flavors at the time. So I gave it a go a few years back….and it was aaaammmaaazing!

My kids love pistachios. They truly go nuts for them! And since I wanted to make something green for St. Patty’s Day this weekend, I decided to see if I could recreate my now favorite gelato flavor at home.

As many of you know that follow my blog, I am crazy about homemade dairy-free ice cream. I love all different flavors. But this may be my absolute new favorite. It is insanely good.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Friends!
