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.
If you've ever had African braised chicken in peanut sauce, you'll love this dish. The subtle nutty flavour combined with hot peppers, curry and sherry makes this an easy meal to serve up on rice. For those of you on a peanut-free or gluten-free diet (or both), I've found WowButter to be the tastiest substitute.
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.
Pad thai is a flavourful stir-fried noodle dish that can be made with shrimp, chicken, tofu, egg, or crab. Most pad thai (aka phat thai) dishes contain roasted peanuts, fish sauce, and bean sprouts. But the recent bean sprout recalls are enough to keep my friends from eating pad thai (even those without an allergy to peanuts or fish).
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.
If you thought butter chicken was too much work or had too many hard-to-find ingredients, you are in for a treat. I found the simplest way to make it in your slow cooker with common everyday spices. What's more, my version is gluten-free, nut-free, and lighter on milk fat than most recipes.
Sometimes I'm in a slap-it-all together type of mood, especially after dinner. Last week, my friend shared her giant cookie with me and I thought I'd try to make one gluten-free at home. With the help of Sarah Carey's video and some tweaking, I figured it out.
Craig Claiborne, long-time food editor and restaurant critic for The New York Times once said, "There is nothing better on a cold wintry day than a properly made pot pie." I couldn't agree more. And since I've discovered how versatile WowButter is in sauces, I decided to create a Thai inspired peanut-free chicken pot pie.
