Eating a gluten-free diet doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite foods. You can still eat scrumptious pizza, bread, even cookies, cakes and other desserts, prepared with a variety of gluten-free flours. Whether you are eliminating gluten from your diet because of an allergy or a new healthy eating plan, or you are simply trying to cut back your flour intake, you will enjoy these finger-licking-good recipes.
Gluten-Free Flour to the Rescue
1. Wheat Belly Pizza Crust
Rejoice, you no longer have to watch enviously as your friends dig into piping-hot, cheesy pizza! This pizza crust recipe, from Dr. William Davis’ popular book Wheat Belly, is wheat-free and has a hearty texture from chickpea flour, ground almonds and ground golden flaxseed meal. Add your favorite vegetables, sauce and cheese for a meal that everyone will love.
2. Paleo Bread
Sandwiches, toast, bruschetta… no more giving up your favorite bread-based treats. This gluten-free bread recipe is high in protein and has a subtle sweet, nutty flavor from its natural ingredients. The bread contains delicate almond flour, light, fluffy coconut flour, ground golden flaxseed meal, coconut oil and honey.
3. Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Nothing beats a sweet, chewy homemade chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the oven. Alton Brown’s gluten-free chocolate chip recipe is a huge hit, passing taste tests as “the real thing.” The cookies use brown rice flour, corn starch, tapioca flour, xantham gum and, of course, loads of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
