Mess-Free Healthy Homemade Ice Cream (Bonus: Chocolate With WowButter Bites)
Instead of buying frozen desserts, you can make them at home in less than 30 minutes. With the help of Zoku's ice cream maker, I made a gorgeous low-fat chocolate frozen dairy dessert with WowButter morsels in it. If you aren't allergic to peanuts, you could use peanut butter instead.
If there was ever a way to make apple pie healthier, it has to be apple crisp. Plus who needs all the extra work of making a pie crust? Let alone a double pie crust or a fancy lattice one. It's just too much work.
With carrot cake, you never know what you're gonna get. It's either too bland, too spicy, has too much icing or some stale piece of walnut in it. Now that I bake gluten-free and peanut-free, I thought I'd make it with Crunchy WowButter and avoid the stale walnut experience.
Chocolate and peanut butter are a classic combination. Before WowButter was invented, this taste sensation was off-limits to anyone with a peanut allergy. Well, I have something even better: WowButter Pillow Cookies. And they are magical. I've made mine gluten-free but if you don't need to be on a gluten-free diet, just omit the xanthan gum from my recipe and use regular flour.
WowButter Nanaimo Bars (Bonus: G-F and Mocha Options)
Nanaimo bars are a Canadian dessert named after Nanaimo, British Columbia. WowButter is a Canadian product made from non-GMO toasted soy. Since I couldn't use walnuts in the original recipe, I tried crunchy WowButter instead. Well, this dynamic Canadian duo was a huge hit with my family so I couldn't wait to share it with you.
My Thanksgiving menu this October (and November, when my American friends visit) is getting ever more popular. I struck a deal with the homemade winemakers - and yes, it involved brandy in a gluten-free pumpkin pie. No matter what your tastes are, I've left you plenty of wiggle room to personalize your own pumpkin pie this season.
Thanksgiving desserts seem to be the same ones every year - whether I am in Canada or the US. This year, I thought I'd try a gluten-free blueberry pudding cake made in my slow cooker. It's the ideal way to serve up a warm dessert without having to use my oven, stove, and microwave.
What's Thanksgiving without both pumpkin and pecan pie? Right. The turkey-loving winemakers in my life have inspired me (a-hem, um, bribed me) to come up with a gluten-free pecan pie that contained no corn syrup. So I used maple syrup. Actually, I was surprised that pecan pie wasn't traditionally made with maple syrup.
Espresso Chocolate or Toffee Date Squares (with G-F and Nut-Free Options)
I never thought much about date squares until my IT guy told me he loves them. So, I decided to make him a batch of gluten-free, nut-free date squares. And for my extended family, I made gluten-free coffee toffee date squares.
One of my all-time favorite Thai desserts is sticky rice with mango. I always wondered how to make it and was surprised how labor-intensive the authentic version is to create. I don't own a bamboo steamer - but I do have a kick ass rice cooker.
