Perfect Grain-Free Pumpkin Pie

The hardest part of making any grain-free pie is not over-baking the crust! That’s because the delicate nut flours often used in grain-free baking are sensitive to high temperatures, as well as prolonged baking times. In an attempt to compensate, I’ve tried myriad ingredient combinations, handy-dandy pie crust shields, and even freezing the crust before filling and baking it. All of this resulted in the same old problem … an over-baked pie crust. So what’s a pumpkin pie lovin’ grain-free girl to do?

Simple Coconut Flour Cake (gluten and grain free, paleo) - Cranberry koeken met dadels. Zondag: tijd om koeken te bakken!

Cranberry koeken met dadels

En wel deze cranberry koeken met dadels. De koeken zijn ook nog eens niet heel ongezond, ze zijn zelfs detoxproof. Dat is altijd fijn bij koeken, aangezien je er dan gerust twee kunt nemen. Of drie. Cranberry koeken dus. Voor dit recept heb ik mij laten inspireren door Friesland. Ben jij wel eens in Friesland geweest? Wat betreft Fries eten kwam ik niet veel verder dan suikerbrood (wat ik trouwens ook echt nog een keer zelf wil maken) en Beerenburg. Friesland staat bekend om haar streekproducten. Na mijn bezoek aan Friesland was het tijd voor een Friese verdiepingscursus. Afgelopen week kwam mijn zusje twee nachtjes logeren. Ik heb het recept behoorlijk aangepast door de roomboter te vervangen door kokosolie, de suiker voor honing en het meel voor havermoutmeel en rijstmeel.

Chocolate Caramel Coconut Flour Brownies. Baking with coconut flour is such a great way to enjoy desserts and sweet treats if you’re gluten-free, have any nut allergies or are just transitioning into a healthier lifestyle.

Chocolate Caramel Coconut Flour Brownies

It’s a healthy alternative to traditional, grain flours and it’s loaded with benefits. Coconut flour is high in fiber, protein and healthy fats; it’s also low in sugar; and it can help your digestive system run smoothly. When’s the last time you got all that in a dessert?! Coconut flour is denser than grain flours, so you’ll often use less of it than when baking with grain flours. It’s also more absorbent, so adding extra moisture is important; think more eggs than usual. If you’ve never tried your hand at baking with coconut flour, my chocolate-caramel coconut flour brownies are the perfect introduction.

Start by combining your dry ingredients — coconut flour, cacao powder, baking soda, coconut sugar and chocolate chips ­­­— into a bowl. Pour the batter into a greased pan for easy removal later.
